For love of the game


Michael Coleman, of Sidney, fits together loose bricks he just laid down around the putting green he is building in his front yard on Wapakoneta Avenue Wednesday, Feb. 22. Coleman said he fell in love with golfing 6 years ago. He always wanted a putting green so last year after tearing up an old flower bed last year he decided to build one. He bought carpet for a surface but plans on eventually replacing it with the same kind of artificial turf found on some professional putting greens. He will be renting a machine to help him flatten the ground underneath. Coleman expects to have the project done in the next week.
