Moon Marker ... right or wrong?
« on: October 08, 2014, 09:58:17 AM »
When it comes to alignment aid anyone has his own philosophy, well I’ve got mine as well.  I came up with a simple idea, maybe not that original but truly authentic  and effective.  I’ve always had an hitch reading greens. Therefore, I thought I could combine a tool like a ball marker to the benefit  of an alignment sightline.

The moon marker  can be placed behind the ball and with its shape allows you to have a correct visual contact with the ball without any discontinuities. The central sightline is aligned with the ball while the converging side lines help to position it correctly to visualize the shot. The moon marker can also be used while the golfer is positioned on the ball to focus on the shot from above. It’s made of aluminum, wood or plexiglas, light and colored, it  can be kept  in your pocket or the golf bag and used when needed.


I tried it myself along with some professionals,  having a good feedback from them.

 

What’s your opinion? Have your say!

thanks

I like it - looks great and very functional.  It looks pretty thick though.  Some of the guys I play with complain about using the poker chip markers when it is anywhere near their line.  They'd say the same thing about this.

It is actually, but you're right. It could be a bit less thicker.

thanks a lot

That is exactly my feedback, so I am sure it is on the minds of others... too thick is a problem when it is near another line.
