Details the origin and breeding of the study, stating that "spontaneous mutation: In 1996, vegetative material (later designated 'TL2') taken from a disease resistant mutant plant on the fifteenth green at Novotel Palm Cove resort course near Cairns was included in an on-going program of selection and testing of promising 'Tifgreen' mutants by Tropical Lawns Pty Ltd." Reports the selection criteria "healthy vigorous growth during the tropical wet season, dense fine-textured appearance under close mowing, and dark green leaves." Concludes that the most similar varieties that were identified include: 'Tidwarf', 'TifEagle', 'MS-Supreme', 'Champion Dwarf', and 'FHB-135' (FloraDwarf).
