Getting Winged Foot Club U.S. Open Ready

With The U.S. Open kicking off today, see how Stephen Rabideau and his team at Winged Foot Club got the course in tournament-ready shape in the midst of COVID-19.

The decision was made in April to postpone the U.S. Open - which was originally scheduled for June 18 - 21 to September 17 - 20. They were met with a variety of challenges along the way, including dealing with the lack of daylight and the potential of frost. They also faced the challenge of keeping the rough in U.S. Open condition throughout the season, and they found that the John Deere ProGatorâ„¢ GPS PrecisionSprayer has been a game-changer for their team.

The entire team has battled adversity and uncertainty since COVID-19 hit, but ultimately they have come together to create and showcase the best golf course that they can that will be broadcast to 120 million viewers world-wide this weekend.
