The USGA Stimpmeter for Measuring the Speed of Putting Greens1
- A. M. Radko
Prior to 1976, standards for measuring the speed and uniformity of putting greens were unavailable. In 1976 the USGA developed the Stimpmeter, a simple device which quickly measures the speed of putting greens. During 1976 and 1977 the USGA Green Section's agronomic staff tested and reported on more than 1,500 greens in 36 states. As a result of these tests, tables were developed which provide green speed test comparison information for (a) membership play and (b) greens in tournament condition.Please view the pdf by using the Full Text (PDF) link under 'View' to the left.
