As has become our tradition each season, we wanted to help out those shopping for the golfers in their life this time of year with a list of popular items that are sure to get a great reception. I assure you, ANY golf-related item is appreciated; on top of being a great present is assures the recipient that you might even approve of their sporting obsession…(or at least disguises your distaste for it temporarily!)
These items are in random order:
-Gift Certificate for Regripping
Whether they know it or not most golfers need new grips on their golf clubs once a year, depending how often they play and how they take care of their clubs. Visit their favorite golf shop and ask about getting a gift cecertificate for new grips. It is something golfers tend to put off so your thoughtful gift will get them on track.
-Adams Idea a7OS Irons
Have a golfer in your life who struggles with their iron play? If so this set of Adams irons might be the best addition ever to their golf game. Hybrids replace long irons and there is plenty of effective hitting area in the shorter irons. Plus…they look sharp!
-Bag Boy Mini GT Push Cart
Do you have limited space in your trunk but your golfing spouse insists on storing their golf push cart there? If so then the Mini GT is the solution. This full-featured cart folds down easily in a compact profile. The G-Force wheels make it roll smoothly across any terrain.
-Callaway X-Series Jaws Wedge
Just released into the marketplace the Jaws wedge is the latest design from Master Club Designer Roger Cleveland. Not only does it look impressive it will help your golfer stop their wedge shots close to the hole due to Mack Daddy grooves that provide plenty of bite.
-Personalized Golf Balls
Golfers always need balls and having ones with their name on them gives them something they can proudly show their buddies at that next outing. Titleist and Callaway Golf both offer holiday personalization programs. You’ll have to hurry on this one though, order too late and you won’t get them in time for gift giving on the big day!
-PING G15 Driver
Among the hottest new drivers on the market today, the PING G15 combines a traditional shape with explosive power. You can choose one of these drivers for your recipient but be sure that they can return to the pro or retailer that you bought it from so they can be fit properly for loft, model, shaft type and flex, etc.
-TaylorMade Stand Bag
As fashionable as it is functional the TaylorMade Corza stand bag was created expressly for lady golfers. With an integrated stand and very comfortable dual shoulder straps it is the ultimate solution for the walking female golfer in your life.
-Slotline SSI600 Putter
One the most popular putter brands in the world was reborn last year and the new crop of Slotline putters promises to push them back on to the scene in a big way. The 600ssi series feature 3 very traditionally shaped putters. These may be harder to find as they were just released but they will be worth the effort; any golfer will appreciate the feel they provide.
-FootJoy ICON Shoes
If you have a “traditionalist” in the house then run, do not walk, to your nearest FootJoy dealer. The ICON is quickly becoming the new standard for top grade golf shoes. Available in a variety of looks, there is sure to be one that matches the tastes of your golfer.
Last, but certainly no least, all golfers could use a little help with their golf games whether they think they need it or not. Many golfers are hesitant to go out and get help so arranging for a series of lessons might just be the best gift they ever receive. Phone the golf club where they regularly play to see what they offer. You can also talk to the people that golf with the gift recipient to find out what golf teacher they might recommend. Most golf professionals will offer some type of gift certificate or voucher.
