What is a stimpmeter used for?

This is a very intriguing video that explains what these readings mean and how a little knowledge is also quite dangerous.  Have a look and remember that not all greens are built the same.  At Morro Bay if our stimps are above 10 we lose 90% of our pin locations and 5 and 6 putts become the norm, while at Dairy and Chalk 11-12 is possible, but not likely to enhance the majority of our customers' level of satisfaction.  In my experience, club members have a tendency to exaggerate the truth to "out-do" their friends.  In the turf industry we have a saying, "speed kills!"
