Golf Equipment Update: File This Under Why?
Put away your tuning forks, your pen knives, your spatulas, and whatever else you use to fix ball marks on greens. Bulle Rock, sanctum of all that is holy and right with golf, informs us that traditional golf ball mark repair tools are damaging greens!
Fortunately for us (you and I, that is), we can watch a video on how to properly repair a green. If you liked the short version of the video, watch the dance hall remix extended version!! The brains behind this operation is one Danny Edwards, who may or may not be the professional golf (it don’t matter to me, mon.)
If you watch the video, it doesn’t take long to see that you can perform the same technique with a traditional tool, or an awl, if you wish. Let’s be reasonable…no one is going to perform the hack job that they use to demonstrate “the wrong way,” and very few of us will plunge the tool into the green the eight or so times it takes to do it “properly.” I have yet to meet the golfer who sighs longingly, “if only I had the correct tool for this job…then I’d repair all the ball marks on this and every green upon which I tread.” This is one item whose time, in my opinion, has neither come nor gone.
