Well, it’s that time of year again – no not your annual visit to the proctologist – it’s Father’s Day. Time for the golf tie salesmen of the world to rejoice in unison and start pulling out all of last year’s styles that never sold because, well they were god-awful ugly to be honest.

Let’s put in the effort and try to surprise dear old dad with something nice this year. Come on, he’s earned it.

Here are a few ideas to get you rolling.

  1. TRUE gent wingtip ($149.99; truelinkswear.com):A premium Italian leather upper, waterproof protection, great traction, and comfort all wrapped in a classic look and style, TRUE’s gent wingtip is available in five colors.
  2. Big Bertha Tour Authentic Staff Bag ($399; callawaygolf.com): Dad has carried you for years, so why should he have to carry his own bag? Callaway’s 12-pound Big Bertha Tour Staff Bag will let him announce his presence when he pulls up to the bag drop at the club. A six-way top with velour-wrapped dividers keeps clubs safe and sound during the round while ten pockets, including one velour-lined for valuables, provide plenty of storage space. The bag also comes with a rain hood, umbrella holder, and flux capacitor courtesy of Doc Brown.
  3. Bettinardi Signature Series 7 Putter ($495; bettinardi.com):Crafted from “double aged stainless steel” and created in a limited run as a tribute to Robert Bettinardi’s father, Donald, the Signature 7 provides an eye-catching traditional design packed with the tremendous feel and performance you’ve grown to expect from anything Bettinardi stamps its name on.
  4. Bushnell NEO XS GPS Rangefinder Watch ($199; bushnellgolf.com): With no membership fees or download charges, the NEO XS is a valuable sidekick to have out on the course. The watch, which provides up to four layup/hazard distances per hole, is comfortable to wear and comes preloaded with more than 33,000 courses in over 30 countries.
  5. adidas ClimaChill Polo ($75; taylormadegolf.com/adidasgolf): Thanks to the wizards at adidas, you’ll never get hot under the collar again after missing a short putt. Designed to help regulate body temps, adidas Golf says its climaChill fabric, which delivers a cooling sensation when in contact with skin via small round metallic dots located in the back neck area, is “the most breathable material the company has ever incorporated into its apparel lines.”
