Golf Tips : How to Repair a Golf Ball Divot on the Putting Green


Golf divots are something you find in your
everyday round at a golf course. They’re found on the green, and they’re made by the ball
striking the green. My name is Jared Garbett, and today, I’m going to teach you how to properly
repair your golf divot. You’re going to begin by taking your divot tool, which you can get
at just about any golf course, or golf equipment store. You’re going to take it, and insert
it around the edges of the divot, and gently pull toward the center of the divot. Never
pull upwards, in fear of tearing the roots, but you’re going to work your way around the
divot, and gently pull toward the center. After closing the divot up, you’re going to
gently take your putter, and tap down on the surface of the green, to flatten out the surface.
That is how you properly repair your divot, and you should always do so, to keep the golf
course, nice for everyone else.

  1. It's strange that I happen to have a divot repair tool. I guess you'd better let Callaway, PING, Nike, Cobra, etc. know about their incorrect word usage. Until then though, shush, you're making yourself look like a fool.

  2. Don't twist it like this guy just insert and push both tines together toward center.  The USGA has the best instructional with explanation on youtube.
