PostSubject: Looking for this Cool Divot Tool, Anyone Know?   Tue Oct 20, 2009 11:23 pm

Came across this cool divot tool called the Champ Flip Fix II. The logo is also a ball marker.

Anyone know if it's available here? If not, is there anyone heading to the US can help me get a couple?

Sigh, still haven't got the hang of it. Thinks this should be the picture.

Oh cool, now no need to hunt down in the US. Cheers Weesern! Yippee!

Ironfist, the SC pivot tool if I remember correctly is around $25. Saw them before at Panwest Jalan Pemimpin long time ago. Overpriced in my opinion. But cool la...

Another cool one is the Oakley divot tool which comes free with selected tops or bottoms. Seen it at World of Golf also for $25 with a magnetic ball marker that's surprisingly badly designed. Hard to remove with one hand. If you clip on your cap, you must push it towards the left side of the cap if the marker is on the right side.

this velociraptor's claw looks really good lah! and i don't use a SC putter so a SC pivot tool would be kinda out of place. haha

Headlines "Plane hijacked by golfer with ironfists and divot tool used for grass!"

That will be a first....

Hee hee, by coincidence, got a friend in Ngee Ann City now. Going to check if the velociraptor/woverine's claws available at the Golf House there.

Feels like I'm destined to have this.

I discover the tool, post on forum where to find yesterday, then got reply here available at Golf House, today friend sms me at Ngee Ann City.... all the pieces coming together with right timing some more.

The customs officer must have seen the Austin Powers movie la. Came across Mini Me so scold Ur friend lor... knuckle duster is a knuckle duster according to the law, don't matter what size it is, hahaha...... For us plebians, black is black and white is white.

As for the velociraptor claw, o man, was the pitch fix they had instead at Golf Houes Taka. Called Golf House Suntec and they were out of stock, apparently very popular. But got referred to Marina Square branch, struck gold there. Reserved already. Tomorrow going down to get. Makes more sense than the Scotty Cameron one la which is $35 and the coating comes off. The Flip Fix II is only $21.90 and way cooler.

ooo.. marina square. got it. Smile thanks for posioning me!

and yeah i was eyeing the SC pivot tool in black but it looked like the paint would wear.. one thing i don't like abt the claw is the ugly CHAMP logo on it. if only they weren't so obvious with the brand name..

Thanks Mizuno, I'll be popping by Marina to get them later today. 2, in case I lose one. Sounds like they not bringing in any more of these when I spoke to the salesperson.

And let me poison you further Ironfist. Good news! The logo is a magnetised ball marker, can be removed, so no logo lor!

Or alternatively, look up Flip Fix on the net and see if they sell direct without the Champ logo on it. I believe the they OEM for Champ.

Would the swiss army golf too be better, i.e. the one which has golf implements including the divot tool repairer?

No no the ball marker poison has less effect on me... recently I bought super strong mini magnets from www.dealextreme.com, use the super elephant glue on one or two, stick them on a coin, and viola! DIY marker. (the base clip on the cap remains the same) ** cheapskate ** Razz

Just made one using the cant-use-anymore Marina Golf Range token (not MBGC), that range was closed making way for IR.

Hi all,

now we 'have' the tool, next is the 'method'

How do we actually use the divot tool 'properly'?

For me, i just poke the pitch mark many times till like a bee hive, and until it look flat on the surface...
