Geoff Shackelford on Morning Drive, USGA Green Speed Study

An interesting discussion on the Golf Channel regarding ball roll on greens and length of time to complete a round.  Plant health is known to decline as green speed gets to a certain level and higher for any given time, especially during the high heat of summer.  Ball roll can be increased drastically in the fall but this is normally associated with lower humidity and slowed growth of turf.  Also, turf disruption is usually kept to a minimum until aeration so a ball can turn into a rocket ship this time of year without creating plant health issues.
