Topdressing in the Rain

Customers and crew members alike think I am crazy to be topdressing in the rain today.  While I wouldn't consider today's wetting event a rain, most people have and are going to stay away from the course today meaning I am going to affect fewer golfers than if I were to topdress the previous Monday (179 golfers).  What is also great about getting the sand out now is that the rain is going to work the sand into the canopy allowing us to safe on precious water.  

It is said that Superintendents love to punch holes and topdress regularly just to agitate golfers, but I hope I have at least proved to you that we do put a lot of thought into your agitation.  :-)
