Golf course superintendent shares eye-opening pictures to make an important point

The subject of pitch marks may seem like an inconsequential one to non-golfers, but it’s something those within the golf community think about often.

When a ball lands on a green, it makes a small indentation—a “pitch mark.” If you don’t fix a pitch mark, the nice green surface won’t remain nice and green. It’ll turn brown and bumpy. Frustratingly, people leave them anyway.

So, in an effort to raise awareness about this unfortunate practice and how it affects the everyday lives of the grounds crews who work at golf courses, Lawrence Country Club Superintendent Adam Breitenfeldt shared pictures on Twitter.

A good point well made. Fix your pitch marks, people. Be considerate.
