Definition: The term "divot tool" refers to the two-pronged metal or hard plastic tool used to repair ballmarks on the surface of the putting green. Note that we said a "divot tool" is used to repair ballmarks, not divots. Divots occur in the fairway (or teeing ground) and a "divot tool" has nothing to do with them. Hence, "divot tool" is actually the wrong name for the tool, which is properly called a "ballmark tool" or ballmark repair tool." Sometimes also referred as a pitch repair tool.

Why is the divot / pitch so important. As the statistics below highlight the green which generally is not very big in size compared to the fairways we play on, has not only the constant impact of the feet of players but also thousands of golf balls. The non repair of the ball mark is unprofessional and totally against the etiquette of golf.

Many golfers have been playing the game for years and have never really known the correct way to use a divot repair tool to fix their ball marks. Refer to the images below for further assistance and the attached video.

Most Pro shops have a hand out on how to repair a ball mark. I not ask your pro shop next time you are in it. So many golfers just don't think it is their job to fix this mark and more importantly there is a right and wrong way to fix such a mark on the green.

Ball marks also called pitch marks - are the bane of smooth-putting and healthy greens on the golf course. They're the little depressions, or craters, sometimes made when a golf ball descends from the sky and impacts the putting surface.

Repairing those little depressions is very important. Equally important is doing it the right way. Because while many golfers fail to repair ball marks - and shame on you if you are one of them - there are also many well-meaning golfers who do "repair" the pitch marks, only to do so incorrectly.

If a divot is not repaired correctly everyone suffers from the bad conditions on the green afterwards. But if done correctly every golfer can help ensure that greens stay in better shape, and that's just good for golf.

A lot of people think that you need to push up the ground that is at the bottom of the divot, and that is incorrect. To fix it the right way you have to close the gap and push the sides of the divot together.

To use a divot/pitch repair tool the right way:

  1. Place it in the ground just outside the ball mark itself.
  2. Push down and forward to push the ground closer together.
  3. Then move the tool to either side to close the mark.
  4. Finish it off by tapping lightly on the ball mark to level it out with your putter.

A ball mark can cause the grass in the depression to die, leaving not just a scar but also a pit in the putting surface that can knock well-struck putts offline. Repairing a ball mark restores a smooth surface and helps keep the grass healthy. But "repairing" a ball mark incorrectly can actually cause more damage than not attempting to repair it at all, according to studies done.

While waiting for your playing partners to have a put why not start fixing any other ball marks you see on the green.
