ANALYZES YOUR CONSISTENCY


The iPING Putter App for the iPhone or iTouch analyzes your consistency based on stroke type (how much the putter rotates), impact angle (the face angle at impact) and tempo (the duration of the backswing relative to the forward swing). Consistency is computed over a series of fi ve putts where your information is displayed and stored. Ping staff pros such as Hunter Mahan or Bubba Watson have their information included for comparison’s sake on the free app. The cradle (sold separately) attaches your iPhone to your putter’s shaft to closely analyze stroke


LARGE SWEET SPOT


TAYLORMADE’S R11 line expanded with the introduction of the R11 irons. Designed for “game-improvement”— a euphemism for the large percentage of golfers who don’t regularly break 80—the irons lose the clunky look of a bogey golfer’s club in favor of a sleek, streamlined shape. Refi ned feel and sound are part of a design that includes a large sweet spot and red weight on the back of the club that virtually guarantees getting the ball airborne. MSRP: $799 (steel), $999 (graphite)

The shoes mold to your feet and have a versatile sole that provides traction in sand, rough or any uneven lie. Multiple fl ex points ensure grip and stability. The thin outsole brings the foot even closer to the ground. A two-year waterproof guarantee and overall light weight are holdovers from previous iterations of the popular Tour 360 line. MSRP: $190

MORE POWER AT IMPACT


The biggest difference between the PING G20 and last year’s model (G15) is that the head is slightly heavier to produce more power at impact. Additionally, the G20 has a contoured back of the clubhead similar to the K15 and a metallic black head with two wing shapes for centering the ball. Arguably, the main drawback is that Ping hasn’t followed suit with other club manufacturers (i.e., TaylorMade, Titleist, Nike, Cobra) by creating a driver with adjustments. MSRP: $350
