Molner’s Picks: The Best Gear for Your Golf Game

Picture yourself teeing off at Augusta with one of these products

Molner, here — It’s no secret that I’m a bit of a golf nut. For fans like me, it’s one of the holiest weeks in sports. Players are set to tee off today at the Augusta National course for the 85th Masters Tournament. Like most things, the tournament will look a little different this year — with limited patrons due to the pandemic. Tiger Woods, a five-time Masters champion, will also be missing. The golf star is still recovering from injuries suffered in a severe car wreck back in February. I spoke with PGA tour physician Dr. Ara Suppiah about whether Woods’ injury could be career-ending.

In honor of the Masters, I’ve decided to share some of my favorite picks for when I hit the links. Treat a golf nut or yourself with one of these gifts that are sure to please. 

#1 Hyperlight Glide Sneakers

I’ve always had trouble finding a shoe that is both comfortable and good-looking. These Peter Millar sneakers are just that. The Hyperlight Glide comes in three different colors and can take you from the office to a weekend outing. They’re lightweight and feature a durable outsole and foam insole to give your feet the best comfort. These will not disappoint.

#2 Bombas Performance Socks

There’s nothing worse than getting blisters from a long round of 18 holes. Treat your feet with a pair of Bombas socks. This pair was designed for running — made with a soft cotton material and feature padded blister guards on the heels. The best part? Bombas will donate one new pair of socks to a homeless shelter for every pair purchased, so you can feel good about what’s on your feet.

#3 Golf Polo

Peter Millar makes one of my favorite golf polos. It was designed to be worn on and off the course and features a moisture-wicking, four-way-stretch material. It comes in a range of colors, but I have my eyes on this Lunar Blue style. It even includes UPF 50+ sun protection for added coverage during your next round in the sun.

#4 Get Mr. The Daily

I never hit the course without my sunscreen. I’ve been using The Daily by Get Mr., an up-and-coming men’s health brand. This is not your typical sunscreen. It’s a face lotion, aftershave, and an SPF 30 all packed in one bottle. It will simplify your morning routine, and it’s mineral-based formula will protect your skin from the sun for hours.

Stay hydrated on (and off) the course with this Yeti Rambler. We’ve recommended it once, and we’ll recommend it again. It’s made from stainless steel and features a double-wall vacuum insulation that will keep cold beverages cold and hot beverages hot until the very last sip. As an added bonus, it’s dishwasher safe for easy clean-up.
