2020 Father’s Day Gifts

Father Day Gifts

You may be wondering why this paragraph is headed Father Day Gifts instead of Father's Day Gifts.

The reason is that apparently more people search for "father day gifts" than search for "father's day gifts". I guess they just can't be bothered typing the 's. So I'm using that term to help those people to find my "father day" gift suggestions.

Inspirational Book

Arnold Palmer A Life Well Played

You don't have to be a golfer to appreciate the late Arnold Palmer's book A Life Well Played.

This book is Palmer’s parting gift to the world -- a treasure trove of entertaining anecdotes and timeless wisdom that readers, golfers and non-golfers alike, will celebrate and cherish. No one has won more fans around the world and no player has had a bigger impact on the sport of golf than Arnold Palmer. In fact, Palmer is considered by many to be the most important professional golfer in history, an American icon.

"A wonderful compilation that reflects who he was as a person, as a golfer, and as someone who believed in giving back. He was a champion at each turn, and it was an honor not just knowing him and competing against him for nearly 60 years, but also being his friend." ―Jack Nicklaus, from the foreword.

A great gift for any Dad on Father's Day.

2020 Best Golf Putters

Our Best Putters for Men and Women

S7K Standing Putter for Men and Women

S7K Standing Putter for Men and Women –Stand Up Golf Putter for Perfect Alignment –Legal for Tournament Play –Eliminate 3-Putts

These are Amazon reviews from genuine purchasers of this putter:

"I am shocked. I bought this putter against my better judgement, imagine buying any club without testing it? Not me. But, I figured it might confirm my alignment and then I’d return it. Well, it didn’t confirm my alignment, it corrected it. And the feel of the club is much better than its “look”. Result, I am putting better, my playing partners are not happy, but I sure am."

"I purchased the S7K after watching a review by Rick Shiels golf video. This putter is supposed to help with alignment and holding the putter correctly. It does do that, and I am already finding that the putter head helps with starting the ball in the right direction."

The only negative about this putter is the foam like handle. I found it to cause my hands to feel very uncomfortable. I am older and use a larger putter handle on my old Odessey putter. So, after putting with the S7K for two rounds of golf, I had the handle replaced with a larger putter handle, and that has helped me with the comfort of using the putter. However, the putter doesn’t stand up on its own in some positions on a non-level green. So, I guess it was designed with that handle in mind."

"I wasn't sure what to expect when I ordered the putter, but I was not ready for how much I love this thing! Probably shaved 6 or more strokes off my round the first time I used it! I read that it's legal, but honestly, it shouldn't be - it's too good to be legal!"

"Man, this thing is amazing. Took it to the course for the first time yesterday. Several 10 to 15 footer and almost a 35 footer. I have not put like this ever. Now if your issue with putting is line up (my case), this is it, you will put like pros. Other issues like pulling or pushing still would be a problem but not so much. The head is heavy and help with that a little bit. I usually don't write reviews, but this putter deserves my 5 minutes. Yes, I have tried lots of putters including new Spider, new Two balls , I line, name it. I was fitted twice and never put like I did yesterday. Can't wait to take it back to the course. Not sure about a foam grip but I will live with it."

The manufacturer says:

PERFECT LINE EVERY TIME: Close to 80% of putts are missed before you even start your stroke and poor alignment is to blame; Using the S7K golf putter you set the putter behind the ball and then step back to check your alignment from behind and down the line instead of looking over the ball and to the side; You will see in an instant if you are misaligned so you can correct it and take a confident stroke.

STANDS UP BY ITSELF, EVEN ON SLOPES: Other standing putters claim to stand on their own but struggle on uneven lies and imperfect green conditions; The S7K was meticulously tested to stand by itself even on slopes and in a light breeze; Just set it, check it, stroke it, sink it; Quickly start drain more putts from all over the green.

BUILT-IN IMPACT POSITION & STRIKE DOT: The S7K stand up putter has the perfect setup built right in; Once it’s aligned just place your hands on the grip and take your stroke, no adjusting the angle of the shaft. Plus the impact strike dot tells you exactly where to focus on contact for consistently solid putts; Perfect alignment, setup and impact give you extreme confidence in your putting.

EXCEPTIONAL FEEL, BALANCE & ROLL: The S7K’s ultra-light grip and shaft transfer tons of feedback to your hands, enhancing your speed and distance control; You will enjoy a buttery feel and sweet sound at impact, plus the best sound of all, the sound of the ball dropping in the cup; The S7K practically swings itself and rolls pure; Never miss another easy putt inside 10 feet.

LEGAL FOR TOURNAMENT PLAY & 1-YEAR MANUFACTURER WARRANTY; High-quality construction backed by unbeatable one-year manufacturer warranty against defects.

How to Improve Your Putting

Improve Your Golf Putting

The Correct Putting Posture

Correct Posture for Golf Putting

As the professionals say "drive for pleasure, putt for profit." Over and over again you see golf matches won or lost by the quality and consistency of the putting. This applies to your local round of 4 as much as to the big national and international championships. One of the biggest mistakes amateurs make is not focusing on achieving the correct posture for putting.

They are either hunched over the ball or they stand very tall with their eyes nowhere near the line of the ball. If you want to improve your putting, start with having some flex in the knees and a tilt from your hips so that your eyes are then over the ball.
