Greens Brushing with Woolly Mammoth Hair

This week at Cinnabar we brushed the greens, but we didn't really use the hair of a woolly mammoth.  Those in the industry may get the humor because there was a rumor that Merion Golf Club used brushes made with yak-hair to help prepare their surfaces for the 2013 U.S. Open.

We actually just used regular broom heads that you would find at any old hardware store attached to the  T.I.P. grooming unit.  The purpose of this was to help remove some of the grain by standing up the grass that was laying over and cut it off.  We then followed that up with a double cutting and of course, sand.
