Treat the man who introduced you to the game, or with who you share this awesome game with. Whether it be dad, grandpa, or an uncle who’s like a father, show em’ that you appreciate them and everything they do. They don’t need another golf tie or a coffee mug that says “I’d rather be golfing.” How about actually giving him the gift of golf or something he will actually enjoy using the next time he plays? Here are some of the hottest gift items on golfhq.com for Father’s Day.
IZZO Swami GPS Watch $129 The IZZO Swami is the best golf gps watch for your money with all the bells and whistles of the more expensive models. There are no download or subscription fees and there are 38,000 world-wide golf courses on the unit right out of the box. Get the distance to the front, back, and middle of each green and see how far it is to reach hazards and doglegs; all on an easy to read screen. It is water-resistant and there’s even a mode to keep score.
YETI Hopper Flip 8 Cooler $199 The Yeti Hopper Flip 8 holds 8 lbs of ice and is the perfect addition to keep you traveling light during a day trip. The Flip 8 features all of the insulation power you’ve come to know from Yeti in a smaller, more convenient size. The cubed body design makes it easy to carry and store while the DryHide Shell provides the durability that protects the cooler from wind and water damage. The high-density fabric also protects against mildew, punctures, and UV rays. The liner of the cooler is constructed with FDA-approved food-grade material.
Straight Down Apparel $30 – $140 Straight Down is one of our finest premium apparel lines for golf and a relaxed lifestyle. The high-end performance fabrics are soft and breathable, making sure you feel as good as you look well after your round is done. Not to mention their cool mix of designs and patterns…
Tour Edge Wingman Putter $199 Every player needs a good wingman, and every golfer needs a reliable putter. Tour Edge now has some skin in the putter game to go along with their industry-leading woods and hybrids. The Wingman putter is 2 years of research and development in the making, and boats the same performance and high MOI of putters that cost twice as much. The carbon-fiber soleplate pushes all the weight to the sides and rear of the head, to produce a super-high MOI with extreme stability. The Lock-On Technology provides contrast alignment that allows the lie-angle to sit perfectly square at address. Interchangeable weights are present in the heel and toe, with 3 gram weights being the standard setup. The micro-grooves in the face insert produce a pure, soft feel and reduce skidding for a true roll.
Sun Mountain C-130 Cart Bag $249 The C-130 by Sun Mountain is not just the brand’s best selling bag, but one of the best selling bags in the game of golf. All of the features were designed with the riding cart in mind, starting with the ease of use handles and Smart Strap System. All 13 pockets are forward facing and accessible, including the magnetic velour-lined rangefinder pouch and the insulated cooler pocket. 14 individual club dividers and a separate putter compartment ensure there’s plenty of room and organization for each club. Matching rain hood is also included.
Wilson Staff Model Wedge $129 Give dad the gift of nostalgia and take him back to when he got his first set of Wilson Staff irons as a kid, or when he would sneak some swings with grandpa’s out in the yard. The Staff Model wedges by Wilson Staff are an extension of the clean and crisp look of their Staff model blades. The design was heavily collaborated on by Wilson Staff tour players, and feature an incredibly soft feel thanks to the forged 8620 carbon steel construction. The precision-milled face contains machine-engraved scorelines, which maximize spin and offer incredible greenside control.
Proactive Flagstick and Cup $20 Pops takes great pride in his yard, and he’ll feel even better about his lawn and his short game with his own flagstick and cup. It’s easy to install and now he doesn’t have to leave the house to work on chips and pitch shots.
I faired decent with last week’s picks after a long hiatus. Patrick Reed shot 4 rounds in the 60’s and finished T-7, Spieth notched a top-10 but failed to make a move on Sunday, and Billy Horschel tied for 38th. This week we move to another classic venue, Harbour Town on Hilton Head Island. Winner Bryson DeChambeau He has almost won here a few times, and this course is a thinking man’s course. Will contend Sunjae Im All Im does is contend, why not here? Sleeper Luke List What do you do when you can’t get into the field at Colonial? Go win on the Korn Ferry Tour. That’s what List did last week and he is feeling good and playing well.
Enjoy the game and eachother,
