There's Duck Dynasty golf balls, for goodness sakes

By now, we're all too familiar with the phenomenon that is ''Duck Dynasty.'' The bearded brethren and their kinfolks have one of the highest-rated shows on TV, and their licensing machine has been in overdrive lately – you could, if you want, buy everything from ''Duck Dynasty'' sleepwear to bandages to Halloween costumes for dogs.
And, I have just discovered, there are also official ''Duck Dynasty'' golf balls. Made and marketed by Srixon Golf, these two-piece balls are Blaze Orange – just like hunting vests – and come festooned with the faces of some of your favorite cast members. But as goofy as they might look, these are balls are the real deal.

Made for the vast majority of golfers, Srixon says these spheres promote a high launch angle and penetrating trajectory for greater distance. The strong, piercing ball flight produces a shallower descent for greater carry and roll, the company adds, noting that they also provide soft feel for added control.
Even better, they retail for $9.99 for a six-pack.
I admit I haven't seen every espisode of the show, and can't say that I've ever seen Willie and the boys out on the links. But we know for a fact that they do like golf – they're buddies with Bubba Watson and hung out at the Zurich Classic in New Orleans last spring. And, of course, we learned this year that Si fancies himself a golf instructor.
The golf balls would make a fun stocking stuffer for your favorite golfer. And no disrespect to Si, but I'd recommend you see your local PGA Professional for lessons.
