Local invention is helping the game of golf

TUCSON- It's a true story of doing what you love and following your dreams. In this case, it's the game of golf and one man's drive.

Growing up in Tucson, Aran Aleamoni discovered his love for golf while working as a caddy at La Paloma Country Club. And it didn't take him long to go from observing the game, to improving it.

It was during this time that he developed a real interest in the game of golf, according to Aleamoni.

"Everybody thinks of something everyday it's taking that next step that separates most of the people."

While out on the course, Aleamoni said he couldn't help but notice how the ball markers, things like coins or similar objects, often interfered with other player's putts.

This led him to the development of the ProMark Ballmarker. The tee shaped device uses eco-friendly baking soda to mark your spot. It easily brushes away after the putt and is refillable.

"I want to say about 99 percent of people that invent things don't take it to the next step and actually do something with that," Aleamoni said. "I have a product here that is in demand and that I can do something with."
