This is the second column of our look at gifts for golfers covering a wide range of prices. Since it’s the week of Thanksgiving, the traditional time for some serious gifting thoughts, we think you will find some possibilities here whether you are buying for your spouse or boss or whoever.
In most instances we are very familiar with the items we are recommending and have not only tried out and enjoyed them ourselves or solicited opinions from others. For several of the equipment products we have even spent time seriously testing to ensure we really are comfortable including them in our list.
As always, comments in the holiday spirit will be cheerfully read.
