It ‘s time for a friendly PSA…
If you hit your approach shot onto the green please do the right thing and repair your marks. Often when I’m playing a round of golf a conversation takes place about people not fixing their pitch marks. Is it because people don’t know how to repair them, they don’t have a repair tool (like a Pitchfix) handy or is it sheer laziness?
Even if you don’t make one yourself if you see one or two marks on a green repair a couple. This well help maintain the greens of the golf course and keep down man hours to repair the greens and avoid potential increases in green fees to offset the increased labour costs. Below is a press release introducing chip Beck as a Brand Ambassador for PitchFix. Mr. beck will be appearing at the PGA Merchandise Show on behalf of PitchFix.
