USGA Summary Points:Golf sole and cleat designs from the 20th century (including 8 and 6 mm metal spikes) consistently resulted among the most visible foot traffic at every site compared to the most aggressive of todays cleat/sole designs. In terms of visible foot traffic, when statistical difference occurred, topdressing on creeping bentgrass and annual bluegrass resulted in less visible wear. The higher rates of nitrogen on creeping bentgrass plots at MSU and UARK resulted in the most visible wear and ball mark depression measured with the Tru Firm. In general, cleated designs caused more visible traffic than cleatless outsoles. Ordinarily, as the number of studs on cleatless outsoles, and the number of cleats (and even prongs) on cleated outsoles increased, visible foot traffic decreased. Irrigation trials indicated that the greater the amount of moisture in the soil the greater the visible indentations from studs and cleats. Additionally, rolled plots resulted in firmer surfaces, but greater volumetric water content and, occasionally, more visible wear.
