The tailor-cut Pure Touch Limited Glove ($28) from FootJoy is made from some of the softest, most exclusive Cabretta leather we’ve ever felt.

Available only in a limited number of shops. footjoy.com

Featuring the same innovative and eco-friendly design of the original Epoch, the new Epoch-S3 ($8.99/50) incorporates the company’s Sweet Spot System that takes the guesswork out of consistently teeing at the proper height by aligning the ball with the driver’s “sweet spot,” assuring optimum distance on every drive. And they’re made out of recycled materials. evolvegolf.com

The La Fresh Golf Pack ($5.99) includes three insect-repellent wipes, three SPF 30 sunscreen wipes, two shoe-shine wipes and two deodorant wipes. In particular, the sunscreen wipes are a great alternative to bottles and tubes that make a mess in your golf bag and make your hands greasy. lafreshgroup.com

Having mapped more than 25,000 courses worldwide, it makes sense that GolfLogix ($39/year) made its software available for smartphones. The new GolfLogix smartphone software not only gives precise yardage, but also tracks your stats. It runs on iPhones, Blackberrys, Google’s Android and Nokia Symbian models. On March 1, the company introduced the upgraded version 1.2 of its smartphone software, resulting in nearly two dozen upgrades that improve its functionality and graphics.
