Free ball marker - Page 2

post #19 of 30

Just got mine. It's about 3/16' thick and about 1 3/4" in diameter. Comes in a pretty nice case too.

dhansen, thanks for the tip.  Received mine on Saturday but had no idea that the center of the ball marker came out.  Bright, bold colors on the front. I like it.  THanks Matrix.

I know......I used the manhole cover for long putts and the small white marker when I am closer to the hole.  Works great....the larger marker has a sight line on it that helps.

I played in a few tournaments with one guy that uses a marker that is so large - I asked him if he could go to a smaller coin because it was distracting when I was putting.  The damn thing was more like a coaster to put your cold beer on! d2_doh.gif


It is pretty big, about the size of a silver dollar. But as several others stated it has a quarter sized middle marker that comes out. I used the big marker when I wasn't close to someone else's line, I used the little insert when I was.  Worked out great!

Smaller than my AimPoint Certified Instructor coin, larger than my kregan ball marker. :)

Oh snap!  I got mine out of the envelope - saw it was huge (like bigger than a manhole cover) - and was ready to toss it into the junk drawer in my office as a paper weight.  I didn't even realize it had a smaller marker that pops out until I saw this post.  Sweet!  This actually will go into my bag and I'll start to use it.  Nice!!

 

And I'm giving a skin to the OP.  Thanks for the link dude.  Appreciated...

Just got mine as well. Thanks for the heads up about the middle marker. Now I have to find mine! I will also be giving a skin to the OP.d2_doh.gif

Those markers remind me of a guy that I once played with that used a Mercedes hood ornament to mark his ball (German). I said "WTF! is that?".

 

Told him I wasn't going on to the next tee if the continued to use that thing. You'd think he knew better being a decent golfer, sheesh!

Played my first round with this ball marker yesterday... 26 putts - zero three putts!  My lowest putting round in a long time.  This thing is a keeper... c3_clap.gif

Wow, sounds like it's a players marker, I guess the inner marker is forged somewhere in Japan whereas the the outer manhole cover is clearly caste and has a big cavity in it (from where you remove the players marker) which allows them to move more mass to the perimeter. Bill Haas should hand them out to his playing partners.b2_tongue.gif

 

 

 

 

 

 

*Hmmm, I hope that came off as humorous as intended. I just reread it and it sounds like I'm being an a-hole LOL. f3_laugh.gif

Ok... This is my new favorite golf gadget... This type of marker is awesome.  I played my 2nd round with it yesterday... And enjoyed using it because as others have said - when you are far away from the pin - you can use the large marker without being in someones line (say 30+ feet out)... Then as you get within that closer range, easily pop out the smaller maker.  Genius.

 

I would like to know who the original OEM of the marker - so that I could have my company order some and handout to customers/clients at trade shows.  These things are sweet!
