A Stroke of Genius
Miniature golf has a knack for evoking the competitive spirit of suburban families everywhere. Tapping the ball through the scary clown’s mouth at just the right time turns into a science. Efforts to fish your ball out of the stream often prove futile. And keeping your cool after your ball lands in the sand trap can be challenging. Otherwise, it’s fairly simple—the only term you need to know is “hole in one.”
However, if you’re looking to dazzle clients or other powerful decision-makers with your Arnold-Palmer-like skills, there’s a bit more to learn. For instance, what’s a bogey? Is it true that a double eagle doesn’t just mean two eagles hanging out together? What is all this talk about a sidehill lie? Google can help out with golf terminology, but if your goal is to brush up on selling golf-themed promotional items? Read on. Whether enhancing a prospect’s golf tournament fundraising event or teeing up with your partners while talking business, the following products are sure to be an ace.
A Safe Bet
Life is a series of risks—trusting yourself to remember where your ball landed after a member of your foursome knocks it out of place shouldn’t be one of them. Golf Tee Printers’ Custom Printed Poker Chip Ball Markers will help with that. Personalize a chip with your company logo, custom design or even a photo. Each side can have a different imprint. Choose from nine different color options. For more information, visit www.golfteeprinters.com.
The Elements of Style
Mother Nature doesn’t care if you’re in the middle of a competitive round of golf, so be prepared with the Ace Short Sleeve Windshirt from Charles River Apparel. The wind- and water-resistant MicroSport Microfiber shirt has mesh lining for breathability. Features include on-seam pockets, short-sleeve quarter-zip styling and a color block design on the collar, sides and at the zipper. The shirt comes in various colors and is available in sizes S through 3XL. For more information, visit www.charlesriverapparel.com.
April showers bring ... more showers, so stay dry with the PK Golf Umbrella from Rainkist Umbrella. Made from nylon fabric, the canopy boasts a 7-and-1 design. The auto-open umbrella has a steel shaft, a genuine wood handle and a matching sleeve with shoulder strap. For more information, visit www.rainkist.com.
A Need for Speed
The Scramble Pic from Scramble Ease LLC is ideal for clients looking for more advertising bang for their buck. The patented promotional golf tool is designed to speed up the Scramble (or Best Ball) golf format, a popular tournament style played at charity events. When a golfer reuses his or her Scramble Pic at an event, this results in viral advertising for the sponsor. A replacement for hole signs, the Scramble Pic offers 20" of four-color process decoration in a clear, visible tube and a perfect-fit ball suction-cup for “tap and go” easy golf ball pick up. The molded end-cap houses a strong magnet attaching the Scramble Pic to metal golf-cart windshield frames. For more information, visit www.scramblepic.com.
Tour-proven around the globe, the new Titleist Pro V1 golf ball from Pro Golf Premiums features even softer feel, more distance and is longer lasting. The multi-component construction utilizes soft-compression ZG process core technology and features a responsive ionomeric casing layer and an improved high-performance Urethane Elastomer cover system with a 352 tetrahedral dimple design.

Double the Fun
Some things were just made to go together: peanut butter and jelly, wine and cheese, the Olsen twins. Add the Callaway Razr Series Water Bottle & Caddy from Sweda Company LLC to that list. The black, insulated polyester water bottle caddy has bold color dobby center band accents and holds a 29 oz. smoke water bottle with the Callaway logo on the bottle and cap. A black web tab holds the round black carabiner clip for easy attachment. The caddy also has a drawstring closure to ensure a snug fit. For more information, visit www.swedausa.com.

It can be embroidered with up to 8,000 stitches. Add a grommet and carabiner (for an extra charge) to attach the golf ball-shaped towel to your golf bag. For more information, visit www.protowels.com.
