Let’s face it, the average holiday gift guide sucks. It’s not that we don’t need a little help. Good ideas are always appreciated, but the reality is most gift guides don’t offer you truly great gifts, instead they’re often just an indicator of which companies have the best PR.
Maybe there are some gifts worth giving…maybe not. Why should you take the chance?
This year we decided to do something different. Rather than make room for anything and everything that hit our inbox with the subject line of Holiday Gift Ideas, we decided to offer you a Holiday Guide full of gift ideas that we actually believe in.
What’s here is nothing less than the best products we tested in 2015.
With prices that range for less than $20 to just a hair under $800, our guide has that proverbial something for everyone, or at least every golfer on your list.
Carbon Ringo Putter (Blade)
A new name on the putter scene, Carbon’s Ringo out-performed 28 other blade putters to earn Most Wanted honors and a spot on this list.
PUMA Performance Formation Glove
PUMA styling in a tour-quality cabretta glove for half the cost of some so-called premium offerings. Yes please.
TaylorMade Tour Preferred Glove
Our top choice in the Tour Glove category, the supple TaylorMade Tour Preferred offers everything better players want from their glove.
SkyPro Digital Swing Analyzer
Offering an intuitive app and feature set that provides enough information to be useful, yet not overwhelming, SkyPro is our top choice among Swing Analyzers.
Datrek Go Lite Stand Bag
Fully loaded with 14 full-length dividers, the Datrek Go Lite weights less than 6 pounds and costs less than 150 bucks.
Cobra FLY-Z Driver
Despite a series of price drops, our Most Wanted Driver is as good as it ever was (and that’s really good). Available for well under $200, it’s also the best bargain on our list.
PING Ketsch Heavy Putter (Mallet)
Following in the footsteps of the original Ketsch, the Cadence Ketsch Heavy is a can’t miss, or should we say doesn’t miss, mallet.
PING Pioneer ii Cart Bag
With 15 full length dividers, more than ample storage, and an insulated drink pouch that can swallow a 12-pack, the PING Pioneer II may be the perfect cart bag.
BagBoy Tri-Swivel ii Push Cart
The Cadillac of push carts, the BagBoy Tri-Swivel II has a front wheel that swivels when you want it to, and locks straight when you don’t.
Arccos GPS Round Tracker & Game Analysis
You can’t buy a better game, so why not buy Arccos, a detailed round tracking tool, that will arm you with the knowledge needed to build one.
Garmin Approach G8 GPS
The right-sized, and easy-to-read G8 is loaded with features and still has enough battery life to last all day, and then some.
Garmin Approach S6 Watch
The most feature-rich GPS watch in golf, the S6 does everything you’d want a golf GPS watch to do…and plenty more.
Leupold 4i2 Rangefinder
Laser fast (sorry), crystal clear, bright optics, and interchangeable face plates, the GX-4i2 is a flagship rangefinder that makes for a flagship gift (even if it’s for yourself).
TaylorMade RSI 1 Irons
After a dominant performance in our test, we believe TaylorMade’s RSi 1 is the best game-improvement iron on the market. Why not give the best?
