Father’s Day gift ideas for your kids
Hopefully, after being bought bacon, eggs, toast and coffee in bed, the kids will have the good sense to present you with one of these (below). You then head out to the course with your new toy/gear/garment, shoot a PB, and then come to watch the most exciting US Open ever on TV. It’s the perfect Father’s Day scenario. Just send them this link.
Cure RXi Putter
The RXi can be set up anywhere from 345 grams to 410 grams and delivers a staggering MOI of 8,500 – 9,950 depending on weight. The higher MOI of the RX1 provides much greater stability and forgiveness – something never before available in a blade style putter. With a higher Center of Gravity, lower loft and deep face that impact the ball at its equator, the RXi eliminates backspin and creates a lower, more consistent launch angle, sending the ball into a smoother, tighter forward roll that helps it stay on the intended line. The RXi also features a Triangulation Alignment system, which helps reduce the effects of eye dominance by engaging both eyes when aiming. The two discs at the heel and toe of the putter form a visual triangle or arrow with the ball at address. Simply point the ball on your intended line and let it roll. $299.95 – Available at pro shops nationwide and at cureputters.com
