With a dash of technology, fashion and performance, Golfweek’s holiday gift guide has something sure to please any golfer:

Titleist My Pro V1 golf balls

Titleist makes it easy to put a holiday message on the game’s most-played balls with the My Pro V1 program.

Bushnell Pro X2

$499.99

The Pro X2 provides accurate distances to objects as far away as 450 yards. The display can be set in red or black to make the numbers easier to read. To ensure the target is being hit with the beam, the Pro X2 has a feature called Jolt, which makes the unit vibrate when it locks onto a flag. The slope feature displays a “playing yardage” by taking into account the angle to a target, and it easily can be disabled to make the Pro X2 conforming for tournament play.
