Here’s a side of Marc Leishman you might not know: he has a borderline obsession with his backyard.
“It’s certainly a passion,” Leishman says. “Bordering on an obsession.”
In the video below, the Victorian reveals he mows his lawn nearly every day, and short enough to replicate the feel of a putting green. He uses several different mowers and strategies to create the perfect striped look and feel under his feet.
“I kind of became obsessed with how I could get stripes on it and just make it look like a green even though it didn’t play like one,” Leishman said. “I would say I’m kind of a perfectionist with this, just because it’s something I really enjoy.”
“When passion meets inspiration, an obsession is born.” – Anonymous
