As Father’s Day and summer approach, it’s time renew the body, spirit and golf bag with new products. Here are a few of my favorites to get you into the summer and beyond.
Tour Edge Exotics C721 Driver
Perhaps the best driver of 2021 and the best driver in the 30-year history of Tour Edge Golf. It’s solid and forgiving, particularly off toe-hits.
The handsome C721 Driver ($399.99) features Tour Edge’s new Diamond Face 2.0 and the Ridgeback support system that provides power and feel. The Ridgeback spine within the Carbon Fiber crown, according to Tour Edge, acts as a brace to produce more power on center hit and allows for greater face flex in the heel and toe, meaning off-center hits achieve greater power and ball speed.
The 43 different diamond shapes of variable face thickness behind the face act as mini-trampolines to create faster ball speeds and expand the sweet spot to outer areas of the face.
Too much tech talk? Don’t worry… just swing away. There’s not an easier driver to hit on the marke
Ben Hogan Edge EX irons
Under the direction of President Scott White, the Hogan Company has emerged as the golf industry’s top online equipment company. The new Edge EX irons are the latest version of the original cavity-back forged irons created more than 30 years. Each set is custom-made.
Callaway Coronado v2 Golf Shoes
Stylish and comfortable, the Callaway Coronado v2 ($129.95) features a Forged Foam midsole that cushions your foot with every step. For greater stability and support, the shoe incorporates an external CounterLok heel stabilizer.
The Coronado v2 has a waterproof opti-dri microfiber leather upper and opti-vent mesh sock liner that provides breathability and heat management. The nine-spike TPU Fusion Lite outsole adds stability and traction on all types of terrain.
The Coronado v2 is available in white/blue/red, black, and grey.
New Balance Fresh Foam Pace SL
A terrific shoe at a terrific price ($99.95), the Fresh Foam Pace SL has been re-engineered to provide increase stability, support, and comfort. The midsole features data-driven concave geometric shapes on the lateral side of the shoe to deliver a soft, cushioned ride. Vertical convex geometric shapes on the medial side provide exceptional walking, stability, and support under the foot and arch.
The smart rubber outsole uses pressure mapping colors to highlight key performance zones during the swing.
The Fresh Foam PaceSL is available in navy/red, grey/blue, and black/multi for a suggested retail of $99.95.
Kentwool’s new limited-edition Spring/Summer colorways offer comfort and performance with style.
The four new colorways reflect seasonal color trends, as well as the company’s unique flavor. The color trends – Consisting of Lilac, Lush Green, Morning Blue, and Fawn – each are available in men’s and women’s sizes.
One of the more popular and least-known products on the PGA Tour, Forme’s Core Tee and sports bra designed to correct and train alignment of the spine/neck/shoulder/hip and increase joint movement, reduce injuries, boost recovery and provide better breathing for increased oxygenation intake. It is a sports and lifestyle wearable therapeutic.
A transformative solution to daily posture training and lifestyle improvement designed by Dr. Stephen Liu, has created the PGA Tour sanctioned Forme Tour to help disadvantaged, minority and Canadian players boost their careers.
The Forme shirt instantly pulls your shoulders down and back, correcting posture and stance for optimal form, comfort and breathing. Liu says Forme trains and nurtures body’s alignment, giving you posture that allows you to perform, think and live at your highest level while enhancing the fundamental basics of your biomechanics so that you can make the most use of your body.
Forme shirts are used on the PGA Tour by the likes Harold Varner III, as well as by athletes in the NBA, MLB and NHL.
Probably the best backpack you’ll ever own, the NOMATIC backpack ($249.99) was designed with versatility in mind. The patent-pending strap system allows you to go from backpack to briefcase carry. It’s comfortable on your back and made from durable, water-resistant materials and YKK zippers.

These are great products ($25 each), particularly for men who might just be getting into facial care. The Bad Ace face wash is a multi-purpose creamy wash that leaves the skin feeling clean without any film or dryness. It’s a high-quality charcoal powder and natural walnut shell scrubs to remove any dirt, oils, dead skin cells, blackheads, or impurities from the skin. The Bad Ace moisturizer is an everyday formula with charcoal that helps the skin fight against irritants and give off a healthy complexion.
