Bentgrass Specialists

Bentgrass performance is based on tournaments where the course features bentgrass greens. This grass type is more common on the West Coast and Northern states. The biggest difference between bentgrass and bermuda is the lack of grain. The minimum amount of rounds required to make the following lists is 25.

Always remember to compare these numbers to their expected Stokes Gained:Total numbers. For example, an elite player with a 1.25 SG:Total on bentgrass might make this list of top performers, but it could also be lower than their usual output meaning that player is actually worse on bentgrass greens.
