A Golfer’s Gift Guide We’re Swingers Too

[01/12/15] 

It’s almost the festive season, which means you still have time to indulge the passion of your closest male mates, from friends to fathers, with these state-of-the-art additions to their golf ensemble.

 


 

True golfers will play in any kind of weather but it doesn’t hurt to be prepared. The new Lunar Bandon 3 golf shoe features a weatherproof upper positioned over an outsole stacked with six spikes for traction and support on life’s slippery surfaces. The boot’s seam-sealed shroud – with its rather fetching camo print - is designed to lock out moisture, while a premium weatherproof toe cap, made of engineered synthetic leather, pays homage to the sport’s aesthetic heritage

Sleek, eye-catching and near-invisible on the fairways, the new TaylorMade M1 driver is the brand’s first departure from all-metal crowns. A combination of titanium at the tip and carbon fibre at the rear offer both durability and light-weight performance. What’s more Taylormade has worked on that hollow thud you get with carbon fibre heads, and promise a suitably crisp chorus when you hit the sweet spot in style. US$499; taylormadegolf.com

For precision putting you can’t go past the new Odyssey Works Tank Cruiser 2 – Ball Fang Putter, the meanest addition to the brand’s Odyssey Works collection. Not only does it win the award for the best name for a golf club, but it also takes Callaway’s revolutionary Versa alignment and adjustable counterbalance and marries them in tour proven head shape models that offers smooth, pendulum putts in all conditions. US$249.99; odysseygolf.com

Available in both white and optic yellow, the new Titleist DT TruSoft is the softest DT ball created by the legendary golf brand, and is the result of over two years of extensive research and development (great job if you can get it!). Guaranteed to be as soft as a pillow after your first cage fight, the boffins at Titleist promise no reduction in distance thanks to innovations in both compression core and cover technology. Just when you thought we’d reached golf ball perfection! US$21.99/doz; titleist.com

For those players who don’t have a knack for guessing distances, the new Halo Xray Ballistix 6X Laser Rangefinder from Wildgame Innovations is accurate to within one yard. Made to last thanks to a rugged weather-resistant construction, the rangefinder uses AITM angle intelligence to account for slopes and wayward caddies while the 6X magnification gives you a chance to get a good look at your target – or anything else you might fancy on the course – with sharp, crisp imagery.US$108; Shop Here
