Abstract/Contents:Discusses the incidence of purple-colored patches of bentgrass in periods of cool weather. Summarizes the potential cause of the discoloration, explaining that "as temperatures cool, some bentgrass plants produce the red pigment anthocyanin, a stress-response chemical." Adds that discoloration may occur in small clumps of segregated bentgrass clones and that, while potentially inevitable, "they rarely have any impact on playability."
