Bernhard Langer Triumph at Belmont. Magic Week.

fake-grass Bernhard Langer Triumph at Belmont. Magic Week.
The 2015 Constellation Senior Players Championship was "a magic week" for Bernhard Langer, two-times Masters Champion, who lead wire-to-wire victory at the Belmont Country Club, Massachusetts. It became Bernhard's 81st individual triumph. This time, he won six shots over Kirk Triplett.

In the last round of the Constellation Senior Players Championship, ending with a 3-under 68 closing round and a 6-shot margin of triumph, Langer achieves his 24th career win on the Campions Tour. He became the first senior golfer to repeat as Senior Players winner since Arnold Palmer in 1984-1985.

The triumph extended Langer's streak of winning at least one Champions Tour event each year of his membership, starting in 2007. Usually, Langer didn't wait long for his opening victory of the season. He won twice in his first start, three times in his third, twice in his fourth.

Over his initial nine starts, Langer had his share of consecutive ends (five top-10s), but no wins. Only in 2012 Langer won on his 14th Champions Tour. This year, calm and methodical Langer was growing impatient by the start of the 48th week.

Called the golf's international man of mystery for 25 years since his first Masters championship in 1985, Bernhard Langer is the golf's most pronounced stoic. He was placed in the Top 10 88 times, and he finished in the top 25 120 times.

Most players are struggling to understand the Belmont's greens, but with a help of Terry Holt, Langer felt comfortable. He opened 65-65, three-putted twice the week and averages thirty putts per round. Impressive 89 percent for someone who doesn't recall being in the Boston area before.

"I think I was, throughout my career, fairly consistent and had a lot of good years," - said Langer once. "I might have been a little bit better than the average player as well. I tried to stay in shape and I'm still playing some golf and having fun doing it. There're lot of other guys who do the same. I think I just feel that I can still improve myself, I can still learn about my technique and the way I play golf. I can still become a better chipper and putter of the golf ball and if I can improve just a little bit, let's say a stroke a day, that would be phenomenal because it would mean three of four shots for the week, which means that I would be up there at the top of the leaderboard somewhere."

"Congratulations, Mr. Langer!" - Dave Maronic is excited to see the golf legend win once again. Dave with the team visited Bernhard Langer private residence in Southern Florida two years ago. "It's amazing what a man can do if he spent as much time on green as Bernhard Langer. He loves the game, and with a golf settings in his backyard, he can practice anytime. As some say - no pain or suffering with Mr. Langer - just pure, beautiful golf."

Putting Greens - US is Back to More Resilient Surfaces

 

Shock pads are the ideal way to add safety and resilience to the artificial grass surface. In sports industry, shock pads are often referred as an "insurance policy." According to FIFA-endorsed regulations, the shock-attenuation testing (or G-Max) is recommended for every sports field. You can get a good G-max without a shock pad, but if you like to have safer, more resilient surface, you might consider installing shock pads beneath the turf.

Shock pads make sense. Do you want to improve safety? Just lay down the pad before synthetic turf installation. From Astroturf with its nylon carpet, most artificial grass manufacturers turned their attention to infill solutions.

Rubber infill lowers G-Max to acceptable levels. When the surface compression is high, the surface feels much softer. It works great for children, but in competitive sports and golf, you need the ball rolling with a certain speed. For example, the acceptable green speed with infill for our putting greens can be as high as 14-15 on the Stimp-meter BRD. On the softer sports fields athletes get more tired than usual. Ideally, the surface must feel normal yet ensure safety.

But there is a definite mishap with the infill. It migrates on the turf surface, and the level thins especially in areas with heavy traffic. It is not just about uneven surface. Migration of infill hardens the surface reduces infill compaction and causes the degradation in performance over time. Again, it does not apply to residential or commercial projects where the traffic is low to medium. But in sports industry shock pads are crucial.

Shock pads reduce the amount of infill (and subsequent infill "splash") by lowering the height of the fiber pile and increasing the density of the pile itself. The concept of having shock pads inside infill itself had changed due to low shock-attenuation levels and extensive maintenance. Today, most business owners regard shock pads like just like an extra insurance.

Shock pads differ in density and thickness. If you are installing putting greens, it is a good idea to install 8 mm shock pad. Important thing to understand about the quality of shock pads is its tear and wear resistance, low water absorption and high shock absorption.

In this sense, chemically Closed-Cell Polyethylene Foam is the perfect material for padding. Low moisture permeability and high buoyancy combined with a smooth, delicate feel and superior physical and chemical properties, the foam is the ideally shock-€absorber.
