Alignment is likely the most overlook and under appreciated fundamentals in golf. Often times while playing a round of golf, we feel directionally challenged. When shots consistently veer off target, we as golfers have a tendency to adjust our fundamentals, our swing and too often find yourself compensating one shot after another.
It’s rare that I find golf accessories, innovative or impressive because there generally isn’t a need for most of them. However, I do believe there is a need to mark your ball. Have you ever thought about the importance of ball identification? It’s is a key to pace of play and ensures you’re playing your golf ball and not the same Titleist #3 that the guy coming down the opposite fairway is playing. Have you ever finished a hole only to find out you finished the hole with a ball that wasn’t yours? I will bet it’s happened to you. With the help of Tin Cup products, you can eliminate similar problems from happening all while speeding up the pace of play.
Personally, more than half of all golf accessories made had little need in your golf game and offer little in terms of making your game better or more simplistic. All of which we can properly label a tchotchke (Yiddish for junk). However, I pride myself on finding some of the higher quality golf accessories that are unique and beneficial to our game. The golf ball buckle is a great new product from a new Canadian based company.
