53be0e482c7339d07e61d58ce7d7f928

Your dad doesn’t need to be a great golfer to enjoy these gift picks, but they will all help him enjoy the game even more.


Ecco blends the popular look of the street-style hybrid and the ultra-comfortable technology of
the BIOM to make the Ecco BIOM Hybrid. $190, www.eccousa.com


This club was so long, it was called RocketBallz during testing. The name stuck — but if dad is a prude, tell him it’s the TaylorMade RBZ, the hottest  fairway wood on the market. $229,

Take our word for it, this is the coolest piece of equipment a golfer can carry. Bushnell is the industry
leader in laser rangefinders and the new Tour Z6 has technology to lock on the pin so dad can never again say he had the wrong yardage. $399, www.bushnellgolf.com


Golf fashion icon John Ashworth is behind this line of cool on- and off-course apparel. Linksoul swaps out space-age fibers for great-feeling fabrics and comfortable fits. $35 and up, www.linksoul.com


If you’re going to splurge, do it right. Mizuno’s JPX-800HD (high-distance) maintains the quality Mizuno is known for while making the game easier for higher handicap golfers. $699,

Gone are the days of wingtips on the course. Bring dad back to his younger days with Adidas’ update on the Samba — a comfortable, lightweight golf shoe. $100, www.adidasgolf.com


Combine a fitness tracker, MP3 player and a golf GPS and you’ve got Motorola’s MOTOACTV.
