Putting Greens - US is Back to More Resilient Surfaces

Shock pads are the ideal way to add safety and resilience to the artificial grass surface. In sports industry, shock pads are often referred as an "insurance policy." According to FIFA-endorsed regulations, the shock-attenuation testing (or G-Max) is recommended for every sports field. You can get a good G-max without a shock pad, but if you like to have safer, more resilient surface, you might consider installing shock pads beneath the turf.


Shock pads make sense. Do you want to improve safety? Just lay down the pad before synthetic turf installation. From Astroturf with its nylon carpet, most artificial grass manufacturers turned their attention to infill solutions.


Rubber infill lowers G-Max to acceptable levels. When the surface compression is high, the surface feels much softer. It works great for children, but in competitive sports and golf, you need the ball rolling with a certain speed. For example, the acceptable green speed with infill for our putting greens can be as high as 14-15 on the Stimp-meter BRD. On the softer sports fields athletes get more tired than usual. Ideally, the surface must feel normal yet ensure safety.


But there is a definite mishap with the infill. It migrates on the turf surface, and the level thins especially in areas with heavy traffic. It is not just about uneven surface. Migration of infill hardens the surface reduces infill compaction and causes the degradation in performance over time. Again, it does not apply to residential or commercial projects where the traffic is low to medium. But in sports industry shock pads are crucial.


Shock pads reduce the amount of infill (and subsequent infill "splash") by lowering the height of the fiber pile and increasing the density of the pile itself. The concept of having shock pads inside infill itself had changed due to low shock-attenuation levels and extensive maintenance. Today, most business owners regard shock pads like just like an extra insurance.


Shock pads differ in density and thickness. If you are installing putting greens, it is a good idea to install 8 mm shock pad. Important thing to understand about the quality of shock pads is its tear and wear resistance, low water absorption and high shock absorption.


In this sense, chemically Closed-Cell Polyethylene Foam is the perfect material for padding. Low moisture permeability and high buoyancy combined with a smooth, delicate feel and superior physical and chemical properties, the foam is the ideally shock‐absorber.

PGA Golf and other Sport

Stanley Bishop, a president of The PGA of America and an
aggressive and profound leader, announced that the PGA's moving to a $10
million purse, the pool of prize money available to golfers in a professional
tournament. As AllGreen Grass, Inc., a leader in artificial grass
manufacturing since 2009, continues following the PGA Golf of America - an
organization of golf professionals.
According to the SB Nation, the purse has an a $2 million
increase from last year, which set the bar for all the other majors golf
tournaments, such as Masters, U.S. Open and British Open, to bump their purses
from last year's $8 million total. This announcement definitely that upset the
synergy of having all four majors golf leads pay out the same amount,
consequently the rest of major golf organizations increased their purses this
year to at least $9 million, but none matched the $10 million commitment by the
PGA last year. In addition to the big boost to the winner's earnings, the $10
million purse also means that the second-place finisher takes home seven
figures of the price money. The PGA golf leaderboard shows a mashed lower
pay-off for the inferior places, but should someone separate himself into solo
second, he'll earn a $1.08 million check. That's $700k less than the winner, still
an enormous profit for not even winning a tournament.

The source of the most of the pool of the money, the purse,
comes from different TV networks that broadcast PGA Golf tournaments. According
to an article in Forbes, major TV network provides 60 percent of each
tournament's purse. The rest of 40 percent of the prize money is provided by
the tournament's sponsors, who range from golf clubs and equipment, golf
courses to organizations such as AllGreen Grass, who produces highest quality
synthetic grass. The sponsors typically take in revenue from sources such as product
advertising, ticket sales, quest parking and franchises, from which they hope
to pay their share of the purse, with something left over as profit. Then the
shares are divided amon the winners. Each successive place down the line
receives a smaller piece of the pie. Typically, each golfer who makes the final
tournament's cut earns some of the prize money. On the Champions Tour the
champion receives 15 percent of the purse. In European Tour the winning player
will reserve 16.67 percent of the purse. As of 2012, no regular tournament on
the PGA Tour offers a purse of less than $1 million. The lowest-paying event on
the official PGA Tour calendar is the ADT Skills Challenge, with a total purse
of $800,000. Each of the four major tournaments, such as U.S. Open, Masters,
British Open and PGA Championship -- offer purses of $8 million, with $1.44
million going to the winner.
In AllGreen Grass, Inc. we report that
according to financial data the revenue that two other field sports, American
Football and Baseball, are less overall accumulate than PGA Golf tournaments do.
For instance, NFL Super Bowl is the most popular world of sponsorship that
pools the prize money for the winning team. The Super Bowl is TV advertising's
biggest and most expensive stage, hitting only around $4 million per 30-second
spots this year. Consequently, Major League Baseball hopping to reach $9
billion in 2014 for their main sponsorship revenue. Either way, Global
Syn-Turf, Inc. hopes to support our country's favorite sports teams in the
future. ...

