Women’s FootJoy emPOWER
FOOTJOY has introduced a progressive new golf shoe for women, called emPOWER. Designed with bold, athletic styling, emPOWER provides a comfortable, eye-catching, lightweight and spikeless footwear option that performs. emPOWER’s distinctive look begins with a BreathEasy sports mesh upper. The colour-splashed upper delivers premium breathability, keeping the foot cool throughout the day, while providing two-year waterproof protection. From a performance perspective, MaxGrip traction pods are integrated into the outsole and provide the additional traction to make confident swings throughout the round. As with all women’s shoes in the FJ line, emPower was created specifically to deliver comfortable performance. Developed on the women’s Power Last, emPower offers a rounded, athletic toe character and generous fit across the forefoot with a slightly narrow heel. A new, soft underfoot foam provides EveryStep comfort and a massaging footbed ensures comfort throughout the round. “When we speak with female players during our market research visits, the two most important shoe attributes they request are, almost unanimously, comfort and style,”  says Mike Foley, director of footwear marketing at FootJoy. “The emPOWER shoe was made to address those two attributes head on by combining aggressive, contemporary styling with innovative underfoot comfort features.” Suggested retail price: emPOWER with BOA $229.95, emPOWER $199.95 See more at

Callaway Great Big Bertha Driver

Callaway Great Big Bertha Driver
THE Great Big Bertha Driver from Callaway is back, with a multi-dimensional design that features a low centre of gravity and high Moment of Inertia (MOI) to deliver distance with forgiveness. The light, fast and stable chassis is the key to generating higher clubhead speed. And with the perfect combination of aerodynamic shaping and multi-material construction, it comes with all the bells and whistles to set the club configuration to suit your swing type – adjustable loft, draw bias, perimeter weighting and various weight configurations from 295 to 325g.

Next Gen R*MOTO Technology provides the design structure for a thinner face, which leads to higher ball speeds on centre hits and off-centre hits. Adjustable perimeter weighting adds stability and forgiveness, moving the weight to the point on the clubhead that delivers greater dispersion control based on your swing characteristics. The Great Big Bertha also offers you virtually unlimited draw and fade bias options – all without sacrificing forgiveness. Like the perimeter weighting track, Callaway’s Optifit hosel provides simple adjustability by allowing you to choose from eight different configurations to tune loft, lie, and face angle. Available in RH/LH, 9, 10.5 and 13.5 degrees with a recommended retail price of $649.99.  For more information, go to

King Cobra Ltd Driver

King Cobra LTD Driver
THE King has returned. Greg Norman won two Majors and was No.1 in the world for 331 consecutive weeks. The Shark is a true legend of the sport. And King Cobra was the backbone of his success – the innovative technology that drove his play. Now King is back, with another product that is worthy of the name – Rickie Fowler. The King Ltd Driver represents Cobra’s finest technology without compromise. Created with premium materials and state-of-the-art technology, the King Ltd is Cobra’s longest and straightest driver. Most drivers on the market have a centre of gravity positioned above the neutral axis line, but King Ltd is Cobra’s first driver to get it to the neutral line (Zero CG), thus delivering a more efficient transfer of energy at impact without sacrificing forgiveness. What does this mean to golfers? More distance through higher launch, less spin and more ball speed. For more information, go to
