Gift him the experience of getting fitted and buying new club. DO NOT buy clubs for him.

It’s like a tie. Don’t buy them for him, give a gift certificate or take him shopping.

Eh. I agree on not doing clubs.

Tie isn’t a big deal. There’s room for many on the closet representing a range of tastes and occasions.

It’s best if he goes and gets “fitted” for the clubs. Maybe give a gift card for that?

All of the above are correct - take him for a fitting and pay for the clubs he chooses

So, I had planned to have a gift waiting in his hotel room, and he’s going golfing. Soooo the whole fitting/gift card idea won’t work. While I have you all here, any ideas??

My SO is golf-obsessed, and I got him the Garmin Approach S-60 watch - it’s a range finder in a watch. He LOVEs it. He had previously received a hand-held range finder and lost it when he put it down and forgot to pick it up. There may be a newer model, since I got him the watch last December.

Safest bet if you really want to get clubs is a set of wedges. He can have them bent and the shafts cut and gripped. Volkeys or Cleveland. Don’t get the chrome finish.

I’d take a picture of that wedges he currently has and then get the equivalent lofts.

What’s ur budget if u don’t mind sharing

Agreed with everything about the clubs...even if he doesn't get fitted, he should at least hit the clubs first.

In terms of smaller, lower risk items: head covers, golf balls (Titleist ProV1 or equivalent), polo/hat/club head covers from whatever course he's playing at, push cart (if he walks the course typically) etc. There is a very large golf accessories industry lol.

Has anyone else worked with a manager that’s difficult to get a gauge on whether you’re meeting expectations? Tiny actions suggest that he doesn’t really like me/gel with me. How does one cope with hard to read bosses where you constantly feel like you’re not doing enough to the point that I now have anxiety about my work and wondering if my head is first on the chopping block if time came. When asked for feedback I don’t get much constructive criticism.
