It holds two balls and says “It takes balls to golf.”
There is an especially interesting gift, a blood pressure monitor for your wrist. This monitor will inflate and tell you your pulse rate and blood pressure. It even has a short memory and can tell you the averages over a period of several sessions. This site offers a surprise package of three weird sports gifts in one, and you will not know which ones until it is opened. This may be a better gift for yourself than for someone else.
Stupid.com has some great weird sports gifts you might want to consider. Most of these are alcohol related and are meant for sports fans, such as the Beer Holding Hoodie and the Binocular Flask. The hoodie has a convenient pouch for holding a can or bottle of beer. The binoculars do not actually work, but they do hold 16 ounces of your favorite drink. One of the best weird sport gifts is the Big Daddy Driver – Weed Whacking Golf Club. This golf club has actually won an award for being so strange. When you slice one into the rough, you can cut your way out with this combination weed whacker/golf club.
