Monthly Turfgrass Roundup: January 2018
Frost, turf Twitter analysis, fairway stripes, MLSN, why fertilize?, golf adaptation, traditions of golf course design, dollar spot models, turfgrass diseases, and much more
I did a turfgrass Twitter analysis.
The results are in a searchable and sortable Turf Twitter 2017 Shiny app.
Kevin Murdoch shared this stunning photo of Victoria GC and Mt. Baker.
A turfgrass instructor wrote, “I’ve been asked to give a seminar on MLSN.” This is was my reply.
Giles Morgan says – about golf – “never has a sport needed to adapt more. And now."
Joe Gulotti believes MLSN will save middle class golf.
Sam Thomas wrote in Golf Course Architecture about a return to the traditions of golf course design.
Craig Haldane showed recent mowing patterns from the Dubai Desert Classic:
The USGA published their 2017 Green Section Record Compendium.
The NC State Turf Diagnostics Lab produced a fascinating annual review of turfgrass diagnostic samples.
Albert Bancroft showed partial covering of bentgrass greens in Japan. No frost delays!
After a day reprieve, frost is back. We only partially cover greens, that works well for us. pic.twitter.com/iIgHOUszDf— Albert Bancroft (@alban3074) January 9, 2018
Jason Haines asked “Why do we fertilize our grass?"
Jason also explained how the temperature-based growth potential can be used as a communication tool.
Henry Peters went to Royal Colombo.
I taught three workshops and made one presentation at BTME. All the slides and summaries are posted here.
Idris Evans showed a different look of fairway striping:
