PITCHFIX GREENKEEPERPRO TO REVOLUTIONIZE BALLMARK REPAIR FOR GREENSKEEPING PROFESSIONALS
CHIP BECK TO DEMO TOOL AT GOLF INDUSTRY SHOW
Pitchfix USA, the global market leader in switchblade divot tools and other golf products, will share it’s latest divot repair tool – The GreenkeeperPro – by attending the 2019 Golf Industry Show at the San Diego Convention Center, Feb. 2-7. Pitchfix will have “Mr. 59” Chip Beck at its trade show booth #641 on Feb. 6-7 to demonstrate the new tool and talk to superintendents and buyers about the benefits of using the GreenkeeperPro at their courses.
The GreenkeeperPro features Pitchfix’s proprietary RepairTec pin technology, which was introduced three years ago with the company’s Fusion 2.5 divot repair tool. The Fusion 2.5 was named one of the top products of the year in 2017 and 2018 by Golf Digest’s Editors’ Choice Awards.
The GreenkeeperPro is a 33” tool designed to easily repair ball marks with just one injection into the green without bending down. The tool is constructed of a rubberized handle, carbon fiber shaft and a spring loaded steel cast head with stainless steel ‘teardrop’ pins. With one push down on the handle into the ballmark, the stainless steel prongs in the head pull up, creating a level finish and a perfectly fixed ball mark.
“We’re very excited to introduce the new GreenkeeperPro to attendees at the Golf Industry Show,” said Bart Fokke, president, Pithfix USA. “This is the first tool of its kind and it will make life much easier for superintendents and their staffs. We look forward to sharing the capabilities of the GreenkeeperPro with superintendents, golf course owners, club managers and buyers. It will revolutionize the process of repairing ball marks while not damaging the greens.”
“I like to fix several ball marks when I walk up to a green,” said Pitchfix Ambassador Chip Beck, a three-time U.S. Ryder Cup Team member, former Vardon Trophy winner and the second player to shoot a 59 in a PGA Tour event. “The GreenkeeperPro is an outstanding tool that makes it easy to repair multiple ball marks quickly and make it look as if the marks were never there.”
In addition to the GreenkeperPro, Pitchfix is introducing three new tools in 2019. The Pitchfix Tour Edition and Tour Edition 2.5 divot repair tools and the Pitchfix 4 in 1 MultiMarker Chip. These products were well received when introduced at the recently concluded PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando, Fla.
