Tim Lodge is a registered expert witness and is regularly called upon to provide Expert Witness reports on sports surface and soil/landscape/drainage-related situations where litigation is, or could be, involved. These may be related to injury, inappropriate materials and installation methods, inappropriate or inadequate design or maintenance procedures and contractual disagreements. Reports are of course prepared in a manner suitable for presentation to the court and court appearances are undertaken when required.
True expertise is arrived at through knowledge, observation and experience. Tim Lodge's research work and PhD on the construction and maintenance of golf greens represents just the starting point of over 30 years of learning in the fields of natural grass and artificial turf technology. Just as the plane crash survivors needed the geeky model aircraft designer, played by Hardy Kruger, to get them out of the desert in the classic film 'The Flight of the Phoenix', the world needs its geeks and, in his own particular sphere, Tim is possibly one of the most knowledgeable and experienced geeks around!
