Jason Barrington @BarringtonJason – HOC, too thick/too much grass, not topdressing frequent enough, are you watering too much, are you using a growth regulator, how much are they growing in a day. This is where I would start.
Greg Brandriet @SuperGregB – I just inherited these greens. All of these questions were asked
Jason Barrington @BarringtonJason – What type of grass are on the greens?
Cory Brown @Brown_Golf – I’d be curious to know how old this green is?
Josh Irish @Ndjish – The solution to pollution is dilution
Danny Rich @dlrich17 – They look comfortable

Chris Carpenter @carpeedo – Hoc
