Not sure how many will actually give these gifts, but chances are these are things you will wind up having to ask to receive.
'Alignment Golf' DVD - Lynn Blake & VJ Trolio
An excellent DVD series featuring TGM based instruction on the Full Swing, Short Game and Putting. I get constant feedback on how the 'drills' section and the putting section is almost invaluable. A very fine piece of work. $79.95.
David Orr's Green Reading 101 and 201 videos
The videos on how to read greens featuring AimPoint Golf's Mark Sweeney which provides a fascinating look at how to read greens to make more putts. Some revolutionary stuff going on here. Total cost $49.99.
'Confessions of a Former Flipper' DVD by Brian Manzella
IMO, the greatest value video in Golf Instruction. Learn the ins and outs of why golfers flip and how to stop it. Tons of great drills, swing thoughts and feels and concepts. Web version is only $9.99.
Re-Chromed Clubs from The Iron Factory
If you want your current clubs or clubs from the past to look like new, check them into the Iron Factory. The Iron Factory can not only re-shaft, change lofts and lies and re-chrome clubs. But the Iron Factory can also provide a Satin Finish, customized paintfills, re-grooving and initialize the clubs for you. Take a look at a couple of these beauties that the Iron Factory has re-chromed.
If I ever got the money available, I'd love to get some old Hogan Blades (I love both the Redline and the 1+ Blades) and get them the rebuilt. A total rebuild includes new steel shaft, grip, balance, polish, blast, rechrome, repaint all lettering and new ferrules and costs about $50 a club. If you include changing lie/loft and re-grooving, it's about $65 a club.
The Taly was awarded 3Jack's Training Aid of the year. Fantastic training aid for eliminating the flip once and for all and can help with swing plane and club path. Costs $70.
The Tour Striker
The Tour Striker is a great training aid for getting golfers to have a steep enough attack angle which greatly helps the golfer eliminate the flip and compress the golf ball.
