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.
