Some of us simply can’t get enough golf in our lives. It’s all you think about. Golf is the cartilage that holds your work week and social life together. So, rather than just practicing on the the golf course, you slowly find yourself bringing it into other areas of your life.
Maybe it starts early in the morning with your cup of coffee. As soon as the cup is empty, you tip it over on its side to briefly practice your short game. Some enthusiasts like you tend to decorate their workspace with various golf souvenirs. Perhaps it’s a digital photo frame in the shape of a golf cart. Opportunely at your office desk, is a mini replica golf course with tiny magnetic golf balls, putting green and movable flag/pin. Or during your lunch hour, you may read “Ancestral Links: A Golf Obsession Spanning Generations,” a heartfelt golf-travel memoir by Sports Illustrated senior writer John Garrity.
Others may notice your passion for golf and thoughtfully purchase a den caddy gift. Ideal for virtually any special occasion – wedding, birthday, or housewarming, even congratulatory job promotion. This is an investment you may never think to purchase yourself but will obliged once in your possession. A den caddy is great for hiding your spare putters or used golf and practice balls. Whether you are taking a trip to the driving range, on-course demo days or just to place in your roomy office – near your putting cup of course – a den caddy can help keep your golf accessories nearby and in order. You don’t have to hull along a full-size tour bag. These smaller companions have various pockets and usually a conveniently large, side pocket for holding spare sleeves of golf balls for extra long sessions, putting or hitting. A den or mini caddy bag can also be a unique umbrella holder or magazine rack. Some folks even use their miniature golf bag as a waste basket! Few men put it in their living room right next to the sofa, which their wives will object upon because it doesn’t fit the house’s modern or traditional decor. So, you create a “man cave” in the den or basement to house all your sport mementos and golfing treasures.
Who else would place personalized or collected golf balls on the wall for display? An avid golf player like you of course. More importantly, if you’ve ever had a hole-in-one experience, you probably prize that lucky golf ball. For that reason, display it proudly for everyone who enters your home, so they can kindly ask about your special memorable moment.
In the garage or utility or mudroom, a golf organizer is ideal to store all your golf accessories. When in the backyard or near the garage, my dad will practice his golf swing while barbequing with his grill spatula. He usually transitions to an iron club halfway through the meat cooking. It’s a habit he has perfected so.
Maybe you really like sudoku, but have you tried Pardoku? The golf-themed version of the world’s most popular game brought to you by ProActive Sports. It has colored and numbered tees to make patterns easier to identify. It’s great for all ages.
And so we ask…where do you secretly practice your golf game?
