Bob Sorensen, an assistant golf course superintendent of The Golf Club at Redlands Mesa in Grand Junction, Colorado stands at a vantage point during a routine inspection of the golf course. (Bob Sorensen is featured in the book What I Eat: Around the World in 80 Diets.) He played football at Mesa State College in Grand Junction and graduated with a degree in criminal justice. Just before he took a desk job in his chosen profession he decided that he didn't want a desk job and found one that requires his constant attendance of the great outdoors, at a golf course at the foot of the majestic Colorado National Monument. Some of his work is physical, but technology makes his irrigation chores easier. From one of many rock outcrops overlooking the lush fairways and greens in the dry, high desert valley, he can control a matrix of sprinklers with a single radio controller. He earned a second degree in turf management, supervises a small crew of greenskeepers, and coaches high school football at Palisade High School.
