Making Your Mark!

When it comes to golf, I am a sucker for anything that helps me personalize my game and express myself on the golf course! One of my favorite new accessories is the Tin Cup ball marking device. It enables you to "Make Your Mark" on your golf ball. Just pick your favorite design and which Sharpie color you want to use, and away you go.

There are a bunch of fun designs to choose from. This month I am using the Tin Cup Awareness Ribbon design and coloring it in using my Pink Sharpie to support Breast Cancer Awareness. What's great about this one is, you can change it up to support any cause that you are passionate about.

{Awareness Ribbon, includes Pink Sharpie}
Some other fun designs include:
1. Tin Cup 'Luck of the Irish' (4-leaf Clover) | $19.95 (includes Green Sharpie)
2. Tin Cup 'Fleur Di Lis' | $17.95
3. Tin Cup 'Lone Star' | $17. 95
4. Tin Cup 'One Way' | $17.95

When I heard that this product was voted One of the Best New Overall Products at the 2010 PGA Merchandise Show, I, of course needed to have it!

Plus, it's easy and fun to use. The Tin Cup is composed of a 100% stainless steel shell and has either an engraved or stamped design on it.
  1. Use a permanent ink fine point or ultra fine point pen - we prefer Sharpies!
  2. Place a golf ball under the Tin Cup
  3. Trace or color the logo with the pen (color of your choice)
  4. Let the area dry a few minutes before use
Get the kids involved. Give them a bunch of balls, their favorite Tin Cup design and a Sharpie (with caution!) and let them color away.

Golf4Her has added this item to the 'Pretty In Pink' Webtique. A percentage of the sales from the Awareness Ribbon design will be donated to Birdies for Breast Cancer, a charity founded by LPGA tour member, Cristie Kerr. Learn more >>

USGA Rules 12-2: Identifying Ball
The responsibility for playing the proper ball rests with the player. Each player should put an identification mark on his ball. If a player has reason to believe a ball at rest is his and it is necessary to lift the ball in order to identify it, he may lift the ball, without penalty, in order to do so.

Before lifting the ball, the player must announce his intention to his opponent in match play or his marker or a fellow-competitor in stroke play and mark the position of the ball. He may then lift the ball and identify it, provided that he gives his opponent, marker or fellow-competitor an opportunity to observe the lifting and replacement. The ball must not be cleaned beyond the extent necessary for identification when lifted under Rule 12-2.

If the ball is the player's ball and he fails to comply with all or any part of this procedure, or he lifts his ball in order to identify it when not necessary to do so, he incurs a penalty of one stroke.

If the lifted ball is the player's ball, he must replace it. If he fails to do so, he incurs the general penalty for a breach of Rule 12-2, but there is no additional penalty under this Rule.
