Mizuno MP-18 Irons — The Best-Made Irons In The Game Of Golf
You know what is better than walking into a golf shop to buy a full set of irons off the rack? Getting fitted for a full set of irons to make sure they fit your swing. Well, you know what is better than that? Being able to pick and choose clubs from three sets of irons all that have varying levels of forgiveness and playability. And you know what is even better than that? Being able to do it with the best-made irons in the game, Mizuno.
The Mizuno MP-18 line features three sets of clubs (Muscle Back “MB”, Cavity Back “SC”, and a Multi-Material Construction “MCC”) that can be purchased as full sets, or bought at the individual club level. Since the swing weights and features of all the clubs are identical, this makes having a split set of MP-18s even easier. You just get fitted for the configuration that works for you and you’re off to the races.
And for those who love Hybrid clubs, this line features the super easy to hit MP-18 MCC FLI-HI hybrids, which can be used for your 6-iron through 2-iron.
Laphroaig 27-Year-Old Scotch — A Limited-Edition Addition To The Laphroaig Family
I’m a huge fan of Laphroaig Scotch Whisky. I keep two bottles of the Cairdeas stocked in my home bar at all times, and the smokey 10-year single malt is another favorite. The latest, greatest, and rarest addition to the Laphroaig Family is a limited-edition 27-year-old scotch. It carries a burnished gold color, a complex nose of toasted macadamia nuts and tropical fruit flan, and has a smoke-filled palate with a distinct sea salt and mild chili. At $750 a bottle, this is truly an exquisite bottle of scotch. You can find more details about this below on Laphroaig’s website.
(THROWBACK) PhD Slopestyle Light: VANS Tube Sock by Smartwool
Are you looking for some extra fresh throwback-style socks to get you through Fall and Winter? The PhD Slopestyle Light socks are a collaboration between VANS and Smartwool. They pay homage to the high socks of yesteryear. Perfect for skating, snowboarding, or wearing around town. I’m not saying these are the freshest socks of 2017 but I’m not not saying that.
See-Through Lock Pick Set Lets You See What You’re Doing While Practicing
I don’t know how to pick locks, but it’s something I’ve always been somewhat interested. I came across this see-through lock pick set earlier in the week and knew I had to order it for myself. It comes with three transparent locks, the most popular lock types around. This way when you’re practicing picking the locks you can see what you’re doing and become more familiar with the ins and outs of a lock. It’s only $24, and a perfect gift to yourself.
