Holiday Gift Ideas for Golfers 2017 – Part 2

The Holiday Season is upon us, so I’ve put together some ideas for products that would make great gifts for golfers. I’ve included several products ranging in price from $7.99 – $1995. They are listed in order of price from lowest to highest.

Garsen Golf Quad Tour Proto Grips

Garsen grips are fast gaining popularity with 10 wins on the PGA Tour. Major Champion winners such as Retief Goosen and Henrik Stenson and Geoff Olgilvy are devotees of the Garsen grips. I personally have become a better putter since installing the grips.

Garsen Golf Quad Tour Proto GripsThe Garsen Golf “Quad Tour Proto” putter grip was designed with direct input from PGA tour players and the top putting coaches on tour and are currently in play by over a dozen PGA tour players.

Garsen has taken the same technology which has led to the success of the EDGE and MAX putter grips. The QUAD grip was designed with a more traditional hand placement but with the benefits of the original grips which helps turn your elbows into your body and sets your shoulders baOKck.

This relieves arm and shoulder tension, inhibits wrist action, which takes “the hands out of the putting” and promotes proper shoulder rotation, creating a solid putting stroke, which will give you a one-piece feel, leading to a more consistent stroke.

They are available in non-tapered $28.95 and full taper $24.95 in a (red/blu) (blu/red) color combination.

WellPutt USA

Originally conceived in Europe, devotees of the Wellstroke training aid include Gregory Bourdy, Benjamin Herbert, Pablo Larrazabal, Miguel Angel Jimenez and Rafael Caberra-Bello, all top-ranked European Tour players.

WellPutt USAOlivier Leglise, the inventor said “My first goal for this invention was to provide players with a very simple and precise device essentially based on the 3 major components of successful putts: contact, direction and speed. WELLSTROKE (Motion Putting Guide) was born from my collaboration with the WELLPUTT company”.

This putting guide will help you reproduce the ideal putting movement thanks to the 3 main markers of your swing:

1. The path of the club for proper contact control.
2. The clubface orientation for perfect direction
3. The swing amplitude for good distance control.

Conception, original design, manufacturing, and marketing of this new putting training aid was created from R&D through the mind mapping concept that enable muscle memory in order to acquire natural reflexes. For a detailed understanding and description of this concept, please visit www.wellput.com.

The Wellstroke will help you build your “swing of putting” and guarantee you regularity in this game category. You will definitely work your ball contact to get a perfect ball roll.

You will also learn how to control the orientation of your putter face throughout the stroke.

The Wellputt allows you to fix in memory the amplitude range corresponding to your own intensity.

Models are available in both right handed and left handed models and aptly named, Standard, Square and Light.

Wellstroke Light Wellstroke Square Wellstroke Standard

The result was the design of 3 Wellstroke training models, each dependent on the player and his own method of putting, therefore enabling him to work and improve with a guide perfectly suited to his own style.

Each model has a slightly different swing arc design, allowing each player, regardless of his putter style, his morpholoy and his technical preferences to train with a customized putting support.

A brilliant putting training aid!

$59.00

The “PRO” (original) Welling-putt is the ultimate putting mat, not just by its concept, but also the quality of its texture and the exercises in its Training Book. Speed 11FT.

$169.00

PING

nunchuck

Last year PING had the best-selling driver in the G30 model. This year, their new PING G has attracted a new set of devotees to the PING clan.
What the G driver offers is what every golfer desires – faster club head and ball speed. Using proprietary Turbulator Technology, VorTec and face/crown transition to combine for more efficient air flow, there is definitely a noticeable difference over the G30 version – all good.
The T9S Titanium face is thinner and hotter for maximum distance and deflection. The club’s adjustability with its 5-lobe hosel sleeve, allows ±1 degree of loft adjustment.
Another improvement is the DragonFly Technology –

Having problems with your swing? – Fix your slice! by Johnny Miller

I recently was examining swing sequences of some of the greatest players in history. Knowing that some of these players favored a draw as their standard shot while others preferred a fade, I sought to identify swing features within each group that would explain their respective ball-flight tendencies. Something profound emerged that I think will benefit all golfers, especially those cursed with a wicked slice.

What I found was this: Virtually every accomplished fader of the ball–from Jack Nicklaus to Tiger Woods–displayed a straight left arm at the top of the backswing. Conversely, those who preferred a draw–players like Arnold Palmer and Bobby Jones–maintained a slight bend at the elbow.

This discovery is great news for most slicers, as they tend to do by accident what intentional faders do on purpose. In this article I’ll explain why the dynamic works, and how a simple swing change will make a powerful draw your standard shot.
