New Gadget Perfect For Father's Day Gift

The PGA gives top honours to a Canadian invention that finds lost golf balls. Attention: Business/Financial Editor, Lifestyle Editor, Photo Editor, Sports Editor, Tech/Telecomm Editor TORONTO, ONT.--(CCNMatthews - May 10, 2005) - Editors Note: A photo for this release will be available on the Canadian Press picture network via PR Direct.

Visiball Golf Ball Finders lowers scores, saves money and speeds up the game.

The product which is based on physics, is the result of 4 years of research and development.

Visiball are a cool looking pair of sunglasses and although they do have U.V. protection, that's where the similarity ends.

When you put on a pair of Visiball glasses, everything will turn blue. Special pigments in the lenses block out all colours except the colour white. Anything white will "glow", particularly the cover of a white golf ball. It doesn't matter what brand of golf ball. If it's white, it will glow making it much easier to find.

Jeff Keating of Barrie, Ontario calls them "an amazing invention". Susan Loveridge of Ft. McMurray Alberta says "My hubby loves them and so does my Dad". Stuart Ashman of Toronto said "The first day my course opened, I found 6 golf balls. The glasses are great!"

It's no wonder that Visiball Golf Ball Finders were named "Best New Product" for 2005 at the PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando, Florida. It's the first time a Canadian golf invention has ever won this prestigious award.

The company is owned and operated by Linda Penhale and Marilyn Costello both of whom are seniors who in 2003, risked their retirement savings to purchase the Canadian rights to the product from it's New Brunswick inventors.

The two women are avid golfers and firmly believed that eye-glasses that could find lost golf balls would be a huge benefit to everyone connected with the game of golf not only in Canada, but world-wide.

They were right, the company is hugely successful in a male-dominated industry and sales of Visiball Golf Ball Finders has exceeded projections beyond anyone's expectations.

The two women were named "Canadian Entrepreneurs of the Month" last summer by Profit Magazine.

Visiball Golf Ball Finders retails for under $40.00 and are available in stores across Canada, just in time for Father's Day.
