Today is the Illinois Turfgrass Iexpo at the Midwest Golf House in Lemont. The I expo brings together research and turf managers for a day of education and networking. One of the topics this year is selective removal of bentgrass in roughs. Bentgrass can be a weed in certain situations, and here at Briar, we have a ton of it in our rough, one example is shown in the photo. It becomes more of a problem, for me anyhow, in our green banks. If you participated in the Big Par 3, you supported turfgrass research, and "thank you!" We hope today will enlighten many turf managers! Sincerely, Erwin McKone, President Illinois Turfgrass Foundation
