The Divot Repair tool, or Pitchfork, is used to help remove the indentation, divot, caused by a golfball landing on the putting green. While one is not required to fix these, it's common golf courtesy to do so. The Wikipedia article is here

I, being frugal, and wanting to make an Instructable, realized that this would be a par-fect opportunity for an Instructable. (Mediocre Pun intended...)

As I have no little metalworking skill, I went with wood.

Step 1: Materials

You will need:

  • Wood, preferably a wedge-shaped piece, they're called "shims". They're sold in packs of 10-20, at around $0.25 or less a piece. As long as it's pretty thin, and over 2 1/2 in long (3.85 Cm)
  • A Pencil/Pen/Marker

  • Scissors
  • Saw, or whittling expertise.
  • Sandpaper
  • A Vise
  • Optional: Wood Finish/Slant.
<br /> Nice,&nbsp; the &quot;design&quot; looks a LOT like an old fashioned Boot Jack :-)&nbsp;<br /> <br /> <div id="refHTML">&nbsp;</div>
&nbsp;Thanks!&nbsp;<br /> <br /> Woah, it does, I was unaware of that when I was making it....<br />
<p>'tisn't a problem,&nbsp; I&nbsp;just opened your ible and my mind &quot;crossed it's internal eyes&quot; because what it saw was different then what it had read :-)</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Most boot jacks have another piece to them, underneath, to prop up the V shape area, so you can stick your boot in there and remove it without bending over.</p>
