As long as there has been golf – Old Tom Morris and Young Tom Morris, anybody? – there has been fathers and sons. It’s a rite-of-passage, a bonding opportunity, and one of those things that will never get old.
And now, more than ever, it’s been fathers and daughters playing together, too.
For the man who maybe put that first club in your hand, drove you to practice, got you your first membership, or missed a short putt on the 18th hole to finally let you beat him for the first time, here is a list of great equipment for Father’s Day.
Callaway Epic Speed Driver
Another big-time addition to the driver landscape from Callaway, which relied on artificial technology and a supercomputer to help develop a driver that is Callaway’s fastest. The new Jailbreak AI speed frame helps to improve stability both torsionally and horizontally to help install exceptional ball speed across Callaway’s driver face.
Titleist TSi1 Driver
Available in four versions (appropriately numbered 1 through 4) for however dad swings, the latest Titleist driver has already been Tour-proven and used by the best golfers in the world. Of course, it’s good enough for the best dad in the world, too! Titleist’s new ATI 425 face is built specifically to be faster at impact and is super strong.
TaylorMade SIM 2 MAX Irons
TaylorMade SIM 2 MAX OS Irons
If dad is looking for an iron that does it all, the TaylorMade SIM2 irons are just that. A fast and forgiving face has increased flexibility, it boasts a forged-iron feel, has inverted cone technology (to help with mishits) and the TaylorMade SIM2 irons have a brand-new Cap Back design which incorporates lightweight polymers plus high-strength stainless steel for maximum feel, forgiveness, and distance.
Ping G425 Irons
Totally re-engineered for 2021, the Ping G425 irons have a variable face thickness design that’s inspired by metalwoods. The construction, unique for a Ping iron, gives golfers higher launch, more distance, and helps increase flexing for more ball speed. Not only that, but the Ping G425 irons also have water-repellent hydropearl chrome finish, which means dad can tee it up in any weather condition without issue.
Cobra RADSpeed Fairway Wood
While traditionally shaped, the Cobra RADSPEED fairway wood is anything but traditional under the hood. The new front-biased radial weighting gives golfers high-launch trajectories and low spin. That strategic weight placement on the RADSPEED fairway wood helps to optimize speed, flight direction, and forgiveness.
New Titleist Pro V1 1 Golf Balls
New Titleist Pro V1x 1 Golf Balls
If dad plays golf, he likely loses golf balls. Why not re-up with the long-time number one ball in golf, the Titleist Pro V1? The new Pro V1 sees Titleist deliver even longer distance, better control, softer feel, and even more greenside spin that previous models.
TaylorMade TP5x Golf Ball
TaylorMade TP5 Golf Ball
A Tour ball trusted by the likes of Rory McIlroy and Dustin Johnson, the TaylorMade TP5 is a 5-layer ball that delivers top-shelf performance from the fairway, around the green, and off the tee. The new Tour flight dimple pattern from TaylorMade helps dad to maximize his carry distance, while the new TP5 is also the softest and highest spinning Tour ball TaylorMade has ever made.
TaylorMade 5.0 Stand Bag
Available in three colours, the TaylorMade 5.0 golf stand bag weighs only 4.1 pounds but has a ton of storage of all of dad’s stuff. The four-way organizational top is complimented by six pockets. The bag also boasts an EVA molded hip pad to add to the comfort when carrying.
