what is a stimp meter

Stimp Meter

An instrument used to measure the speed of a green by applying a known force to the ball and measuring the distance travelled. Superintendents measure green speed with a stimp meter. Its readings give a snapshot of the green speed at that time of day. Stimp meter readings in the five to six range mean slow greens, seven to eight mean medium, nine to ten fast, and above eleven extremely fast.
