GolfBlogger’s Holiday Golf Gift Guide Part 1

Are you looking for the perfect holiday gift for the golfer in your life? Here are a few of the GolfBlogger’s favorite things from this year:

Big Max Aqua Sport 2 Golf Bag
Grade: A+
Teacher’s Comments: A great bag for both push- and power golf carts. Waterproof. Spacious.

The Big Max Aqua Sport 2 is a well-designed, waterproof bag from a company that has dominated the sales of trolleys and bags in Europe for some time. If your golfer’s bag is tattered and dirty, the Aqua Sport 2 is a fine choice for a replacement. It replaced my decade old Sun Mountain bag.

Srixon Z 585 Irons

Srixon Z585 Irons
Grade: A
Teachers’ Comments: Powerful. Easier to hit than I expected from a forged iron.

There’s an old saw about a person’s eyes being bigger than their stomach. That applies to me in golf. I love the look and feel of players’ forged irons, but don’t really have the game to effectively use them. The Srixon Z585 irons are an exception to that proverb. These are great feeling, great looking forged irons that for me, perform as well as a more forgiving game improvement set.

Cobra F-Max Superlite Fairway Wood

Cobra F-Max Superlite Three Wood
Grade: A
Teachers’ Comments: Finally, a fairway wood I can consistently hit. Long, with a strong draw bias. Worth a look if you’re in the market.

Cobra’s F-Max Superlite is aimed squarely at the slower swinging player desperately seeking to reach those par fives in two … or at least make that third shot a wedge. As the name suggests, it’s designed to be lighter than your usual fairway metal, offering more speed with the same effort.

Tommy Armour TA1 Irons

Tommy Armour TA1 Irons From Dick’s Sporting Goods

Grade: A
Teacher’s Comments: A solid set of irons at a fair price. Worthy of consideration by budget conscious mid- to high-handicappers.

Tommy Armour is a venerable name in golf clubs — the Silver Scot was in many bags — and this offering from Dick’s Sporting Goods is a worthy successor. Co-designed by Designworks, a subsidiary of BMW, the TA1 is a solid game improvement iron at a terrific price point.

Shot Scope V2 GPS Watch and Tags

Shotscope V2
Grade A
Teachers’ Comments: A great way to track your data for game improvement.

I don’t really keep score any more, but I still like to know how I’m doing. The Shotscope V2 makes it easy to collect data on my play. The small tags screw into the butt end of the grip, and send signals to the watch, tracking more than a hundred different statistics about your game. The watch also serves as a golf GPS.

Two Thumbs Daddy Putting Grip

Two Thumb Putter Grips
Grade: A
Teacher’s Comments: A different way of holding a putter that can make a difference in your putting.

The idea of the Two Thumb Putter grip is that it puts the hands in a parallel position. This keeps both shoulders and elbows parallel to the target line — an alignment that golfers might struggle to achieve in a more traditional grip with one hand higher than the other.

Lamkin Golf Grips

Grade: A
Teacher’s Comments: You can’t miss with any of these

All three models offer good resistance to twisting and slipping, while still being soft enough for me to play in my usual no-glove style.
