BOSTON, Mass – With the “no touch” flagstick rule in place during the world’s battle against the Coronavirus COVID-19, the Golf Ball Tender is the perfect product for golf courses open for play.
The original Golf Ball Tender is a pliable disk that attaches to the stem of the flagstick, resting at the bottom of the cup. Players simply lift the flagstick to retrieve the ball.
The COVID Clip, a new addition to the Golf Ball Tender package, eliminates the need to touch the flagstick. The COVID Clip attaches near the bottom of the flagstick, raising the Golf Ball Tender to a height from which the ball is easily retrieved from the hole. CLICK to see a short video of the product.
“With the CIVID Clip addition to our product, courses can reap two benefits from the Golf Ball Tender,” said Larry Koning, inventor of the Golf Ball Tender. “They no longer have to worry about frayed cup edges caused by players reaching into a tight space for their golf balls, and they can comply to the rules disallowing touching of the flagstick. It also provides a solution that is more appealing to the eye than using pool noodles.”
Golf Ball tender is made of a soft rubberized pliable material that will not damage the greens, unlike other products on the market. It fits all flagsticks and snaps on in seconds, as does the COVID Clip. No disassembling of the flagstick is necessary.
Once COVID-19 restrictions are lifted, the benefit of Golf Ball Tender lives on. Players no longer have to bend over the retrieve their ball from the cup.
“Back problems are common among golfers,” said Koning. “Bending over to get your ball out of the cup adds to this problem. With our product, that issue is eliminated.”
The Golf Ball Tender is available in custom colors. A set of 18 costs $215. For orders placed during the month of May, 2020, Golf Ball Tender will include the COVID Clip free of charge.
