Dave's Take: The DivPro 6-in-1 Golf Tool

DivPro: The 6-in-1 Golf ToolMulti-Tool Madness

2061822871_DivProTool-3.jpg.297b39b109cc4c943f5be43e10b7e541.jpg

I’ve been a sucker for multi-tools since I was a kid. I think that my love affair with them started either with my first Cub Scout pocketknife, or perhaps a bit later with the mother-of-all multi-tools, the Swiss Army Knife. I loved having a single tool that could be used in every situation. I didn’t ever plan on an adventure where I’d need to scale a fish, cut a tree branch, punch some leather, and then pick something out of my tooth, but it was good to know that my Swiss Army knife had me covered should the need arise.

The DivPro 6-in-1 golf tool may not be as dynamic and broad ranging as the Swiss Army knife, but the comparison between the two is not that much of a stretch. You carry one tool that can handle multiple jobs, as opposed to packing multiple tools.

The key for any multi-tool though is performance. Jack-of-All-Trades, Master of None is not a title that we want to see on a tool that we need to actually work. A screwdriver that bends during use is not improved just because it sits next to a bottle opener in the knife.

With this in mind, let’s take a look at the six functions of the DivPro, and see how they measure up in on-course testing.

Div Pro

DIV Pro is a pocket organizer for golfers tired of searching for the right tool every hole. The DivPro is a multi-functional golf gadget that incorporates the following:

  • Cigar Holder
  • Ball Marker 
  • Club cleaner 
  • Grip Saver 
  • Divot tool 
  • Shotgun Can Opener 

Cigar Holder: 4/5

The DivPro did a fine job of keeping my cigar off of the grass, or from being lost when I drive away from the hole, forgetting that the cigar was balancing on the window ledge. The only deduction is that the holding apparatus has a fixed geometry, being made of inflexible metal, and as such cigars of different lengths and different gauges may require a bit of finagling getting them to balance. It’s also not quite as convenient as a clip that attaches to the push or power cart.

Ball Marker: 5/5

The DivPro has a easy-to-remove ball marking coin that attaches to the tool with a magnet. The coin stayed in place while the DivPro was in my pocket, and it came off easily when it was time to mark. All solid here.

Club Cleaner: Unscored!

I don’t have a photo of this one because there was no way that I was going to cram the metal points of the DivPro into the forged grooves of my Srixon 765 irons. YMMV on this but I’m not doing that. As a caveat, the DivPro did a nice job of cleaning grass and mud from my grooves in my shoes.

Grip Saver: 5/5

I am not a fan of power cart golf, and one of the reasons is needing to take multiple clubs from the cart to chip, then putt, or just to bring a few when yardages are uncertain. For me, there is nothing worse than picking up a damp, grass-encrusted putter grip. When it’s that type of round, I always have a tee tucked into the back of my cap for grip elevation. The DivPro provides a stable platform, even wider than a golf tee, which should keep your grip out of the morning dew.

Divot Tool: 4/5

The DivPro does a fine job of fixing pitch marks. The tines are narrow enough to go into the green easily, with the geometry of the tool providing plenty of leverage for usage. My only dings on the tool come from its overall size. It’s just a bit big for pocket carrying for my tastes. I usually only have a switchblade tool and my coin marker in my pockets when I play. The DivPro is a bit longer, and a bit pointy on both ends to be 100% comfortable for me, but once again, YMMV.

Shotgun Can Opener: 4/5

It’s been a minute since shotgunning beers was a standard routine in my golf round. Sure, it still happens during the occasional scramble, but I tend to buy good beer these days, ones that are better savored than shotgunned.

Anyway, for the sake of research, I gave the shotgun tool a test, and it did a fine job. Can geometry will effect the latching on of the tool. The one I used had a rounded bottom and it was a bit wiggly. Once attached, the leverage was good, and the point sharp enough to punch through the aluminum. Watch out for the spray.

The resulting hole was ample, and the shotgun process took the expected three seconds to complete. It’s a solid shotgun tool, easily better than a key, tooth, or tee. It also opens up glass bottles too, but don’t bring glass to the course. That’s not cool.

If you really want to take your next round up a level, the DivPro package also includes the rules for playing Shotgun Golf, with full incorporation of shotgunning beers. The marshals will love you.

I’d say that for $14 with Prime shipping on Amazon, the DivPro sits nicely in the price to value ratio. My only real gripe is that it is a little big for my preferences because of the can opener end. It’s not a deal killer, just worth noting. If you happen to shotgun beers when you play golf, this little tool may be just what you are looking for.

.... nice post. As always - great photos too! Wonder if they make a model with a built-in Roach Clip. LOL

I'd love to see the rules card for Shotgun Golf. I'm sure we have a few Shotgunners in the forum.

Defiantly favors better players as far as avoiding becoming a drunken sot. But the better player also has to pay for his partners demise. I think I'll just stick with the ole tried and true $Na$sau$.

Hmm, according to the back of the packaging the product includes some of the most necessary tools used in golf along with a few bonus features.  So which are necessary and which are bonus?  Guess it depends on the golfer.
