GelTees are the world’s only fully biodegradable golf tees, with a mission. That mission is not only to lower the environmental impact of the game, but to help fund charitable organizations that improve lives through the game of golf. We’re changing commodity into community. Made from 100% pharmaceutical grade gelatin, GelTees biodegrade within days of being left in the elements. With more than 2.8 billion wooden tees made annually in the US alone, GelTees could prevent the destruction of 70,000 trees per year and keep more than 1600 tons of carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere. www.geltees.com.
ShoeTips helps golfers calm their minds and concentrate on the one or two thoughts they want to remember as they prepare to swing-boosting their confidence and enjoyment, and lowering their scores. Before you play, select two swing thoughts you want to remember from the 18 provided. Insert the labels securely into the two base clips and slide the clips easily, and snugly, over your shoelaces. The reminders will be in full view on your shoes as you address the ball. www.shoetipsgolf.com.
