But, spending four-plus hours in the hot sun can take its toll on dear ol' dad's body. Worldwide Golf Shops has summer weather gear featuring everything from hats and sunscreen to solar sleeves and all the ap- parel a father needs to face golf course conditions. You can also keep his temperature down on hot days with items such as the misty mate Cool towel, which stays cold for hours, or the misty mate 3 personal mister, which will deliver an instant cooling sensation with the push of a button. shop here. traininG aids sweeten up his swinG If dad is the type who is always working on improv- ing his game and tinkering with his swing, there are plenty of gift options that will help him either at home or at the driving range. Hitting mats and nets are a great option for the golfer who might not have time to spend at the golf course but can get out in the backyard or garage to take a few swings and keep his game fresh. And putting mats are great for home use or to take to the office for a little stress relief between meetings. Some of the best-selling training products are those from world-renowned instructor dave pelz – not only mats and nets but putting tracks, alignment aids and mats to help with foot and ball posi- tions for the various types of short-game shots. Tully said the orange whip swing trainer is also a popular seller. "We're doing a lot with our blog trying to pair training aids with videos so people can get some more help- ful tips on how to use them," he said. shop here. left-handers' shop Gifts for the southpaw If your dad is a southpaw, chances are you've had a hard time shopping for golf clubs for him in the past.
