Once a year we at Precision Greens make a bit of an escape to a golf tournament on the amazing Salt Spring Island. For the many years we’ve been going there have been many good times shared with friends old and new. On this particular year in 2009, the field at the tourney was strong and the red wine was stronger. I found myself playing very well, the best I have in a few years. As I completed the second round I was +4 for the tournament. I walked to the scoreboard to find that I came in second, losing by two strokes. What’s funny about this is that I found the person that came in first and it was a man that I installed a putting green for the year prior. Why did I install a green for THIS GUY! I told him congratulations and he looked down at his putter and said “I didn’t miss a putt all day.” ARGH!
I came in second at the golf tournament that year but I feel I can also be credited with helping this person finish first through the installation of a custom made, synthetic turf professional training aid! Am I resentful of this installation? No. This customer has had us back to install a patio, water feature and a few hundred square feet of artificial turf. If I was going to finish second to anyone, I was glad it was him.
Thank you Dave!
