USGA Summary Points:#28 sand had the lowest volumetric water content and produced the highest ball reaction. #28 sand with 15% silt+clay had the highest volumetric water content and produced the lowest ball reaction. It was observed that as soil moisture levels decreased, ball reaction increased while pitch mark depth decreased. These observations suggest that a golf ball landing on a drier soil (particularly with a coarser material) creates a shallower pitch mark resulting to a longer ball bounce and roll.
