The Antigua brand has been around for a while now, but some of the company's latest styles prove this brand isn't your father's clothing company. The fresh new, athletic-inspired Performance 72 line demonstrates attention to detail, highlighting just the right accents. It's performance with style. This apparel is perfect for the course—and off the course, too.

Nike Golf's VR_S Covert 2.0 hybrids ($229 each) come in a progressively smaller clubhead size and taller clubface as the loft increases, all in the name of more forgiveness. A Fly-Brace reinforced cavity translates to long and straight shots. The #2 and #3 hybrids are similar to fairway woods, while the #4 and #5 offer more shotmaking precision.

TRUElinkswear's lyt breathe ($129) are oh-so-lightweight and comfortable. Like wearing slippers. Plus, their breathability keeps your feet cool. The upper is made of mesh, the outsole, an EVA material with excellent traction.

Zepp Labs updated its cool 3D Multi-Sport Motion Sensor ($150) and smartphone app. The new unit is a third smaller than before and is easier to operate. When attached to your golf glove, it allows you to review and replay a simulation of your swing from any angle on your smartphone and provides detailed swing analysis.

The Perfect Pitch Golf Mat ($65) takes the guesswork out of working on your short shots using a series of indicators that help you with feet and ball positions. We love that! And we especially like that it can be used anywhere. Comes in models for men, women and juniors.

Adjustability, customization and more distance? Sign us up! The new BiO CELL driver from Cobra represents our favorite Cobra driver to date, with arguably the simplest on-the-fly adjustability. The MYFLY8 and Smart Pad Tech combine to make adjusting loft a cinch, and the Crown CELL weighting and E9 Face work together for added distance and forgiveness. But, really, enough descriptive speak, how does it perform? You heard it here, the BiO CELL is long! It's not only deep, it's really forgiving on off-center strikes and gets the ball airborne in a hurry. It comes in six colors (orange, blue, red, white, silver and black).

For the more serious golfer, the BiO CELL+ is a solid option. Featuring the same adjustability features as the BiO CELL, the 440cc BiO CELL+ has a composite crown, which effectively promotes the high-launch/low-spin ballflight that better players want nowadays. It comes in five colors with premium shafts to choose from.
