The holidays are a tricky time of year for most golfers. With the proper tact and hint-dropping, the presents under the tree can greatly impact and improve your golf life in the coming year.
However, too often, some of the holiday season’s most well-meaning intentions result in some truly bizarre gifts from non-golfers.
On an annual basis, the guys at No Laying Up have enlisted the help of their quarter-million-plus followers to share “unusable golf gifts from non-golfer relatives,” and once again, the responses do not disappoint.
Kicking off the 2020 campaign was PGA Tour pro Max Homa, showing that even the best players in the world have well-intentioned gift givers in their circles that really don’t have a good grasp on a proper golf gift.

Actually super usable (Chrome Softs!) but I think it belongs in this thread nonetheless. I survived testicular cancer this year. Got a 12-pack of these bad boys from my in-laws. pic.twitter.com/StQUPjPr2V
