We all know, or at least should know, that after three minutes of looking for a golf ball, if you haven’t found it, it’s lost.
But, how closely do you follow this rule? When was the last time you started the clock when you started looking for a playing partner’s golf ball?
If the answer is the same as most of us, then you might want to invest in the G-Timer.
This gadget doubles up as timer and a ball marker, and allows you to start the clock once you or your playing partner start searching for a golf ball.

The team behind the G-Timer say that the device will become an “essential tool in every golfer’s pocket,” and that on their three year journey to develop the high-tech ball marker, they employed a watchmaker to oversee the process.
“We wanted something small, in the pocket, the size of a ball marker yet with a large prominent button with a distinctive ‘click’ so that you can start it without even taking it out of your pocket,” they said.
