Ball bounce on greens after 7 days of rain
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.
Yesterday afternoon I watched some shots in the #KBCオーガスタ practice round to check ball reaction on the greens. This is on the 194 yard 17th (member 8th), and I slowed down and zoomed in the ball landing. pic.twitter.com/5JoQve3OdP— Micah Woods (@asianturfgrass) August 26, 2019
Here's another one. I was especially interested in how the ball would react because this was the 7th consecutive day with rain, and these shots came after 32 mm (1.25 inches) of rain this day. pic.twitter.com/LWyTOU8su2— Micah Woods (@asianturfgrass) August 26, 2019
One more from behind the green. This was nearly a hole in one. pic.twitter.com/JfJyqMySfk— Micah Woods (@asianturfgrass) August 26, 2019
