    Those look great, but the tines seem pretty thick. Have you tried them on the greens? It would be interesting to see a photo of the repaired area.

    Might try a single prong one. Better for the Bermuda type greens.

    Those look nice, and the tines look thin enough to effectively repair a ball mark.



    My only worry would be longevity and durability. Seems like they would absorb moisture over time - any finish would be worn or damaged by repeated insertion into the ground. Seems like they might snap in particularly hard ground as well.



    These have to be among the reasons why you just don't see wood green repair tools too often.

    How many greens do you hit per round where you actually leave a mark.

    With your handicap you might average 8.5 GIR,thinking half of those probably bounce on to the green so that leaves maybe 4.times a round to fix a pitch mark if you find it.

    Thinking you should get at least 2 years out of a wooden tool.

    Not sure what brought this on, but it made me chuckle.



    FWIW, I like the tools. Like the compact size.

    Don't know. They were everywhere after a lot of the courses converted to new Bermuda. You just poked them around the pitch mark and they were restored without tearing the grass.
