Like any other human, each golfer is different. They may play a common game with common equipment, but their playing styles and temperaments come in all kinds. A golf gift that's truly special is one that speaks to the personality of its recipient. Here are some examples of golf personality types that can help you find a suitable gift for the golfer in your life.
This golfer takes his game very seriously. He doesn't let silly things like family gatherings or near-apocalyptic weather conditions keep him from the course. He will use anything and everything that can give him an advantage over the competition. Support his maniacal drive with these high-performance and technologically advanced gifts:
This guy is the opposite of the Athlete. He appreciates a good round as much as anyone, but ultimately, golf is a way for him to hang out with his friends and in many cases, have a few drinks as well. If you want to get him the most cutting-edge driver on the market, fine. But know that's more of a status symbol to him than anything else. These gifts will be just as appreciated:
The Underachiever is, well, just that. He tries so hard but still can't keep up with his buddies. These gifts may be tricky to pull off without hurting anyone's feelings, but if your Underachiever has a sense of humor about it, they can be just the pick-me-up he needs:
The Newbie is the beginner golfer who's very excited about the game and can't wait to hit the course. Encourage him, but be careful not to overspend on him because there's a still chance that he may lose interest.
Female golfers can fit into any of these categories, but the Diva is a special lady. Her preference for all things hyper-feminine doesn't mean she isn't a highly skilled and highly competitive golfer. These gifts will appeal to both her girly tastes and her athletic prowess:
This guy loves his golf, but it's not the only sport in his life. The Sports Fanatic is crazy for his teams and their stats, and don't you dare challenge him on them. These gifts let him show off his team spirit on the golf course:
The History Buff believes that one can't truly be a golfer without a thorough knowledge of golf's rich history. He fondly reflects on the glorious era of Bobby Jones and Ben Hogan, even if he wasn't alive to see them. Inspire his real or imagined nostalgia with these classic gifts:
This person first took up golf in order to look "ironic". He soon found a genuine love for the game, but he still wants to look cool on the course. Make The Hipster happy with apparel that says, "Hey, I may be playing among the elderly but I'm very much alive!":
Our U-try golf club demo program lets you try out a brand new golf club from the game's top brands for 14 days and only $25 a club or $100 an iron set. That's right—you get a brand new, still-in-the-plastic club to try for two weeks for just $25.
You get to try it when, where, and how you want for two weeks before deciding if you want to buy it or not.
Want to test out two different brands, or two different configurations? No problem. U-try lets you try out up to 2 clubs for $25 per club or 1 iron set for $100.
This isn't 30 minutes on the range with range balls, a pro looking over your shoulder, and an awkward conversation at the end about whether you want it or not.
U-try gives you the freedom to test drive the club on your course, at your pace, with the golf ball you play. Use it as much as you like so you can really know what the club will do for your game before you invest in it.
If you don't love it, simply put it back in the box it came in, use the included prepaid return shipping label, and send it back to us. That's it.
If you do love it, that's awesome! You keep the club, we'll subtract the $25 trial fee off the final cost of the club, and we'll charge you the difference.
