Let's hear it!? What's on your Christmas (golf) wish list this year?

If you don't celebrate Christmas, sub out that word with "holiday" or whatever else that makes sense, even if that word is "December" or "end of the year"?

I need a Ping G 3 wood, currently have Titleist and it feels different than the rest of my irons and driver.  I assume I'd get better consistency with all Ping products at this point.

I already got my Mizuno MP 67's a lil earlier in the year so I am asking Santa for some Mizuno wedges.  I think a 52 & 58 will do.  Looking to find some quality older ones.  I dont really like the 2 or 3 new models out this year, the MP T5, S5 or T7.  What is with the anodized blue this year???

Looking for MP T or MP T11 or MP T12.

I need a simple putting mat to practice during the winter indoors with consistently starting my putting on-line. This hasn't been too much of a problem for me but I think it would be good to use during the winter. Most of my problem is speed control. I'm thinking the SKLZ mat with ball return for my office. That has SOME speed control element.

I'm good on clubs, bag, cart, and everything else :)

1. I want some fleece lined ski pants, or something similar, to play or hit balls in the cold. Not anything real bulky, I don't want to look like I am wearing a diaper under my pants... If anybody has any ideas, where to get this, that is #1 on my Christmas golf list.

2. A couple of truly free afternoons from my duties at home, so I can just relax and play 18 (I never have enough time to play 18)

3. More Volvik Vivids (Green)

The only product in my bag that is due for a replacement soon is going to be my rangefinder (readout is missing some lines half the time) so I will get one of those soon.  Otherwise, boring "accessory" type stuff; balls (Snell MyTour, Callaway Chrome Soft, and Titleist Prov1, the latter for $39.99/dozen monogrammed), gloves, maybe a new towel, and I could use a new bristle brush.

Oh, probably ready for a few new sweaters too. :)

Christmas AND Hanukkah at our house every year, so it's always a gold mine! :beer:  (Well, for the kids it is)

For me it's all about giving and watching the smiles of joy of my recipient's. Especially the youngsters. 

However for me, another 12 months of golf will work quite well. I'm sure I will recieve some golf stuff from friends and family. The reality is,  I have all the golf gear I actually need. :-)

I am a frugal golfer.  For decades I have purchased good but inexpensive golf stand bags.  I have always coveted Sun Mountain stand bags but couldn't face spending $200+.  Recently a review on the Sun Mountain 2.5 caught my eye.  Since I walk and carry, 2.5 pounds sounded great.  Pulled the trigger a week ago and my wife can wrap it up & put it under the tree - I doubt I will need it until March. ;-)

Christmas came a bit early,

Mine did too. I wanted a newer style of cart cover this year.
Mrs. Claus surprised me with a new Encompass Cart Cover last week.
I went out today and played, it was a chilly 39* outside, inside cart temp with heater on low, a toasty 62*

Range finder.  Ideas?

All of the Bushnell range finders are good as are the Leupold.   This year I bought a Leupold GX-2i2.   It has a slope feature that can be turned off if so desired.   I really like it.

Want or getting? I will go with the realistic answer. I think I want a new Revolver bag, moving away from the Sun Mountain bag, Hopefully the Revolver will handle the walking cart better.

I already replaced the irons, the wedges and the golf bag earlier in the year (they all needed it!). And because I needed a putter to leave with the older clubs/bag at the other house, I went on callawaypreowned.com during CyberWeek, and got 2 nice used putters for the price of one! :dance:

So, I am really set, but if anything could strike my fancy, it would be that GameGolf Live thingie... Who knows? Maybe Santa will feel like dropping it in the chimney? :-)

Got a Garmin S2 Approach GPS watch. I have Callaway rangefinder - which is great for calibrating average club distance. Also for helping out with USGA course ratings.

But, rangefinder is too much hassle to use on course, especially when half the rounds last year were "cart path only,"

Less than perfect drives will leave me with blind shots on home course, so GPS will be easier than trying to walk back up hill with rangefinder and interpolate distance. Overall, distance to front - center - back is more than sufficient for someone struggling to break 90. I just have to scope out pin position if green is unusually large.

S2 also gives clearance distance for hazards, and can be used to measure distance of drive.

Got it on sale (Thanksgiving early) for $99 - original MSRP was $299. Hope to use it once in 2016 if a warm day arises.

Got a pair of new footjoys season ending sale with discounts and golf certificates I got a $125.00 pair for $40.00.  They are going under the tree for me from my wife.  Bought a Cleveland Classic 3 wood.  Great pristine shape. Good good deal! Needed a reliable 3 wood. It is going under the tree for me from the grandkids.  I find now, that like my wife for years has done and said. Be VERY specific, don't beat around and give "aw shucks, I don't need anything really answers."  That's when you get ties and socks.
