Can a normal push reel mower, be used on a backyard putting green?

Most of the articles that I have read you need to have a special push reel mower for your putting green, So I was wondering if a cut height of 1/2 in. with a normal push reel mower would be able to cut down to a 3/16 or 1/4 if I was just to mow more frequently?
