Father's Day golf gift guide (Part I)

There's too much good gear and golf equipment to cover in just one gift guide so we're breaking this year's Father's Day Eye on Golf gift guide into two parts.

Part I will run on Friday and focus on clubs and balls with a few other goodies thrown in. Part II will run at the beginning of next week and will cover everything we missed.

What are we waiting for? Let's get going (click on the price to go to the page where you can purchase each item).

This Cobra BiO Cell iron/hybrid set is fantastic. I absolutely love the hybrid portion and hit the 23.5 degree (they're adjustable) off the tee, in the fairway -- pretty much all the time. If you're looking for a cheaper, fun alternative to the big boy sets, this is a good one. ($599)

The TaylorMade Ghost Spide SI has been a tremendous addition to my game. I don't like light putters and this counterbalance edition has helped my stroke as well as the speed of my putts. If you're looking into counterbalance putters and want to save a little dough, this is the way to go. ($199)

I do love me some Nike gear and I've loved playing with the Nike RZN golf balls. Nike is offering free personalization for Father's Day right now, which is awesome, and this is a terrific product to have in the bag.

Also, Rory McIlroy just won the BMW PGA Championship with the RZN Blacks product. My ball of choice is the RZN Platinum but all four (black, white, red, and platinum are awesome). ($46)

I wrote a full review on the Mizuno JPX EZ irons but I've used them so much it warrants mentioning again. For a hack like me (20 handicap) they're pretty perfect. I'm in love with the short irons and even the long irons (which I struggle with normally) are easy to hit. Great product from a great iron-maker. ($699)

I could tell you about Game Golf but I'll let this video do it for me.

Game Golf is truly one of the unique analytics products on the market and is as clean and professionally-made as they come. It's also USGA approved. ($249)

I'm sort of a Peter Millar homer but these Solid Stretch Jersey shirts are pretty great. Peter Millar always has great colors and patterns and conveys that traditional look dad will love. ($85)

Want some fancy-looking kicks that are comfortable and play whether you're kicking with your buddies or in a high-end business game? The Ashworth Encinitas line is awesome. My wife gets annoyed with a lot of the gear I have around the house but when I got these she said "wow, those look great." ($199)

I rarely wear a non-Kentwool sock when I tee it up and these KW Pro Light socks are the latest in a long line of awesome products from Kentwool. They aren't my favorite Kentwools (these USA-themed ones are) but at the price, they're more than worth it. ($21)

5

The TaylorMade Tour Preferred wedge went in my bag immediately after I tried it out. It has a thick head and is heavy enough that I don't feel like I'm going to pull off of every chip. One of my favorite clubs in my bag. ($129)

Happy shopping!
