I usually use a new quarter.
Lately, I've been thinking about finding a unique marker.
Some of those Russian  subway tokens look nice.
Do you have a marker with a cool history?
Is it sentimental  or good luck?

I have an assortment of stuff in my bag, and use whatever comes out when I reach in. Iíll try for about 2 seconds to find my Princeville poker chip, but if itís not quick, Iíll take whatever. Iíve got probably 4 poker chips, about $3 in quarters, a few foreign coins I got from my uncle when he passed away, and some big commemorative coin shaped things from my ex-wifeís company and my old job.

I use a 1 Euro coin that was given to me as change in Germany after buying the first round of beers I shared with my father-in-law there.  He & my mother-in-law are German immigrants, and we all took a trip to meet extended family soon after my wife and I were married.  He passed away about 18 months after the trip.  The marker is very sentimental to me and always a good reminder of the time we got to spend together.

I have a huge assortment of markers in my bag and pretty much just reach for whatever comes out first. I'm not a fan of poker chips because they're too big, coins feel slippery to me for some reason, so I just use whatever feels right at the time lol

I use couple of those old style plastic markers. They don't move if you tap them down and they are close to ground.I also use a Odyssey poker chip if not around any ones line.

I use a whole different heap of markers.

I was never one for having more than one but in the last couple of years, I have picked up a good amount from nice courses that I have been lucky enough to get to play so I now have markers from the Old Course, Troon, Trump Aberdeen, Nairn, Royal Aberdeen, Dundonald Links...

I lose markers about once every 3 months, so yeah... Some dude on eBay stockpiled colonel reb ball markers so I buy a few from him every now and then but otherwise just whatever is on the velcro flap of my titleist glove.

I've always found it easiest to use a marker from my ball mark repair tool.  It's the easiest item to find in my pocket and I usually have to take it out of my pocket to repair a ball mark anyway (if not mine, then one that a previous player has not repaired).

I've used a dime with a red X marked on it for years now (red X in case anyone else uses a dime).  That way if a ball happens to roll across it there is minimal effect on it's path since it's the smallest and thinnest of coins.

I use a ball marker.

Bought 100 of them for five or six bucks a decade ago. Ought to last me the rest of my life.
Everything has its drawbacks, as the man said when his mother-in-law died, and they came down upon him for the funeral expenses.
