When a measure becomes a target, it ceases to be a good measure.
That’s a generalization of Goodhart’s law. I’m an advocate of measuring some surface performance, plant, and soil parameters.
I spent a morning with Brad Revill at Nikanti GC last month. I wanted to see the course, get some measurements, see the clipping volume measurement, and talk about turf management with Brad.
I’ve recorded a quick video to describe the presentation I delivered at Nutranta’s Best Practices seminar last week.
I spoke about a continuous improvement system for turfgrass.
In the presentation, I mentioned the article A Year of Measuring Putting Green Performance by Chris Hartwiger.
