Course Superintendent for Portmarnock Resort & Jameson Golf Links
In recent years, Fintan has devised and designed an R&A approved device to assess the reliability of putting surfaces and to measure green speed (www.greenstester.com). The Greenstester device is already gaining worldwide recognition following successful trials and commendations from industry leaders such as A. J. Turgeon, Ph.D. Professor Emeritus of Turfgrass Management and Micah Woods Ph.D. Chief Scientist at the Asian Turf Centre. The device is further supported by the R&A’s, recently established, protocol for conducting the ‘Holing Out Test’.
