Golf gift guide, holiday season 2021: Gear, clubs and data-driven technology dominates this winter

It’s the holiday season, which means it’s time for the golfer in your life to start stocking up for 2022. Golf has been thriving over the past few years, especially as an outdoor activity, and we’ve put together a great collection of gear, accessories and products that should be a delight to anyone obsessed with the game.

Not all of these are necessarily specific to playing a round of golf, but all of them are built by companies who care about the game and want to make it more fun to play. Let’s take a look at Part 1 of our golf holiday gift guide!

Mizzen+Main Leeward Dress Shirt ($125): Phil Mickelson was right, the shirts are good. While this is not a golf-exclusive product, it’s still an amazing fit and has become probably my favorite dress shirt I own. Could not recommend more highly.

Rapsodo Mobile Launch Monitor ($399): This is a tremendous alternative to the wildly-priced launch monitors pros use that none of the rest of us can afford. It takes your iOS device and measures things like distance, club speed, ball speed and launch angle. All with a tiny, mobile, easy-to-use device. The Rapsodo mobile launch monitor is $100 off on Amazon, the Rapsodo website and at retailers for the remainder of December.

Lululemon Down Fr It All Hoodie ($195): Lulu has recently made a bigger push into the golf world, and I’m glad for that. A lot of my friends wear their gear to play — especially some of the joggers and polos — and this jacket fits into that category as well. Roomy enough to swing a club but warm and snug enough to keep you comfortable throughout an entire round. I haven’t found much from Lululemon

This 25-Minute Bodyweight Workout Routine for the Holiday Season

We all endured a wild 2021, and you might have managed to make muscle gains along the way, too. Through another year of ups and downs, you still managed to make your health and fitness a priority—and even if you didn’t, it’s never too late to start.

Whether you’re looking to maintain those gains through the ultra-busy holiday season or start a brand new healthy habit, you’ll be able to get the most out of a little time with these two circuits. The first pushes your legs to learn key movement patterns; the second builds the upper-body strength you need.

Do them three times a week to be primed for 2022 and beyond.

Directions: You’ll do 2 circuits in this workout. Do 5 rounds of the first circuit, resting 60 seconds between each round. Rest 2 minutes, then do 5 rounds of the second circuit, again resting 60 seconds between each round.

Start standing. Place your hands on the floor in front of you. Keeping your core tight, walk them forward until you’re in pushup position. (This will stretch your hamstrings.) Lower into a pushup and glue your chest to the floor. Lift your left leg and touch your foot on your right side, stretching your hips. Repeat with your right leg. Push up, then walk back to standing, warming up your abs. That’s 1 rep; do 5.
