Spread cores from the good green on number 18 that we haven't messed with yet. We'll see how it does. Front nine still getting better but slowly.

Yeah the only thing that has a chance is if some poa seeds ended up in there. I would consider the nursurey green it wouldnt cost that much. you only need 6 inches of top mix since you are not putting in any cups.

Hmmm. That wouldn't be a bad idea for me to put in at home. I have the land and some farm equipment so it wouldn't be hard to do.

Yeah it's amazing how that much bare ground can fill it like that. Also amazing how complete that winter kill was and how places that we haven't touched yet are still dead.

Like this back tee box that we aren't using that I took a picture of yesterday.

The greens are filled in pretty well except 18 (and it doesn't lack much).

Plugged areas now puttable.

Number 15.

And 18 that we started playing on Saturday.

Really cool. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks.

I'm sure that it has been a lot of work but the results speak for themselves. Must be rewarding to see your efforts paying off.


Hoping we don't ever have to repeat it. :-D Since we see it everyday it even surprises me when I look at the difference from the early pics and how much filled in.

I'm just glad that now I'm making some putts and when I miss it's my fault instead of not knowing if it was me or the green.

There have been more golfers the last couple of weeks and we are hoping for a good holiday weekend this week.

Labor day has come and gone cool nights ahead!!

Sooner or later. ;-)

All of this rain we are getting every afternoon is really growing the fairways and rough. Having to mow much of the Bermuda rough in granny low and go over it twice to keep it from looking like a hayfield.

Greens are pretty good now so these will probably be my last pics of them.

Still a slight mix of Bermuda and but since we over-seeded with bent a few weeks ago (and the weather is cooler) the bent is becoming the more dominant grass. They should be good bent greens next year.

If there is any place in the South that calls for bent grass it's right here. In hindsight I would have to say that the Bermuda experiment was a failure. Even thought the Bermuda greens were very nice there is just too much chance of winter kill here on the mountain. Truthfully we don't have nearly the summer problems with bent grass that most places in the South have anyway.

repeate after me.. fungicides and fans are my friends lol. Good job they look really good.

Thanks.

+1 to the fungicides. ;-) We don't have or use any fans and rarely would need them except for one green in a bowl to watch pretty closely. Wind almost always blows at the course and the summer daytime temps are 8 to 10 degrees lower than in the valley. (I don't even have an air conditioner).

I hate those fans anyway. Ruins my peace and quiet. Reminds me I have a rule question on those fans I need to ask or look up in the rules forum.

Tip of the hat for all the hard work and pride you take. Great thread.

Thanks. Maybe next year will be better. My boss always says that "The hole and the greens are the most important part of the golf course because that's the final destination."

    • Hi guys, Ive went and bought a set of Mizuno JPX 921 Forged irons from eBay, prob is l never read the description fully, they are 2 degrees flat. Im 6ft, 36" wrist to floor and using Ping's guide that would make me 2 degrees up(green). My current irons are Titleist AP1 718 and the are more upright from std than the mizunos.... So l know l can have them bent, but do you think going from 2 flat to 2 up will be ok for the clubs...? Thanks Brendan
    • I just can't believe this on top of everything else has happened to him, he was supposed to win 25 majors and at least 10 green jackets and everything just derailed in 2009 and just setback after setback. We got a brief taste of his greatness at Augusta and then the world has to stop and just before we can see the second encore this has to happen.?When he had it all clicking in the early 2000's no one has ever played this game better than him and I don't think we will see anyone ever at least in our lifetimes dominate professional golf like he did ever. When I heard the news I just felt an emptiness I really never felt before about the game, sure the world keeps spinning on its axis but it's just never going to be the same for me on Sunday at Augusta.
    • I watched this video twice. I found it very interesting. Here's what I heard. First, I think the biggest point Mark was trying to make is that a golfer should in an ideal world built their bag one club at a time. As you go to lower and lower lofted clubs, you are more and more likely to need some help getting the ball in the air. It is hard to create proper launch conditions without enough loft. Where in the bag that happens (be it your 6 iron or your 2 iron) will depend upon your delivery, your swing speed, and it will be different for everyone. Some folks can hit a 2 iron. Other folks should drop from their 6 iron on up and go to a SGI iron or a hybrid.  Second, higher loft produces higher consistency. The trend of getting everything lower and lower lofted while possibly helping you hit the long irons, it might be hurting you in the short irons and traditionally higher lofted clubs. Loft is your friend when it comes to consistency.  Third, the further you are from target, the harder it is to hit target... No matter who you are. Fourth, higher handicap golfers are less consistent (i.e. have more bad shots) than lower handicap golfers. This creates a ton of what Mark called "noise" in the data. And with all that noise you can make an argument for anything you like. Therefore be careful when you are testing/getting fitted, because a fitter/salesperson can make what ever they want out of the data.  Finally, better players hit all clubs better. Worse players hit all clubs worse. The archer is more important than the arrow.
    • I apologize for resurrecting this thread but I thought this would be relevant information. The difference between Tiger's dip and Hogan's dip is that Hogan stopped the dip past P6 and only raised his head from that point on, even while hitting a driver. Tiger's just kept dipping past P7 and maybe P8. Mac O'Grady also raised his head in the downswing as well after his dip, just a bit earlier at P5 onwards. I believe this is a big part of the reason why Tiger needed multiple back surgeries and Hogan none, even Byron Nelson needed back surgery in his 40s as recalled in his autobiography and he definitely had a major head dip that continued past P7.  Now, I notice this head raising in downswing move after the post P4 dip only occurs with Hogan and Mac and very very very few others; I'd say 99.99% of golfers including the top tour pros today continue to dip past P6 and P7 especially with the longer clubs. That would mean only a handful of golfers in the world would truly pass Key #1 if this move was required to master it.
