With Father’s Day approaching fast, not only is getting out to play a round of golf on the top of Dad’s list, but so are the latest gadgets.
At GolfTalk Live, it is our job to make sure dad has a wish-list filled with the best golf products. Here is the 2014 Father’s Day gift guide:
Alphard Duo Golf Cart
This is a golf bag and push cart combined.
With a two-step setup, go from the trunk to the course in seconds. Packed with an assortment of features offering unparalleled convenience and comfort, The Duo Cart is 30% more compact than a standard full-size golf bag – and it will also fit with ease in a standard golf travel bag.

Bridgestone Golf Balls
Bridgestone goes to great lengths to ensure players are hitting the proper ball. The e6, along with their entire premium line of golf balls are made in the U.S.A. Leading up to July 4th, there will be special red, white and blue packaging to celebrate U.S. Production of the e6.
Go to a Bridgestone Ball Fitting live and in person, or use their data on www.bridgestonegolf.com to determine which ball is the correct one to be playing.
Linda Hartough Golf Landscapes
9th Hole at Pinehurst No. 2 Painting and Green Glory: A Visual Tribute to the Courses of the Majors
This year’s 9th Hole at Pinehurst No. 2 print is the 25th and last image in Linda Hartough’s U.S. Open series commissioned by the USGA. This collector’s item starts at $225 unframed and in various print types.
Green Glory: A Visual Tribute to the Courses of the Majors is a coffee table sized publication featuring all of the courses where majors have been held since 1950. The text, images and paintings are by Linda Hartough, and the photographic images are by Patrick Drickey.
The book costs $75, and both items can be found at www.hartough.com.
Original Mantis Mallet Putter
New Mantis “B” Blade Putter
Mantis putters were a “Tony’s Top 10” winner, as selected by GolfTalk Live host Tony Leodora, and featured in “Eddie’s Closet,” as previewed by Eddie Caiazzo. The Mantis line of putters have a patented green finish to match the color of the green. This is to maximize attention to the ball and line of the putt. Both putters produce a smoother putting stroke with more consistent results.
Both putters are only $159.99 each, and available at www.mantisgolfco.com
