Golfer Quotes

JORDAN SPIETH: Personally, I like this grass type better [Bermuda]. I grew up on this, Bermuda, not the overseed, having to judge firmer, faster greens, and then the biggest change will be within the rough. Obviously around the greens, overseed becomes an easier grass to chip off of than this grainy Bermuda. But out of the rough, judging fliers and shots around the green, explosion shots, having that kind of feel, that goes away a little bit when overseed comes in. -2018 PLAYERS

KEVIN KISNER: You know, I haven’t liked the greens in the past couple of years. But I’ve learned more this year that you really have to pay attention to the grain. I grew up on grain, so I don’t pay attention to it on most Bermudagrass. But here with the overseed, I think the grain almost plays a bigger influence than on normal Bermuda. It really affects the speed and into the grain, downgrain, and that also affects break. -2018 Match Play, Austin CC

AUSTIN COOK: I love this overseeded rye, they’re just perfect. They’re great. Couldn’t expect any or want any better greens. -2018 CareerBuilder

JASON DAY: I think it’s very, very difficult golf course. Once again, we do have a little bit of weather here every now and then, but for the most part it’s a very difficult golf course at this time, especially with the Bermudagrass and with the current position of them actually thinking about changing the date, that will change the way the grass plays and everything else, so that may change the way that I view the golf course as well, because I tend to like kind of overseeded ryegrass and more so than the Bermuda. -2017 PLAYERs

JIM FURYK: Right now, we’re in kind of an over-seeded period here, so we are almost dealing with grass you would see up north. We are dealing with the rye and overseed, which I like playing on, as long as they are dry conditions, you can get it nice and firm and fast, which is fun to play on. -2013 Valspar
