Are Zoysia Fairways "Sticky"?

I've heard various objections made against the use of manilagrass (Zoysia matrella) on golf courses, one of those objections being that the grass is "sticky", that it grabs the ball or the club. In this video, we can see how the ball is grabbed, or not, by manilagrass fairways.

Keep in mind that what we see in the video is on fairways with typical maintenance, mown at 10 mm. There is no special effort made to have especially firm fairways and approaches. And this was during the rainy season. In the dry season (pictured below), those fairways are even faster and bouncier. Manilagrass-fairway-dryseason
