    gifts for golf lovers

    SIM Driver

    This TaylorMade SIM club is a driver with a big sweet spot. Made of a combination of carbon, titanium, and steel, it has a stiff flex and a 10.5-degree loft, give or take two degrees. An aerodynamic design gives it a high moment of inertia (MOI) and forgiveness, and the coefficient of restitution (COR) is optimized at the most likely hit spots. In other words, this club brings more accurate shots and faster ball speeds. It’ll be a hit with any golfer looking for better results and is definitely one of the most desired gifts for golf lovers out there.

    Features & Benefits
    • Revolutionary New Shape with Aerodynamic Asymmetric Sole and Inertia Generator: Designed to provide faster clubhead speed for more ball speed and distance while the rear weight creates high MOI for improved forgiveness
    • Speed Injected technology for intelligently optimized C. O. R. where golfers typically hit it: Improves ball speed across the face by calibrating each head to the threshold of the legal speed limit
    • Twist Face: Uses corrective face angles designed to overcome inherent golfer tendencies on mis-hits and to produce straighter shots
    • Sliding Weight Technology and Loft Sleeve: Provides adjustability and personalization to optimize the club for each golfer’s trajectory, face angle, and flight bias preferences, up to +/-2° loft change and up to +/-20 yards of draw-fade bias
    • Multi-Material Construction with Carbon, Titanium, and Steel: Creates a head design where weight is positioned precisely in the head for ultra-low CG and high MOI

    Golf Laser Rangefinder

When the golfer nears the chosen distance to the flagstick, the Birdie function “chirps.” If that feature becomes too irksome, it can be turned off. This rangefinder can even pin distances from multiple targets. It has a long battery life and is less bulky than others of its kind.
