Give dad some direction on the course this Father's Day
(NC)-Many dads are often hesitant to stop and ask for directions on that annual family trip, but most will be the first to appreciate some direction on the golf course.
From professional golf lessons and custom fitting to testing out the latest in golf technology, there is something for every golf-loving dad this Father's Day to help him enjoy the summer.
For any dad who loves to get out on the links, there could be no gift more personalized than a custom golf club fitting session.
"There is no doubt that a customized club will help your golf swing, and even more importantly, your golf score," says Barry Wallis, golf performance and education manager at Callaway Golf Canada.
Callaway Golf operates five Performance Centres in Canada - Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto, Montreal, and PEI.
If dad is in the market for a new set of clubs this year, he can also benefit from a free 30-minute golf lesson with a CPGA pro if he purchases a 2008 driver or a set of irons this summer between April and July.
Whether thinking of purchasing a club for dad, or simply having him go through the fitting experience to learn about his swing and the best products to optimize his game, Wallis is sure he would have a memorable Father's Day.
In addition to custom-fitting for golf clubs at the Callaway Golf Performance Centres, visitors can also be fitted for Odyssey putters, the #1 putter in golf.
Custom fitting for putters is often overlooked despite it being the most used club in any golfer's bag.
If a trip to a Performance Centre is not possible, Wallis is sure the hands-on dad would appreciate a visit to a Demo Day at a local golf course, where he'll be able to test out the latest technology for free and get advice on the best clubs for his stance and swing.
This year, Callaway Golf is offering Demo Days at public courses and driving ranges across Canada. Details and dates can be found at www.mycallaway.ca.
For gift ideas, mycallaway.ca also offers an online tool where dad can create and personalize his own Wish List, then email it to family to ensure he receives the perfect golf gift this Father's Day.
