You're dead wrong, as I just like to see things done properly...to take care of the course.

And almost everyone I've watched that uses that type of divot tool, uses it improperly...thereby making the pitchmarks worse.

Those are bad tools. And you shouldn't need "leverage." Leverage implies that you're popping up the divot, which is NOT the way to fix a divot.

It astounds me that Scotty Cameron of all people continues to make divot tools that actually harm putting surfaces more than they help them.

Remember people we own the golf courses. Let's take care of what we own. Fix the ball marks. Rake the traps. If you can't due to a disability of some sort, ask your playing partners. I bet they would help you out.

I played De La Vista today and the greens had been sanded. They were in terrible shape. But this does not mean you don’t need to repair your ball marks! I bet I repaired four or five ball marks per green in addition to mine.

Come on folks, let’s all help take care of our courses!
I do that on almost every green I play. It's ridiculous. and this, again, is an area where the ambassadors should say something to the people who are not doing it. I also often empty my sand bottle within the first three holes and am looking for an ambassador to refill it.
