    Hi,

    I need some help.

    I want to get a gift for my mother in law. I am ready to spend about $200.

    My MIL is really into golf. I know nothing about it other than using a stick to hit a white ball in a little while.

    Anyone have any specific recommendations please?

    Most serious golfers are pretty picky about their clubs, better off sticking with some of the peripheral equipment. Ask your wife for MIL's tastes to be safe.

    If my son bought me that putter I would be floored! It is a really good putter and pretty in the bag too. Class it speaks. If you decide to go with it, call them and tell them it is for a woman, they'll make sure the shaft isn't too long. Unless your MIL is over 5'6"

    How about a gift cert. to a top notch golf course ? If she's really into golf she's likely attached to the clubs she already owns. What state does she live in ?

    I'm picky about my golf bag so nobody can buy that for me, nor shoes, clothes, or clubs other than a putter because most or at least I do, I already have 3 putters and I like to switch my putter off depending on what course I play.

    Don't buy her lessons either. Someone did that for me and I took that as an insult.

    If she golfs a lot she probably already has a membership to a course. Golf balls are more of a stocking stuffer if you ask me.

    I would call a golf cource and ask to talk to a Pro(that is their title) and ask them what is the best golf club for a lady. I personally enjoy my 3 wood the best, so you should get her a nice one those. Titliest is good and so is Nike now because of Tiger. Your best bet would be to have her pick it out so they can custom size it.
