Sure, there are countless drivers, putters and wedges that would be nice to add to the bag, but we are here to spotlight items you might not have otherwise thought of but would be more than happy to have.
— Admittedly, this is a luxury item, but the True Links “Shoe Bag” is not your run of the mill sack used to get your kicks from place to place. The “Shoe Bag” is water resistant and includes a shoulder strap, tablet sleeve, valuables pouch and an organizational unit. For $45, it’s stylish and can also double as a gym bag.
— The use of greens guides has trickled down from the PGA Tour to the amateur game, and “The Book” by PuttView is the runaway winner as the game’s best. PuttView provides golf’s most detailed yardage book and greens maps for more than 8,000 courses, including Myrtle Beach’s best layouts. If you are looking to get an edge for your 2021 golf trip, “The Book,” which retails for $50 will not disappoint.
— Covid-19 has forced many people to begin working out at home (or convinced them to begin exercising for the first time) and golfers looking for a quality accessory need to check out the TRX Slam Ball. Ranging in weight from 8 to 25 pounds, the Slam Ball can help build strength, cardio and explosive power, all of which will help improve your golf game. The $45 Slam Ball is durable, easy to use and specializes in core strength.
— The ultimate golf Christmas gift? The Rewards Package, a 4-round deal that allows golfers to choose among 21 of Myrtle Beach’s best courses, including TPC Myrtle Beach, Grande Dunes, Pawleys Plantation and Pine Lakes. Best of all, players receive a $100 gift card good for use anywhere in the clubhouse or with the beverage cart. The Rewards Package is Myrtle Beach’s premier golf package.
— If you are stuck inside this winter and desperate to improve your putting, the Perfect Practice Putting Mat is a must-have. Golfers can work on putts ranging from 8 to 15 feet, allowing you to groove your stroke. The Perfect Practice Putting Mat claims to be used by more than 100 PGA Tour pros, including World No. 1 and Masters champion, Dustin Johnson, and it can be yours for $169.99.
