Performance on Fast Greens

When talking green speeds, we reference the stimpmeter. It is a device that drops a golf ball onto a few different segments of a green surface and the stimpmeter is how many feet the ball rolls out.

Using the stimpmeter rating we can determine how fast a green is running. Most public courses will sit between 8-to-10 feet but 10 feet is considered quite slow by PGA TOUR standards. The fastest greens on TOUR, annually, are Augusta National and Muirfield Village Golf Club, and they run 13 feet or higher each year.

The Fantasy Golfanac considers Fast Greens to be all courses with a stimp of 12 feet or higher.

* Stats are an overall performance at a course when greens are fast, not exclusive to just putting.
** Stats are adjusted for strength of competition.
*** 25 Round minimum to qualify.
