Like Jack Nicklaus before him, Tiger seems always to be at his best at Augusta National, the home of The Masters. For even the casual fan, there’s just something about the year’s first Major that heightens interest in the game.

Father’s Day will be here before you know it. But finding the perfect gift can be a little daunting. If your dad is a golfer and has a passion for the course, we are here to help. There is no better time than Father’s Day to give your Dad a memorable gift for the sport he loves. Plus, with the 111th US Open at Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, Maryland there is plenty of golf inspiration and excitement to last into the holiday weekend. First of all, fashion on the course is a must! Color coordination is everywhere this year. If your dad is like my own, his wardrobe may be a few decades or months behind the trend. Forget about the oversized mercerized cotton polo and double-pleated khakis, dressing down for golf is no longer the passable attire. The technology available in most fabrics today allows golfers to play to their full swing potential without constraint and stay cool longer in breathable, more comfortable clothing. Just be sure to review the sizing guides provided, because each vendor is different and some styles nowadays are pre-shrunk for instant wear and gratification. Puma Golf Apparel is a great resource for new fresh colors. They don't have to be bright effeminate colors like pink or orange. But the more color the better. Get your dad out of his comfort zone and try a little something new, slightly bold that you would like to wear. Check out professional golfers' outfit scripts like Rickie Fowler this weekend at the 2011 US Open. He has a colorful flare for daring fashion statements but for fun, more stylish than the average player. In Adidas Golf Apparel, belts, hats and other small clothing accessories are very popular. The good news about the Trophy 2.0 Belt, you can easily change your Adidas buckle to a multitude of colors available. Don't just take our word for it, read what others had to say about 'em too. This weekend Nike is offering a limited edition golf shoe for the US Open. The Nike Lunar Control Golf Shoes are something special indeed, and DGW has all the original styles in stock. They deliver the optimal combination of stability and comfort in the lightest-weight performance shoe. The cushioning inside, called Lunarlon, features a soft, resilient foam core encased in the heel of the shoe to prevent fatigue on your feet after walking five or six miles of 18 holes. Did you know this shoe was developed with insights from Nike Golf athlete Paul Casey? In addition, check out Charl Schwartzel's outfit in Nike Apparel. We can wish him the best as he's going for his second major tournament win this weekend.

As more people walk with push carts they keep asking me for recommendations, so I decided to play a few rounds and come up with a great push cart you should use this season. Keep reading to learn about my choice, the Golf Digest Gold Medal winning Trekker Caddy TC3 Freestyle Push Cart. Trekker Caddy TC3 Freestyle Push Cart After playing a few rounds with different push carts I decided on a newcomer, the Trekker Caddy TC3 Freestyle Push Cart. Unlike almost all other push carts, the TC3 sits very low to the ground and has an adjustable handle. While this may not sound like a big deal, the flat-bottom frame distributes weight evenly and keeps the cart's center of gravity much lower than other carts. The result is a much stabler and easier to push cart. The adjustable handle means you can actually be comfortable pushing instead of reaching up or down. After all, the cart should accommodate you, right? A couple other nice features include the unit's ability to fold into a tight little package, smaller than comparable carts. Plus you don't have to remove wheels! The Trekker Caddy TC3 has a brake system with a push-button release conveniently located at the top of the handle, right in the middle. Anybody who's had to bend down and search for a brake release on a cart frame knows the benefit of being able to flip a switch their thumb to get rolling again! The wheels are injection molded so they're sturdy, quiet and lightweight, and the ball bearings they rotate on are sealed -- so bad weather and nasty course conditions won't ruin your ride. Trekker Caddy TC3 Benefits Push design promotes upright walking posture and utilizes your body weight and forward momentum T-shaped low frame produces a low center of gravity for better balance and distributes the bag's weight evenly for easier pushing and greater stability Hollow-tube aircraft aluminum frame is rigid yet lightweight Locking, adjustable handle for comfortable use regardless of golfer height 1-piece wheels and sealed bearings for durable, quiet operation Push-button brake release located on handle The 2010 golf season is already getting into full swing in parts of the country, and before too long the links will be packed with golfers eager to get back into the swing of things. Don't be left behind with old gear that hurts your scores! Walking with a push cart allows you to see the course up close and personal, to feel the slopes and see the spots that will hurt or help -- not to mention give you a good workout (you don't get warm, loose muscles by riding a powered cart!). Plus, walking gives you time to analyze your performance, walk off frustrations and spend time talking with friends. The Trekker Caddy TC3 Push Cart is a great choice for any golfer looking for a foldable, lightweight push cart that offers a stable, cushy ride. So the next time you head out opt for the TC3 Push Cart instead of those loud, expensive powered carts. You'll be glad you went with Trekker Caddy. I am.
