father's day Gift Guide 9 divine Gift ideas Just for dad C hances are your dad was one of your first golf partners, and maybe the per- son who introduced you to the game. If you're lucky, you still play a regular round with pops. Given all that he has given you when it comes to golf – not to mention all the other parental chores he has dutifully per- formed over the years – it seems appropriate when shopping for the perfect Father's Day gift to seek out the best in golf equipment, apparel and accessories. While a dozen balls or a new golf shirt might be obvious choices, Josh Tully, the Ecommerce Manager for Worldwide Golf Shops, offered some other unique suggestions for a memorable Father's Day. Most of the products are available at your local World- wide Golf Shops retailers, but Tully pointed out that the company's website has the widest variety, including some items that may not be carried in every store. ver.indd 1 12/1/1 ver.indd 1 12/1/1 ver.indd 1 12/1/1 ver.indd 1 12/1/1 GOL F GEAR teChnoloGy brinG musiC to dad's ears Technology becomes more and more ubiquitous in our daily lives, and the golf course is no exception.

If pops perhaps enjoys a few tunes to accompany his round, Worldwide Golf Shops offers a selection of portable bluetooth cart speakers. "The extreme 18 speakers have been pretty popular – they're durable and water resistant, and feature up to 15 hours of play time. Plus they fit easily into a golf cart cup holder or can be clipped onto your bag," Tully said. shop here. travel aCCessories built for the road warrior Planning a golf buddies trip with dad?
