We look at the best options this December, avoiding novelty ball cleaners, joke items and all those other gifts that all too often clutter the golfing Christmas cracker.
BOOK – The Lost Art of Putting
Written by Gary Nichol and Karl Morris this insightful guide brings fun (and one putts) back into your life on the greens.
There is a clarity of thought about it which is something of a relief given that so often golf advice seems to plunge the player into a dark hole of over-thinking it.
Nichol is the golf pro, Morris comes at it from a sports psychology angle; between them they provide simple principles that can transform your performance on the putting green.
In addition to the straightforward advice there is input from other experts in their field which permits even further understanding of the game within a game.

GADGET – The Drysure Shoe Dryer
There are few things less fun after a wet day on the course than dealing with your shoes because who has ever found a genuinely good way of getting them dry again?
Old newspaper leaves them damp, putting them in a hot place often leads to damage, and who hasn’t forgotten they were wet and discovered them in a terrible mess a few weeks later?
Drysure’s brilliance is not that it is effective (it is), but that it is so simple. Silica oxide beads in a bean bag are placed inside a foot-shaped holder and absorbs moisture from the shoes.
There is no need for heat and no need for power either, so you can travel with them and also keep them at hand for immediate transfer into the shoes. You get about six to ten uses of the Drysures and then there is a straightforward re-activation process using the oven. Simple and effective.
Welcome to Drysure … a new era in footwear drying. Discover more at https://t.co/3rxArsbS3J #Drysure #Skiing #Snowboarding #IceHockey #Running #Gym #Football #Golf #Cycling #FootCare 👣 pic.twitter.com/jUFkbPjYuc
