Is this the coolest pitch mark repairer you have ever seen?

There is a stat that is often dished out when we talk about people not repairing their pitch marks on greens. 

You'll often see it on the first tee wherever you are playing. It usually will sit alongside a bucket of dirt for you fill in your divots.

It reads: 

"The average number of ball marks made on greens per round is eight per golfer. Assuming only 130 rounds are played each day on your course, your greens receive 1,040 impressions daily, 31,000 per month or more than 374,000 per year. Are you wondering how to make a putt under these conditions? Repair your pitch marks."

Quite a remarkable statistic, and for ball strikers like yours truly hitting 18 greens in regulation choppers like me it really hammers home just how much damage we can do to the greens if we don't take two seconds to repair them. 

It's frustrating to say the least when people don't repair their pitch marks, especially when you know it's coming from members. 

We all pay for the privilege and want to putt on the best greens we can possibly have at the given time of year. 

That's why you should always have something at your disposal. Then we saw this:

That is seriously cool. Here at GolfMagic, we are advocates for having one of these placed on the side of each green. 

Yet we know that in all likelihood someone will end up pinching it. 

Still, it certainly could save you some time, particularly if you are of a more senior age and have trouble bending over.
