Dir. Tom Buschatzke appears on "For the Love of the Game"

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.
