Trevor Immelman Wins Major
April 11, 2008, Jupiter, FL—Synthetic Turf International (“STI”), a global synthetic turf supplier and installer of premium synthetic putting greens and related synthetic surfaces, announced it recently installed a synthetic practice putting green at the Lake Nona, Florida, residence of the 2008 Masters Champion and PGA Tour member Trevor Immelman.
Constructed of STI’s exclusive nylon NP50® putting surface, the 1,100 square foot putting course was designed according to Immelman’s specifications. Before beginning construction, STI’s design team met with Immelman to gain a full understanding of his practice drills and routine. A practice green was then designed to fit Immelman’s exacting requirements. The project also included the installation of a chipping and pitching mat in addition to a SoftLawn® apron which surrounds the green. These elements allow Immelman to practice his short game in addition to honing his putting skills. “From our initial meeting STI developed a good understanding of my needs and requirements with regard to my project,” commented Immelman. “The finished design left me ample opportunity to not only work on my putting through practice and drills, but also my greenside chipping and pitching.”
STI’s tour-quality synthetic putting green enables consistent putts with a true roll from every position on the green. The synthetic putting surface is virtually maintenance-free and provides the look, feel and playability of a natural grass green. “Over the years I have putted on many synthetic surfaces and NP50 stands out among them,” Immelman stated. “The consistency of the NP50 rivals even the best of the greens we play on tour and the appearance certainly enhances our property.”
Trevor Immelman was born in Cape Town, South Africa. He won the U.S. Amateur Public Links in 1998 and began his professional career in 1999. Immelman has 10 professional career wins. He joined the PGA Tour in 2006, gaining his first PGA Tour title, the 2006 Cialis Western Open—a result that moved him into the top 15 in the Official World Golf Rankings. He was also named 2006 Rookie of the Year. The 2008 Masters is Immelman’s second PGA Tour victory.
The Masters Tournament is one of four major championships in men's professional golf and is held every April at the Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia.
