11 Father's Day Golf Gift Ideas.
Is there anything better than seeing someone’s face light up when you give them the perfect gift? And for many, such an experience is made even better when it comes to buying a gift for a parent, who usually does more giving than receiving. This Father’s Day, TGW wants to make sure that you give Dad a gift that will not only make his face light up but also help him have more fun on the golf course. Here are some great gift ideas that we’re confident will accomplish both goals.
TECHNOLOGY / ELECTRONICS
Garmin Approach X40 GPS Golf Band
Garmin Approach X40 GPS Golf Band: What makes the Approach X40 such a great gift is the immense functionality it offers. As a GPS watch, the X40 comes preloaded with more than 40,000 courses, and it provides all of the information that any golfer needs to play better golf, including stat-tracking capability. But what makes this device so unique is that it also offers significant fitness tracking options as well, including steps taken, heart rate, and calories burned. Additionally, the X40 is sleek and comfortable, and it offers a battery life of up to 10 hours in GPS mode and five days in watch mode
TGW Phoenix Slope Rangefinder
TGW Phoenix Slope Rangefinder: There are plenty of golfers out there who believe that they don’t need a golf rangefinder. But they only believe that because they’ve probably never owned one. If the father you’re shopping for doesn’t have a laser rangefinder, you can’t miss by getting him one as a gift. And the TGW Phoenix Slope Rangefinder is a great option both in terms of its capability and value. It’s compact and easy to operate, it retrieves yardages quickly and accurately, and most importantly it offers valuable slope functionality that can be easily turned on or off as needed.
SHOES & APPAREL
FootJoy Mens Hydrolite Short Sleeve Rain Shirt
FootJoy HydroLite Rain Shirt: FootJoy released its first short sleeve rain shirt roughly 20 years ago. Since that time, it has been the company’s top selling rainwear item on an annual basis, including the most recent HydroLite model. The reasons for that success are many. First and foremost, this rain shirt is 100 percent waterproof and will keep a golfer dry on a rainy day. But equally important is that the HydroLite rain shirt was designed specifically for golf, which means players can expect incredible range of motion as they swing. Additionally, it functions as a great wind shirt that can be used to layer on colder days.
adidas Ultimate 365 Pants and Shorts at the 2017 PGA Show
adidas Ultimate 365 Golf Shorts: When people think about combining golf and technology they usually think about what’s being done with golf clubs. That said, golf apparel is getting more technologically advanced with each passing year. A great example would be what adidas has done with its incredibly popular Ultimate 365 line of golf shorts. These are shorts that utilize fabrics that stretch and move with a player to offer exceptional mobility during the golf swing, while also offering advanced moisture wicking to keep a golfer cool on the hottest of days. Does that not sound like a great gift for your Dad?

FootJoy MyJoys Custom Shoes: A pair of custom MyJoys golf shoes from FootJoy might be one of the coolest golf gifts you could ever give someone, as basically there’s nothing you can’t do. You pick the style, with there being five to choose from, and then you design the shoes in terms of their color patterns, logos, initials, etc. As a Father’s Day gift, you can have the shoes patterned with the colors and/or logos of your Dad’s alma mater or his favorite professional sports team. Or you could simply opt for his favorite colors and initials. The possibilities are endless, but as a gift this is sure to score high marks.
