21 of the Best Equipment Finds in Golf

Spring 2022’s Best New Golf Equipment

For golfers all around the United States, spring weather is fantastic. While the Midwest and Northeast warm up and courses reopen, the South and West stay chilly enough to provide enjoyable rounds before the summer heat arrives. Golf firms supplying everything from clubs and balls to clothes and accessories rush their new lines to market this time of year, keeping the seasons in mind.

Here’s a look at some of the greatest new spring golf gear:

Irons PXG 0311 GEN5

The debut of the PXG 0311 GEN5 Irons in 2022 will be a major year for fans of the most costly and technologically advanced clubs in American golf. The PXG GEN5s are available in two finishes: GEN5 Chrome (US$4,599, whole bag) and GEN5 BLE (US$5,599). They are aggressively styled to make them identifiable on the course or at the range.

The XCOR2TM core is a special blend of materials hidden beneath the GEN5’s weight-studded shell (and the thinnest club face in club design). PXG spent years developing that polymer core in collaboration with numerous material companies, and the tactile result is a golf club that balances beautifully into the swing slot while delivering effortless speed and power.

Chemicals infused inside the club head’s heart more efficiently transfer your swing energy back into the ball, improving trajectory, ball speeds, and distance. More stunning shot trajectories and the most unique and explosive ball striking sound in the game are confirmation of all that scientific talk on the course.

Callaway Chrome Soft 2022 Golf Balls

The Callaway Chrome Soft range of golf balls, which has been a mainstay on the PGA Tour, has been redesigned and upgraded for 2022. The flagship Callaway golf ball series is available in three different variations (Chrome Soft, Chrome Soft X, and Chrome Soft X LS 22–all US$49.99 per dozen).

This year’s Callaway Chrome Softs are built with a three-layer construction method that includes a new Hyper Elastic SoftFast Core that improves ball compression and speed while limiting undesirable spin.

Honma TW757 Irons

Honma Golf is best known for manufacturing clubs with precious metals that may sell for well over $5,000, but the Japanese manufacturer now focuses its efforts on making really serious sticks. The TW757 Iron lines, which include the P, VX, and B versions, are Honma’s significant debut for 2022. The TW757 Irons are made of tungsten and S20C steel and cost between $1,272 and $1,500 per set.

The three iron sets are designed to meet the needs of distinct players. The cavity back P set is designed for golfers who need a bit extra distance and control. The VX cavity backs have a blade-like design that is ideal for shot shaping. For best balance and forgiveness, the B muscle backs combine a thin face with a more substantial sole weight.

Q-6 Slope Rangefinder by Cobalt Golf

The Cobalt Q-6 Slope Rangefinder is tough, waterproof, and loaded with AI. Its Slope Technology incorporates all aspects of shot length and terrain layout to provide a distance reading. While the Slope function can be turned off for regular play, using it on the course allows the Q-6 (US$450) to choose your length for you, eliminating the need to consider how hills can affect your game.

Spikeless Golf Shoes by Royal Albartross

Royal Albartross, based in the United Kingdom, is one of the more recent shoe makers in the golf game, with a variety of styles made of superior hand-crafted leather. The company’s designers took a break from more traditional styles this season, creating a collection of spikeless, sneaker-inspired shoes (varying in price from US$275 to US$229) that can support 18 holes before comfortably following their wearer to the 19th.

Full Swing Launch Monitor

The Full Swing Kit is a robust, tablet-sized device that travels with you to the range or practice facility and is Tiger Woods’ preferred launch monitor. The Full Swing unit records and reports everything from shot distance and direction to launch angle and spin rate, and it’s ready to connect wirelessly with everything from smartphones to tablets to wearables. The Full Swing Kit Launch Monitor Kit (US$3,999) also functions as a simulator, allowing you to play over 100 courses from the comfort of your own home.

Miura KM1 and KM2 Blade Putters

Miura is known for forging golf clubs with the accuracy of feudal Japan’s Samurai sword manufacturers. Miura creates some of the world’s most precise and elegant golf clubs. The KM1 and KM2 putters blade putters (US$999) are Miura’s first short sticks in four years, and will be introduced in 2022.

Speaqua Barnacle Golf Speaker

The Barnacle Golf Speaker is the tiniest golf gadget on the list (at a reasonable price of US$69.99). It takes your music with you onto the course. The Barnacle gets its name from its four-way mounting system for your golf bag or cart, which allows it to connect to any smartphone through Bluetooth or store up to 2,000 songs on its own.
