Water Resources Director Tom Buschatzke appeared live Monday with Mike “Uncle Buck” Rafferty on NBC Sports Radio 1060 AM’s “For the Love of the Game” program. It was, in Uncle Buck’s words, “another glorious day to golf” – or at least to be talking about the nexus between the sport of golf and water. A genuine, heartfelt fan of golf and the golf industry, Uncle Buck peppered the director with a lot of well-developed questions about the importance of wise water use among golf courses. It was a fun interview. And for anyone curious about the extent to which golf courses now go to conserve water, an informative one. As noted, Uncle Buck came to the 17-minute interview prepared with insightful questions. In fact, their interview may represent the first time ever that a sports-radio talk-show host inquired about the complex genesis of groundwater management in Arizona.
