    I tap the mark down initially with the putter and then just start pressing inwards in a circle going around it until it's flat and then tap it a few times again. Takes maybe 15 seconds but that's the best way I've found.

  2. I have played before and not been able to find my hall mark so I repaired everyone else’s instead 😅

    I'm the guy constantly repairing ball marks that aren't mine. People consistently just don't repair them. I just do it because it's the right thing to do. I definitely do repair mine as well, but I do t get many of them.

    Nice to hear him see that walking away from it is the worst thing you can do. Even as a greenskeeper
