"TPC Sawgrass greens in rough shape week before Players"

Last year it was Quail Hollow, this year some of the TPC Sawgrass greens are in less than perfect shape heading into The Players The PLAYERS. Rex Hoggard took a tour and posted this item, with more details apparently coming tomorrow on Morning Drive.

From Hoggard's report:

Nos. 4, 9, 11, 12 and 14 were “negatively impacted by (a) misapplication of a product to help manage density and root development during the colder, winter period,” according to a memo that was posted on a Tour-players only website on March 27.

The Tour spokesman declined to comment at this time.

Nearly two weeks of warm, dry conditions have helped the greens recover, but the putting surfaces at Nos. 4, 9, 11 and 12 continue to show damage and the grass plugs used to replace turf.
