I was a little surprised myself, but it appears as though the prongs are separate pieces to the base they attach into. Instead of just casting it all as a single piece they cast it as 4 separate pieces (3 prongs and 1 center hub). The part that failed was the bond holding one of the prongs to the center hub.

Yeah it seems that a single piece design would be substantially more stable. I may get that automatic tool Erik posted but not sure I’d like carrying it around. I know it’s more for greens keepers but when I’m playing alone and it’s open...I hate just leaving all those ball marks on the green. It’s a shame how many people at my course don’t repair their marks.

Just as an update to my earlier review, my Fusion 2.5 finally broke today after nearly 2.5 years of hard use. One of the side prongs fell out. That said, it lasted quite some time and I did like it enough that I'll probably be buying another one soon enough. It really does work better for getting your mark ironed out flat.

I'm sure you get more use out of it than most, GIR and all that. Actually that's a good testament that you'd buy it again.

The Hybrib 2.0 logged another season in 2020.  I did a poor job of cleaning the tool and the sandy greens resulted in it jamming open.  A good cleaning and a bit of lubrication got it back to proper functioning.

Now a story.  I am not a big souvenir collector but on my trip to Scotland in 2013, I got two ball markers from the Old Course, a poker chip and a metal marker.  I used the poker chip a lot for when I was far from the hole.  Eventually the Old Course markings wore off and then one day I lost it.  No problem, the metal one went into action.  Then one day the metal Old Course marker vanished.  I was a bit sad but life and golf goes on.  Then, one day months later, I noticed the ball marker on the PitchFix looked different.  Hmmm ... it was the Old Course marker.  The magnet on the handle is strong.

    • Again I will say it has very likely been hot melted. Does it feel "thin" when you hit it or is it more of a thud? If it's a thud, that tells me hotmelt. 
    • Went on a Christopher Reeve kick last week. He's an underrated actor, so much charisma.  Somewhere in Time - IDK if it's a birdie or an eagle, but it's magnificent. my wife said she didn't like the ending, but she's still been talking about it days later so it must be great.  Deathtrap - easy birdie. Reeve more than holds his own against Michael Caine. Marvelous.
    • They should give Fleury a primary assist on the tying goal 😉
    • Peacock is pretty limited in its broadcast. I posted the schedule in the first few pages of this thread. Like today there’s nothing on Peacock according to the schedule. 
    • I will be relieved to finally have our tee times today.  We will see what they will have available but per the last post from @iacas, we spoke a bit yesterday on what we would ideally like the three days to look like.  We are finally getting some rain the past couple days, so hopefully that will help things here a bit.  I have to make the tee times this morning and run to an event, but I will update you all as soon as I can.
