Newly released product from Technovation International that changes the manner in which golfers repair ball marks. Our new greens repair tool introduces curved prongs to replace the standard straight prongs on the traditional divot tools. These prongs provide the ability to push or pull the turf gently back into it’s precise position without damaging the root system. The curved prongs of The Perfect Fix improves the effectiveness of repairing the ball marks resulting in less damage and higher quality greens.
The Perfect Fix® is a significant breakthrough in golf greens repair technology. Over the past three years The Perfect Fix has proven to dramatically reduce the damage done to greens when compared with straight prong traditional divot tools. The product retails for under $20.00 making it a low cost greens-friendly device for the novice and professional golfer.
The PerfectGolfers patented technology uses three curved, very thin and tapered stainless steel prongs. The surgical stainless steel prongs slip easily between the grass roots avoiding possible damage. The curved prongs allow the golfer to gently pull or push the grass back into its original position. The traditional legacy divot tools have straight and thicker prongs. They are unable to perform this push/pull operation, the marque feature of The Perfect Fix.
Prying up with the straight prongs rips the grass roots killing the grass causing more damage to the greens. Everyone has tasted the defeat of missing more than one putt caused by this damage to the greens.
1. Innovations in prong technology improve tool effectiveness
2. Clothing Safe
The Perfect Fix folds up to a clothing safe, compact size designed to be carried in a pocket without causing the wear and discomfort associated with traditional divot tools.
“Divot tools are awkward to carry and terribly hard on the clothing. For this reason I prefer not to carry one. But, as most golfers I would like to use one on the greens. I like the compact size and how The Perfect Fix® is safe on clothing. A lot of thought went into this product. I will carry this divot tool”, said Andrea Kerr (Markham, ON).
3. Branding /Cost Effective Marketing Tool
The Perfect Fix will accept any magnetic 1″ in diameter ball marker. Great for corporate branding, non-profit tournaments, special events, or if you want to hold onto that lucky ball marker you like to use.
4. Best Tool for Champions Bermuda Grass Greens
In recent studies The Perfect Fix was the only divot tool to effectively fix ball marks on Champions Bermuda Grass greens.
Shots on the green accounts for more than half the strokes in a round of golf. The Perfect Fix from Technovationis designed to help eliminate the damage left by ball marks on the greens, reduce grounds maintenance costs, and most importantly, improve the quality of the game.
The average golfer leaves about 12 ball marks during a typical round of golf. With a daily average of 160 rounds on a typical golf course, your greens will suffer 1,920 ball marks each day and 58,400 ball marks per month – more than 700,000 ball marks each year! Further, consider that the average number of divots a typical golfer creates during a round of golf is 45. This equates to 7,200 divots a day or 2,628,000 divots each year!
While golfers may be unaware of the impact of their play, these numbers are mind-boggling if you – the superintendent – are the party responsible for repairing these blemishes to your playing surfaces. Not many superintendents have the luxury of staffing sufficient personnel to address these repairs without some assistance. However, if you do a good job of educating golfers, rangers and pro-shop staff and provide them with what they need to easily address these repairs, you and your staff may not have to spend much time repairing ball marks or divots.
Much of what we learn in the turf industry comes from other turf managers. Thus, the best source of advice for repairing ball marks and divots is out there on the thousands of golf courses across the country. Here, I’ll share some of the best ideas that are saving golf-course superintendents from throwing a lot of labor at ball-mark and divot repair.
