Christmas Gift Guide Part 2: The Emergency 9


You’re probably receiving dozens of emails trying to sell you last-minute gifts for Christmas. But we know that for some of our male readers, Christmas shopping can begin after lunch on December 24th.

By Tony Dear

Here’s a second gift guide—an emergency nine, if you will—to complement last week’s 18 ideas.

TecTecTec ULT-X Golf Laser Rangefinder

TecTecTec is the No. 1-selling rangefinder brand on Amazon and the ULT-X is its most advanced model to date. Target Lock Technology (TLT) makes the unit vibrate when it locks on the target, and a visible slope toggle can easily be engaged/disengaged (for USGA-conforming play). Measures distances up to 300 yards and is precise within 0.3 yards. Premium lens and 6x magnification for ultra-clear and accurate view. Two-year warranty.


Under Armour Recovery Sunglasses

Whether out on a run, taking a hike, or spending the day on the golf course, your eyes have been stressed by the sun. The UA Tuned Recovery lens utilizes a proprietary and restorative color profile that eliminates harmful violet light and allows helpful blue light to regulate natural circadian rhythms and rest eyes. You rest your body, why not rest your eyes? Free two-day shipping.
UA Tuned™ Recovery Glimpse – $110
UA Tuned™ Recovery Pulse – $125


Rocket Tour Headcovers

Hand-crafted and finished personally by founder Helena Stanton in Boulder, and used by more than 300-plus NCAA golf programs, Rocket Tour head covers come in a variety of signature striped, solid and argyle designs available for drivers, fairway woods, hybrids and putters. Order by December 19 with FEDEX 2-Day service for by Christmas delivery.


Personalized Golf Balls

Free customization of your golfer’s favorite ball brand, and also bags, apparel, tees…each available with the industry’s largest selection of customization options in a range of budgets. Example: Titleist Pro-V1s are $45/dozen.


GolfTec Lessons and Club Fitting

By giving more than one million lessons a year, GolfTec is the largest golf instruction provider in the world with student’s scores dropping by an average of seven strokes. The Gold Holiday Package consists of one 60-minute Swing Evaluation, three 30-minute lessons, three 30-minute practice sessions and one TECFIT club fitting session.


Global Golf Gift Card

Great deals on new and used golf gear. U-try program allows golfers to test drivers, fairway woods, hybrids and irons for up to two weeks. All budgets


PGA Tour Superstore Gift Card/Lesson Packages

Another great gift card option is from the PGA Tour Superstore which has a store in Greenwood Village. Lesson packages are also available. $70 for a single adult lesson, Kids Pack (ages 12 and under) – six lessons for $150.
We also love the Black Clover Colorado Flag Patch Hat that retails at $30.


The Golf Club Video Game

Created by Canada’s HB studios, the Golf Club is a golf video game with incredible graphics and player options available for PlayStation 4, Steam, and Xbox One. Course Creator enables you to design and add your own course to the library on which over 170,000 user-built layouts are already accessible.

Bionic Men’s StableGrip with Natural Fit Glove

Enhanced three-dimensional finger pads and a tapered finger design to conform to the natural shape and contours of your hand for better grip, comfort and durability. Lycra gussets and web zones eliminate bunching of leather between fingers and give a more natural, ‘broken-in’ fit and feel.
