Probably the most famous Greenskeeper in the world is Carl Spackler of Caddyshack. This character played by Bill Murray is one of my all-time favorite characters from one of my all-time favorite movies. Carl has an interesting outlook on life, and some of his lines from the movie are a mainstay in this industry's vernacular. So, brush up on your Carl-isms by clicking on the photos below (each photo correlates with the quote), and listen to Carl preach the gospel!
