As the world becomes more and more eco-friendly, the words reduce, reuse, and recycle have become a mantra not only for worm-worshipping hippies, but for the everyday man.

So maybe you are looking to save up for the vacation, maybe you happen to lose more balls than your partners like, or maybe you even want to be a little more environmentally friendly after that last game where you hit a squirrel on the head after a chip from the rough – either way Knetgolf has you covered with our wide selection of refinished golf balls.

While the casual observer might write the game of golf off as a stuffy old game, the true golfers among us know that it is a game of passion, and like any passion the emotions associated with the commitment to the game can be a little….tumultuous to say the least.

There’s the lucky ball, the lucky socks, and the lucky club.

Sports superstitions aren’t exactly news – they’ve been around for as long as the game has been played, and many people believe that having positive superstitions improves your game. I agree - peace of mind means a piece of cake, or so I keep telling myself when I tape four leaf clovers all over myself in the vain attempt to lower my score. But what you might not know is that you are not alone in your golf superstitions – even the pros have their version of the playoff beard.
