Abstract/Contents:"Golf courses are often judged by their putting green quality. One of the measures of putting green quality is the rate at which a ball decelerates on the putting surface or as is more commonly known, green speed. The purpose of the putting green speed study is to evaluate grooming and PGR treatments alone and combination at two different cutting hights as to their effect on green speed. There was a significant difference in stimpmeter values between cutting heights on 16 of the 17 evaluation dates. One speed following the PGR treatment and the control for appoximately 3-5 days. A flush of growth occurred after the effects of the PGR treatmentds to be lower than the control. In summary, PGR treatments appear to have some promise for effectively slowing turf growth and thereby decreasing friction. A more extensive study with these strategies and others is being planned for 1991."
