The winter leagues have begun, jumpers have been unpacked and woolly hats donned for winter golf, which means the latest clothing from Ping and Adidas, designed to keep you warm and playing in the coming months, is very welcome. We’ve also got the return of a legend, two new putter designs from Cleveland, and new irons from Callaway.
Ping AW 2016 range RRP: from £70 www.ping.com Ping has unveiled its latest clothing line for autumn/winter with technical performance at the core of its design. The Sensor apparel, featuring Sensor Dry, Sensor Cool and Sensor Warm, is designed to ensure every layer meets the demands of the game – from base layer to outwear – with lightweight, low-bulk layers featuring industry-leading fabrics and technology.
Callaway steelhead irons RRP: from £649 www.callawaygolf.com The instantly recognisable Callaway steelhead design is back again for 2016 with the launch of the Steelhead XR irons. Aimed at game-improvers, the latest iteration combines playability with increased speed and distance delivered through 360 Face Cup technology, which allows the edges of the ultra-thin face to flex and release at impact with greater efficiency.
Cobra KING Oversized irons RRP: from £699 www.cobragolf.co.uk Cobra has unveiled a new version of its largest irons ever, the KING Oversized, promising the company’s biggest iron sweetspot. The new design is at the USGA’s COR (coefficient of restitution) limit – the maximum efficiency with which a golf club can transfer its momentum to the golf ball. All that means the new irons deliver greater speed and distance. Simple!
Adidas AW 2016 range RRP: from £14.95 www.adidas.co.uk/golf First showcased at The Open Championship, Adidas has released its clothing range for autumn/winter 2016, promising to keep players “geared for more”.
