Pinehurst No. 2 goes native
Kevin Stallings, a Ph.D. student in crop science, is conducting research that could be used in the restoration of a storied golf course that will host the 2014 U.S. Open. Stallings is characterizing native vegetation, desirable adapted species and invasive weeds at Pinehurst No. 2, all in an effort to create a model for how course superintendents can approach sustainability.
