The smell of freshly cut grass is in the air and your sticks are itching to be hit. It’s exhilarating to go out and play your first round of golf in the spring after a cold winter. There are plenty of new golf products hitting the market just as the days are getting longer and temperatures are rising.
Whether your golf shoes are wearing out or you just want to give your on-course attire an updated look, there are new spikeless shoes from Adidas that will give your game a bold look and your feet plenty of comfort. While there is plenty of golf apparel out there, there are also new golf balls, clubs, and tech products worth considering. Prices listed below may fluctuate due to seasonal sales.
Adidas Stan Smith X Vice Limited Edition Golf Shoes
Adidas’ new Stan Smith X Vice golf shoes in neon green and red colorways are bold and eye-catching, but also very familiar. First of all, it should be noted that these Adiwear Sole Spikeless Golf Shoes are a limited edition, so if you’re intrigued by this style, you’ll want to trade them in quickly. Also, if you like the simplified style, there is a white color option that is more subtle.
These liaison shoes feature a microfiber leather upper, a cushioned midsole, and high-abrasion rubber in the forefoot. In addition, they are waterproof. I had the chance to try them out and am a huge fan. I love the fit and feel as it’s just like wearing any other pair of Adidas Stan Smith shoes, but with plenty of traction for the field. They handle links like a champ.
Buy it at Adidas for $120.
Linksoul Reverse Stripe Quarter Zip
The weather can be warm, but in the early morning and evening, you’ll probably need some sort of sweater for the course. This Linksoul Reverse Stripe Quarter-Zip is a perfect addition to any golf bag. I love the understated, casual style of the Quarter-Zip that has been adapted from other Linksoul pieces. It’s not stuffy, but it will keep cold air at bay.
Buy it on Linksoul for $110.
Kenny Flowers Lei Up Golf Shirt
If you want to make some noise on the golf course without getting kicked out, do it in this Kenny Flowers Lei Up tee. The tee has a silky smooth feel and is extremely flexible to allow for any movement your backswing may take. It is anti-odor, moisture wicking and wrinkle resistant. Like most Kenny Flowers polo shirts, this one has a stand just below the front buttons to keep shirts out of pockets. Perhaps best of all, this shirt is available in matching styles for men and women.
Buy it at Kenny Flowers for $88.
TaylorMade Tour Response Stripe Golf Balls (12-Pack)
New for 2022, TaylorMade Tour Response Stripe golf balls could be what your golf game has been missing. Sure, the type of golf balls you use won’t completely change your long or short game, but they can give you an edge. These balls have a new travel-in-use flight dimple pattern to promote maximum carry distance. One of the most notable aspects of this particular TaylorMade model is the easy-to-see stripe for more precise alignment. No more trying to mark your own golf balls with a Sharpie.

Tactile twist street pen
Why use a short wooden pencil when you can use this new Titanium Tactile Turn Fairway Golf Pen to keep score? The yellow and green pen is stunning, with incredible attention to detail, including dimples etched into the clip. The exterior finish makes it resistant to abrasion, chemicals, temperature, and scratches, though it can still be susceptible to those things with enough effort. The pen is available in three different sizes, from a standard 5.8-inch to a mini 4.6-inch.
Buy it at Tactile Turn for $149.
Ping PLD Milling Anser Putter
If nothing else, the matte black finish on this Ping PLD Milled Anser Putter is a great addition to your golf bag. However, this putter is much more than its looks and is fully machined from 303 stainless steel construction. The aggressive deep milling pattern (AMP) face provides a smooth feel, just like the pros are used to. Most importantly, the putter sticks with great precision so your team can help you with your short game every time you hit the green.
Buy it at Golf Galaxy for $449.
Footjoy Pro SL
Golfers looking to upgrade their Footjoy golf shoes should give the Pro SL a try. The shoes use ChromoSkin leather, which is said to be a “lightweight, durable, 100 percent waterproof leather.” The footbed has been redesigned for even more comfort with Footjoy’s finely tuned foam. There are 189 traction points built into the sole, so it won’t slip. This shoe is the complete package to keep your feet dry, cushioned and in place.
Buy it at Footjoy for $179.99.
TAG Heuer Connected Golf Caliber E4
If you are looking for a luxury smartwatch, this special edition TAG Heuer Connected Golf Caliber E4 may be the solution. The watch has a case size of 45 millimeters, but it comes rebranded with sporty golf touches. Most notable is the digital face and the white rubber strap, which has golf ball dimples on its surface. Most importantly, the watch includes an exclusive TAG Heuer golf app to track performance on over 40,000 golf courses around the world. It’s not cheap, but what golf items are cheap?
Buy it at Ben Bridge for $2,650.
Sentinel Head Covers use a responsible textile creation process developed by Amsterdam-based Byborre.
