Within the holiday season upon us I thought it might be imperative to assemble a small wish list. Golfers always appreciate a gift related to the sport – and if it is something off this list they will be really excited!!
The Gift Certificate
As cold as it may seem the universal gift is the gift certificate. Find out which is your golfers favourite shop and get it from there. This way they can pick up exactly what they want and there will be no issues with sizes or getting the club that fits properly. Consider making the certificate for an item like a Golf Lesson or a Launch Monitor Session.
TaylorMade R7 Draw Driver
Ever hear the golfer of the house complaining about a nagging slice? It is a very common problem for many golfers so TaylorMade decided to address this with their new series of Draw-Biased clubs. The driver is available in men’s and ladies models and each feature a large 460cc club head and the innovative Fujikura RE*AX Graphite shaft. www.taylormadegolf.com
Scotty Cameron Putter
Putters are special things to many golfers and one of the most sought after brands is Titleist’s Scotty Cameron Series. Popular on the professional tours, the wide range of models feature sleek designs constructed with care and precision using only the best materials. The latest model is the Detour with the Circa ’62 and Studio Style models still very popular. www.scottycameron.com
Mizuno Mp-67 Iron
Shiny new irons never looked better than when they come in a box under the tree. Premium brand Mizuno (now in business 100 years) takes craftsmanship seriously and their MP-67 irons would be welcomed by any better player. These irons blend some of the most popular features of Mizuno’s much heralded iron line-up. A version of 1025E mild carbon steel was used to craft the iron heads. www.mizunocda.com
Ecco Golf Shoes
Any avid golf will tell you that having comfortable golf shoes is a big priority. It always helps to have the latest technology supporting you as you play – and a little style never hurts as well. Shoes by ECCO Golf, for both men and women, meet all those standards. Waterproof leather uppers, strong warranties, and a wide range of models to suit a variety of tastes make them an excellent gift choice.www.eccogolf.com
Yes, it is a short list but maybe it will give you a little guidance. For best results, visit the gift recipients’ favourite shop and talk to the staff. You would be surprised how often they remember the items your recipient covets. If not they can likely steer you in the direction of the items that every golfer want this holiday season!
