New Kickstarters for golf this week are for a ball marker and an indie golf ball.
The Pitch: The Gotcha Golf Ball Marker is machined from solid brass and enamel colored. Flipping the marker over changes it from an “in this hole” gesture to an “ok.”
Why I Might Be Interested: It’s cute and different.
Why I’m Holding Back: Expensive for a lark.
The Pitch: It’s a two piece ball that is supposed to increase your confidence and inject a measure of humor into the game.
Why I Might Be Interested: I sincerely believe golf needs more independent producers.
Why I’m Holding Back: As far as I can tell, it’s just a generic two piece ball. The humor is sophomoric.
The Pitch: A premium backpack for travelers, photographers and adventurers. The three way carry design — suitcase, briefcase, backpack — is nice.
Why I Might Be Interested: I love the way this backpack organizes things.
Why I’m Holding Back: Do I need another backpack?
And a couple still in the pipeline …
The Pitch: Jolly Golf is an aluminum device that attaches to your clubs for short game practice sessions. The device is designed to block incorrect wrist movements, encourage proper rotation of the shoulder and develop proper rhythm in the swing. The producers also suggest that for beginners, it can get them into the game more quickly.
Why I Might Be Interested: It looks like something I could tuck into my bag and practice with while waiting on slow days at the course.
The Pitch: Designed to help with putting practice, the PuttMate is a ramp with a hole in the front and a collection box in the rear. Missed putts are automatically returned. Putts made are collected in the box.
Why I Might Be Interested: Winters are long here in Michigan, and putting is something nearly everyone can do to stay in touch with the game.
