A View from the Shed
It is looking increasingly likely, that July will see no rainfall here at Westridge. A first, certainly since we have been recording the weather. That will make a combined total of 1mm, for June & July. This compared to the wettest June/July combined of 229mm, back in 2007 !
The course continues to dry out, giving it a very Heathland/Links look about it. We have irrigation to Green’s, Tee’s & Surrounds, therefore, I have no concerns regarding this prolonged dry spell.
Congratulations to Francesco Molinari on winning the 147th Open Championship. It is always interesting to see how the R & A want the course presented. I was a little surprised to see the Tee’s had not been irrigated though. A big well done to the Greenkeeping staff at Carnoustie, an excellent job in testing conditions.
