Golf Digest named David Doguet, turfgrass breeder and president of Bladerunner Farms in Poteet, Texas, part of its List of Innovators & Influencers of 2016.

Doguet is well-known in the turfgrass industry for his work in developing advanced varieties of zoysiagrass. Among Doguet’s most notable zoysias are: Zeon Zoysia, which was planted on the Olympic golf course in Rio for this summer’s Olympic Games; and L1F, which the Tiger Woods Design team used widely at Tiger’s first U.S. course, Bluejack National.

The Golf Digest article on Futurists explains Doguet’s contribution to the game of golf said, “Doguet’s various crossbred strains—finer-bladed, more disease- and insect-resistant, less thirsty … (have) made zoysia golf’s new super grass. ”

Editors of Golf Digest introduce the Innovators & Influencers section this way: “Meet the Innovators and Influencers changing the game, whether you like it or not … What golf might look like 100 years from now is uncertain, but we do know it’s the people with the bravery to challenge traditions who will shape it … whose work could change the game you love beyond recognition. For the better, we think.”

The list was published in the May issue of Golf Digest.
