speed of 9.5 feet. We continue to push the greens as aggressively as
resources and Mother Nature will allow. The greens are still wet from
the additional rain on Thursday (.27") and Saturday AM (.25"). The
high dewpoints (upper 60's) is keeping our air at a high humidity
level which makes it difficult for the greens to transpire and
evaporation to take place. Forecasters are calling for this pattern to
continue through today with a possible chance of storms this evening.
This pattern should break in time for aerification.
Our plan is to still aerify the greens with a solid tine on
Wednesday. We will add another very light topdressing and brush into
the process to assist with drying the greens out. Additionally, I have
yet again increased our growth regulator rates on the greens last week
to help aid in speeds. We are currently double the rate than that put
on fairways and tees. We have also continued a daily roll with our
mowing over the last 12 days.
