We’re now less than a week away from the start of the 112thUSGA United States Open Championship.  Golf fans everywhere are eager to see an expansive field of 156 pro and amateur golfers tee off midweek at the historic Olympic Club in San Francisco, California.

The 2012 Open officially kicks off on June 14th before its traditional conclusion on Father’s Day three days later. With tee times inching closer, crews at the Olympic Club are busy putting the finishing touches on their course, readying it for a global close-up.

Aquatrols is proud to say that it is playing an important part in that process. We’ve received word that Revolution, the world’s leading soil surfactant, is being applied at the Olympic Club in the lead-up to Championship action.

Trusted by turf professionals around the world, Revolution’s patented formulation allows users to get the most out of their water supply by balancing air and water in the rootzone. By maximizing the potential of the natural growing environment, Revolution allows for unparalleled and comprehensive water management. This revolutionary technology is proven to produce consistent, firm, and more uniform playing surfaces. Check out the difference in the treated vs. untreated turf below:
