Tin Cup Stencils. Snap. “Give Me Another Ball.”

What do you draw on your golf ball to identify it as yours? I’ve been known to draw dots on mine, initials, or use Golf Dotz. These days, I’m using my Tin Cup martini stencil to make my ball my own. These handy little stencils will make great stocking stuffers or even a nice Christmas gift in these tough times. Of course, Tin Cup has a great sale going on with a discount running from Black Friday through Cyber Monday, and the selection just keeps growing!

What’s your favorite symbol, logo, school team or cause? Tin Cup probably has you covered. If not, they also do custom stencils! (hmm… I wonder if they can do a Golf Chick logo!)

I like my martini dry, not at the bottom of a lake. 

If you have read much on this blog or follow my twitter feed, you probably guessed I’d have the martini stencil. I’m kind of predictable in that way, I suppose. Clearly I don’t have the patience to draw them with multiple pens and make it look like an actual glass with liquid and olives and everything. Also, I figure as soon as I spend that much time drawing on a single golf ball, it’s doomed to wind up at the bottom of a lake at its very next opportunity. This thought leads me to presume the naming of the product included consideration of that famous scene at the end of the movie Tin Cup in which Roy McAvoy hits ball after ball into the lake on the last hole at the U.S. Open. Yes, I realize the product is literally a sort of tin cup, but I won’t believe there’s not more to it than that. :)

I thought the whole stencil idea was a fun one but until I tried one for myself, I had no idea how much detail they could achieve! With the fine point Sharpie pen, it’s amazing how precise the images turn out to be. I never imagined that little olive pick would turn out so sharp. You can see some more of that incredible detail in this pic of  a group of some of the other standard designs they offer.

There are several other designs I want but I think my next  one is going to be that jolly roger. Or maybe the wine glass. Or maybe the dog. Ahh, I’ll probably end up with all of them. Heehee. They also come in themed packages, and with a handy little pouch to keep it clipped on or in your golf bag.

Want a 20% discount? Get one when you purchase anything on www.tin-cup.com from black Friday through Cyber Monday. Plus, you’ll get free domestic USPS shipping on purchases of $39 or more. Have fun shopping and getting that perfect little gift for your favorite golfer. Might as well throw one in for yourself while you’re at it. Which one’s it going to be?

Next post.

  4. Steve Says:

    I like the frog one, and correct me if i am wrong but is the one on the very top 2nd from the right a boy scout symbol? :p

  5. golfchick Says:

    Haha Steve, I have no idea what some of those symbols are. That one looks like a dog to me!

    BK – do you color it in red & blue? Love it!

    Joe – glad to help get you up to speed. Now, which one do you like? :)

  6. Steve Says:

    Oh sorry i mean’t second from the left. Hah yeah that one does look like a dog :p

  7. golfchick Says:

    Guessing you know that’s a fleur-de-lis and are not a Saints fan or something? ;)

  8. Steve Says:

    I am not a Saints fan, but i am a Broncos fan hah. the fleur-de-lis is the same symbol used in the boy scounts of america logo, When i see it i immediately think boy scouts.

    I think it would be cool if this company let you submit your own stencil design for them to make your own custom tin cup. Now that would be cool.

  9. Steve Says:

    Oops they do offer custom work. i totally missed that sentence, my bad!

  10. golfchick Says:

    I’m a Broncos fan, too! Childhood spent in Boulder. Notice I didn’t say “grew up” :)

  11. Steve Says:

    I love Colorado. I want to live there. My brother had a wedding in Denver so i spent a week in the city bar hopping and partying. Funnest vacation I’ve ever had. the Photographer decided he was going to tell everyone i played for the Broncos to find some company to join me for a night or two in my lonely hotel room :p

    I have a couple of these…. I like that they are metal, so they are really durable. I find that unless you use a very fine tip sharpie the ink puddles underneath and you get ink spillover of your image on your ball. I also would prefer that the images are a bit larger, they are quite small and if the image is facing down you still wont be able to identify your ball. Although I think its a great product, I have reverted back to two long red lines on my ball, visible from every angle, no matter how deep the rough.

    I always use a “cut” golf ball and pretend it’s smiling at me…that’s the easiest way to identify it!
