Golf Gifts For Dads FAQs
What Does Every Golfer Need?
Every golfer needs some key items in their golf bag when they hit the green. Some basics include plastic tees, golf gloves, and (definitely) golf balls. Some less obvious and more technical items like a yardage finder or gps, alignment rods for pre-game, and a groove brush for keeping neat will help any golfer perfect his game. Other things that will help the day go great like a good hat, sunscreen, a permanent marker for the log, oh‒and a log for stats, will guarantee your favorite golfer will be ready, set, and golf in no time (1).
What Should a Beginner Golfer Have In His Bag?
Any beginner golfer should take the time to prep their golf bag with everything they might need to get started. Their first set of golf clubs will make a huge difference when it comes to creating a new golf game for themselves. In addition to the basics like a golf bag and golf balls, a good golf push cart will make the difference between comfort and discomfort between shots. Tees always come in handy and they should never underestimate the importance of breathable, good quality golf clothes and towels to make the day on the links shine.
