Guest on the Talking Greenkeeper show
We talked about elephant footprints, the MLSN soil nutrient guidelines, measuring clipping volume, my book A Short Grammar of Greenkeeping, the temperature-based turfgrass growth potential, this year’s challenging weather, whether one needs to core and topdress putting green turf, where a #TurfFights episode might be staged, and much more.

A few miscellaneous things come to mind.
Joe mentioned a blog post I’d written entitled “Some Rise, some fall, some climb.” Here’s a direct link to that post, which was about clipping volume, animated.
I mentioned a quote about difficulty convincing someone of something when their salary depends on them not understanding it. I was referring to Upton Sinclair’s statement that “It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends upon his not understanding it!”
We also discussed some posts about MLSN and math. If you want to have a closer look at this, I’d suggest these:
- Jason Haines' post on MLSN math step-by-step
- Joe’s post on MLSN math, which he called The keyboard is mightier than the fist: how MLSN will save middle class golf
- Brad Revill’s blogs about MLSN. There are four posts here, all with a little bit of calculation, perhaps most extensively demonstrated in MLSN update and calculations.
- I mentioned the MLSN cheat sheets—those are available for download here.
- What do Ninja tines, PoaCure, ClipVol, the Smith-Kerns disease model, ball roll, and MLSN have in common?
