With just over two weeks into June and 83mm of rainfall. This compared to 1mm for the whole of last June. Making it the forth wettest June in 21 years. The only real negative from this high rainfall, is an outbreak of Red Thread. It is a disease that develops, due to the leaching of available nutrients from the soil, therefore not making them available for the grass plant. It is currently a nationwide issue, having spoken to colleagues around the country.

It was interesting to note that the greens at Pebble Beach are predominately Poa. It is very unusual nowadays  for a Major venue to have Poa based greens. Congratulations must be given to the Superintendant for producing such good surfaces.
