Golf Clubs

Bettinardi Studio Stock 14 Putter — Buying a new golf club for someone else can be tricky. There are a ton of different club customizations you have to consider when buying a new driver, irons or fairway woods. Luckily, putters are pretty easy to buy as most of us can get away with standard specs. The Studio Stock 14 putter series from Bettinardi Golf is one of the best we’ve ever tested, as you can tell by our glowing review. (Retail: $399)

Nike Method MOD 90 Putter — Like the Bettinardi putter mentioned above, the newest offering from Nike Golf is a solid putter that will have golfers turning heads in 2014. Nike might not be the leader in club design as of right now, but this is an incredibly consistent putter that will please any golfer on your list. Read our review here. (Retail: $299)

Cleveland Golf 588 Altitude Driver — Most amateur golfers have no need for adjustable drivers. Chances are the player on your Christmas list plays only a handful of times a Summer, so why complicate matters with a tech-heavy club? Cleveland Golf’s new 588 Altitude driver is all business in a simple, great-looking package. Designed for players with moderate swing speeds, this could be a breakout club in 2014.
