Best Gifts For The Tech Obsessed Golfer

In recent years, technology has become more and more a part of the game of golf. From rangefinders to launch monitors, it is hard to go to a golf course nowadays without seeing someone loaded up with all of the latest gadgets and gizmos. However, with so many pieces of technology on the market, it can be hard to choose the best one. Well, no need to worry. We have put together a list of our favorite gifts for your tech obsessed golfer.

Wearing A Mouthpiece Can Improve Your Golf Game

So, you’ve taken lessons, changed your clubs and your grips and have studied videos to improve your game. Wearing a custom-made mouthpiece might be the added piece of equipment to improve your game by maximizing strength and power. That’s the opinion of Rob Charlton, a Canadian entrepreneur, whose company, New Age Performance, is marketing a molded mouthpiece that can enhance performance by properly aligning the jaw.

Don’t Drive Yourself Crazy With Your Driver

Have you ever gone to a range or the practice area at a golf club and noticed how many people are working on their driving? Despite the fact drivers may be needed only 14 times on a standard 18-hole course, they have a particular fascination with golfers, particularly hackers or those who play only a few times a year. There is something fantastic about standing on a mat or on the grass and blasting away to see how far a ball can be driven. If it goes straight and true and beyond 200 yards, it's a great feeling of pride. If it’s sliced or hooked, it’s the surest way to, well, drive you crazy.

Master Your Short Game

  Another exciting Masters is in the books. Massive drives, precise approaches, broken hearts and putting prowess were on full display at Augusta National. But if you’ve paid close attention to the tradition unlike any other throughout the years, there’s one thing you’ve probably noticed…every Masters champ shares one thing in common: a masterful short game. The humps and bumps of Augusta National demand imagination and perfection around the greens.  Remember Tiger Woods’ epic chip-in on the par-3 16th in 2005 which catapulted him to his fourth green jacket? How about in 1987 when Larry Mize’s pitch shot on the par-4 11th found the bottom of the cup to beat Greg Norman in a playoff? Mastering your short game will shave strokes off your round immediately, so the LostGolfBalls team is here to help with three basic shots that will turn you into a master around the greens.

Stay Loose Under Pressure

With temperature gauges rising, golfers across America are starting to come out of hibernation.  While getting your gear ready to go is a top priority, equally important is prepping your body. Many teachers will tell you the golf swing actually starts well before you get to the course.  Swinging a golf club is a very physical and violent action.  To get your body firing properly you have to produce powerful movements, rotate strenuously around your spine, and put amazing amounts of pressure on joints, ligaments and tendons.

Nothing will sink a round quicker than poor play off the tee, so here are a few tips on gaining the distance and accuracy to ensure you’re setting the table for low scores.
