Why are these greens slow and spongy?

I love when #turftwitter steps up. Just like all other social media you get some fun. But the golf course superintendent community steps up and helps.

Greg Brandriet asks on Twitter.

Q: Why are these greens slow and spongy?

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

Bryan Tipton, CGCS @TiptonCGCS – But don’t do aerification! Lol

Matthew James @Matthew198James – Inert sandy original profile that produces high levels of thatch?

Tom @2LDgP1FSZP3L9hO – Because it’s mowed at 1/4 “

Dinger @GDingr – That’s a beautiful tee surface!

sean doherty @theseandoherty – Is that small traces of iron oxidation in the soil?

Jason Barndt @BarndtJason – The type of wetting agent applied may have something to do with it.

Chris Carpenter @carpeedo – Hoc
