I’ve gotten about a million emails, tweets and Facebook updates regarding Black Friday. They’re at it already, even though Black Friday is two days away. Each year I like to post golf gift guides for the holiday season (politically correct term for Christmas), featuring products I’ve reviewed. Today I’m going to feature my top 10 golf gifts under $30. These are in no particular order, just the order that they stumbled out of my cranium. Each item has a link to the Hooked On Golf Blog product review for more details.
iPing Putter App – $30
Combined with the iPing iPhone cradle, the iPing application analyzes your putting stroke and gives all sorts of great statistics as well as comparisons with pro players’ strokes.
Score Band – $29
Punch in your scores on your wrist. Available in several colors.
SKLZ TRAINERmat Golf Fitness Training Mat – $29
Flexibility is the key to a fluid golf swing and more club head speed. I do my stretches and exercises at home on the SKLZ TRAINER-mat.
Frogger BrushPro – $19.95
The Frogger BrushPro has been a crucial part of my gamer bag since I first reviewed it back in 2007! The BrushPro keeps my grooves clean so I can have total control over my shots, especially in the short game department.
Champ Flix Switchblade Action Divot Tool – Under $10
The Champ Flix switchblade divot tool is great. It doesn’t poke a hole in my pocket or my leg, and it is very light. The magnetic ball marker is a nice, convenient bonus.
World’s Coolest Skull Golf Belt Buckle – $24.99
Tattoo Golf makes a killer pewter “skull and golf club bones” belt buckle. Just up my alley, being a rock & roll musician and golfer! Everyone needs a skull belt buckle.
Innovex V-Motion & E-Motion Golf Balls – Under $30 and as good as a ProV1
Would you like to play a ball as good as a ProV1, but pay the price of Rock Flites? Try out the Innovex E-Motion and V-Motion golf balls! They’re great.
Kentwool Tour Wool Golf Socks – $19.95
I know what you are saying, “$19.95 for golf socks?” Trust me on this. Kentwool golf socks are 3-4 times as expensive as regular golf socks from the standard manufacturers, but they’re about 492 billion times better. I have a sock drawer full of “nice” cotton golf socks I never wear anymore.
Asher Golf Gloves – $9.99 to $19.95
Asher Golf Gloves are cool. I’m a fan of any company who can combine skulls/bones and golf. Not only are Asher’s gloves cool looking, they work great and breath well.
Tornado Tee – $15.99 for 5 tees
I have yet to post my review of Tornado Tees. I’m working on this one right now. But I’m so stoked about this cool product made by a local pal John here I needed to post.
