Who pissed off the superintendent?

The title phrase is a comment I'll here a lot when there are seemingly difficult cup locations. With the increased speeds that we are experiencing now in the middle of summer, I have retrained the crew on where we place the cup.

We currently have a grid system that works in conjunction with our GPS system, but within that grid, the crew has free range of where to put the cup. What we have trained the crew to do is to drop a ball from waist height at the area they have chosen. If the ball rolls more than 3ft away from the location, the location is unfair. This training technique along with the fact that all of our cup cutters play golf should make for good cup locations. Now all you have to do is sink the putt!
