Golf's Newest Equipment Designer Is 11 Years Old
By Torleif Sorenson on 1/15/14
Hannah Dupay (above, left) of Boise, Idaho kept losing ball-markers — and she doesn't like wearing hats or visors, even if they include ball-marker clips:
"I wanted to find a way to have cute hair and stuff but also have my ball maker with me. I don't like hats and ball markers were always falling out of my pocket."The 11-year-old's mother threw down the proverbial gauntlet:
"I told her she couldn't keep losing ball markers or I was going to take it out of her allowance," her mother, Lisha Southern-Kelly said. Dupay wondered about a headband that came with a ball marker. "'Great,' I thought. 'I'll just go on line and buy her one.' I saw that there wasn't anything like that out there."So, Hannah decided to take matters into her own hands — and came up with a clever solution.
In creating her own ball-marker headbands, she has also started her own business: Goodie Girl Golf, LLC. The headband ball markers carry a decidedly fashionable bent that directly appeals to female golfers — younger ones, especially. Four versions exist, along with separate ball-markers.
And while your humble correspondent will not be at the PGA of America golf show next month, Hannah Dupay and her Goodie Girl Golf headbands and markers will be. It will be interesting to see how much response she gets from convention attendees. We're predicting... lots of response.
