Description:

FIELD OF THE INVENTION

The present invention relates to a golf ball divot repair tool with a magnetic ball marker, level vial insert, distance-sighting gauge, and belt hook.

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS

FIG. 1 is a front view of the present invention.

FIG. 2 is a side view of the present invention.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION

The present invention has a tool (10) that is 3.5 inches long, 1 inch wide, and 3/16 inches thick. A level vial (20) is placed in the long axis—the 3.5 inch long axis. At a first end, tool (10) has two legs (30) that are each 1.5 inches long. Legs (30) are tapered on their distal end, and legs (30) have a slight concavity toward their medial end. The tool (10) has a magnetic button marker (40) at a second end. On two ends of tool (10) are scribed lines (55) with distance numbers. A belt hook (60) is disposed on tool (10) inline with level vial (20). The legs (30) have a slight concavity toward their medial end to rest the handle of a conventional golf club thereon when the distal ends of legs (30) are vertically placed in wet ground.

The magnetic button market (40) is removable to mark the user's ball. No other divot tool can be used to determine elevation and distance.

With the present invention, the user is able to look at the golf hole from his ball location and determine the angle of the green aiding putting. By placing a scribed line (55) on the present invention on the bottom of the flag at a distance, the user can determine the distance to the pin. The present invention can also hook onto a belt, repair divots, and holds ball markers to mark golf balls on greens.

The present invention extends to any and all embodiments within the scope of the following claims.
