Golf score counters can help players keep track of their game. Some players, however, do not want to make it obvious that they need this type of help. You can disguise a golf score counter as an attractive bracelet. All you need are beads of different colours, leather cord and a clasp.
Use a measuring tape to find the circumference of your wrist then add about 2 inches to this measurement. Cut two strands of leather cord equal to this measurement. For instance, if the circumference of your wrist is 7 inches, then each strand should be 9 inches long.
Hold the cords together at one end and thread them through the eye of a beading needle. String 10 beads onto both cords. Remove the needle.
Apply glue to one end of the cord and push it into the cord coil. Use the flat-nose pliers to crimp the first coil on the cord coil down onto the leather cord to secure it. Repeat this for the other end. Wait for the glue to dry completely.
Grip the jump ring with the flat-nose pliers. Use another pair of flat-nose pliers to grip one end of the jump ring and pull the ring open. Slide the jump ring through the loop at the end of one cord coil and slide the loop on the lobster clasp onto the jump ring. Use the pliers to pull the end of the jump ring back into its original position to complete the bracelet.
Use the bracelet to score one hole at a time. Before you play each hole, push all of the beads to one end of the bracelet. Slide a bead to the other end of the bracelet after every shot. At the end of the hole, use the beads you slid up to tally your score. Each bead, like each stroke, is one point. Write this number down to keep track of your progress in the game.
