Rain Bird, John Deere and Golfdom are partnering once again to bring the 2022 Underdogs of Turf calendar for the fifth year. The brainchild of Kasey Kauff, director of grounds at Trinity Forest Golf Club in Dallas, the calendar features hundreds of dogs from superintendents around the country.

“John Deere is excited to once again support the making of the Underdogs of Turf Calendar,” said Robert Schmidt, global manager of market development & strategy, John Deere Golf. “Like much of the industry, we look forward to the calendar each year and can’t wait to see whose dogs appear.”

“Whether they are big or small, young or old, all dogs have a place in the underdog calendar — that’s what makes it so special and why Rain Bird loves being a part of it,” said Matthew Corentin, golf specification manager, Eastern U.S., Rain Bird Corp. “It might not be the first dog calendar, but it’ll definitely be the best!”

Craig MacGregor, publisher of Golfdom, added, “The Underdogs of Turf calendar has become a great tradition for us here at Golfdom. I want to thank everyone who makes this calendar possible — our partners, Rain Bird and John Deere, as well as everyone who participates and sends in a photo of their dog. Remember, with our calendar, every dog doesn’t just get his day … he gets an entire month!”
