Me thinks Kiefer has found a new ambition beyond the trays and boxes 8^)
I can envision a pro golfer carefully lining up a critical putt for birdie, the crowd is hushed. The golfer gently backswings and just before sending the ball on its way, the silence is broken by the whir of 50 Kiefer Fidgets spinning up like a diesels turbo charger (the ball ends up in the sand trap…)

A golfer will make a big swing after playing with one of these.

Don't think I have any spare space in the bag for it?

Thanks all and your comments are appreciated!
Just to inform you on the original purpose of the fidget /spinner was to try to calm autistic children and it seems to have worked . I have a grandson that is somewhat autistic and that is the main reason I am making these and to see what effect it has on him.
This thing is very quiet and a golfer would likely be calmed by this and not be distracted and miss his put
I agree fully that these should be banned from most class rooms just like any other item that is considered distracting or dangerous .

K how did you cut the golf ball? Here is a method fromYTube

- Desert_Woodworker
I cut the ball with a pull saw free hand but now I am working on a simple jig that will also help with the drilling .
As to the video I don't see much good in it, sorry .
