BELOW ARE TEN NEW products I found in 2022. They might have been on the market before 2022, but this current year is when they were new to me. So here are the new ones I thought were the best. RS
Sqairz Golf Shoes #1
No. 1 Sqairz Golf Shoes
Sqairz plain and simple has become the best new golf shoe on the market.
What started out as a good product, but was a little heavy and bulky, has been slimmed down and sleeked out into a real force in the market.
It’s no longer just about the durability, it’s about the style and comfort that Sqairz brings to the table. I am wearing the new Speed model, and it’s the best shoe I have ever worn. So order your pair today, you will be glad you did. Sqairz.com.
Callaway Rogue ST Clubs.
No. 2 Callaway Rogue ST Golf Clubs.
I started the year in January finding Callaway Golf doing fittings in the Mistwood Golf Dome in Bolingbrook.
Because they were greatly improved over my Callaway Mavericks, I made the change immediately. So by the time I returned from Florida and the PGA Show in February, my clubs were here.
So much for supply chain issues. But then later in the summer, the Rogue ST fairway woods did finally beat the great numbers I was getting from my older Callaway Steelhead woods. With that, my entire set of woods and irons was the new Rogue ST clubs. I am happy with these clubs, but rumor is Callaway will have something new in 2023. But anything new will have to be great to top the Rogue ST’s.
Brava Driver Shaft- by BGT Golf
No.3 The Brava Driver Shaft, by BGT Golf and the Barney Adams group.
Thanks goodness the last thing longtime golf PR-Wiz Mary Beth Lacy did before retiring, was have me sent one of these Brava Golf driver golf shafts. Once added to my Callaway Rogue St Driver, the distance increase was amazing. My fitter Matt Carter at Mistwood GC, was shocked to see the numbers increase after checking out the stats on the Trackman. So you can learn more at BGTgolf.com
Golf Shots comes in at No. 4
No. 4 Golf Shots
This has been the best energy supplement I have found in a long time.
Not only did Golf Shots taste good, it did what is was promoted to do.
because I feel like I did have a better sense of focus, and for once when using a product like, I didn’t have an energy crash feeling in the 19th hole. A few friends also tested it for me, and enjoyed the same results. I took the samples 15 minutes before teeing off, and they worked really well. So for an extra boost on the course, without paying the price later, do try Golf Shots and see more at Golfshots.com.
The Stewart Trolley at Cantigny.
The Stewart Trolley from England.
What’s the best golf product coming out of London these days ?
The Stewart Trolley and for those of you who like to walk, these is the best Push-Pull cart you can find.
But even better if you don’t like to push or pull, how about the remote feature that allows the Stewart Trolley to just follow you as you walk down the fairway. No pushing or pulling needed. Yes now that does sound even better. I’m not really a pull cart guy. But I found the Stewart Trolley to be really good, during my round of golf Cantigny in Wheaton using one. See more at StewartgolfUSA.com. Put the enjoyment back in walking.
Spencer Hadelman’s Talon Golf products, were the surprise of the 2022 PGA Golf Show.
TALON GOLF PRODUCTS.
I met Spencer Hadelman at the PGA Merchandise show, and while his golf gloves were really good.
His apparel line is even better. I can say enough good things about the comfort of Talon Golf T-Shirts, but even better is the Talon Golf Hoodies.
They came in handy all year long, and they really are comfortable. Which is why some big name properties are selling the product line. See More at Talongolf.com.
The Zero Friction bag-cart combo is no. 7
NO. 7 Zero Friction’s-Cart and Bag
So look out on the course, is it a golf bag, or is it a push-cart.
No, it’s the all in one bag-cart. Because the bag and cart go-together or they come apart and can be used separate or together.
So if you trying to make everything fit in the trunk of your vehicle, or trying to lighten what you are pushing around the golf course.
Get the Zero-Friction cart, the all in one way to walk. See more at Zerofriction.com.
Links and Kings headcovers are No. 8.
No. 8 Links & Kings Head Covers
I am aware of several different companies that make head covers for all types of the clubs that find the way into your golf bag.
But in my visit to Pine Valley this past August I found a brand in the pro shop I had not seen before.
Links and Kings.
The photo here is the one that I bought, and is now on the 3-wood in my bag. The stylish leather cover fits snug on my club, but not to tight where you have to really work hard to pull it off.
It’s very easy to clean or dry when it gets wet. See LinksandKings.com
The Putting Arc lands at No. 9
No.9 The Putting Arc
I have just been introduced to the Putting Arc in the last month.
But after it’s arrival at my office, I started testing it out. I have found that the formula of four easy steps to better putting is one that is improving my putting.
Or at least the putting I’m doing here indoors. With the progress I have seen, I am getting more interested on working on my putting.
I am hopeful when I start playing next month, I will see some improvement. Check out thePuttingArc.com and learn more about this putting aid.
No. 10 the OGIO Golf Club Travel bag.
When your golf club travel bag finally blows a tire (or wheel in my case), it’s time to find a new one.
Sure beats everyone staring at you in places like O’Hare Airport when you walk past from the baggage carousel.
While my OGIO bag has not had to survive the O’Hare baggage area, it soon will. But with the durability I found while picking it out. I have no worries that it won’t hold up for a while. See OGIO products online, or visit your favorite golf store or the pro shop at the next resort you stay it.
That’s my top 10 for 2022. I hope you find what you need as you shop with the check or gift card in hand from Christmas. RS
