Stocking Stuffers (Under $50)

KingMade Jerky

KingMade Jerky (about $8 for a 2.25-ounce bag)

Our first office shipment of KingMade Jerky — three bags worth — was finished by our staff in a matter of minutes. The tender, flavorful jerky, which was created by PGA Tour caddie Jeff King, is a hit with golfers because it eats more like a meal than it does a snack. We like the Classic Recipe, but they’re all good.

SaltyGrips

Salty Grips ($30+)

Taking a cue from fishing rods, Salty putter grips are made of cork. Their cork is harvested from Portugal, handcrafted in Virginia and then sealed with a water-resistant polymer. They’re lighter, more durable and simply more stylish than a standard rubber grip. If you notice them starting to age, you can take sandpaper to the grip and restore its original texture and coloring. Salty Grips come in several different sizes and can be customized on the company’s website.

Bushnell Z6 Jolt Laser Rangefinder ($300)

The Tour Z6 Jolt is barely bigger than a deck of cards, but it houses Bushnell’s most premium rangefinder technology. It’s accurate to 0.5 yards and its JOLT technology vibrates when a golfer locks onto a flag — not the stuff behind the green. That gives golfers peace of mind that they’ve got the right yardage.

Its VDT display is extremely bright, even in low-light conditions, and its 6X magnification gets golfers close enough to dial-in yardages to the corners of hazards and doglegs. If you want to browse more Golf GPS options, check out our list of 2014’s Best Rangefinders.

Game Golf Digital Tracking System ($199)

Game Golf is an interactive shot-tracking system that compiles stats from every shot during a round of golf. It’s really easy to use: install the individual tags onto the grip of your clubs, clip the tracking device onto your belt or waistline, then tap the tags on the device before every shot.

The web and mobile interface allows players to keep all stats and share them with friends or their teaching instructor, which is good for the sake of competition, improving their game, or a little of both. Read our front page Game Golf review for more information.

If the golfer in your life has been playing for a few decades, he’ll likely remember the iconic Jones carry bag.

TPIgolfWRX

TPI Assessment ($125)

Golfers often fail to recognize that flaws in their swing may be directly correlated to physical flaws — whether it be flexibility, upper body, lower body or core strength. The only way to figure out what improvements your golf body needs to make is to undergo an assessment, and a TPI assessment is one of the best options.

Is this gift guilting friends and family into working out? Maybe, but it’s the thought that counts.

An initial TPI assessment costs $125 and includes:

  • Professional mobility and stability screening
  • 3 month online work out
  • 3 month membership to MYTPI.com

TopGolf

Topgolf Gift Cards

The biggest complaint about golf nowadays is that it’s “too slow, too expensive and boring.” That’s a valid argument, but Top Golf has flipped that stereotype on its head. Top Golf offers golfers of all levels a place to enjoy the sport of golf without taking it too seriously. It’s a great place to enjoy a night out with friends, learn the sport in a fun atmosphere or simply to hone your craft at a unique range.

Even for the casual and/or beginning golfer, reservations or gift cards at the nearest Top Golf facility will be a hit. And it’s not that expensive, especially with the company’s holiday deals. Current locations include Atlanta, Austin, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Northern Virginia, Scottsdale and London, England.

Bose QuietComfort 20i Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headphones ($300)

Golfers who like to play or practice to music will love Bose’s QuietComfort 20i Acoustic Noise Cancelling headphones, which are as good as it gets when it comes to earbuds. The sound quality is what you would expect from Bose, and they’re popular with frequent travelers and gym-goers for their noise cancelling prowess.

If there’s one product to splurge on this holiday season, it’s Ping’s G30 driver. The G30 has a low, rearward center of gravity that makes it the most forgiving driver in golf — and usually the longest, too.

The G30 is the only product in any category to ever earn an A+ rating in our new review system and is our editor’s choice for longer drives. It’s the driver all other models will be compared to in 2015.

WRX Spotted: PXG TS6 Proto

Published

on

When it comes to PGA Tour players moonlighting as hardcore GolfWRXers, Ryan Moore would be a top candidate — from his rotating irons to what can only be described as a colossal amount of putter changes in his career he really is “one of us” …except for the fact that he gets to play for millions of dollars each week. It’s probably the reason he’s honestly one of my favorite players to watch!

What also makes Ryan Moore even more interesting is that he was the VERY first PXG Staff player – Troop Number 1! Being on a smaller tour staff certainly has its benefits, including the ability to have real input on prototypes and to have a la carte options when it comes to clubs, and in this case a new putter.

I give you the PROTO Gen2 TS6 a new putter we spotted at the Quicken Loans Classic this week in Detroit — just a short trip from the WRX offices (how could we not spot something new right?). It obviously has some similarities to another classic design, but in the world of putters, if it ain’t broke don’t fix it.

What makes the new putter uniquely PXG is are all the features it has from the Gen2 line

  • Interchangeable hosel design allows for multiple toe hang and appearance options
  • Milled face design increases ball speed consistency across the face
  • Weights in the bottom also allow for varying head weights
  • it’s 100% milled for a solid block of steel

With all things PXG, now that they have the CAD file up and running, I believe it’s just a matter of time before this will be added to the already popular line up of Gen2 putters, but…only time will tell.

