Reviewing the 3Rs ~ Proper Ballmark Repair

    
Use a pronged ball mark
repair tool, knife, key or tee.


Insert it at the edges of the mark -
not the middle of the depression.


Bring the edges together with a
gentle twisting motion, but don't
lift the center. Try not to tear the grass.

 
Smooth the surface with a club
or your foot. You're done when it's
a surface you would want to putt over.
