USGA Summary Points:Divot pattern impacts available tee space, divoted turf percent and divot recovery. Although scattered pattern had a higher area of impact and a higher percentage of divoted turf, this divot type was fastest to recover. This pattern would work well when sufficient driving range tee space is available. Concentrated divots had a lower area of impact and percentage of divoted turf, but required the most time to recover. The linear divot pattern appears to be the best divot pattern option as it had a lower area of impact and divoted turf than scattered pattern and a higher recovery rate than concentrated pattern. This pattern would work best when driving range tee space is limited which is likely the case for most.
