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.
If your dad does a fair share of traveling, whether business or personal, how about a golf bag travel cover? BagBoy offers a reasonably priced bag for $119.95 with unique hard top design to ultimately protect clubs. It has durable, smooth rolling, in-skate wheels and two oversized shoe/garment pockets. Made of premium all-weather 600D polyester, the travel cover fits 48" driver and up to a 10" golf cart bag.
For the most elite desires, starting at around $200, a range finder or GPS is the worthy gift of choice. These are extremely helpful to know exactly how far you are to the tee and if any hazards. The Leupold GX-2 Rangefinder is perfect for matching you personal striking distance to the slope of the shot and atmospheric conditions. It can even help you select what club to use!
But the most favored gift golf gift this holiday weekend is a golf bag cart. Revolutionary designs have changed how golfers transport their bags around the course. The Sun Mountain MicroCart Push Cart is loaded with distinct features including a new storage pouch for your small accessories. The patented four-wheel design means the cart has a low center of gravity for greater stability on the golf course terrain. The tires are solid an maintenance-free, because made of solid-foam. It has a padded valuables tray, ball marker, scorecard holder, drink holder, plus pencil, tee and ball holder. The most highly valued feature is that the cart folds and unfolds in just two easy motions.
So this Father's Day try to deliver the best golfing pieces to give him the best chance to perform, and win at his favorite game.
