You all can buy me anything you want.

Oh wait ... you weren't talking about me?

My serious answer is (true of all gifts) that it certainly doesn't hurt to ask.  I like getting something I want/need better than getting a surprise.  Although my wife is pretty good at gifts so it's usually both.

Not this year though ... I'm getting new Ecco golf shoes!  And I'm playing (with the father in law) on Saturday too so I hope I get them a day early!

A round of golf at a course of his liking.  Usually you can go to the golf course and buy a "gift card" for a round.

Forget the equipment, I am sure he would like a "free" round of golf and a cold beer afterwards.

My father in law is getting a skycaddie sg5 (i found it for $135 with free shipping.) We are also going out to play a round that day that he is paying for since I am already in trouble for sneaking behind his back and paying the last bill.

My dad is fighting cancer (and winning, treatment went well and he is doing better), as well as a new fake knee, so he can't walk 18 anymore. So my brother, sister, and I bought him a Clubcar 4 man (front and rear facing seats)Golf Cart with a 19hp honda engine (not original, he said the other one was too noisy, but he did give us the spare engine)), and paid the storage fee's at the golf club. total price, 2250$. 2000 for the cart, tax in, 48$ licensing fees, and 190 for storage for the summer. A great deal.

It is of course, to be used by my brother and I also. My sister does not golf. But the Cart belongs to dad. It was used, and we got a great deal. Nobody has used it yet, we haven't shown it to him, but when I picked it up, it had some pep.

Best wishes to your family ApocG10. Getting my pops a real driver fitting. He's taken many lessons in his life and is a 7 handicap.but he has never had a fitting. And after I just had my first one, I am a firm believer.

If my younger brother has to work ill be taking my dad out for a round at a nice course around here. If my brother doesn't have to work I think we may spend the day at the shooting range. Dad loves shooting guns and my brother can't swing a golf club to save his life lol.

I prefer not to get golf related items as gifts.  With that said, I'll never complain if somebody gives me a dozen Pro-V1x's.  Steer clear of clubs and gadgets unless they are specifically requested.

Everyone should get fit, I haven't seen anyone walk away from a fitting NOT a true believer.

I wish my Dad golfed.  He used to years ago but hasn't gone in  probably 15 years and he doesn't want to.  This is my first fathers day and I'd like either a gift card or a dozen balls.  No equipment unless I specifically ask for something.

I saw a cool gizmo at Barnes & Noble the other day, that I'm considering getting for my dad.  It was a golf bag with 3 "clubs" in it.  But the clubs were different colored pens, so obviously the golf bag is the size of a coffee cup and it seems to fit almost anywhere.  I mean nobody ever really needs more pens, but this is cool considering he likes to golf a lot with his spare time.

My dad's Father's Day tradition:  BBQ, eat, play cribbage, pass out in front of the TV for the rest of the afternoon -- what's on the TV?  The U.S. Open.  Every year.

    • Day 480: Did some work on priority piece with 8-iron, and then hit some driver with Mevo. 
    • I had a putt and it was windy that day with crusty fast greens. I had a 10 foot birdie putt and I lipped it out and had 8 inches left. I did not mark it. I walked up, took my time, and when I took the putter back and as I changed directions the ball moved at least 4 mm and I don't really know for sure whether I hit it while it was moving or not. I gave myself a penalty even thought he rule of the ball moving has changed. If I did not cause the ball to move there is no penalty and I did not cause this ball to move. But what is the rule if you actually hit the ball while it moves? Or even if it stopped moving and you hit it without placing the ball back in it's original spot. 
    • Day 94 (10 Apr 21) - Played 36 today, flew solo, so there was plenty opportunity to work with club selection, shot types...big focus was approach shots, esp from 150yds in. Worked on approach shot scenarios - based on distance out, and what club combo would work best.  Good day of field application of the LSR guiding principles....
    • Wow...matsuyama winning would be huge. 😒 He’s going to have a pull a Greg Norman to lose. 
    • A first for me as I played 36 today - flying solo (used a golf cart as my foot would not let me walk that far) so it was pretty quick playing. This was at the other local course that I will spend a lot of time at this year.  Rd 1 was an 88 (45/43, 7/14 fairways, 37 putts) - big takeaway, driver was consistent, putting okay - greens are still lumpy, bumpy, irons inconsistent). Rd 2 was a 93 (46/47, 10/14 fairways, 34 putts) complete with a birdie on 2. Putting was more consistent.  With the course’s greens in less than optimal shape, approaches bordered on serious pin hunting. Side note - played up one set of tees in 2nd rd - to see if there would be a significant score change.  Overall an enjoyable time of working through shot scenarios and seeing what worked and what didn’t.
