Accessories Buyer's Guide 2006
Accessories take many forms, but the most important are the bag, performance eyewear and a quality rangefinder
Golf accessories run aplenty in the Golf Tips offices, and they’re a big part of the game. But after you sift through the multiple cigar butt/puttershaft holders, groove cleaners, face-mark indicators, ball retrievers, sunblock applicators, iron head covers, ball markers and scorecard holders, you’ll discover that only three items are true must-have golf accessories: bags, golf-specific eyewear and rangefinders.
As far as eyewear is concerned, there’s no reason to doubt their effectiveness on the course. When the name of the game is contour reading and depth perception, anything that helps—and today’s performance eyewear certainly does—is a welcome advantage.
And since you carry your own bag, it’s likely you don’t have your own caddy. Enter the rangefinder, your instant guide to the correct distance. WIth a click of a button, you’ll always know the perfect club to hit.

Other features include a choice of lens sizes, each with AquaPel anti-fog technology. Style featured: PuttReaders
