Golf course superintendents, pros and golfers alike have a new weapon for their ball-mark and brown-spot repair arsenal – the jabAERATOR, invented by Felix Paz and a product of Felmar Products LLC (Boca Raton, FL). The tool features a sleek, ergonomic design that makes it universally easy to use by all and eliminates the need to bend down to repair ball marks. In application, users simply place the jabAERATOR over the ball mark or brown spot, step on the base which releases 16 pins designed to flatten the depression, while allowing air, water and nutrients to regenerate the turf faster. A video at www.jabAERATOR.com demonstrates the product’s easy, effective use.
The jabAERATOR is 29 inches long with Stainless Steel pins, a 4-inch Stainless Steel base and anodized aluminum cap and handle. It weighs 3.7 lbs and has an area for name and logo engraving. The product is already in use through an initial pilot program started in the Southeast.
Among the clubs who have been using the jabAERATOR is The Old Course at Broken Sound. Its PGA Professionals put out this statement: “We started using the jabAERATOR every other day beginning in September of 2016, and we love the results. Our high season starts October 1st and lasts through May 15th. During this period, we average 150+ players a day. Using the jabAERATOR has allowed us to repair ball marks and aerate brown spots quickly and easily, making our greens strong, healthy and looking great through our busy months.”
According to industry data, the average number of ball marks made on greens per round is eight per golfer. Using the example of 130 rounds played each day on a course, it would receive 1,040 pitch marks daily or 31,000 per month and over 374,000 annually. Ball marks left unattended not only interfere with golfers’ putts, but also result in unsightly brown-spots. Repairing ball-marks and brown-spots is a costly, labor-intensive process when left unattended. The jabAERATOR is a tool designed to address this ongoing challenge for golf course superintendents and pros.
