September 26, 2014 in Alumni, Articles

Penn State would like to thank SGM Industries, LLC for a generous donation.

SGM Industries, LLC has recently donated one of their TB 220 grooming brushes to the Valentine Turfgrass Research Facility, located on the Penn State Campus.  Partners in the business, Deno Minas and Jeff Scott, a 1974 graduate of the Turf Program, along with Matt Shaffer, Merion GC Director of Grounds and also a graduate in 1974, were on hand to set up and demo the machine for the managers of the facility. Mr. Shaffer used the grooming brush at Merion in preparation for the 2013 US Open.

The grooming brush will be put to good use at Valentine.
