Golf is a great sport for equipment geeks, because as well as the large brands that do everything, there are numerous smaller brands and entrepreneurs who design products that they hope will improve your game or your enjoyment of it.
Many of these fly under the radar, so I took time at the 2023 PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando to find the best golf clubs, best golf balls and best golf accessories that are worthy of your attention this year. There was plenty of choice covering everything from showstoppers to head scratchers like the combo golf trolley/baby pram. However, here are my top seven picks of products to brighten up your golf in 2023.
LA Golf Putters
If you know your golf driver shafts you will have heard of LA Golf and the products they create in conjunction with Dustin Johnson and Bryson DeChambeau. You may also know they own SIK Putters, which feature the Descending Loft Technology (DLT) on the face to ensure that your putts roll better.
LA Golf now have their own range of putters in an all carbon forged head with the only metal parts being the steel heel and toe weights and the face insert that has the DLT. This means they can position the CG right in the middle of the face. When combined with the carbon wrapped LA Golf putter shaft the feel and balance of this putter is excellent. The original forged carbon putter was over $1500, but expect to see some cheaper models in the same shapes using injection moulded carbon for about a third of that price.
Blue Tees Player + Bluetooth Magnetic Cart Speaker With GPS
If you like a different vibe on the course then the Blue Tees Player bluetooth speaker delivers streaming music to help you find your groove. Featuring a powerful magnet to attach to a buggy, waterproof cover, and phone charger, the Player can also be paired with another Player golf speaker for even more impressive stereo sound. From April 2023, expect to see the Player + version which incorporates a golf GPS screen for front/middle/back yardages and distances to the next four hazards together. It can even speak the distances if you like golf for your ears only.
Aero-Swing Speed Trainer
Everyone is trying to improve their swing speed these days and the Aero-Swing is the latest golf training aid to help you do that. The light graphite shaft comes in a choice of three lengths and two flexes, each with plastic Pineapples slotted on to the end to create air-resistance for speed training.
