Re: Help me find my old divot tool
Using a tee is not good enough, a tool with thin prongs is the best. A tee is too thick and you won't be able to repair the green properly.
I've tried to find a good tool with thin and sharp prongs, but didn't find anything. What I use today is a modified Taylormade tool. It's pretty much the same, but I've grinded down the prongs, making them slender and thin. I repair a pitch mark like illustrated on the website below and smooth it out with the putter, works great.http://lakeviewcc.com/turfcare/etiqu...ball_marks.php
As to why it's called divot tool, I'm not sure. A divot is a piece of turf, the one we should take when hitting balls. A ball coming into the green does actually create a tiny divot, but you don't repair that, you repair the pitch mark.
Pitch mark tool would be a better name imo.
