Gear up for the summer golf season with CHAMP tees, a Club Glove caddy towel and Tin Cup ball markers
Now that it’s finally golf season - it snowed in northern Michigan and several other Midwest states last week - isn’t it time to start planning for the games to be played ahead?
It’s time to collect the proper tools to play your best golf. I’ve got three suggestions, all of which are very affordable.
* Every golf course gives out tees these days, but if you’re a hacker like me, they split every shot or two. I’ve upgraded to the plastic tees by CHAMP, specifically the biodegradable FLYtee. I like that I only have to put one or two into my pocket before the round, instead the five or six if I’m using regular wood tees. They are durable and long-lasting. The ‘My Hite” packs come in several different sizes, so golfers can find what works for them. For more visit www.champgolf.com.
* It’s about time we all replace that ripped old towel hanging from our bags with a new caddy towel by Club Glove. These large towels can clean clubs, balls, shoes, spills and even the dreaded muddy splash shot while trying to extricate a ball from a water hazard. They come in all sorts of colors as well. They have been used by countless PGA TOUR pros, including Rory McIlroy and Nick Watney. Limited edition “No. 1 Dad” and “USA” towels are available just in time for Father’s Day and Fourth of July celebrations. Visit www.clubglove.com for more.
* Since I don’t play competitively, I’ve never been much for “marking” my ball, but that may change with my new Tin Cup stencil set. They’re simple and fun to use. Whatever pattern suits your whims - there are dozens to choose from - simply put the mold over your ball, color in the pattern and bam! You’ve got yourself a shamrock or flower or some other type of distinctive marking. It pays to mark your ball. A couple years ago, I played a round with a member at The Olympic Club in San Francisco. We both hit our shots stiff within five feet of the hole on a blind uphill par-3. Neither of us marked our balls, so we just guessed who was who. It would have been quite an argument if one of them would have gone in for an ace. For more about Tin Cup visit here.
