Golf Gear for 2013: Golf Accessories
From balls to tees to cart brackets, there's no shortage of cool gear to help your game in 2013.
Based on the idea that most golfers play a higher compression ball than they need, the two-piece Wilson Staff DUO Golf Ball has a compression of 40, with a softer feel around the green and improved playability. The DUO’s stats show it is long off the tee, with more control due to reduced spin off the driver. With Wilson’s current “try it or return it” promotion and at half the price of other premium golf balls, what have you got to lose—except the ball, inevitably? $19.99/dozen. Visit wilson.com.
Research shows that the type of tee you use can make a difference, and the folks at Kiwi Golf have the science and the studies to support that. The theory behind their Firecracker Tee is simple: Your golf ball is making less contact with the tee and more contact with the clubface. Their striking, multicolored, oversized design also makes them hard to lose. $9/pack of six. Visit kiwigolf.com.
