Putting a Little Spin on It, V. 2

Read First Chapter

Since Mark Leslie’s "Putting a Little Spin on It: The Design’s the Thing!" was published, golfers and other readers in the golf industry have awaited its companion volume, "Putting a Little Spin on It: The Grooming’s the Thing!" 
The wait is over.

Golf industry professionals have been enjoying Leslie’s feature stories and interviews for 25 years, since his first days as founding editor of Golf Course News (now Golf Course Industry). His work has appeared in golf publications in America and abroad, winning him six national writing awards.

While the first volume was packed with Leslie’s best quotes from the players/course architects like Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus and Ben Crenshaw to a multitude of golf course architects like Pete Dye, Tom Fazio, Tom Doak and Robert Trent Jones Sr. and Jr., this new edition is overflowing with the best from "the other side" of golf, those men and women involved in maintenance.

Famous within the world of golf course grooming, they include superintendents Ted Horton, Tim Hiers, Bruce Williams, Mel Lucas, Terry Buchen, Jerry Faubel, Palmer Maples Jr. and Bob Mitchell; USGA Green Section’s Jim Snow, Stan Zontak, Patrick O’Brien and others; Drs. Joe Vargas, James Beard and Frank Rossi from the realm of university research; and leaders in the world of golf course equipment, supplies and management.
