Still looking for some good golf-related Christmas gifts? Here are some of my favorites:
Cindy Miller Golf
Cindy Miller, one of the more celebrated female instructors in golf, has unveiled “The Learn to Hit Kit,’’ designed for the busy person who needs to learn to play golf and doesn’t have the time to go to the range. It’s a great training aid that helps aspiring golfers learn to hit it clean, airborne, and straight on purpose, virtually anywhere – the backyard, living room, front porch, or even in a hotel room. www.cindymillergolf.com.
The “kit” includes a portable golf mat, foam practice balls, Miler’s Golf 101 book, a coupon for 10 percent off any Callaway golf club, and access to “The Learn To Hit It Kit” (www.learntohititkit.com) online course.
