Severe Rainstorm Causes Need for Capillary Concrete at PGA Tour Event
As grand stands were being assembled in preparation for the John Deere Classic, TPC Deere Run Superintendent Alex Stuedemann and his staff had to quickly repair a bunker on #18 that had become damaged and irreparable after a recent severe rainstorm. Capillary Concrete was the fix the golf course needed. The quick one-step installation process allowed Alex and his staff to install Capillary Concrete on a Tuesday and place the sand in the bunker the next day. The bunker was back in play and Alex could then focus on preparing the turf for the event.

Boasting one of the most impressive hair and beard-styles you will see in our industry(!), Andreas and his team really take wonderful care of this 100+ year old gem near the city. Well worth a visit if you ever come to Sweden!
Part owner of Capillary Concrete and 10-time major winner, Annika Sorenstam, has increased her investment in the company and purchased a 50% stake. Significantly increasing her financial commitment, Annika will now work alongside Martin Sternberg to help improve the playability of bunkers, reduce water consumption, and ultimately save golf courses money.
“Capillary Concrete saves courses time and money when it comes to maintenance of bunkers and surrounding turf.” says Annika, who has designed courses all over the world. “Even more impressively, it improves course conditioning in an environmentally friendly manner, something that’s especially important to the game’s continued growth.”
Annika has been an investor in Capillary Concrete since January of 2015 and has officialy aquired her additional shares from Almi, a Swedish venture capital firm.
