How do you enjoy it? You torment him.
For example, in this most recent issue of Golfdom, I had Hendren do a GIS products wrap-up feature for us. He pretty much nailed it, too, giving a superintendent perspective on the cool stuff he saw at the GIS. That's valuable to Golfdom.
We titled the story "Hendo's Hot List." No, we're not going to win a TOCA award for that title next year. But the idea I had... well, I thought the idea was solid. We use that title, then take a photo of Hendren touching something hot, or shooting a fireball out of his hands, or something...
Well, that was the idea. As you can see from the May issue, it didn't turn out as super-awesome as I had envisioned it in my mind.
But what the heck, you've got to try your luck every once in a while, right?
I'll mostly blame my model for this "concept" failing, and only partially blame the guy who came up with the concept.
What we published in the last issue was a photo of Hendo holding some fake-looking fire. We used about the best photo I got of Hendo for this concept.
What did some of the other photos look like? Well, I'm glad you asked...
