FARMINGDALE, NY — I’m not a golf superintendent but I once worked for a minor league baseball team so I’ve seen first-hand how a rain-soaked field can magically be returned to playable conditions.

But I still raised an eyebrow when Jim Hyler, chairman of the USGA championship committee, said that the greens at the Black are running 13-13 1/2 on the stimpmeter today just as they were yesterday. He said the greens weren’t cut but were rolled as many as four times. Course superintendent Craig Currier and his crew deserve a gold star, a few “atta boys,” and then better get back to work.
