Abstract/Contents:Presents a study conducted to "determine the effect of mowing height, nitrogen rate and trinexapac-ethyl on golf ball lie in 'Tifsport' bermudagrass." Details methods and materials used in the study, stating that "'Tifsport' bermudagrass was established from sod in the spring of 2006 and cultural treatments were initiated in late summer, 2006...For analysis of golf ball lie, three golf balls were rolled onto each plot and digital images were taken of each ball using the device developed at the University of Arkansas which measures the percentage of the golf ball that is above the canopy." Reports that "for all three dates and the average of the three dates, there was a significant mowing height effect on ball lie. In addition, there was also a significant TE [trinexapac-ethyl] x mowing height interaction on two dates and when averaged across all three dates. Nitrogen rate did not affect ball lie in this study." Concludes that "mowing height had a significant effect on ball lie across all rating dates, which is similar to results reported earlier on Kentucky bluegrass...The growth regulator, TE, also improved ball lie, but only when the turf was maintained at a higher height of cut (25.0 or 37.5 mm [millimeters]). Increasing nitrogen fertilizer had no significant effect on ball lie in 'Tifsport' bermudagrass."
