Golf Gifts For Father’s Day 2018

Father’s Day is just a month away, and if you’re like me, you’ll be scrambling for gift ideas two days before. You might pick out a new tie or dress shirt, or perhaps a fancy belt, just to remind him he has work the next day. Well don’t be that son/daughter, get him a gift that he’ll actually want to use and enjoy.

If your dad likes to spend his summer days on the golf course, we have a number of golf training aids that are simple to use, yet provide valuable feedback. To make things easier on you, I’m recommending two of our hottest selling training aids for 2018.

The Hanger Golf Training Aid SwingFirst, we have The Hanger from Watson Golf. This tool is used to promote muscle memory in your swing for consistent, crisp golf shots. From addressing the ball, to your backswing, and follow through, you’ll get a feel for where your arms, hands and wrist should be positioned. It provides feedback at the moment of impact, so you can make sure your hands and club face are in the proper position at impact. It’s super easy to attach to any golf iron, and is available for both right and left handed golfers. Check it out here, along with a video which explains in more detail.

The second product I recommend is The Navigator. This training aid is designed to help with your putting game. This isn’t some fancy contraption that requires a list of directions, a golf pro, and $500 worth of golf lessons. You simply attach it to your putter (works on any putter), and go to work on the putting green. The biggest challenge golfers on all skill levels have when putting is aligning the putter face squarely, and following through on the path intended. Many times, a golfer will read the putt correctly, but when it comes time to putt they don’t hit the ball squarely, resulting in either a pull to the left, or push to right. This tool will help with alignment when both addressing the ball and following through with the putt. Check out it now!

Those are only two options for a golf training aid to get for Father’s Day this year, but there are plenty more at Sports Unlimited in our golf section.  If you’re reading this late and getting something last minute, make sure to check for the “In Stock // Ships Super Fast!” message because all In-Stock Orders Placed before 3PM ET Weekdays will ship out the same day!

Father’s Day Gifts for Sports Dads

If your first memory of dear ol’ Dad is him throwing you in the air (a little too close to the ceiling) when his alma mater scored a fourth quarter touchdown, I think we can safely assume that Father’s Day gifts are a breeeeze to find. That is mainly because there is a treasure trove of trinkets, clothes, and gear with that block M, bulldog, Jayhawk, or whatever emblem signifies his glorious school. There is an endless list of items with that logo right there reminding him of the good ol’ days before you were born. Is he an aspiring grill master in need of a sweet Nittany Lion grill mat? How about a Crimson Tide tailgate canopy? I’m not yet a father, but I’ve started to think about having kids just so they can buy me Michigan gear on Father’s Day. Just kidding, don’t tell Emma.

Imagine this: Daddio sits on the front lawn in a tailgate chair with a cooler of his favorite icy-cold canned beverage (you know what it is) by his feet and a canopy shading him from the summer sun. Next to the canopy is his shiny metal grill (that you sometimes think he cares for more than he does you) and under the grill are the colors and logo of his favorite team. He’s got the window to the house open and through it, he’s turned the living room TV to face out the window and he’s run speakers out so he can have the sound of the TV there with him. He’s grillin’, chillin’, and cheerin’ like the goof you’ve admired and made fun of for your whole life.

Is that the happiest you’ve seen him? Is he giddy with his favorite things on a Saturday afternoon? My guess: yes.

The best part about this vision of your crazy father is that you can actually make it happen. Now that I’ve given you the Don Draper, I’ll be forthright when I say that not only do we want to help you make your dad happy and connect you with him this year, we also want you to make that connection through Sports Unlimited. We’re running a sale for 10% off some of the cool things that will make him happy and you can find those college and pro tailgate gear and mats right at our Father’s Day Sale section.

Make sure you get your shopping done early so it has time to arrive by Father’s Day 2015 (June 21st). And remember, he roots for you just as much as he roots for his team.


Happy Father’s Day

This Sunday, we will recognize one of the biggest supporters in our lives: our fathers. As a family owned company, we at Sports Unlimited value the relationships we have with our families and on this day especially, we are grateful for everything our fathers have done for us.

Family Photo for Father's DayThe smallest things can make all the difference, so why not make this Father’s Day a memorable one? Whether it’s a simple “I love you, dad” or a hand-written card, it will forever be cherished in his heart. Try to think back to your favorite memory you shared with your dad. Maybe it was your first fishing trip, or when he was the coach of your sports team, or more importantly, when he walked you down the aisle on one of the most remarkable days of your life. Whatever it may be, remind him of how special that memory is to you. Spending the time to acknowledge the impact he has made on your life is better than any gift that money could buy.

But, let’s face it; men love their sports and tools. If you are looking to splurge for this Father’s Day, purchasing a small gift for Dad isn’t the worst thing in the world. Maybe you could even buy him something that relates to your cherished memory or perhaps you could try to find something that will be used during your time spent together that day. It could be a day filled with golfing, barbecuing, hiking, etc. However you wish to express your gratitude to dad, remember that the sincerest gift comes from the heart. As one of our Founding Father’s once said, “happiness depends more on the inward disposition than on outward circumstance.” –Benjamin Franklin

Sports Unlimited wishes all families a Happy Father’s Day that is filled with love and memories.
