Tyler Gullickson has
been chosen as an intern for the Southwest Region. Currently a senior at California State
Polytechnic University in Pomona, he is studying plant science under the
direction of Kelly Parkins.
Throughout his childhood, Tyler had been involved in sports,
so it seemed only natural that this love for sports led him to a summer job at
La Rinconada Country Club in Los Gatos, CA. It was during this time he
discovered that his love for the outdoors, horticulture and sports could all be
combined into a career in turfgrass management. Tyler also has worked at Coto
De Caza Golf & Racquet Club in Coto De Caza, CA and is the student manager
of the Center for Turf, Irrigation and Landscape Technology in Pomona, CA.
After graduation later this year, Tyler looks forward to
finding a position as a golf course superintendent.
