It seems just a while ago we fea­tured a mega gear test to help you find the right equip­ment to build the best pos­si­ble set of tools for the bet­ter­ment of your game. Whether you are a pro, low, mid or high hand­i­cap­per, there is al­ways some­thing lack­ing in your game. That is where this use­ful and now an­nual guide, that stretches to nearly 50 pages this is­sue, will come in very handy!

In the span of about a year, a lot has pro­gressed in golf tech­nol­ogy. We now have a driver that syncs with a free pro­pri­etary app on your mo­bile to dis­play your driv­ing dis­tance as well as keep track of your driv­ing stats. Driv­ers that al­ready help you drive straighter and fur­ther, have im­proved on them­selves, so now all you have to do is to swing that club at the same speed to en­joy the en­hance­ments. We are also see­ing the per­for­mance gaps be­tween bud­get, per­for­mance and pre­mium driv­ers clos­ing even fur­ther, so that’s a con­sid­er­a­tion as well if it wasn’t pre­vi­ously.

As for irons, the beauty of the bet­ter player models con­tinue to in­duce un­con­trol­lable feel­ings of fas­ci­na­tion and won­der, where folks like my­self won­der when we will be able to wield them ef­fec­tively. We fea­ture a plethora of put­ters as well, put­ters that will suit all eyes, putting strokes and styles. Happy shop­ping!
