Golfdom Gallery: February 2016 takes us to BTME and STMA

By |  February 18, 2016 0 Comments

1. Not in Kansas anymore
En route to the British Turfgrass Management Expo, Golfdom EIC Seth Jones gets an eyeful of York Minster, one of the finest cathedrals in Europe.

2. Driver for show
All of us at Golfdom, including Publisher Pat Roberts (R), wish Jacobsen’s Peter Driver (L) a happy retirement. Next stop for Driver? A South African safari.

3. San Diego Amigos
A friendship forged at the 2015 Golfdom Summit, (L) Corey Kimball, president of Nu-Green, joins Golfdom’s Jake Goodman at the Sports Turf Managers Association conference in San Diego.

4. A president, an editor and a CEO walk into a British turfgrass conference…
It’s not unusual for (L to R) GCSAA president John J. O’Keefe, CGCS, Jones and Rhett Evans, GCSAA CEO, to run into each other on the road (and now, across the pond).

5. Hop on
We enjoy rare beers here at Golfdom, so we had to taste Hop on Board, exclusively for the Virgin trains traveling from London.

6. How’s the Withers over there?
Roberts caught up with David Withers, president of Jacobsen, on his home turf at the BTME show.

7. Kuhns on tour
Seth and Mark Kuhns, CGCS, Baltusrol, got reacquainted at the BTME show, where Mark insisted he had no 2016 PGA Championship updates. And for good reason: The last time these two hung out was only a few weeks ago.

8. Too many time zones
Think Seth travels a lot? Well, we were impressed by Kevin Crowe, senior vice president and agronomist for SubAir Systems, when we saw him Tuesday at the BTME show (with Seth), and again on Thursday that same week at the STMA show (with Grant B. Gannon).
