I golf, but I wouldn’t call myself a “golfer.” In other words, I own some golf clubs and I sometimes take those golf clubs to a golf course and use them to hit a tiny white ball around the course for three hours. If nothing else, it’s good exercise and it gives me a chance to do all the cursing and swearing that I’m not allowed to do at home.
That’s where this month’s prize comes in. It’s the Bella Swarovski crystal golf ball marker in the form of a juicy, succulent watermelon.
For those who don’t know, “golfers” (i.e., people who adhere to the strict rules of the sport), sometimes have to pick up their golf ball – usually when it’s close to the hole – to clear a path for another golfer’s putt. When golfers move their ball, they use a golf ball marker to remember its location. I don’t own a golf ball marker (I used to, but I lost it when I threw my golf bag into a pond), so I usually just use a penny or tiny stick or some other object to mark my golf ball’s location.
Like many golf ball markers, this one clips to the brim of your hat. It’s sort of like golfing jewelry that way. I’ll choose one comment at random from all the comments left on the blog this month to receive this prize. Golf clubs and swearing lessons not included.
