Mine I had done by Liberty Ball Markers. Have one on order from Johnston Gray Designs as well. I think having a nice, heavy, personalized ball marker is a lot of fun.

Unique in my circles, where US coins or throwaway plastic ball marks with a peg are the norm. But I realize there are far more creative ball marks.

Kraken Golf has some awesome unique ball markers that aren't necessarily round. They've released an octopus and a can of whoop a.. I'm hoping to get my own soon.

PS: I absolutely love Liberty Ball Markers as well. I've got 3 of their markers and absolutely will get more in the future.

That Kraken stuff is pretty cool, but who the heck is paying $80+ for a ball marker?

Does he have a website? I'm looking for some things to do as giveaways for a charity golf outing I host in August. Those are pretty sweet!

This is my first attempt at a ball marker.  It's a bit small once I finished rounding it out and bevelling the edges.  It's about the size of a nickel.  Stamping is mediocre, but this was a test run.  The phrase is from a tournament that my normal foursome played.  As the last of our group was in his downswing one of out guys yells, "Let's go boys!!!".  This resulted in a very high very right shot to start the tourney.  Rofl.  Anyway, I hope to improve on this and make 1 for everyone in our foursome.

The Damascus gets the most use. But if I need a big-time performance I break out the bear or the beibs

Here are some timascus markers, made from three different billets/patterns.

Went through a few "hat clip" (I wear them on my belt) styles and magnet setups before landing on the final two belt pieces below.  The magnets were often too weak and the timascus would fall off of the holder.  I ended up just epoxying a 0.5mm neodymium magnet to both the holder and the marker.  The two markers were thinned down to around 0.9mm, ended up being close to dime thickness after joining the pieces.  I would still like to find some holders that weren't as wide, but finding one in silver and a black is tough.

This is everything I carry during a round, either the bronze or blue setup.  One big far away marker and one small thin one.  The forks unfortunately are losing a little color on the tips from use, maybe a re-torch down the road.  I'm still strongly debating taking the black finish off the tool similar to the blue one, maybe make the bronze contrast better.
