Smart Ball Marker!

by Max on Thursday, October 2nd, 2008

For hundreds of years, professional and amateur golfers alike have been using a coin to mark their balls.  Now, here’s a new, innovative Smart Ball Marker from Titleist developement team that will help you align the ball better while also preserving the location of the ball much better.

Great concept and I am sure a bunch of pros are using this already on tour.

SAN MARCOS, Calif. — Scotty Cameron was excited. Actually, he was more than excited. He was pumped up, his enthusiasm bubbling over as he was proudly displaying his latest innovation.

It’s called the Scotty Cameron Ball Tool and it’s basically the next generation in ball markers. It’s a simple flat, square piece of metal with a small semi-circular indention cut into one side where the golf ball goes. Stamped on the marker right next to the indention is a series of alignment markers that allows the player to line up his putt even after he marks his ball.

Cameron got the idea earlier this year after he became aggravated watching professional golfers spend so much time going back and forth between the ball and the hole to make sure their balls were aimed properly at the cup.

    I like the ballmark idea, I find it very annoying when people go back and forth trying to line the ball up just right.. seems like more of a hassle then it helps, perhaps this will be easier

  2. I always thought this was around, didn’t realise people used coins!
