What is the white foam?

If you have played golf early in the morning you might see white foam on the greens, tees or fairways.  The foam is used when spraying to help the operator know where he has been.  Depending on the thickness of the foam and weather conditions, the foam can last from a few minutes to over an hour.  The foam is harmless.
If you look closely on the right side of the picture, you can see the white foam that is left behind by the sprayer so that the operator can see where he has been.
