The Divotmaster® divot repair tool is an effective and extremely useful tool in the battle with ball marks. I have found it to be easy to use and precise in the repair process. I would recommend this tool to anyone who struggles with ball marks and is looking for an efficient way to manage them."

"We have tried the Divotmaster® at Mariana Butte Golf Course and are really impressed with how well it works. The set-up people now carry one with them to use instead of the more expensive mechanical ones."

My husband uses it all the time! It does a fantastic job. We play a 9 hole learning center associated with an Arnold Palmer design in Alton, Illinois. We often play there to sharpen our short game and the greens are often riddled with ball marks. Sometimes he goes out to just fix ball marks to take care of the course. I've seen him fix 100+ ball marks in a round and when we have come back a few days latter, you couldn't even tell there was a previous impression! Good Product. JE Maryville, IL
John Luna was on his way to work one day when he decided to stop at Highland Hills Municipal Golf Course for a few minutes of practice on the chipping green. After hitting a small bucket of balls, he realized how many ball marks dotted the green. At the same time, he also thought of how many marks are left on greens and never repaired. A lot of golfers will hit to the green, then drive their carts around to the other side and forget to go to where their ball hit to repair the divot it left, Luna said. I am one of those guys who walk to the green and fix as many divots I can find. But Luna, who lives in west Greeley, also realized there is the right way and the wrong way to fix a divot. Even some low handicappers, who play a lot of golf, don't repair them properly. And it does require bending over to lift the grass where the ball hit, then tapping the grass back to level with the putter head. Luna thought there had to be a better way -- an easier way. So he invented the DIVOTMASTER. He obtained a patent on his invention in December of last year as well as protection for the brand name, and he designed a Web site earlier this year. And, working with Mirage Productions Inc., 300 E. 16th St., he produced a video on his invention. The DIVOTMASTER is a ball mark repair tool that attaches to the end of a puttergrip. . It has eight angled plastic spikes that are covered by a snap-on cap. When a golfer comes to the green, he can remove the cap and, without having to bend over, he can jab the tool into the ball mark, fixing the mark by tapping the grass down with the putter head. In about 24 hours, any signs of the ball mark are almost invisible. It's like using three tools at once and it repairs a ball mark correctly, Luna said. Mr Luna worked for Hewlett-Packard for 19 years, owned and operated a one-man machine shop in Greeley Colorado. It is there where he designed and built a plastic injection mold to make his DIVOTMASTER. Today Mr. Luna is semi-retired but the DivotMaster is still a passion. Everyone likes well kept greens.
