2015 USGA Green Section Award Winner

     Dr. Patrica J. Vittum, Amherst, Mass., has been announced as this year’s 2015 USGA Green Section Award winner. The award, designed to recognize distinguished service to the game of golf through work on turfgrass, is based on her work with turfgrass pests, and her ability to effectively communicate what she finds to those in the field.

     “Her contributions to the study of turfgrass insects have helped to establish industry standards and best management practices,” said Dr. Kimberly Erusha, managing director of the USGA Green Section, “we are proud to recognize her accomplishments and celebrate her legacy.” With a Curriculum Vitae that would take up most of this tiny post, check out the link below to learn more about Dr. Vittum and her work.
