The Golfdom Gallery: December 2014

1. Shooter!
We recently put out a call for photos of readers with celebrities. We were thrilled to receive this photo of Shannon Wheeler (right), superintendent at Wycliffe G&CC in Wellington, Fla., with one of our favorite movie villains — Shooter McGavin from Happy Gilmore, or as he’s known by his parents, Christopher McDonald.

2. The King and Bob
We figured if we’re going to run a photo of Bob Cook, superintendent at Walden on Lake Houston, Humble, Texas, with a shiner (see page 29), we owe it to him to also run this awesome photo of him with Arnold Palmer.

3. A big bird over Rain Bird
We were impressed when we were given a tour of Rain Bird headquarters in Tucson, Ariz., recently. Those guys pull out all the stops. We would have been happy with a box of donuts, but no, they arrange a flyover for our arrival? Classy!

4. A pint with Bono
Barry Larson, territory sales manager for Jacobsen, is clearly winning at life. After all, he had the good fortune to nab this photo with U2 lead singer Bono while in Ireland.

5. LeBron’s back, so is Golfdom
(L to R) Steve Galperin, VP of Finance and Operations, North Coast Media; Seth Jones, Golfdom editor-in-chief; and Joelle Harms, Digital Content Producer, took in LeBron James’ second regular season game back in a Cavs jersey. It hurt when LeBron left, but like Seth’s shirt says — all is forgiven.

6. Apel has Apple chargers
We were chatting with (L to R) Ted Fist and Martin Sternberg, CGCS, of Capillary Concrete when Golf Course Builders Association of America Executive Director Justin Apel stopped by with a cool portable iPhone charger. Thanks!
