So a big thank you to Golf Course Trades for running my interview with Dr. Richard Hurley, PhD., a.k.a. Dr. Turfgrass. From the article:
“For 40 years Dr. Hurley has been at the forefront of turfgrass development. He’s named strains of grass after Arnold Palmer and Ben Crenshaw, (that was handsomely done, a fine tribute). He’s installed a putting green at the White House for Bill Clinton. And decade after decade his R&D has resulted in turfgrasses used at not only Augusta National but at thousands of courses around the country. Now, Dr. Hurley believes he’s arrived at the culmination of his life’s research: 007XL, not just an improvement upon existing turfgrasses, but a zenith, an apex of the craft.”
You can read the rest here. We’ll probably also have a Golf Course Trades lunch webinar in the near future.
