FOOTJOY FJ 1857 COLLECTION SHOES
The definition of a classic golf shoe. Paying homage to the heritage and history of both FJ and the game of golf, these calfskin-leather shoes deliver a perfect blend of performance and luxury on the course.
GARMIN APPROACH Z80 RANGE FINDER
Garmin says their laser range finder with GPS is the most accurate on the market, within 10 inches of the flag up to 350 yards when the laser is activated. The GreenView feature shows distances to the front and back of the pin. Users see full-color 2D course view mapping for more than 41,000 courses worldwide.
PXG 0311 GEN2 IRONS
$400 (chrome)/$500 (Xtreme Dark) per club
PXG’s newest generation of irons, unveiled in the spring, have a blade look and soft feel, with slightly less offset and a thinner top line than the previous generation. “The difference is noticeable,” said Billy Horschel. The irons are available in four collections – Tour, Players, Xtreme Forgiveness and Super Game Improvement.
LAMB CRAFTED PUTTERS
The game’s hottest boutique putters are made by a young metalworker who launched his company five years ago in his mother’s garage in suburb outside Dallas. If you want a Tyson Lamb putter, though, you’ll have to wait – perhaps as much as six months (which is how long Wayne Gretzky waited for his). “I want everybody to have the putter they want,” Lamb told D Magazine. “But … you can’t just jump to the front of the line.”
GALVIN GREEN EDGE E-LLUSION JACKET
Galvin Green’s Edge series is “designed to push the limits in technical golf wear,” according to the company. This full-zip waterproof jacket is made in GORE-TEX fabric with a mesh lining. Its pre-shaped sleeves with slightly extended cuffs and Velcro adjustment help divert water from the back of the hand.
GARIA COOLEST GOLF CAR EVER
This limited edition car (not “cart” according to its Danish maker) made its premier at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show. It was inspired by Mercedes-Benz Style and includes an integrated touch screen device, hand-stitched lunge seats, a carbon-fiber roof and is street legal in the U.S.
