Greens are healing very nicely and we hope to have speeds near normal by the end of the week. Today we are accomplishing a lot, the greens are being groomed and top dressed, our fairway fertilizer is going out and we are half way through spraying the rough with a wetting agent. The wetting agent aids our irrigation system by essentially making water wetter. Usually during the summer clay soils get locked up from being dry and not allowing water to easily move down to the roots. What the wetting agent does is put a coating on the clay particles and allows the water to makes it way into the soil unimpeded without having to over irrigate. This process saves on water usage and minimizes the labor needed to hand water the rough.
