Abstract: An improved ball mark repair tool which can be used to relieve compaction of the earth surrounding the ball mark in a correct manner and then gently force the earth upwardly and inwardly about the ball mark so as to raise the turf and properly fill the indentation. More particularly, in one form of the invention, a downward pressure exerted upon the handle of the device will urge spaced apart earth engaging repair prongs to penetrate the earth in an area surrounding the ball mark and then to automatically move the prongs inwardly relative to one another to loosen the soil and urge it inwardly and upwardly so as to correctly restore the surface of the green to a substantially planar condition.
Abstract: A lanyard connects a pair of head covers for golf clubs together by a connector section of predetermined thickness with a hole therein for receiving the lanyard. The lanyard includes an elongated line element having opposed ends with a pair of protruding members near each of these opposed ends. Each pair of protruding members has an outer most and and inner most member which are spaced apart a distance about equal to the predetermined thickness of the connector section. One end of the line element has a tab section that extends from an adjacent outer most protruding member nearby the one end of the line element which facilitates pulling the adjacent outer most protruding member through one hole in one cover. The other end of the line element has another tab section that extends from an adjacent outer most protruding member nearby this other end of the line element which facilitates pulling the adjacent outer most protruding member through this other hole in the other cover.
