These products are going to make dad extremely happy on Father’s Day this June 19th!
Daphne’s has the most tantalizing array and collection of over 175 head covers for everyone.
Each cover is a work of art.
You might not hit it like Tiger, but your bag can look like his when he was a 21-year-old, slipping on a green jacket. It is definitely a conversation piece.
Made out of the highest quality materials, the headcover fits up to a 460 cc driver and is guaranteed for life.
Join over 300 professional golfers on the PGA and LPGA Tours that carry Daphne’s Headcovers on their golf bags.
Become a PGTAA Professional Golf Teacher
$995.00 Home Study Course
Isn’t dad always telling you how much he loves golf, has the knack for teaching golf, especially kids, and would like to change this life’s direction?
Well, now he can by enrolling in the PGTAA’s Home Study Course.
The Professional Golf Teachers Association of America has been certifying both men and women golf teachers since 1997.
Amongst its many graduate members are the likes of Gary Gilchrist, Mark Immelman, and Michael Kletz, all of who are very highly regarded both for their teaching skills and clientele.
PGTAA graduates can also be found at many well-known golf courses, such as Pebble Beach and Torrey Pines, and at many universities, such as Columbus State, GA, Waynesburg University, PA, and Brevard College, NC, to name a few. I am personally involved with the PGTAA.

Club Champion Club Fitters
Golf experience for Father’s Day: the world’s top club fitter, Club Champion, offers a Tour-level custom fitting experience, and they would love to be a part of any gift lists or round-ups planned for this Father’s Day!
Whether dad is an avid golfer or a casual player, a gift card to Club Champion can help improve his game this Father’s Day. Don’t miss out on a 15% bonus up to $1,000 on Club Champion gift cards — that offer ends June 19, 2022. Gift cards can be purchased in stores or online at clubchampion.com.
Club Champion’s unique approach is brand agnostic; they focus on the golfer and not the manufacturer. This tactic allows them to give each customer a unique and informative experience that renders real results on the course. Speaking of results, a Golf Digest study found that eight out of nine Club Champion custom-fit golfers lowered their scores by as much as six strokes per round and added an average of 21 yards off the tee. A custom fitting is the gift that keeps on giving.
Plus, Club Champion works with exclusive golf retailer, The Vault, for unique, limited-release items like custom Fujikura Ventus colorways that dad will love.

New Balance Fresh Foam X Defender SL Shoe
Looking for the most comfortable golf shoe? Any dad appreciates a comfortable shoe. I personally wear these shoes and my feet thank me!
New Balance Golf has added the Spikeless Fresh Foam X Defender SL to its performance footwear collection for 2022. The 12.2 oz. waterproof, spikeless Fresh Foam X Defender SL features a soft, supportive, adaptable Fresh Foam insole. Fresh Foam is comprised of unique geometric shapes of differing sizes that provide ultra-cushioned, cloud-like feel, while simultaneously stabilizing the perimeter of the foot to keep you planted throughout the golf swing.
The waterproof Defender is built on a Fantom Fit skeletally engineered upper with an exoskeleton TPU outsole. In tandem, these two technologies offer ultralight support that moves with the natural motion of your foot. The vertical convex geometric shapes on the medial side provide exceptional walking stability and support under the arch of the foot.
Cush+ is a foam compound used for the insole, which provides an ultra-soft, cushioned feel. Golfers will notice how comfortable the insole is as soon as they slip their foot into the shoe.
The Fresh Foam X Defender SL has a waterproof microfiber leather/performance mesh upper. The spikeless, smart rubber outsole incorporates pressure mapping colors, highlighting key performance zones.
Colours available are White, Black/Grey, Navy/Blue, and Grey/Red. As for sizes, New Balance offers 8-12, 13, 14, with widths of D, 2E and 4E.
Not only is there a two-year limited waterproof warranty, there is also a 45-day comfort warranty.
Logo Chip Business Cards
I use these logo chips for the PGTAA, PGA TOUR players, and for my golf writing business cards. Of course, I also use them as ball markers.
The response is always complimentary and golfers are enamored with the chips.
As a holiday special, ask for the FREE 100 chips when speaking to Mike.
Why continue handing out paper business cards when business card chips can be all in 1?
This is now your business card for golf ball marker for clients, tee gift to sponsor golf tourneys, event giveaway, magnetic chips for advertising (only $0.20 more), and promo- redeemable coupon chips.
