Data Collection For The 2011 PLAYERS

The Agronomy team of TPC Sawgrass has been collecting data on the putting surfaces for the past three weeks leading up to the 2011 PLAYERS. We have been utilizing three pieces of equipment to collect data regarding firmness, moisture, and ball roll distance.

For firmness, we have been using the USGA Trufirm meter.

For moisture, we have been using the Field Scout Moisture Meter.

For ball roll distance, we have been using the USGA Stimpmeter.Each of these three pieces of equipment allows us to have a better idea of where the greens are and what we need to do to provide the playing conditions that are demanded for this years' tournament. After three weeks of data collection and interpretation, we feel that our putting surfaces will be in superb condition for the 2011 PLAYERS.
