Bernhard and Company – British manufacturer of Bernhard Grinders, the world’s finest blade sharpening systems for turf cutting machines – announces its involvement with the PGA TOUR’s FedExCup tournament sites.
Course maintenance teams at Liberty National (The Barclays), TPC Boston (Deutsche Bank Championship), Conway Farms (BMW Championship) and East Lake Golf Club (TOUR Championship by Coca Cola) rely on Bernhard Grinders to help ensure mowers and other machines maintain surgically-sharp blades. The resulting scythe-like cut promotes healthy turf crucial to presenting world-class playing surfaces.
All courses benefit from Bernhard’s Express Dual reel and Anglemaster bedknife grinders throughout the year to keep equipment in ideal condition. Bernhard experts have also been onsite at Liberty National, TPC Boston and EastLake to offer the company’s Tournament Support service. While there, they share insights accumulated through years of event-preparation experience and assist with sharpening, setting and preparing cutting units to promote utmost effectiveness.
“We’re long-time partners with all four venues and honored to help them present the finest course conditions possible during the FedExCup,” says Peter Wood, Chief Operating Officer of Bernhard and Company. “We have a proud heritage of aiding with major tournament preparations thanks to our unmatched product quality.”
Bernhard’s Express Dual grinds reels without requiring disassembly of the mower. Its membrane touch control panel, speed loading system and automatic traverse guarantees rapid turnaround and improved work shop safety. The unique auto relief eliminates the need for lapping, producing a more accurate finish and reduced maintenance costs.
The company’s Anglemaster bedknife grinder emphasizes speed and accuracy. Using a simple protractor with “auto-cue” to find any desired angle, it can sharpen bedknives to within one thousandth of an inch. Independent end-feed, a single-point advance and central-grind position make it the easiest-to-use bedknife grinder on the market.
Bernhard Grinders are pivotal to maintaining pristine playing surfaces at nearly 75 of Golf Digest’s Top 100 U.S. courses and many No.1-ranked courses on Golfweek’s state-by-state “Best You Can Play” rankings. In the U.S. and Canada they are available through more than 65 certified regional distributors.
