We looked at Part I of this gift guide at the end of last week and now we'll look at Part II of our Father's Day golf gift guide.
As an aside, let me say it's a testament to a lot of companies putting out outstanding golf equipment that this guide has spilled over into two parts.
What are we waiting for? Let's get going (click on the price to go to the page where you can purchase each item).
|Product||Stars (out of 5)||Analysis|
This State Traditions belt is one of my favorite new additions to my golfing wardrobe. Sometimes it's difficult to show off the school colors in a way that doesn't disgust your playing partners but this gear is subtle and classy. I like. ($55)
The Bushnell X7 Jolt Rangefinder is a must have if you can afford it. I did a full review here but wanted to mention it again because I use it so often. My favorite part of the X7? How quickly you can get a good yardage. The last thing I want to do is hold up the group behind me. ($499)
Here's the coolest part of the Cobra Bio Cell+ driver -- you can design your own. I made mine orange and black for my Oklahoma State Cowboys with a stiff shaft and tacky Golf Pride grip and I love it.
The head is adjustable and the power is immense. A really, really cool product that dad will absolutely love. ($449)
If you want a value pick for pops the Bubba Watson Birdie Box is my choice. For $75 you can get an Oakley shirt, a PING visor, a sleeve of ProV1s and a pair of Kentwool socks. All great but I love the Kentwools the most. (Starts at $75)
The TaylorMade SLDR driver is a tremendous fit for amateur golfers. I'm in on TaylorMade's "loft up" theory and this is the drive I have in my bag at the moment.
Also, this is cool:
You can get a SLDR for a pretty fair price. ($399)
These Nike Lunar Control golf shoes are definitely in my rotation. They're light and comfortable and yet provide enough leverage with the ground that you can still fire away with your longer clubs. A great shoe. ($160)
The Puma Faas Lite 2.0 kicks are great for many reasons, not the least of which is that you can wear them almost anywhere. I'm actually standing at my standing desk and typing this review right now.
I wear them on the course but I also wear them at my house and I absolutely love them. Possibly the best bang for your buck on this entire list. ($90)
