In this challenging time we are facing with COVID-19, people are spending a lot more time at home. Netflix can go only so far, which means people are turning to board games and jigsaw puzzles as a way to keep themselves entertained. So I thought I would create a series of jigsaw puzzles featuring my images to keep your mind active. – Gary Lisbon From $75. Visit golfjigsawpuzzles.com for more details.

A putter is one of the most personal items in the bag. It has to look right and feel right. Thanks to TaylorMade you can now create a look that’s all your own. You can now personalise your putter, choosing from the traditional blade shapes of MyTP or the modern shapes of Spider Tour, Spider X and the new Spider EX.
