Peter Millar Cradle Performance Crewneck
Even though we are into the warmer months on the calendar, early-morning tee times can sometimes still be chilly. The Peter Millar Cradle Crewneck is a must-have for on or off the course. This classic piece is the perfect second layer, offering four-way stretch, moisture-wicking and easy-care benefits for optimal comfort. Finished with raglan sleeves, clean banded cuffs and a banded hem. If dad doesn’t wear it in the summer, he’ll be glad he has it in the closet when fall temps arrive.

Ghost Golf magnetic towels
Give dad’s back a break. Ghost Golf’s magnetic towel is the perfect solution to preventing dad from having to bend down to pick up his towel around the green or in the fairway. With a magnet hidden inside a silicone logo patch, the Tour-sized towels easily attach to clubs, putter heads or golf carts. Made of super-absorbent material that holds 400% of its weight in water, Ghost Golf towels retain moisture for an entire round.
Bose Frames audio sunglasses
If only Al Czervik had a pair of Bose Frames sunglasses on, he wouldn’t have angered Judge Smails with his loud music on the fairways of Bushwood CC. The debate about playing music on the golf course has been around long before Rodney Dangerfield’s character danced with the caddies in Caddyshack. With Bluetooth connectivity and Bose Open Ear Audio, the Bose Frames allow golfers to quietly listen to music, podcasts, or radio play-by-play during football season while also keeping the sun out of their eyes. Available in three different styles.
The Mevo is FlightScope's smallest and most affordable launch monitor. With eight data parameters and 3D Doppler radar technology to provide accurate data on every shot, the lightweight and portable unit can help improve anybody’s golf game, from the beginner to the single-digit handicapper. Use the Mevo unit on the driving range, the course or at home. For the data junkie dad or grad, the Mevo provides feedback on carry distance, spin rate, club speed, ball speed, vertical launch, smash factor, apex height, and flight time.
Ubuntu Life Lama Mule slipper
After a long day on the course, let dad treat his feet to some Ubuntu comfort. Handmade in Kenya from high-quality locally sourced leather, the Lama Mules will slide on effortlessly. Made with traditional jute soles with vulcanized rubber for durability, the material will stretch and mold to dad’s feet over time. While these may not be dad’s style out of the box, they will eventually become his favorite around-the-house slip-ons. Order a half-size up as they run narrow.
DJI Mavic Air 2 drone
Late in the day, with the sun setting and the course to yourself, wouldn’t it be great to get some aerial drone video of your approach shot on that picturesque par-3 over the lake? The DJI Mavic Air 2 takes power and portability to the next level, offering advanced features in a compact drone. With more than 30 minutes of total flight time, there’s plenty of battery life to capture some of the best views around and above the course.
WHOOP Strap 4.0
You’ve seen Justin Thomas and other PGA Tour players with a strap around their upper arm or wrist and wondered—what is that? The WHOOP Strap 4.0 biometric tracking device is much more than an ordinary fitness tracker. Comfortable enough to wear non-stop with durable SuperKnit bands and a waterproof battery pack, the Strap allows the user to monitor key vital signs as well as providing detailed personal data, such as sleep habits and heart rate.
