Ask JW: Perfecting Putting Green Surfaces – Part 3


Hello, everyone! I hope all is well. In my last column, I wrote about how placing infill causes imperfections in putting green surfaces. We also learned that placing infill at proper elevations supports ballast, reduces wear, prevents settlement/depressions, and maintains Stimpmeter speeds. This month, I will teach a process that I developed decades ago called “cutting”. This easy technique creates a smooth putting surface and maintains Stimpmeter speeds. 

This month ASK JW will start a continue the series that will provide educational information along with tips and tricks in perfecting putting green surfaces.
