Tin Cup introduces new 'Light it Up' golf ball marking stencil

FALLS CHURCH, Va. -- Tin Cup Products, LLC announces the introduction of "Light it Up," the latest style in its award-winning range of patented, Made in the USA, stainless steel golf ball marking stencils.

The company's "Cup of the Month" for July, Light it Up celebrates the tradition of Independence Day and is also inspired by the dynamite feeling of a well struck tee shot. In a nod to its legions of devoted fans worldwide, Tin Cup named this cup based on comments posted to its Facebook page.

"Some of the coolest product names have come directly from the growing community of golfers that always anticipate the designs we premiere each month," says Tin Cup President Cabell Fooshe. "Given the early outpouring of enthusiasm for Light it Up, we're expecting it to be in high demand for individual, outing, event and gift purchases."

Since being named "Best New Product" at the 2010 PGA Merchandise Show, Tin Cup has grown rapidly. Some of the company's newest creations were named a top pick by Golf Digest and GOLF.com at the 2013 PGA Merchandise Show and earned SCOREGolf's "Surprise Product of the Year" honor for 2012.

Available at hundreds of retailers nationwide and www.tin-cup.com, Tin Cup stencils ($19.95) boast a personalization process that takes seconds. Players simply place the template of their choice over a ball and trace it using an ultra-fine point permanent marker.

More than 130 unique styles are available, including emblems from all four major military branches, visualization/game improvement marks and college logos.
