Rolex Sea Dweller
Price: Starting at $11,350
You can’t have Tiger’s 15 major championships and 82 PGA TOUR victories, but you can have his watch (OK, five figures needed). The Rolex Sea Dweller uses an Oystersteel case, black dial with 18-ct gold hour markers, and Rolex’s new 3235 movement.
Royal Albartross Bedford Weekender
Ditch the boring black rollerboard and take your travel game to another level with Royal Albartross’ Bedford Weekender bag. Handcrafted from Italian calf leather, the Bedford can easily fit a pair of golf shoes and a few outfits for a long golf weekend to a warm location this winter.
FootJoy 1857 Shoes
If you are a hardcore golfer with discerning taste, you’ve probably laced up a pair of FootJoy Classics at some point. If so, you also probably shed a tear in 2009 when FootJoy announced it would no longer produce them. Good news; the brand’s 1857 Collection of footwear includes timeless wingtip and saddle styles that possess a similar aesthetic, quality, and craftsmanship to the Classics. They are built on the same Aintree last as the Classic and feature premium Italian calfskin leathers, leather outsoles, full leather linings, suede heel pockets, Goodyear welts, and cork-layered fit-beds.
Phat Golf Scooters
Among the various companies offering alternatives to traditional golf carts, Phat Golf scooters have the blessing of PGA TOUR pro Pat Perez: “It’s like riding a couch.” The fat tires and electric motor make the scooter eco-friendly, and with the battery lasting at least 36 holes without a change, range anxiety shouldn’t be an issue. But we don’t recommend poppin’ wheelies!
