Chrome divot tool and magnetic golf ball marker. Fun little kit to do. Marker turned from acrylic scrap.

Interesting little gadget. How does it make the ball? Why does the center piece come out?

Topomax, the center piece pops out to allow marking of your golf ball on the green so it’s not in the way of someone else putting (big faux paux in golf). I don’t want to get technical, but suffice to say us golf geeks take it pretty seriously if someone leaves their ball in our putting path! :) The tool part of it is used to push up a divot in the green where the ball lands…again, something else us hackers take pretty seriously! If I was only this serious about woodworking I might have a bona fide personal conflict on my hands!

Wow, I was way off. I thought you might scratch the ball to mark it to ID it as yours ;-)) I always thought I’d like to try golf, but had too many other priorities in the way.

Who knew you could learn so much about golf on a woodworking website? Ha!
