It is that time of the year once again. Soil temps are up, and the Tif-Eagle bermudagrass is alive and growing aggressively. The active growing is taking place on top while the thatch is growing under the surface. Tif-Eagle produces a ton of thatch that has to be removed, otherwise your green speeds will pay the price. To remove thatch, I use a proven method in a Tif-Eagle putting green. I started using this trick back in Naples, Florida, 10 years ago when I grew in the course at Calusa Pines Golf Club. Using this method and pulling cores three to four times a year will produce outstanding results. Remember that you have to feed your greens before, during and after to rip them up. Check out my video below showing my method of circle verticutting on a Tif-Eagle green.
