The Spotless Swing Golf Towel ($20) is three golf towels in one. The outside keeps your hands, face, gloves and grips clean and dry, while the inside removes dirt, mud and water from your golf clubs. Plus it features a textured fabric that cleans your grooves. spotlessswing.com

Odyssey’s new Backstryke putter ($199) comes in three styles: the Marxman, 2-Ball and Blade. What separates it from the rest of the pack? It features something called “visible face alignment,” an unobstructed sight line that aids with alignment. It also features “forward press stabilization” (a natural shaft lean toward the target) that promotes the proper hand position that produces better roll, stability and top spin. Comes in lengths between 33 and 35 inches. odysseygolf.com

We were big fans of Clicgear’s pushcart at the 2009 PGA Merchandise Show, so when we heard that they had introduced an improved version, we couldn’t wait to see it. (We weren’t disappointed.) The Clicgear Model 3.0 ($199) includes a larger console, removable beverage holder, four new accessory mounts, an improved easy lever brake, new storage net and improved grip material. Comes in seven colors, including kiwi, orange, silver and red. clicgear.com

The sporty Millwood drycool polo ($75) from Abacus is made of a cotton/polyester drycool pique, but feels like a cotton polo on the outside. However, the polyester drycool fabric gives the polo the same features as a functional polo; the wicking draws moisture away from your body keeping you comfortable and dry. Features a pocket on the left chest, and a print on the right sleeve. Comes in apple/cactus, lagoon/Hawaiian ocean and white/navy. abacus-outdoor.com

The affordable, efficient and easy-to-use Belt Caddy ($20) securely holds your tees, balls, divot tool, ball marker and glove. So no more carrying lots of sharp, bulky items in your pockets? Sounds good to us! Clips on to your belt or directly to your clothing. golftools.org

Callaway claims their new, X-24 Hot Irons ($699-$899) are the longest, most accurate X-Series irons ever. How’d they do it? Well, they utilized Callaway’s proprietary VFT Face Technology, 360-degree undercut channel and a precise center of gravity to create a large and effective hitting area. Look for a new Stealth PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) finish that reduces glare. callawaygolf.com
