Wyatt Harris, equipment technician at The Four Seasons Orlando, comes to us with under a year in the shop. Find out how Wyatt went from getting picked up from elementary school in a golf cart to crew to spray tech to the shop. Wyatt’s fresh perspective shines a light on the value of keeping it light and positive so that operators don’t fear the ‘grumpy mechanic’ and how handy a 90-degree drill is for QA5 reels. We discuss the value of volunteering and Wyatt’s days with John Patterson at Atlanta Athletic Club, and the calm a great leader can project in their shop even during a tournament advance week. We get to know a little about Wyatt: he’s a new dad (Congratulations! It’s the best!), a proficient bass player and enjoys Jiu Jitsu. Last, Trent asks the million dollar question - how do we attract the next generation of techs to turf?
