A Ryder Cup miscellany, in charts

I was recently at Hazeltine National Golf Club for the Ryder Cup. When I arrived, I was informed that it had been extraordinarily rainy since early to mid-August. I had a chance to observe the rain myself as well. I wondered just how extraordinary the rain was, so I looked it up.

Another thing I looked at was when, who, and about what were people communicating with Chris Tritabaugh, the golf course superintendent at Hazeltine National Golf Club.

Zooming in to just one hour on Saturday morning, one can see accounts grouped into conversations based on who was communicating at that time.
