Proper Ball Mark Repair

Repairing a ball mark promptly can make all the difference in how long it takes to recover. Doing it properly is just as important. Take the time to repair your own mark and one other. Do your part to keep your course in the best condition possible.

Use a pronged ball mark repair tool, knife, key or tee

Insert it at the edges of the mark --not the middle of the depression.

Bring the edges together with a gentle twisting motion, but don't lift the center. Try not to tear the grass.

Smooth the surface with a club or your foot. You're done when it's a surface you would want to putt over.
