Scotty Cameron Select Putters
The new Scotty Cameron Select putters are engineered with innovative new face inlay technology, blending precision-milled Scotty Cameron craftsmanship with enhanced multi-material construction. The result? A tour-validated performance with unmatched feel and feedback.
New Select putters feature sleek, performance-oriented models with new technology, shapes and configurations to satisfy the variety of strokes, styles and preferences of golfers at every level of the game. Central to the new Select line are three unique multi-material constructions matched to each putter style. Each construction utilises new face inlay technology to produce responsive feel and feedback that golfers have described as “soft but solid.”
The new Select Newport, Newport 2 and Newport 2.5 models feature a sole-to-topline 303 stainless steel inlay. The new Select Newport 2 Notchback features a sole-to-topline 6061 aircraft grade aluminium inlay, while the new Select Newport M1 and Newport M2 mid-mallets combine a 6061 aircraft grade aluminium inlay with Scotty’s face-sole pop-through technology. The face-sole is a single piece of lightweight aluminium that comprises the face inlay, wraps down and around to create the midsection of the sole and pops through the flange to create the sightline field. A new Select Newport 2 Notchback Dual Balance model is also available for those players who prefer a Newport-style head but need maximum stability in their stroke. Available now in Australia and New Zealand golf shops with a suggested retail price (SRP) Australia: $569 (Standard); $589 (Dual Balance), New Zealand: $639 (Standard); $669 (Dual Balance).

Callaway XR 16 Sub Zero Driver
The XR 16 Sub Zero boasts the lowest centre of gravity Callaway has ever engineered in a driver. This means players with high swing speeds that generate a lot of spin can use the extremely low spin Sub Zero to drive the ball even farther. Callaway used a new proprietary Carbon Triax Crown that’s the company’s lightest carbon crown ever to redistribute weight below the neutral axis. Then they added two interchangeable weights in the head (10g and 2g) to fine-tune the launch and spin you need to maximise distance. You can move the heavy weight forward for the lowest spinning, flattest trajectory or move the heavy weight back to promote a slightly higher trajectory and more forgiveness. And you can choose from 20 premium, no surcharge shafts to fit your swing speed. This is a driver that has already been proven on tour this year by players like Phil Mickelson.

Garmin Approach X40
The new Approach X40 is a revolutionary golf band that combines daily activity tracking and Garmin Elevate wrist heart rate technology with golf data for more than 40,000 international courses. Slim and lightweight, this versatile wristband shows precise distances to the front, middle and back of each green as well as hazards. Smaller than other golf watches, the X40 band features AutoShot tracking, which measures and records shot distances for post-round analysis in Garmin Connect. The Approach X40 boasts connected features like smart notifications and compatibility with the Garmin TruSwing club sensor to provide useful swing metrics at glance and within Garmin Connect.
The Approach X40 features Green View, which displays the shape of the green on each hole and allows golfers to manually place the pin for more accurate distances. Stylish and comfortable, the Approach X40 was designed with the active golfer in mind. With daily activity tracking, the Approach X40 records daily steps, calories burned, distance, time of day, hours of sleep and reminds users to stay active throughout the day with move alerts. When using the AutoShot feature, X40 users can gather even more data like the average distance for each club, longest drive per round and overall. They can even see their shots overlaid onto one map to see their own personal trends and tendencies, so they know what to work on for the next round. It pairs seamlessly with the Garmin TruSwing golf club sensor to improve swing consistency and is water resistant up to 50 metres so it can withstand a rainy golf game or intense workout without fear of damage.

FootJoy Versaluxe shoes
FootJoy’s Versaluxe shoes were designed to provide luxurious comfort on and off the golf course by utilising golf’s finest leathers, stunning details and a fashionable yet versatile spikeless outsole.
From the rich, super-soft premium SuppleLuxe leather by Pittards of England and fine-grade stitching to the cork covered fit-bed and suede inner heel pocket, every detail has been meticulously considered in order to deliver a shoe that is the pinnacle of style, comfort and craftsmanship.
For their assignment, FootJoy’s design team was challenged with creating a shoe that featured the best-of the-best so a player could experience luxurious looks and feel on and off the golf course. “Our inspiration here was that timeless, super soft, supple leather chair that fits you perfectly after years of wear,” says FootJoy’s Doug Robinson. “We want this shoe to be something you look forward to wearing for years as it molds to your foot over time and becomes more comfortable with every wear.”
Boasting full leather linings for mold-to-feet custom fit, genuine cork-covered soft, ultra-comfortable fit-bed and a versatile spikeless outsole, this shoe allows toes to spread and grip. Contrasting and tonal lace options included.
