12 Coolest Items At The PGA Show

January 26, 2012


The three collections in the new Arnie line are based on Arnold Palmer's style in the 1950s, '60s and '70s. (Shown, items from the 70s and 50s lines.) Each collection is defined by cool pocket detailing, collar definition and, of course, implements Arnie's signature umbrella logo. Ryan Moore will be sporting the clothes this season. (Prices range from $69 to $109; Arniewear.com)

Adidas PureMotion and CrossFlex

Built on the freemotion footwear philosophy, these two shoes have roomier toe boxes, spikeless outersoles and waterproof mesh. The PureMotion, which is designed to allow natural mobility, weighs 11.6 ounces, and the Crossflex, which is built on a running shoe, weighs 10.5 ounces. (PureMotion, $120; CrossFlex, $100; adidasgolf.com)

Boccieri Secret Grip

While the conventional golf grip weighs 52 grams, this one is built with a tungsten weight and clocks in at 92 grams. The heaviness raises the balance point of the club, which is designed to promote better body mechanics. Just in case you're wondering, Sergio Garcia back-weights all 14 clubs in his bag. ($18; Boccierigolf.com)

Oakley Fast Jacket

A lever above each lens makes it easier than ever for you to change them. The sunglasses, worn by Ian Poulter and Rory McIlroy, come with two sets of lenses, which are available in polarized and non-polarized versions. The G30 lens creates contrasts in green colors, which is designed to make it easier for you to read greens. ($220 non-polarized, $280 polarized; Oakley.com)


When you attach this device to the shaft of any club (it weighs less than an ounce), it captures your swing and transmits it to your smartphone or tablet. From there, it offers digitized feedback (including swing path, speed and lie angle) and allows you to share the information with your instructor, golf buddies, etc. ($149; swingbyte.com)

Abacus Turnberry Windstopper Sweater

The classic-looking sweater has a full-stretch liner with built-in shoulder gussets to allow for full range of motion. Cord shoulder patches, Birdseye fabric on the collar and elbow patches make it a fashion statement as well as a technical piece. (Available this Fall; abacussportswear.com)

Bag Boy T-2000 Travel Cover

If you've traveled at all with your golf clubs, you know it can really rip up your hands and make your arms sore. That's why this travel cover, which has a handle that rotates 360 degrees, is genius. It reduces arms and wrist strain, and you won't ever have to pull your bag with two hands. Plus, you can dance with it. ($190; bagboy.com)

Kentwool Compression Socks

The successful performance sock company is debuting compression socks, which are designed to increase circulation by providing gradual compression all the way up to the knee. Made of 65 percent super fine merino wool, 35 percent nylon and five percent cocona. (Available in May; $40; kentwoolsocks.com)

Fila Tahoe Long Sleeve Sport Shirt

This will be the softest piece of clothing you'll ever feel. Seriously. Made of 86 percent polyester and 14 percent Spandex, it's also designed to ensure body heat gets evenly transferred. ($70; shopfilagolf.com)

SNAG Golf Sticky Suit

If you have kids, they probably want nothing more than to hit you with golf balls. (Face it, it's true.) Enter, the sticky suit. It's a Velcro suit that, when used with the company's sticky balls and plastic golf clubs, turns you into a moving target. ($230, snaggolf.com)

SuperFlex Bands Golf Kit

A collection of five exercise bands made specifically for golfers, the exercise program that's included with this kit is designed to help you increase mobility, stability, flexibility, core strength and more. ($99; superflexbands.com)


This might be the coolest collection of golf-inspired T-shirts, baseball caps, pants and more. And now you can walk around and honestly say, "I got a hole in one." You're welcome. (Prices vary; bogeypro.com)
