If there is one thing golfers love to do, it's tinker with new equipment. We are always looking for the latest driver, hottest putter and best pair of shoes to help us go low. Each Friday for the rest of the year we will be bringing you five items that we've enjoyed messing around with, no matter if it's equipment, apparel or just something random that we thought you'd enjoy. Here we go!
G/Fore Socks — You probably know G/Fore for their colorful golf gloves, a nice addition to any outfit, but you shouldn't look past the socks. They're comfortable, they're durable and they make any golf outfit that much better. The low socks fit perfectly under your golf shoes so you can rock them with shorts, and the crew fit is great for golf and for going out. www.gfore.com $16-22
Ashworth Encinitas Golf Shoe — Golf shoes have leaned towards the athletic look for the last few years, so if you're a fan of traditional looks, you'll love the new Ashworth Encinitas golf shoe. They're classy, they're extremely comfortable and the color combination allows you to still flair up that outfit without having to wear a clunky pair of golf shoes with your newly pressed golf shirt. www.ashworthgolf.com, $200
Nicklaus Golf Balls — I'm somewhat of a traditionalist when it comes to golf equipment, using the same golf ball for years without switching, but if Jack Nicklaus is behind a product, I have no problem giving it a go. That's what happened with the Nicklaus Black golf ball, and I was as impressed as I could be with the feel and the durability of these balls. The balls come in three different styles, considering your swing speed and ability, and they won't break your wallet. www.shop.nicklaus.com, $32
Puma Faas Lite Mesh 2.0 — Puma has come out with a second round of the Faas Lite Mesh golf shoes, and they really improved an already great product. The shoes weigh in at just 6.8 ounces, added a mesh tongue to the shoe and continue to give you a feel that makes you almost feel like you aren't wearing anything. I love the contact you get with the grass on the golf course with these golf shoes, and they're so comfortable that you really can wear them to and from the course without jeopardizing comfort. www.cobragolf.com, $89.99
Under Armour Elevated Heather Polo — You've probably seen Jordan Spieth rocking one of the seven different colors of this polo, but the gray one above is my favorite color. This polo is simply put, awesome, and if you know someone of any age that needs a new golf shirt, this is the one to pick up. www.underarmour.com, $59.99
