Golf Assesories

With a game that's been around for so many years, it can be tricky to find new and innovative products.  Don't get me wrong, there are lots of golf aids and gadgets that continue to hit the market, but we're trying to find the ones that truly enhance a golfers experience.  Here's a look at a few of the golf accessories that we evaluated over the last month...

Mirror Tee - Truest Zero Friction Tee
The Mirror Tee is an interesting concept, claiming to be the "truest zero friction tee" on the market.  What this means is that the tee has been designed to hold your golf ball while leaning forward at a 17 degree angle.  With your ball balancing on the edge the tee, it's ready for impact and to take flight.  I distributed a few of these tees to playing partners to get some feedback and got some mixed reviews.  Here were a few of the comments:
"Cool concept, I like it"
"Love the design and that they are virtually unbreakable"
"It's basically an oversized tee... I found it hard to push into the ground"

Tin Cup
Tin Cup is a golf ball marking tool that allows you to uniquely identity your balls.  A few weeks ago while playing golf, myself and a playing partner hit a couple of huge drives, both landing just left of the fairway.  Upon closer inspection, we could only find one of the balls, which we both claimed as our own.  With no identifiable marks on the ball, it left us in a tough situation.  Since then, I've started using the Tin Cup marking system to properly identify my golf balls.  My personal preference is the arrow logo, which not only identifies my ball, but also serves as a guide for lining up putts.

Glove Caddy
The Glove Caddy is a clip that attaches to your belt or pocket and provides a place for your glove while you're putting.  As a male golfer, I personally don't have any issues with stuffing my glove in my back pocket.  However, for female golfers who wear skirts with no pockets, this could be the answer you have been looking for.
