2016 Father's Day Gift Guide Print

 

By Jason Bruno

 

Sunday June 19th is Father's Day this year, so as usual we picked out some of our favorite items

your Dad might enjoy - either to look his best, or play his best. If you are a golfing Dad, I hope

you get one of these gifts . . . Happy Father's Day!

 

A man with Happy feet is usually a happy man - especially on the links. Puma's new Ignite Spikeless

Sport is built for cool style, serious traction and light weight. Worn on Tour by Cobra/Puma's own

Bryson DeChambeau who says "These are the most comfortable shoes I've ever worn".

 

 

 

Ignite Spikeless Sport available in Gray, Blue and Black $140. For more info: cobrapumagolf.com

 

 

 

 

A few years back Zepp technology took the world of golf by storm with their personal swing

device technology. The next generation of the Zepp Golf - called appropriately Zepp Golf2,

features a smart coach training system. Just attach the sensor to your glove and sync with

your Apple/Android device and you're ready to get started. After just a few swings the Zepp2

in collaboration with the Zepp smartphone app, you will receive instant information to

evaluate the area where you can improve. Zepp's training programs are illustrated by

Keegan Bradley, Michelle Wie, Brendan Steele and swing coach Rick Smith - are be tailored

to your individual swing.

 

 

 

 

 


Zepp2 is my personal go to when I need to check swingplane, tempo, swingspeed,

backswing etc. It's your best way to coach yourself in between lessons from your

PGA Professional. Zepp2 easily attaches to any golf glove - available at BestBuy,

PGA Superstore, Dick's Sporting Goods, GolfGalaxy or www.zepp.com - $149

 

 

 

 

 

Does Dad need a new Laser Rangefinder, but the price has him walking off yardages or

using the inferior cell phone gps? Precision Pro's new Nexus rangefinder is great value and

is packed with features . . .

 

 

 

Precision Pro Nexus

is packed with all of

the essentials to

help you play a

more enjoyable and

efficient round

of golf.

 

 

 

 

 

The Nexus fits perfectly in one hand, and it's non slip cover provides ease of

use. During our review on the course, we found that our test unit measured

yardages quickly and within a yard of the two leading industry brands . . .

and at a fraction of the cost. $199 - www.precisionprogolf.com

 

 

 

 

 

 

I've long said that the

Highland is the best golf

pant in the industry. New

for this year, Maide Golf

has added the new

Lightweight Highland with

all of the features of

the original. It's a great

option for those warmer

days where a full length

pant is still the right choice.

The new Lightweight

Highland features:


M-Flex stretch panels for

range of motion, inner

gel waist liner to keep you

from looking disheveled

while in action, sweat tech

back pocket keeps your

scorecard dry while walking

the links and all while being

water resistant.

The roll-in BAGBUDDY is an item like no other. Shag bags are heavy and don't pick up your golf

balls. Shag tubes pick up golf balls but only hold about 20 balls. The roll-in BAGBUDDY does both.

 

 

 

The Pro model (left) holds approx. 75 golf balls and eliminates the need for those big

clumsy pvc devices used at nearly every driving range or country club shortgame area

to gather up balls into a pile - and still doesn't pick them up. The standard model holds

about 40 golf balls. To see this device work is really something, also unlike those other

devices, the BAGBUDDY handle fits right into your golfbag easily. The Roll-in website will

launch on June 17th - www.rollingolf.com

 

 

 

 

 

Our friends at August Covers created this leather driver cover of the highest order for me. It's

by far my favorite accessory in the bag. Customize your own or buy one from their collection.

I've spotted players on tour with some of Drew Garrett's awesome covers. Check out the website

and all of the choices at: www.Augustcovers.com

 

 

 

 

 

GolfBuddy introduces the Voice2. The second generation of the #1 selling voice gps in the

industry now has increased battery life and is water resistant. For those Dads who don't want

to bother with a laser rangefinder or high tech phone app, the GolfBuddy2 is quite simply the

easiest to use golf gps device in the world. $99 - www.golfbuddyglobal.com

 


 

 

 

When I'm out covering the PGA Tour representing GolfLife.com, I wear Callaway apparel. Many

folks weren't aware that Callaway has their own division of sportswear, well they do, and it's

every bit as impressive as their golf equipment line. Golf slacks, polos, belts and shoes are

all part of their extensive line of fine golf wear. Dad can probably use an upgrade to his threads

this Father's Day. Polos shown $39-61 - http://m.callawayapparel.com
