2021 Holiday Golf Gift Guide

The #1 gift in golf for the last 20 years has been a box of Titleist Pro V1 golf balls. Every player would be thrilled to receive them, because most won’t pay the $50 to treat themselves. But golf balls are an extremely boring gift and not very original. This year, think outside the box a bit. And no, that golf tie or the spike wrench-divot tool-bottle opener-scrub brush swiss army knife golf tool is not original. I’ve compiled a list of some of the coolest and best gifts for the golfer to fit any budget.

Rapsodo Mobile Launch Monitor The Rapsodo turns your smartphone into the ultimate personal launch monitor. It can be used indoors or out, and tracks data such as ball speed, launch angle, distance, smash factor, and dispersion. You can also record your swing and interact with the game’s best instructors for a virtual lesson right on your phone. My Golf Spy rated the Rapsodo the best MLM (mobile launch monitor) on the market. Price: $499.99 Available at GolfHQ.com

Theragun Mini Therabody has changed the game when it comes to ridding yourself of daily aches and pains and living your best life. I have the Elite model and it is a life saver. It’s your own personal masseuse/chiropractor. The Mini made the list because it packs a punch in a small and quiet package that travels easy in your duffle or golf bag. It features 3 speeds with 1750, 2100, and 2400 percussions per minute and a battery life of 150 minutes. Price: $199.99 Theragun Mini

Cigar Minder Yes there is a $10 item on this list and it’s the ultimate stocking stuffer. The Cigar Minder clips right on the windshield frame of any riding golf cart and securely holds your cigar in place during the round. No more setting your favorite stogie on the ground or the nasty floor of the cart only to forget about it and drive away. It’s always in the same spot waiting for your next puff. The Cigar Minder is the item you didn’t know existed but can’t believe you never thought of it. Price: $9.99 Cigar Minder Clip

Mizuno ST-Z & ST-X Driver The best selling driver of 2021 should be on everyone’s list. Always known for the game’s finest forged irons, Mizuno took a nice bite of the driver market in 2021 with their ST series. The Z features a neutral center of gravity located deep in the back of the crown, while the X model is the draw bias entry for players who struggle with an open club face. Both models are constructed from SAT2041 Beta titanium, which is 17% stronger and 8% more flexible than commercial grade ti commonly used in other clubs. This leads to an increase ball speed and an overall better feel and sound. Take advantage of the new price as the ST drivers are now $100 off. Price:$299 ST-Z Driver ST-X Driver
