Operation of the pitch fork is done with one hand, as well as the removal and insertion of the ball marker. The blade of a new kind of tee hole puncher for hard or frozen ground also serves for cleaning the flutes of the golf club.

The economically manufacturable tool can also include, for general use, a knife blade, a scissors, a pincer, a tooth pick, a ball point pen, and other tools as the case may be.
