#1 Best Golf Gift for Father’s Day – Golf Balls
Golf balls are something every Dad needs, obviously you can’t play golf without them and it’s something that they will surely use at some point even if they already have a stockpile of golf balls. If you want to truly impress Dad the #1 ball in golf and the most widely used golf balls on tour are the Titleist Pro V1 Golf Balls and Titleist Pro V1x Golf Balls. These are especially great golf balls if your Dad or Grandpa or any Father in your family are very avid golfers that play pretty well. If you’re wondering what the difference between the two are, the easiest way to choose the best one is by the age and if you know if they swing really hard at the ball that helps as well. The Titleist Pro V1 is best for most average swing speed golfers, so for most golfers up in age, this ball works best. The Pro V1x is faster swinging golfers, so usually younger golfers that play well and often. The Callaway Chrome Soft Golf Balls are also extremely popular for avid golfers and will make a great gift as well. They’re also not quite as expensive as the Pro V1.
You don’t have to break the bank with the best ball in golf though. There are also many mid-range priced golf balls that are very good and you can often find 2 for deals on them, such as the Bridgestone e6 golf balls and the Wilson Duo Golf Balls. These are for golfers of many skill levels from a 5-8 handicap all the way up to a 25 handicap. If Dad only plays Titleist you can take a look at the Titleist NXT Tour Golf Balls or the Titleist Velocity Golf Balls.
Lastly, if Dad only play a few times a year or if you’re buying for Grandpa (lower swing speed) the Titleist TruSoft Golf Balls are fantastic. You can also look at the Srixon Soft Feel 24 pack of golf balls or once again the Wilson Duo Golf Balls where you currently also get 2 dozen for only $30.

#3 Best Golf Gift for Father’s Day – Golf Shoes
Golf Shoes make an excellent gift and just like golf shirts, golfers can never have enough golf shoes for every type of course and conditions. Our Men’s Spikeless Golf Shoes are very popular as you can wear them not just on the course but off the course as well. Some golfers will wear these shoes to dinner or even to the office. The FootJoy Versaluxe Golf Shoes are perfect for the golfer that plays golf and wants golf shoes he can wear right into the clubhouse without having to change his shoes. We also carry dress shoes that aren’t as much meant for playing but just to wear to dinner at the country club or with a nice pair of dress slacks. If that’s what you think Dad needs check out our FootJoy Professional Spikeless Golf Shoes.
If Dad plays a lot of golf in all types of weather you’ll definitely want something waterproof so make sure you check the description of each shoe. Most golf shoes are waterproof but there are some lower-end golf shoes that are synthetic leather or have a mesh upper that may not be waterproof. If you’re looking for the best we recommend checking out the FootJoy DNA 2.0 Golf Shoes, which just dropped in price, and are FootJoy’s top-of-the-line golf shoe. The FootJoy FreeStyle Golf Shoes also just dropped in price as well and make another excellent option. If you already know Dad prefers Adidas Shoes we recommend the Adidas Tour360 Boost Golf Shoes and the Adidas Powerband BOA Boost Golf Shoes.
Now if you don’t want to break the bank because you know Dad doesn’t play a ton of golf, don’t worry there are many discount golf shoes out there for you. Take a look at the Closeout FootJoy SuperLites Golf Shoes or the FootJoy Contour Golf Shoes which can currently be had for around $60. Both still provide a waterproof warranty, the Contour line, even comes with a 2 year waterproof warranty, which is the same warranty all of the higher end golf shoes carry. There is nothing wrong with buying Dad a pair of cheap golf shoes since there are so many good closeout options out there for you.
One last thing to note, if you can sneak out and check the size of the shoes your Dad currently wears that helps a ton. If not it’s good to know that FootJoy shoes typically run a half size larger than Adidas Golf Shoes. So if Dad wears a 10 in an Adidas Shoe you should probably get him a 9.5 in a FootJoy shoe.

They also make a great add-on golf gift since they run anywhere from the $7 range to the $25 range.
