"Practice? Practice??? We’re talking about practice? I mean, we’re talking about . . . PRACTICE!?” The speaker was a well-known professional basketball player. The object of his scorn was, obviously, practice, and the contempt in which he held it was apparent to all. His ire had been raised by the fact that his employer wanted him, in return for the millions of dollars that they paid him, to attend and participate in practice."
That was the opening of an excellent piece by golf superintendent David Kuypers on practice facilities and the Cutten Club's decision to build a new practice facility. The Alan Iverson reference is funny. The piece was published by the USGA and can be read on this PDF link:
David touched on more than building a new facility. He also talked about what players need and what they should do to make practice more effective.
