Hard to beat those switch blade type tools.  Been interested to try something like the spider tool.

Yes. More important to know how to fix a pitch mark than what you use to fix a pitch mark. I use a single prong "pitch pro" I think it's called that Poppy Hills give away on the first tee.

I found one of these towards the end of the year and is $, easy to grip with thumb indentation part, perfect length single prong, beats the two prongs IMO.....know where I can buy one....can't seem to find the damn thing and would like to get another.

I use an AHEAD flip out with OCC logo. Works great. When I have some extra scratch, I'm getting a tool by @claretdreamer. Check his tools out on Instagram. Absolutely beautiful

I think they started selling these at my club but it's been raining cats and dogs so I haven't been there in a few weeks. If we've got them, I'll get you one.

The Spider, insta-golf repair tool. Accept no substitutes.

https://www.amazon.c...XwcL&ref=plSrch

I've used mine for 2 seasons and counting. In most cases it's like there was never a ball mark after repairing.
I own this. I hate the damn tool. I think it is awful. And it is too big to be comfortable in my pocket.


Like seemingly everything else in golf, repair tools are a matter of personal preference, but I'm with Augster.  I love my Spider tool.  My only complaint is the magnetic ball mark.  I've lost a couple, and the ridge on the cap prevents normal sized ball markers from fitting(the Spider ball marker is smaller).  They're cheap to buy replacements so it's really just an annoyance.

I use a Scotty Cameron Stainless Steel pivot tool. It has a nice heft to it and will take a long time for get sharp compared to an aluminum one I used to play.

I used to use the SC pivot tool but it's really light and find I prefer something with a little more heft to it. Not gonna fork over $400 for a stainless steel SC pivot tool

So I'm with a few guys here, switched to a Tyson Lamb divot tool and much prefer the weight and feel. Plus with it being made of copper, it should age well.

Why do you guys prefer a heavy divot tool? Wouldn't it be nicer not to carry such a heavy thing in your pocket the whole round?

Everything has its drawbacks, as the man said when his mother-in-law died, and they came down upon him for the funeral expenses.

I too carry a stainless tool with some heft to it
I just like the heft of it, and feel like the aluminum ones etc are just too light
Not really a great explanation, but just a personal preference

I rate ball mark tools in 3 categories:

Look, weight, and overall ability to dig into turf + repair nicely.

My Tyson Lamb tool is best I've ever used, and certainly takes the Blue Ribbon in all 3 categories.

I've already used my pitchfix classic this year and it works perfectly. It gives you great leverage two fix the ball marks. The switchblade characteristic allows you to put it into your pocket without poking your leg or a hole in the pocket.

I've got some beauties, including a switchblade, but the one I use most is the simple brass-colored one.

The genuine Swiss Army golf knife with ball marker and divot tool is a little over-the-top.
