This new edition also boasts hundreds of new color photographs, color drawings, and useful tables that illustrate Dr. Beard's research-proven techniques. Now you can put Dr. Beard's three-decades of experience, and the collective field experience of the USGA Green Section, on your desk in the most complete, most detailed, and most useful manual-of-practice ever published.
