The ATC Doublecut with Micah Woods

Bjarni Hannesson joined me on a late summer day from Reykjavik to discuss turfgrass management in Iceland and the surprising number of golf rounds played at courses in southwestern Iceland, how he handles frost delays, and whether #MLSN works in such a cold environment.

What is The ATC Doublecut with Micah Woods?

I discuss ATC blog posts, with supplementary information, stories, and the reasons why I thought the topic was worth writing about, and worth reading about. Thus, a doublecut of these topics. This covers grass selection, playability, and all the work done to create a certain type of turfgrass surface.
