Don’t risk losing the ability to play your favorite sport – golf.

It’s common knowledge that as you age, it becomes harder to do easy tasks and activities. For golf, this includes picking up tees and golf balls across the course. Driving from the tee box, picking up your ball after putting, and even marking your ball. In as little as one round of 18 holes, you can bend and stoop hundreds of times. For me, that doesn’t sound like something I can do everyday for the rest of my life. You don’t need to have troubles bending over to be proactive about saving your back, hips, and knees. The earlier you stop bending, the longer you can play. So what are those “ball picker uppers” and “tee placers” that are going to help you? We’ve compiled a list of the 4 best golf ball pickup tools, teeing devices, and ball markers.

These 4 simple products will save your golf game:


Use the Joe´s Original BackTee teeing device to insert any tee into the ground. You can also place the ball on the tee, and then pick the tee up after hitting! The Backtee is simple to use and an excellent golf ball teeing device for golfers that want to eliminate bending and stooping when teeing their golf ball up! Included are slightly larger tees with every Joe’s Original Backtee purchase to avoid the frustration with smaller tees. This product has some of the best reviews on the market at less than half the cost of the competition.

You can’t go wrong with this three finger golf ball retriever/golf ball picker upper! This new design features the inclusion of a regulation size golf ball marker. Simply screw this into the end of any golf club for a simple ball pickup tool. The Upright Claw ball pickup tool works incredibly well. This is the newer, improved version of America’s #1 ball pickup tool.

Mark your golf ball with style, and without bending over. You’re probably wondering, how am I supposed to mark my golf ball without actually getting close to the ground? The answer is simple. Just use magnets. The putting pack comes with two adhesive magnets to stick on the bottom of your putter. Then you can simply use a metal ball marker (included in the bundle) and magnetism to place your marker where it needs to be. This can be a life saver on the green, especially when you end up 3 putting.

The AirLift Tees, also known as Birdbath Tees, are a great choice for golfers of any age or ability. The virtually unbreakable 3-1/2″ long plastic tee, with its over-sized ‘birdbath shaped’ 11/16″ diameter head, offers durability, easy ball placement, and added loft to the ball path. These tees are great for senior players or those that prefer a wider tee rim. The AirLift Golf Tees feature the same standard length as other tees. The top rim is wider (11/16″) to allow for easier tee-up and more forgiveness as you tee off.
