Today we’re talking to Brickyard Crossing Golf Course Assistant Superintendent Phillip Fisher about utilizing clipping yield to help determine input intervals.
Today we’re at Bedford Golf and Tennis talking to Bob Nielsen, CGCS. Bob is going to demonstrate a BMP he utilizes to prevent fairway pesticide and fertilizer applications from going down the drain and into the water system. It’s inexpensive and has a tremendous impact on reducing point source pollution.
Here I am in Westerville, OH, 6 days into my adventure, and I’m ready for this rest day…with good reason. Here are my stats for the riding I’ve done so far.
Elevation gain (feet climbed): 37,197
Segment 1 will be far and away the toughest 6 days of riding throughout the entire tour. NY, PA, WV and eastern OH don’t have a flat spot…anywhere!!! Downhills, which have always been a favorite of mine, were always followed by uphills. After awhile, I started to look at downhills like the Grim Reaper. But now we’re in the Mid West…America’s flatland!! I’ll have some long mileage rides while in the Mid West but with very little climbing…wind. Let’s hope the wind gods are on vacation the next two weeks!
Segment 2 has me riding 8 days before my next rest day. I’m scheduled to ride 861 miles and climb 14,241 ft in those 8 days before stopping in Sioux City, IA.
Until next time.
