Green playbooks aren’t just for top amateurs, they can help every player putt better. StrackaLine offers different options. You can buy a single book for your dad’s home course, or buy a digital plan for $100 a year and get access to thousands of courses if your dad is a more adventurous golfer.

COBALT Q-6 – THE AG EDITOR’S CHOICE LASER RANGEFINDER
Your dad deserves the best for Father’s Day, and Cobalt is the best rangefinder on the market. The bright blue ¾ pound case houses an array of exceptional delivered technologies. Dads everywhere will love the ergonomic grip and tenth of a meter accuracy.

Unfortunately, it does not come with a shot performance guarantee.

Is your dad banging all the way through class and ignoring advice? Then look no further than V1 Game, the ultimate game improvement app. It’s designed to help him track every shot he hits, but the app goes beyond just tracking; he offers advice. If he plays the same course, each time he returns he can see where he scored from in a previous round. The more he uses it, the more he can learn and improve his game.

CALLAWAY CORONADO GOLF SHOES
These stylish and comfortable shoes were a hit at AG’s Two-Man Links Father & Son in Bandon Dunes. We love them so much that we made sure every contestant got a pair as a gift. With spiked or non-spiked options, you can find the perfect model for the dad in your life. As a bonus, product purchases include a donation to Fairways for Warriors, a charity that helps injured veterans and their families. A nice gift and a donation for a good cause? What an all-in-one package.

What if I told you that you could increase club head speed by 2 mph with a pair of shoe soles? It almost sounds too good to be true until three-time major winner Padraig Harrington shares that VKTRY insoles helped him reach a ball speed of 198 MPH. WHAT!!! The theory behind these insoles for golfers is that they aid in weight transfer while increasing stability during the swing. Developed by a certified podiatrist for the United States Olympic Bobsled Team, VKTRY is the only sports insole on the market that provides heel-to-toe protection and stabilization to help reduce injuries such as slip toes. grass, plantar fasciitis, heel pain and ankle sprains.
To receive $20 off VKTRY performance insoles, go to www.vktrygear.com and enter discount code AG20 at checkout.
FOOTJOY EQUIPMENT TO “MAKE EVERY DAY PLAYABLE”
Weekend golf games don’t wait for good weather. And FootJoy has been helping golfers battle through the rainiest days for many years. A pair of rain gloves is a basic necessity. But they wear out, get lost, and even if dad has a game, a backup is never a bad idea. Of course, a quality rain jacket and rain pants are both crucial – FootJoy’s HydroLite is our recommendation there. Why not grab a warm beanie or maybe even something for the warmer days, while you’re at it?
