Ball bounce on greens after 7 days of rain

Practice greens at Keya GC on a rainy August morning

I’ve been at Keya Golf Club for the KBC Augusta tournament this week. Yesterday afternoon I watched some shots during the first practice round, and took a few videos of ball reaction on the greens.

I’m especially interested in how the ball reacts on the greens because there was 32 mm (1.25 inches) of rain yesterday morning. That was the seventh consecutive day with rainfall.

Seven. That’s one more time than the greens have been sand topdressed in the past three years. Because the greens have only been topdressed twice this year, twice in 2018, and twice in 2017, I wanted to confirm that the surface firmness of the greens was still fine for the tournament.
