Happy golf season, everyone! Celebrate by snapping up these handy items to help you out on the green.
Bag Boy T-10 Travel Cover
You’ve already got your golf club bag, that comically large, clunky storage unit for your drivers and putters. And that baby was expensive—quality bags can run up to several hundred dollars. So when you aren’t using it, you’ll want to protect that big investment with a cover, like this one from Bag Boy. It’s made of all-weather polyester and has a soft-sided design that fits inside its hard top for convenient, compact storage.
Titleist Pro V1x Golf Balls
$62 for 12
Here are the technical specs of these golf balls: They’ve got a softer feel, a low spin for extraordinary distance, and supreme durability. And here’s a true winning argument: They’re what Jordan Spieth, a Titleist brand ambassador, used to win the 2015 Masters.
Adams Tight Lies Hybrid Club
New last fall, this club was deemed a “game-improvement stick for the masses” by Golf magazine. The Tight Lies model combines Adams’ innovative hybrid technology with a nearly invisible crown slot, low-profile body, and trapezoidal design—resulting in a lower center of gravity for high-launching shots. (It’s also just cool to look at.)
PING Women’s Rhapsody CRAZ-E Putter
Female golfers might want to add this new offering to their wish list. The Rhapsody CRAZ-E Putter’s most notable feature is its series of grooves designed to promote superior feel and distance control. Amateurs will appreciate PING’s description of it as a “highly forgiving” tool that “equips golfers with confidence and consistency on the green.” Still not convinced? Dick’s Sporting Goods included it among the best new golf gear of 2015.
The time has come: Golf technology is now so advanced that shoes have actual an exoskeleton. The developers of this just-released style created a special material called FlexGrid; it’s lightweight, waterproof, and inspired by the architecture of a bridge in Boston. The bottom part of the shoe is a thick, solid rubber-like material that provides stability for swinging. The end product is a supportive yet light athletic shoe.
