Seed Research of Oregon continues to fulfill its founding mission of bringing improved grasses to end users through superior breeding, seed production, and distribution networks. The fruits of this labor of love could be seen at the Waste Management Phoenix Open held at TPC in Scottsdale, AZ on January 29 - February 3, 2018.
In more than 20 years, Seed Research of Oregon has been the proud supplier of turfgrass seed for overseeding of tees, fairways, greens and roughs for this prestigious tournament.
We work closely with the TPC Scottsdale staff on trials and test plots to give them the best results possible for this high profile tournament. The Stadium Course was in great condition for the tournament.
