Video - Divot Repair
Incorrectly and unrepaired fairway divots are an eyesore to our otherwise pristine bentgrass fairways. They also diminish the quality of the playing conditions of any quality fairway turf. Nothing is more unfair for a fellow golfer than to hit a perfect shot right down the middle of the fairway only to have his or her ball come to rest in
an unrepaired divot. It is the responsibility of every golfer to leave the course in better condition than he or she found it.

The following video shows the best way to repair or replace fairway divots. Take a look.
