MIZUNO BR-D4 stand bag For most golfers, the ideal golf bag weighs next to nothing yet is loaded with features and capacity. Which is why your Utopian model may well be Mizuno’s new lightweight BR-D4 stand bag. For when you want to drive, there’s a cart-strap channel that lets you easily and securely fasten it to the vehicle’s belt. And when you’re walking, you can be confident in the comfort of its padded double shoulder straps. In addition to dedicated pockets for apparel, golf balls and valuables, there’s an insulated cooler pocket and a separate insulated drink pouch—and a magnetic pocket that should help keep those ball markers from disappearing down into an abyss. $200. mizunousa.com FOOTJOY RainGrip gloves Sometimes rain comes into play on the course. Any kind of hat can keep water off your face, but you need good rain gloves to keep your hands dry and some traction with your grips. If a glove is too slippery, you will completely lose control of every shot. Thankfully, there are FootJoy’s newest RainGrip gloves that feature perhaps the best wet- weather traction control around, along with improved breathability and comfort. This latest version also appeases the many tour players and amateurs who wear older RainGrips as their everyday gloves, in muggy climates. Plus it magnetically houses an included ball marker. The glove is offered in two colors, and a wide array of sizes. $25/pair. footjoy.com CLEVELAND GOLF Smart Sole 3 wedge The Smart Sole 3 wedge comes in two versions. Designed specifically for golfers who struggle with short-game shots, both models have a new, three-tiered sole that induces smooth turf interaction on bunker shots, chips and full swings. Plus, the loft on each wedge makes it easier to get shots airborne. “We designed these with the widest, most forgiving sole of any Cleveland wedge,” says Jeff Brunski, the company’s director of research and development. “That makes getting out of bunkers as easy as possible.” $130/graphite shift, $120/steel. clevelandgolf.com Statement of Ownership, Management and Circulation (Required by 39 USC 3685) Title of Publication: Virginia Golfer.
