Theragun

Portable Masseuse

If you’re an avid golfer, you know how beautiful the sport can be. It’s a passion and a lifestyle—but it can cause constant aches and pain, especially in the lower back. Enter the Theragun G3. It’s a handheld machine that releases muscle tension and tightness by generating rapid, repetitive percussions to stimulate blood flow. This kind of stimulation can also activate tired muscles and improve range of motion, making a 30-second Theragun session a perfect addition to your pre-round or pre-range routine. The Theragun G3 comes with four attachments that target area-specific relief (the “dampener” is for tender areas near bones, the “thumb” is for your lower back, the “cone” is for pinpoint muscle treatment, and the “standard ball” is for overall use), and the Theragun app smartly explains the many ways you can use it to feel your best.

Claret Dreamer

Divot-Repair Tool

Claret Dreamer custom divot repair tools

The one-of-a-kind tools are handcrafted from hickory and are made-to-order. You can get a tool carved into whatever you like (provided the designer can pull it off). Typically, Claret Dreamer divot tools only have one wooden prong, so they won’t perform as well as some higher-tech models. But if you don’t mind paying a little more, one of these custom tools can add a touch of class to your game and, at the very least, provide you with something to talk about with your playing partner. You can find them for sale around the internet, but for a Claret Dreamer tool of your own, email their designer, Tim Alpaugh, at claretdreamer@gmail.com.
