Mother's Day: Flowers are nice, fairway fashion is better
(NC)-While moms love receiving flowers and chocolates you may want to consider changing things around this year with the gift of golf, a great way to stay active while spending time outdoors with family and friends.
Whether mom is a dedicated golfer or is just taking up the game, a shopping list for Mother's Day that includes golf equipment and accessories tailored specifically to women is a wonderful gift.
"Over the years, I've worked with many women who have commented how much of an improvement they noticed by using equipment designed specifically for them and their proportions," said Barry Wallis, performance and golf education manager at Callaway Golf Canada. "The differences between men's and women's golf equipment lie not only in differing body proportions," Wallis adds. "Weight distribution in the club, the flexibility of the shaft, and the loft on the club face are all taken into consideration."
For equipment tailored just for mom, Wallis noted that Callaway Golf offers a range of women-specific equipment including the GEMS set and the Odyssey Divine line of putters.
The GEMS set, a complete set of clubs, is ideal for moms just getting into the game, or the occasional, high-handicap player looking to play better golf. The line features weighting that promotes higher trajectories to help keep the ball in the air for longer distances.
If you purchase mom a 2008 driver or eight-piece set of clubs between April 1 and July 31, 2008, she can benefit from a free 30-minute golf lesson from a Canadian Professional Golf Association pro this year, thanks to a partnership between the CPGA and Callaway Golf.
On the putting green, Odyssey's Divine Line was designed for the female putting stroke while keeping style in mind. The Divine Line includes the three most popular putters: the 2-ball, Marxman, and Rossie.
For anyone looking for a stylish gift, Callaway also offers a range of fashionable women's golf shoes such as the Chev UL, which can do double duty - they can worn both on and off the course, perfect for the busy mom on the go.
Golf fashions and accessories, synonymous with a tailored, crisp look, are often used in everyday life, and Callaway Golf offers a wide range of headwear, bags, and totes. Many pieces feature Swarovski crystals subtly incorporated into their design, to add a bit of extra sparkle to golf and other lifestyle activities.
For gift ideas, mycallaway.ca offers an online tool where mom can personalize her Wish List and email it to family to ensure she receives the perfect golf gift this Mother's Day.
