Lamkin Sonar Grips

New grips on your clubs help relieve tension in your hands and wrists, and when they match the size of your hands, playing ability, and usual weather conditions, the difference in your game can be huge. Lamkin offers a remarkable range, including a new line of Sonar grips based on the company’s proprietary Fingerprint technology for comfort and control. Various taper profiles are available in the Sonar, Sonar Tour, and Sonar Wrap models. Starting at $7.99

 

Scotty Cameron Phantom X Putters

“Drive for show, putt for dough” may be one of the oldest adages in golf, but serious players know it’s true. Those same serious players are lining up to try the latest line of mallet putters from Titleist’s Scotty Cameron, the Phantom X. There are five models in the line, each with different shaft bends and styling differences, but all are built from a block of milled aluminum surrounded by stainless steel, which makes them less susceptible to twisting. To get the most from your new Phantom X, it might be a good idea to visit your favorite club fitter to fine-tune the weight screws in the heel and toe areas. $455

 

Callaway ERC Soft

You probably haven’t been waiting your entire life for a four-piece distance ball with a dual core infused with Graphene, a strong and flexible nanoparticle. In fact, you probably don’t know what a nanoparticle is. Never mind, Callaway Golf says the stuff gives its new ERC Soft ball more speed, which means more distance. There are several other high-tech features in the ball, but the one you’ll notice first and use the most is the new Triple Track lines that make the ball easier to aim and align with your putter face. $39.99

 

Golf Logix

Golf Logix, probably the most downloaded app in the game, offers basic GPS service for 35,000 courses on your smartphone — or your Apple Watch. Now, though, you can also subscribe to a package that includes a game-changing putt-line feature based on advanced 3D technology the company used to map greens on more than 12,000 courses down to centimeter accuracy. Golf Logix says you can draw a line from the ball to the cup on your phone’s screen and see exactly how your putt will break. The annual subscription includes other premium features, too. $49.99

 

Tour Edge Exotics CBX

PGA Champions Tour star Tom Lehman notched his opening win of the season this year playing the new Exotics CBX 119 hybrid by Tour Edge. The club is part of the company’s new line of fairway metals and hybrids based on feedback from players like Lehman. The new design features a wider and deeper “Speed Ramp” sole with a higher center of gravity and an increased carbon-fiber area that puts more weight forward to reduce spin, a feature that adds distance. Available in lofts from 13.5 to 22 degrees. Starting at $249

 

TecTecTec! ULT-X

The new ULT-X laser range finder from TecTecTec! makes it even easier to home in on your target with its innovative Target Lock Technology that displays the distance to the flagstick even when it’s in front of wooded areas. Plus, ULT-X vibrates when it spots your target — and it’s accurate to plus or minus 12 inches at up to 300 yards! Want more info? A slope toggle can be activated to calculate elevation-adjusted distances to the target and is easily disengaged for USGA-conforming play. $249

 

Zero Friction Cabretta Elite Gloves

You’ll liven up your look this year while improving your grip on the club with Zero Friction’s compression-fit golf gloves. They combine Cabretta leather with reinforced mesh Lycra that molds to your hand for comfort and flexibility. Plus, like all Zero Friction products, they come in an astounding array of colors. $17.99

 

Sun Mountain Finn Cycle

Sun Mountain this year unveils the Finn Cycle, which promises to speed up pace of play while providing an exhilarating ride. The new device is a two-wheeled cycle with an electric motor and lithium battery that will carry you and your golf bag through 36 holes on a single charge. It has front and rear suspension and a hydraulic disc brake. Your golf bag sits along the center-line of the cycle, offering easy club access and stability. Finn Cycle will begin arriving at courses this spring and a personal street-capable model is in the works.
