Five New Golf Gear Essentials

Pack these must-have items in your golf bag this season 


As you prepare to kick off a new golf season, consider splurging on some new equipment, too. Here are five ways to spice up your game.

Ironing It Out 

Callaway’s new Apex 16s are the perfect hybrid clubs—all-forged, cavity-back irons that promise workability and a long, buttery sensation at impact.

Price: $1,199.99 for eight irons.

It’s an Outdoor Sport 

“Bad” weather in Scottsdale could be a nice day in Scotland. With that in mind, Sunice offers an array of all-weather outerwear. Jay is a new full-zip waterproof jacket—light, stretchy and designed for “moderate to steady rainfall.”

Price: $200. 

Have a Ball 

Bridgestone’s new-for-2016 line of “tour” balls (B330, B330S, B330RX, B330RXS) for both newer and experienced players have received a complete makeover, and the updated formula adds distance across the board, with better control for the approach spin in the non-S models

and increasing spin on the S models.

Price: $39 to $43/dozen. 

A Good Walk Enhanced 

Good socks are a godsend. KENTWOOL socks wick moisture, don’t bind and come with a lifetime blister-free guarantee. The colourful Game Day line is perfect for anyone who wants to stand out on the course.

Price: $19.99

Get a Grip 

New sticks? You might just need new grips. Golf Pride’s CP2 and CP2 Wrap grips’ comfy high-traction patterns, reduced taper and firm torque-reducing core will put you back in control of your irons. (Quick tip: change your grips once a year.)

Price: $6.49 to $7.99 each
