The WISP Steadily Setting a Higher Standard for Golfer Etiquette

This New Tool Is Reinforcing the Basic Concept of Proper Etiquette Many Golfers Have Forgotten

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - Aug 11, 2011) - After a day on the green many golfers have found themselves asking the same thing -- "What's happened to etiquette in the game of golf?" Until recently, a tradition of showing consideration to others on the course has held true. And with courses encouraging speed of play, players often ignore some of the courtesies that can help improve the enjoyment of rounds and even overall scores.

One of the most common complaints on the green directly impacting playability is green upkeep. When golfers fail to leave the green as they found it, it affects all players. With a renewed commitment to player etiquette, golfers can bring enjoyment and a higher level of integrity back to the game. Players and golf courses around the nation are finding this can be achieved with one convenient tool -- The WISP.

The WISP is a simple tool that allows players to clear sand from the putting green with a quick and easy sifting motion. It helps golfers become more aware of such common courtesies as tapping their shoes after they leave the sand trap and before entering the putting surface. As creator Eben Dobson explains, "I developed The WISP for one reason and that is to get the everyday player conditioned to restore the greens to their original condition before they leave the green. When players begin to use The WISP, we all win."

The WISP is the first of its kind, as it reinforces a sense of community and etiquette on the green through shared greenskeeping efforts. With the ability to improve green quality not only for a player's own shots, but for players after them, The WISP reinforces the basic concept of proper etiquette many golfers have forgotten.
