Players fixing their ball marks is truly covered in the rules of golf! It is not only important for the health of the turf but the players behind you have the right to a smooth putting surface.
In an effort to improve our putting greens and help you to "do the right thing", I will be available on the eighth green during Saturday's round of the Ryder Cup to answer questions about ball mark repair. I will also hand out ball mark repair tools and explain the differences.
I will post new pictures of the eighth green on Sunday morning showing our improvement. We have near 120 members in the field. I would be thrilled to see the eighth green become the ball mark repair "bench mark" by which all greens are measured.