PGA Leaderboard names Bernhard Langer his Champion

The PGA of America is the home to some of the most important
events in golf, such as the PGA Golf Championship, the Senior PGA Golf
Championship, The PGA Grand Slam of Golf and The Ryder Cup. PGA Golf tournament
includes many extraordinary golf players, but only one stood out for Global
Syn-Turf (), a leader in artificial synthetic grass industry. In 1985 PGA
Golf leaderboard named Bernhard Langer the Master of Golf Champions.

Bernhard Langer, a professional golfer from Germany, won his
first of two major PGA Golf Championships that held in 11-14 April 85' at age
of 27. Langer scored with two strokes ahead of runners-up Steve Ballesteros,
Raymond Floyd, and Curtis Strange. That year PGA golf leaderboard showed a 69
(-3) on Saturday put Floyd in the lead after 54 holes at 212 (-4); Strange was
a stroke back, followed by Langer and Ballesteros at 214 (-2). Despite an opening round 80, Strange led by
three strokes with six holes to play in the final round, but bogeyed the 13th,
15th, and 18th holes and finished two strokes back. According to the Register-Guard associated
press, "It was 'a dream come true," for Langer, who surged from four strokes
back with nine holes to play. He claimed his first American title and became
only the third foreign player to do the green jacket that goes to the Masters
champions." The 1985 PGA golf leaderboard recorded that Langer won by two shots
with a 282 total, 6-under-par on the Augusta National Golf Club course. "I was
looking at the leader boards and I thought it was going to be another case
where I played well and came in second again," Langer said to the associated
press. In the final round, the leaderboard recorded Langer rolling in four
birdie putts in the 13 to 18-foot range, finishing the four-stroke deficit and
wining by two. He won by using two different putting techniques, conventional
from distances of 20 feet or more and a cross-handled grip from inside 20 feet.

On July 27, 2014 the Senior Open Championship at Royal
Porthcawl Golf Club reworded a victory cup for a closing round of 67 (-4) that
Langer win by a staggering 13 shots from Colin Montgomerie. As the Golf
Leaderboard reported that Langer shot a final-round 67 for a four-round total
of 266 (-18). He broke the Champions Tour record for margin of victory that had
been held for 17 years by Hale Irwin. Langer's final round victory march,
taking the lead of Wales' first Senior Major Championship to 43 put scoring
503, which is the second highest in the history of the championship. With
Langer's incredibly winning total made even more remarkable given that only
four other players broke par for the Senior Open Championship. In his interview
after the match, Langer stated that "This [was ] unusual," which earned him a place
in next year's Open Championship at St. Andrews. He continued, "I've won a
tournament by 17, the World Championship under 25 years, but this just doesn't
happen, not with the competition you're facing.... So it's been an amazing week
for me." With the excitement and satisfaction he continued to his next match
competition in Blaine that is holed by 3M Championship. At AllGreen Grass, the world's leading
synthetic grass manufacturers will continue watching the PGA Golf Leaderboard
for Langer's success in PGA Golf tournaments.Congratulations Bernhard

Germany wins the 2014 world cup!

Germany beat Argentina 1-0 in the world cup finals! Many viewers thought that Messi would ensure a win for Argentina. The game was exciting to watch. The artificial grass field was a vibrant green color and made the game very amusing to watch. In fact, the fake grass looked so real; many probably couldn't tell if it was real or not!


Messi missed a free shot over the bar, and Germany responded with a goal. The game was exciting and long, but in the 113th minute, Germany scored the game-winning goal. The coach of the Argentina team was not deeply saddened by the loss, but instead accepted that Germany had won fair. Although Messi was a four-time world player, he could not carry his team to victory. Many were disappointed and expected Messi to lead his team to victory.


What many people do not realize is that Messi is one man, but Germany is a team. In the end, both teams shot ten goals each. Germany accurately shot seven out of their ten goals on cage, while Argentina only shot two targets on cage. Germany possessed the ball for 60% of the match, while Argentina possessed it for 40%. Although Argentina made six close saves, in the end, it just wasn't enough to shut down Germany.


AllGreen Grass congratulates Germany and Bernhard Langer, two time master's golf champion, who is currently endorsing AllGreen Grass products. ...
