How to repair a pitch mark

  1. Correct Method
    • Discard the loose piece of turf taken out by the ball
    • Insert the pitch mark repairer tool just outside of the back of the pitch mark
    • Lever the turf towards the centre of the pitch mark
    • Repeat this motion from all sides of the pitch mark
    • Gently tap the repaired area with your putter. This action stretches undamaged turf over the pitch mark, providing instant recovery

  2. Incorrect Method
    • DO NOT replace the loose piece of turf taken out by the ball. It will die and delay the healing process.
    • DO NOT pry up the centre of the depression with the pitch mark repairer as it exposes the soil and will delay the healing process
    • DO NOT insert the pitch mark repairer and twist it. This only breaks more turf loose.
