I’ve been using a very cool and shiny divot tool lately called DivPro. As you can see in the photos, this tool has a unique shape to it and it does quite a bit more than just fix ball marks.
Of course the main reason to own/use a DivPro is fixing ball marks. Please folks, fix your ball marks. If I have the time, I fix 5-10 marks on every green. I believe the golf gods will award you with made putts if you fix enough ball marks.
The DivPro does a great job of fixing ball marks. The long prongs of the tool and the angle the tool is bent allow for plenty of leverage, even on the hardest of putting surfaces.
The DivPro comes with a magnetic ball marker, which is nice.
The ball marker comes default with DivPro’s logo on it, but custom logos are available. If you are looking for a classy and unique golf tool to put your brand on for giveaways, golf courses, businesses or tee prizes, your logo on the DivPro’s ball marker is a great idea.
I’ve successfully snuck a couple of cold bottles of Corona onto the course. One problem, Corona is not a twist off cap! I’ve run into this situation a few times and had to smash the cap against the golf cart or a rock to get the cap off. With the DivPro’s bottle opener, I am no longer stuck with that problem and I don’t have to worry about breaking my precious Corona’s bottle.
There are many devices and ways people use to keep their club grips from touching the wet ground. I’ve reviewed several golf gadgets which do just that job. The problem is that they’re not convenient.
With the DivPro’s built in club holder, I can easily keep my grips off the wet ground. No more slippery grips and wasted shots. The club holder can also double as a cigar holder. It may actually be more important to keep the cigar dry than the grips!
My only critique of the DivPro is the size. This unit is much longer than a standard divot tool. The length does make the ease of use and functionality much better, but it does make it a bit difficult in your pocket. Sometimes the tool gets stuck in my pocket or jabs me. This isn’t a deal breaker and I’ll exchange digging a little harder in my pocket a couple of times per round for all the benefits of the tool.
The DivPro is a great divot tool with many convenient extra bonus features. It performs perfectly for fixing ball marks as seen in the image below.
The DivPro is available for purchase at The Golf Space SHOP, as well as the DivPro/No Joke web site.
