Solid time aerification

Today we started spot aerifying low areas and weak areas on the greens.  This time of year the low spots do not dry out and can easily get water logged which decreases the amount of available oxygen for the roots.  By aerifying with solid tines the profile gets opened up allowing air to enter supplying the roots with much needed oxygen.  After the holes get punched and the green gets rolled it is hard to tell we were even there but the benefit exists.
