If you haven’t discovered Golfdotz for yourself yet or aren’t sure how they work, I’m here to help.
This cool little product is a high-resolution ink transfer that marks your golf ball and adds some flair.
The company is approaching nearly 200 different styles and ways to mark your ball with a lot more styles to come in 2014. There is also a new Irish series if that’s what you’re into.
Golfdotz, which are made in the U.S., are available at some golf stores, including the PGA Superstore, and are a great stocking-stuffer because of their package size and price.
Each pack comes with 32 Golfdotz and retail for $5.99 on golfdotz.com. And if you use coupon code “XMASKB15″ you can receive 15 percent off your order now through Dec. 25.
It’s incredibly easy to put Golfdotz on your ball. Start with a clean ball and cut the sheet dotz apart (as seen in the picture below). Then, take a dot and hold it down on the ball for a couple seconds. Carefully remove the paper, and you’re done. Seriously, it’s that easy. The Golfdotz eliminate the need for the sharpies on your ball altogether.
There are designs for boys, girls, women, men, young, old; everything from smiley faces, to shamrocks, to simple targets or accuracy arrows. My golf friends all know I’ve been using Golfdotz for awhile now and some of the most common questions I’ve gotten are:
“Do they affect ball flight or the roll of the ball?”
They sure don’t! Golfdotz have gone through a rigorous testing process and conform to the R&A and USGA rules of golf.
“Are Golfdotz durable when used by golfers with high swing speeds?”
As long as they are applied correctly, Golfdotz are extremely durable. Most customers report being able to play multiple rounds with the same dot.
“What are your favorite dotz?”
Personally I love the cupcakes, hot lips, lucky clovers, lucky horseshoes, majestic butterfly, love USA, and aum designs. They also just introduced hashtag dotz that I think could be really fun.
Rory Sabbatini was the first professional golfer to use Golfdotz, and pushed for their approval process by the R&A and USGA. Christina Kim became the first female golfer to use Golfdotz on the LPGA Tour. A few other tour professionals that have gone on to win with Golfdotz include Marcel Seim, Gregory Bourdy, Jessica Korda and Maria Hjorth.
Golfdotz offers custom dotz and you don’t have to be on tour to get them. The company has a new custom program with a 50-pack minimum. For more information on that you can email firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can also put Golfdotz on golf clubs and golf shoes. I’ve even seen them used on soccer balls!
