Abstract/Contents:Discusses a study designed to "investigate the effects of slope and wetness on a golf ball" and to "derive a formula that can be used to find the 'true' Stimpmeter reading on a sloped green." Results indicate that "water soaked into the green, where no puddles formed, did not appear to have a large impact." Also includes "an effective method to calculate the Stimpmeter reading of a green where no sufficiently level spot exists."
