Fertilizer Application

The dark green lines on #9 green are the result of a fertilizer misapplication.  There was a malfunction with a fertilizer spreader shield which prevents material to be broadcast to the right.  The lines are a result of that material deflecting back under the spreader creating an over application. 

The visual appearance of these lines will dissipate over time.  Also products in our greens maintenance program that will be applied, will mask the color contrast.  The growth of the green could be inconsistent initially. We will monitor this green taking steps to balance out any issues.
