Used to happen about when I r was young, rarely occurs now. For my yard, if I water, it is either early am or late pm where the water can get to the roots.
When it did happen, I didn't care. Let the stream pass, step in, hit, move away. And it felt good on a hot day.
As far as syringing the greens, hearing that hiss, hiss, hiss as they come up out off the ground certainly will speed up a slow putter .. lol