WRX Spotlight: Stitch SL2 bag

Published

on

Founded in 2011, Stitch Golf has been making some of the highest quality and most popular accessories in the game. From head covers to personal travel bags, the company philosophy of “it’s all in the details” shines through with all of the products.

The latest creation is the all-new SL2 carry bag — Stitch is calling it “the perfect walking bag.” After taking the SL2 out for a few spins around the course, it’s hard to argue with them. What you also notice right away is the styling screams Stitch.

When I spoke with CEO Brad King, we talked about how much focus they put into every detail beyond just the functionality.

“The SL2 is modeled to look just like our tour bag, except a lot lighter and obviously easier to carry for the weekend golfing warrior,” King said. “Also, like a lot of our product,s it takes color cues from racing, which is why Stitch blue, orange, and navy are prominent.”

Brad used the term “golfing warrior” a few times in our discussion, and he said it epitomizes the idea of someone who takes their golf seriously, walks, maybe even plays 36 a day, and wants functionality from their golf bag — while also looking extremely sharp.

You can tell this is a Stitch bag from across the range, or a few holes over on the course, which means from a styling perspective “mission accomplished.”

So, about that functionality…

As a walker, there are certain key features I want in a bag to even consider it, but those features can vary depending on how and when I plan to use the bag (having a couple of golf bags is a luxury, I know). If it’s a small Sunday bag, then a limited space, single strap design with a few small yet functional pockets, is all I really need. If we’re talking a full-blown tournament or travel option, extra space for rain gear, gloves, range finder and all the other goodies including a double strap is almost a must…plus it has to fit easily on both a pushcart and riding cart.

The Stitch SL2 skews right in the middle and here’s why: It’s just about perfect

  • Comes in right a 4lbs
  • Minimal yet well designed pockets hold more than enough gear for 18 holes or more.
  • It’s almost completely water resistant thanks to Stitch’s Touring Fabric, a proprietary product used in all their bags that has the strength of leather, but is more durable & wear resistant. It also feels extremely sturdy.
  • Large, well-padded top easily holds 14 clubs and doesn’t “mush” you putter cover up (HUGE pet peeve of mine)
  • Straps that can be configured for both single or double use. It comes with both options stock and is easily interchangeable thanks to the pinch clips.

Ball Pocket and Zippered Water Bottle pouch

Velvet lined pocket to hold a watch or valuables

Base sits almost flush and is very stable – never noticed clubs getting tangled

I told you the top was BIG

Now I realize you don’t come to GolfWRX for fluff pieces, you come for honesty, and I wouldn’t be doing my job without pointing out a few things that could be improved on, as nitpicky as they might be.

  • The bag sits a little upright. If you have to place it on a side hill you just have to take an extra moment to make sure it’s balanced before letting it go (not a huge deal).
  • The rain hood (which is AWESOME and matches the bag) is bulky, and if you do cram it into the large side pouch it doesn’t leave much room for anything else. It means really planning ahead if you think you’ll be playing in wet weather. BUT on the other hand, I think I’ve used a rain hood twice in the last 5 years (I don’t normally carry one anyway), so this is in NO way a deal breaker.
  • Limited padding where the bag rests against your back. Personally, I don’t find this a big deal since most bags in the minimalist category have very little padding if any, but in the spirit of a full breakdown its just part of making sure I point out everything I noticed while testing it. The fabric used is so thick it still made it comfortable to carry for 18 holes.

Overall the Stitch SL2 really is a wonderful bag. The styling is top notch, the fabrics and build quality are premium, and every touchpoint screams high-end and built-to-last. The best way to sum up the SL2 is to compare it to a sporty coup roadster: stylish, light, fun, fast, functional, and something others will notice. The trunk isn’t enormous, but it’s not meant to be. It holds everything you really need, plus a couple of extras,  and considering how much fun you have making corners in this car (or making birdies carrying the bag), at the end of the day, you’re going to enjoy the heck out of it.

Forum Thread of the Day: “European Tour looking into an incident involving Matt Wallace and his caddie from the BMW International Open”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day surrounds an incident involving Matt Wallace and his caddie, Dave McNeilly, which occurred on Sunday at the European Tour’s BMW International Open. After hitting a shot in the water on 18, Wallace appeared irate with his caddie, which incensed many of our members, as well as plenty of social media users.

According to bunkered.co.uk, the European Tour stated in an email to the publication that they are looking into the incident over allegations of abuse.

A limited number of clips of the incident have surfaced online.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • buckeyefl: “Sky Sports analyst Rich Beem: ‘I’m sorry, but I just don’t enjoy watching that. I know you’re intense but get over yourself.’”
  • Steele47: “Just looked at Wallace’s twitter. He congratulates the winner Andrea Pavan and also noteworthy, makes a point to compliment Pavan’s caddie. LOL.”
  • OldTomMorris: “It’s a pattern with Wallace that he goes after his caddy so often like this and golf commentators, analysts even fans have picked up on this. There has to be a base level of respect and decency; it appears that Wallace often falls short of that.”
  • golfgirlrobin: “He’s getting roasted on his own Twitter account. People don’t seem that amused.”
