Rivas, an avid golfer and insurance broker based in Los Angeles, CA, conceived of a product that would easily keep a ball marker right where he needed it while playing-namely, at his fingertips. Rivas is a leftie, and saw a need for a magnet patch that you can place anywhere on your hat, rather than using the mainly right-sided, sewn-in cap magnets on the market.
