Part 1 of our annual holiday gift guide
The Thanksgiving Holiday means only one thing – it’s time to begin shopping for the holiday season and checking out all the cool, new golf apparel and gadgets available.
We’re here to help. Here’s part one of the annual Alabama Golf News holiday gift guide:
TRUE Linkswear FS-01
Walking golf shoe brand TRUE linkswear is introducing its Future Staples line this fall with the debut of the FS-01. Featuring a timeless, minimalist style with what the company describes as “hidden technology,” the FS-01 is hitting the ground running with six colorways in men’s sizes 7-15 and women’s 5.5-12. TRUE’s Future Staples line is inspired by classic sneaker looks infused with the company’s legendary technology. If you need a pair of TRUEs ASAP, the Original 1.2s are optimized for fall golf – super supportive and fully waterproof.
MSRP: $175 (FS-01), $170 (Original 1.2)
RADMOR Higgins Bobrad Loop Terry Hoodie
Fall is prime golf hoodie season, and no brand does hoodies quite like Seattle-based RADMOR Golf.
The Higgins Bobrad Loop Terry Hoodie is made from 100 percent sustainable cotton and features an athletic fit and range of motion stitching that allows golfers to swing freely. It’s offered in six colors, including classics like Navy and Heather Grey, and sizes small through XXL. Pair your Higgins Hoodie with a pair of RADMOR’s Five-O Knit Performance Pants, the closest thing to wearing pajamas on the course.
MSRP: $120 (Higgins), $128 (Five-O)
3D Flyover from GolfLogix
The drone-like 3D Flyover component offers golfers the opportunity to strategize on how to best attack any given hole, based on ability level, by showing a true representation of their ball in flight, using their own personal club distances for their tee shots and then their approach shots, so that they can see what lies ahead before they address the ball.
Bushnell Tour V5 Patriot
The Tour V5 Patriot is Bushnell at its category-leading best. Easy to unbox, simple to start up and sporting a sleek-yet-powerful design that will get more than a few looks from your playing partners. Aesthetics aside, avid golfers want two things out of their rangefinder: speed and accuracy. The Tour V5 delivers both in abundance.
PuttView Yardage & Green Maps
Technology isn’t just reserved for smartphones and wearable GPS devices. Yardage and greens maps by PuttView have become staples for serious golfers of all skill levels, and the upstart company continues to improve upon the original each year. Tournament organizers relish PuttView’s new Event Books, which are customizable for charitable events and other outings.
MSRP: $49.99 (yardage + green map)
GOLFFOREVER Swing Trainer
Golf Forever has surged to the head of the golf fitness class over the past two years, buoyed not only by Justin Leonard, Scottie Scheffler and Ryan Palmer’s involvement but also by its undeniable results.
This year, the company rolled out its new Swing Trainer, taking the entire system to new heights by offering dozens of new warm-up routines and drills. The full kit includes a bevy of helpful stuff designed to make you a better, stronger golfer within a few weeks.
