I will be speaking at three full-day seminars about turfgrass science for the greenkeeper in the next few months. First, on 18 January, I will explain why turfgrass science is important for the greenkeeper and how turf science can be applied to turfgrass management. On 15 March I will discuss the science of turfgrass soils and how those soils can be managed to create the desired conditions. And I will wrap up this topic on April 15, immediately after the Masters Tournament, with a seminar about how turfgrass science can be applied to the management of playing surfaces. Each seminar will be held at Shinjuku.
