The new year brings many resolutions. For golfers, keeping fit, hitting the local course more often and improving our game are all important promises. One of the best ways to achieve these aims is to invest in some new golf technology. The following game-changing golf products will change the way you see the course and help you develop a new appreciate for the sport of golf.
Mark Mender Divot Tool
One of the most advanced in its class yet technologically-basic golf devices for 2017 is the Mark Mender. It is a common courtesy to look after the green for other players – and competitors. Ball marks can leave a once pristine green in a mess if not handled correctly. The Mark Mender is a genius divot repair tool with a four pronged “poke and pinch” system that mends the green and covers up the mark in no time at all.
The use of “space-age” polymers means that this divot tool should hold out for thousands of rounds. The small size allows it to easily fit into a golf bag, so there is no excuse not to carry it with you. If that wasn’t enough, this divot tool doubles as a cigar holder, as well as grip rest and ball mark. In essence, it’s a four-in-one divot repair tool that takes the win among all other devices in its class. Ideal for golf tournament giveaways, custom promo items, or unique groomsmen golf gifts, the Mark Mender is a great tool for many needs.
