With preparations coming to an end, Tritabaugh gives credit to his staff of turf professionals and the Toro mowing and irrigation equipment for the pristine course conditions at Hazeltine.

“It’s truly an honor to have Hazeltine on the world’s stage and host many of today’s top professional golfers,” explained Tritabaugh. “We couldn’t have done it without three things: the hard work from our staff here at Hazeltine, the great relationship with our distributor, MTI Distributing, and top-quality mowing and irrigation equipment from Toro.”

According to Tritabaugh, hosting the event has really energized his crew, and the team is excited to have their work on display for the global golfing community. Tritabaugh has been using Toro equipment for a number of years and claims the premium equipment has been essential in preparing the course for the upcoming tournament.

“With our partner MTI Distributing, we are honored to support Chris and his team as they prepare the course at Hazeltine to star on the world’s stage during this prestigious event,” said Michael J. Hoffman, chairman and chief executive officer of The Toro Company. “We take pride in our long-standing relationship with Hazeltine just as we are humbled to have served so many of the Ryder Cup host courses dating back to the very first in 1927.”
