- Every January, golf’s most prominent equipment companies travel to Orlando to showcase their latest and greatest travel, play and preparation products. Here are some highlights from the 2020 PGA Merchandise Show.
Following up on the success of last year’s No. 1–selling driver, Callaway has introduced the all-new Mavrik Driver series. Each of the three models—Standard, Max and Sub Zero—is uniquely built using artificial intelligence; the result is a winning combination of lighter titanium faces with carbon crowns, “cyclone-shaped” heads and broader impact zones, allowing for maximum moment-of-inertia contact and directional forgiveness. But don’t just take our word for it: Presidents Cup champion Xander Schauffele can be seen using the new model. $499; callawaygolf.com
Master craftsman Bob Vokey’s newest line of Titleist Vokey SM8 Wedges has reached new heights by shifting forward his patented progressive center of gravity, thereby improving distance, feel, stability and trajectory. Available in six sole grinds and four finishes, the wedge is used by over 60 PGA Tour players and has already produced champions in Tyler Duncan and Cameron Smith. $159; vokey.com
Easy Being Green
The golf industry continues to introduce more environmentally friendly products, but Sun Mountain has set a new standard when it comes to stylish sustainability: Each of its new Eco-Lite Stand Bags is constructed from 25 recycled plastic bottles. This electric-green head-turner is durable, roomy, lightweight (less than 4 pounds) and offers plenty of practical pocket space, plus the E-Z Lite Dual Strap System for comfortable portability. $219; sunmountain.com
Let the Golf Times Roll
Clicgear has launched the Cart 4.0, a model that’s lighter, smoother, more durable and more compact than its previous version. It also boasts increased storage, better braking, decreased bag chafing and more easily adjusted strapping. And with nine color schemes, it’s a brilliant way to let the golf times roll. $259; clicgearusa.com
Odyssey, known for being the “No. 1 Putter in Golf,” has introduced the new Stroke Lab Ten Black Putter with a focus on a multi-material shaft and head construction to increase stability and consistency in a player’s stroke. Even Phil Mickelson said, “The first few putts I hit with this putter, I noticed a real difference.” $299; odysseygolf.com
