Express Dual and Anglemaster made an unforgettable debut down under at the 2006 Australian Open at The Royal Sydney Golf Club.

Course Superintendent, John Odell  had this to say about the dramatic change in the condition of the course surface for the Tournament, “Without doubt, all of our mowers have produced a higher quality surface since we introduced the Bernhard grinding system. We are thankful and honoured to have had Chris Stig and Bernhard involved with our team.”

“Using Express Dual 3000 and Anglemaster 3000 for the first time, we saw an immediate impact in the sharpness of our cutting units, as well as an increase in the quality of cut.”

Bernhard's Paul Wilcox, along with Australian distributor for Sydney, Chris Stig of PJC Sportsturf, worked along side Head Mechanic,  Ian Widocks and his maintenance team to keep the Royal Sydney mowing fleet in tip top shape for the tournament.

Chris said, “The reports we have heard about the event are out of this world. Personally, I have never seen greens like this in all of my travels. The fairways were like carpet – it was in beautiful shape.”

In February 2007 The Royal Sydney Golf Club hosted another prestigious event – The Women’s Australian Open. Again, the Express Dual and Anglemaster contributed to the pristine playing surfaces.
