Father’s Day is rapidly approaching and if you are scrambling for gift ideas, look no further. Below is a list our favorite must haves for 2022.
If your dad has complained of tightness in his back or sore muscles send Theragun to the rescue. Percussion therapy will ease aches and pains and limber up the body to make nice full golf swings. Theragun overs several models. The Mini is compact enough to fit in every golf bag while the Prime is ideal for home use.
Editor Note: For the last year, our staff has used the Theragun before and during each round. A few minutes massaging the hamstrings and IT bands provides relief for our aging backs.

Galway Bay Rain Gear
If your father dreams of traveling to play in Ireland, Scotland or at Bandon Dunes, he’s going to want to bring quality rain gear. Galway Bay’s premium rainwear has been named the best for 2019 and 2021 by MyGolfSpy’s panel of reviewers. That’s because it’s awesome – looks, feels and performs great. Your father deserves the best, and this is it.
The All-Weather Short Sleeve Jacket uses the brand’s proprietary Hydro-Flex 32 fabric – golf’s most breathable waterproof technology. It’s strong and durable, without any bulk – just like your Dad back in his heyday. And it blocks the wind, too. The design moves with the body, so he can swing comfortably. And now it’s even more lightweight and stretchy, but with the same level of waterproofness and breathability (15k/15k). And he won’t sweat inside, either. Its collar is high in the back but tapers down to 1.25” towards the front, so it won’t poke him in the chin – a thoughtful detail that elevates his golf experience. It also features waterproof sealed seams and zippers, which he will completely appreciate in a downpour.
Editor Note: Every golfer including your dad has a golf rain jacket. So why this one or why another jacket? Almost every golfer has a big thick bulk jacket. A short sleeve rain jacket is perfect for warmer days. It also is much more freeing to swing without all the bulk. A short sleeve rain jacket will be well received.
