I jumped on to Tee It Up with Kevin Haime on TSN 1200 (Ottawa) on Saturday morning. Included in the discussion were five gift suggestions for the holiday season.
Here is that list if you were listening and didn’t get them written down, including links to how you can find more about them.
Tin Cup Stencils
A perfect stocking item, these handy stencils allow the golfer to put their own personal flare on their golf ball markings. There are a growing number of designs and the company even sells gift sets with stencils and markers included.
A simple item but it’s easy to get something that suits the personality of the golfer you are gifting it to.
Bushnell Laser Rangefinder
This continues to be a “hot” item for all golfers. While a GPS watch might be fun, the laser rangefinder can provide correct yardages to any point in your line of site. Great for playing rounds of golf (most tournaments allow them) and even better for practice when you are dialling in the precise distance you hit each club.
You know the drill. You’ve got a car full of golf stuff lying all over the place. Shoes in one spot, golf balls rolling under the seat, and tees in every cup holder.
Better get it together.
There’s no easier than with a golf trunk locker.
They are now made by a variety of companies but just about any one will do.
They provide one simple place to keep all your golf gear so you know when it is when you really need it.
And it’ll save that golf ball from rolling under the brake pedal at the most inappropriate time.
Every golfer needs a great belt…or two. The NexBelt is a sweet choice. Coming in a variety of models, these belts have a no hole design so golfers need not worry about weight fluctuations resulting in useless strings of leather abandoned n the floor of their closet.
The NexBelt even offers a “golf” model with a belt buckle that secretly hides a ball marker. You’ll also find that they offer Canadian buckle designs.
Book: An American Caddie In St. Andrews
Golfers love books and I’ve yet to hear a bad review of this one. American Oliver Horovitz worked his way through university in St. Andrews, Scotland as a caddy at the Old Course. He still returns to work there long after he has become a filmmaker. His tale is one of both personal insight of the workings of St. Andrews, some collegial fun, and a touching tribute to a man who connected him to the town.
