Before my game last week, I bought a pitch mark repair tool that included a ball marker at the Gillette Ridge Golf course. I love the course, and it’s cool to have a physical embodiment of that affection in the form of an exclusive logoed item.

Have you ever wondered how golf markers work?

A ball marker is a helpful tool that allows you to remember where your ball landed, so you can easily find it again. If you are playing ready-golf and your partner’s ball is farther away, this will help get your ball out of the way.

Not only are fanny packs legal to use, but they can also be stylish if you want them to be. But let’s explore all of the other things they can be used for, how to place them without penalties, and so on.

What is a ball marker in golf?

The term ball marker is significant for two different reasons.

The first way to use a ball marker is by marking the spot on a golf green where your ball is located.

  • After you hit your ball onto the green, you may want to move it out of the way so another ball doesn’t hit it. The ball marker is a small, flat object that you place on the green where your ball is located. When it is your turn to putt, pick up the ball and put it back in its original spot.
  • “Ball marker” can also refer to a device that golfers use to add an identification mark to their ball. This is helpful so the golfer can easily locate their ball again if it gets lost.

The identification mark will be a distinguishing stripe or decoration. It will help you set your golf ball apart from the others on the green.

Where do you place the ball marker?

You will have to think about where to place your ball marker differently depending on the type of ball marker it is.

A golf ball marker is used to indicate the position of your ball on the green. You will place it down on the green where your ball lands.

To mark your ball’s location on the green, place a small, flat ball marker in its spot. You can customize your marker to add an unique style on green.

Not only is it considered poor manners, but it is also against golfing etiquette to place your marker in a spot that would block someone’s line of sight or “path” to the hole.

There are times when it would be practical to make sure that the ball marker is not in the way of your fellow golfers. So, place your putter down horizontally next to the ball, making sure that it’s out of the way of where the golfer behind you may be putting. Place your ball marker there.

You can place the ball marker anywhere on the golf ball.

You can personalize your ball by adding an identification mark. This will be something golfers use to help the ball stand out from others on the course.

What does Tiger Woods use for a ball marker tool?

Professional golfers all have their own unique styles. For some of them, part of this includes certain superstitious behaviors they engage in while playing.

They may think that the act is going to help them in some kind of way. For example, Tiger Woods, the 14-time major winner.

The man who has been golfing for decades still does the same thing every time he gets to a putting green; He takes out his putter and tries to hit the ball into the hole.

For his ball marker, Tiger Woods will use a coin with the heads up.

For Tiger Woods, there’s nothing on the green that can match a coin. The ball marker of choice for arguably the greatest golfer to ever live is just a plain old coin, heads up.

Can I use a coin to mark a ball instead of a ball marker?

If Tiger Woods can use a coin as his golf ball marker, why can’t you? All you need is a small, flat object. A coin works well, but anything else that resembles its shape will do the trick.

ensure that the object is not too thick and will not interfere with any other golfers hitting the green.

Be creative with what you use on the golf course to help your game, whether it be a coin or something else.

Mark my words, you’ll find a lucky coin sooner or later that allows you to make putts better than ever!

Final Thoughts

All you need to mark your ball’s location on the green is something small and unassuming.

In many cases, certificates become more of a talking piece from a course you have taken in the past or even a poker chip that looks cool.

Get a skinny and shallow golf cart so that it gets out of the way of the golfer behind you.

I prefer markers that are less obtrusive. But, as I mentioned before, I get most of mine from pitch repair tools anyways and that is good enough for me.
