I have worked with Wayne for 23+ years and he called me a bozo to many times to count. That was one of the things I really appreciated about Wayne, I always knew where I stood. He was one of the few people who could keep me on track at times. He was my go to guy. I could always depend on Wayne to handle things that I needed done, I wouldn't have to think about it again, because I knew it would be done. We've had our differences over the years, but we managed to come through them all, usually a little wiser for it. We went through everything here at Augusta National, 23 years, 24 tournaments, many days lasting from dark to dark and just another hour or so. Everything from the daily maintenance, to inventing, building, installing, removing, rebuilding, teaching and yes, even cutting grass. Who would have thought? I learned a lot from Wayne, and maybe I even managed to teach him a few things. The Jack of all Trades even wished he could have been as good as we were!
I will truly miss that gruff guy....Wayne. God Bless your family in this time of sorrow.
