If intimidation is part of your game, try pulling up to the first tee looking like Arnold Schwarzenegger in this humdinger of a golf cart from Ultra Custom Golf Carts in (where else?) California. It won’t maneuver that swamp to find an errant shot any better than a regular cart, but it sure will have the good ol’ boys in the 19th hole talking. Gas or battery powered. $15,600-$17.600.www.ultragolfcarts.com
No matter what you do, you just can’t hit it straight. Can’t be you. Must be the ball. Yeah, that’s right, the ball must be lopsided. The Tollyx Golfball Tester takes away that excuse. It won’t tell you if that titanium core is a little off-center, but it will tell you whether your ball is perfectly round. Made in Norway, www.rollyx.com. $24.99
FOR WOMEN ONLY
Women need golf balls made especially for their game, and we’re not talking about imprinting a pink ribbon or a ladybug on a Wilson Titanium. Generally, women don’t generate the same club speed as men, so they need a ball that compresses more easily.
The Avant may be the answer. It is the first hi-tech professional quality golf ball designed specifically for women. EmpoweredWomen’s Golf, 972-233-8807.
Regular shades just don’t cut it on the golf course. You already face swirling winds and , blazing sun, not to mention the glare from an occasional sand trap, so you certainly don’t need any more obstacles. Callaway has teamed with Ray-Ban to produce sunglasses they say will protect your eyes and actually help you read the greens. Whether you sink the putt is still up to you. $179-$199.
