So when should we actually repair our pitch marks on the fairway?
Say my ball is embedded and I take it out of the pitch mark.
Should I repair the pitch mark first then drop my ball or drop first, hit then repair?

Good question: i would say anytime before u leave the spot for your next shot - personally i would do it after I hv remove the ball from its pitchmark and taken the shot... (in case i create another divot and and so more productive to do the repairing of the 2 after - the pitchmark and divot Very Happy )

Ah ok... so it's up to us eh... No rules saying otherwise..

Repair of Divots, Ball-Marks and Damage by Shoes Players should carefully repair any divot holes made by them and any damage to the putting green made by the impact of a ball (whether or not made by the player himself). On completion of the hole by all players in the group, damage to the putting green caused by golf shoes should be repaired.

Repair after you have hit else you may be accused of improving your lie. Which is a penalty.
