Engraving for inspiration

With the world’s most famous golf tournament fast approaching, the Masters, the highest ranked players are busy finalising their preparation for the biggest sporting stage of their careers.

For some, though, spending time on the driving range is not enough, and they’re looking for what can give them an added edge beyond their swing technique.

Renowned for being a sport for the mind as much for the body, one golfer has taken particular preparation… for which Engravers Guild entirely approves.

Bernd Wiesberger, the Austrian golfer, has had the initials of past Masters champions engraved onto the head of his wedge club to give him that extra inspiration.

As well as the familiar suspects of of Tiger Woods (TW) and Phil Mickelson (PM), we’re most pleased to see our best golfing export referenced on the club, Nick Faldo (NF).

In the hope that an engraving will lift his mental state of mind, we here at Engravers Guild thought we would also do our own bit for the players, noting our favourite golfing quotes:

1 “Success in golf depends less on strength of body than upon strength of mind.” (Arnold Palmer)

2 “The mind is your greatest weapon, it’s the greatest club in your bag.” (Steve Elkington)

3 “Competitive golf is played mainly on a five and a half inch course… the space between your ears.” (Bobby Jones)

Should any of the players want any of these famous captions inscribed upon their clubs, then don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.

In the meantime, for those of us not lucky enough to be gracing the greens of Augusta any time soon, there is still always a place for more inspiration in life elsewhere.

Some of the best engravings we have made are the ones that cause the recipient to think and be mindful of. Whether that’s standing at the altar, about to take an exam, or retiring from a career.

Should these moments need to be marked in any way, then do remember there are personalised cufflinks, engraved necklaces and other personalised gifts which always do the job well.
