Molhimawk – Golf Bags2

magicbus Molhimawk was born in 2009, at the famous Olympic Club in San Francisco, during a post round cocktail. Two Northern California golfers, neither excited about the direction of the golf apparel industry combined with their mutual love for the game of golf, they decided to start their own brand - a NorCal Golf-Meets-Surf brand centered around fashion-forward golf bags. For the first year of their existence they struggled to come up with a name for the company, that would represent the argyle and bright colors they wanted to use their in bags. They decided on Molhimawk and the Albatross logo with an argyle pattern and things took off. Molhimawk makes high quality golf bags that bring life and color back to your foursome, they have since released a line of shirts and hats, with their eye popping logo, and we will be reviewing those in the coming weeks for you as well.Check Out the Full Review Here

GFore – Golf Gloves3

featuredgfore The other day while reviewing the Fall line up from LoudMouth Golf for 2013, I found myself saying a dark blue golf glove would match the new wind Jackets, just released by Loudmouth, perfectly. Oddly enough the next day, AGG had a package from GFORE waiting, and it contained a Dark Blue High Quality golf glove, that matched the jacket perfectly. The founder of GFORE Mossimo Giannulli comes from a Fashion background and you can tell by a simple jump over to their website. When going to GFORE's website you would think you are at Tommy Hilfiger or another big name in fashion's website; Mossimo has a great background in the fashion industry but a love for the game of golf, and that shine's through in the fun, bright, yet not gimmicky very high quality products he puts out. Fashion has been a part of the game of golf, since well it was a game and this year we have seen everything get a makeover, from shoes, pants, shirts, hat to yes even the golf glove itself, white and the occasional black are not your only options anymore.Check Out the Full Review Here

WristSkins – Swing To Cure1

This is a pretty simple product so it won't be a super long review, however the product has helped me out a lot because I loose ball Markers like it's my job. The WristSkins is a silicon bracelet that you wear while playing, that has three magnetic markers on it. Normally I hate having things on my wrist while playing, but the WristSkins are light weight and don't hinder your swing at all, while having your ball marker easily accessible so you don't have to fumble through your pockets to locate it. The bracelet comes in 4 sizes, so you can find the fit that is perfect for you and your swing. You can show your true fandom by getting a WristSkins with your favorite NFL, MLB, NHL or College team, as well as a few other cool designs, they also have created their own design called Swing To Cure. Their Swing to Cure line is a pink WristSkins, designed to bring awareness to Breast Cancer, and with it being Breast Cancer awareness month, what better month to tell the world about Swing To Cure than now? The great thing about their swing to cure line is 25% of the purchase goes to various Breast Cancer foundations, currently the money is going to LPGA player Morgan Pressel's Foundation.Check Out the Full Review Here

Bunker Mentality – Men’s Line2

golfstarpolo1 Most readers of my reviews know that I tend be drawn to some of the more flashy or trendy clothing on the golf market; so when Bunker Mentality reached out to AGG to test their products I was more than excited. Normally when we talk about golf clothing there are two styles we find, the very traditional and the Loud (LoudMouth or Royal & Awesome); however with Bunker Mentality's clothing line you get a little of both which I really like. One style polo might be very loud with crazy colors and designs, but a traditional look and the next might be very traditional in style and color but very loud with perfectly placed logo's. The best way I could some up Bunker Mentality for our readers, is Bunker Mentality is the Abercrombie of the golf world. That isn't a knock on Bunker Mentality that is just what I think of when I see their line of clothing, very hip and trendy apparel to look good on or off the course. I would expect Rock Stars that love golf to wear Bunker Mentality for their next round.Check Out the Full Review Here

Royal & Awesome – Golf Shorts0

20130903_200232 I have been getting bolder and bolder with my golf fashion in the last year, and great companies keep sending us more colorful and in your face clothing every day, the one thing I have realized is if something is good quality and comfortable I am probably going to wear it on the course. I recently received a pair of shorts from Royal and Awesome, and thank god I had my sunglasses on when opening the box because the my eyes were not ready for the brightness inside the box.

3-Bays – Golf Swing Analyzer (GSA) Pro0

download For those who don't know me very well, I have three real hobbies in life (well four if you consider whatever cartoon or activity my daughter is into that week), Golf, Sports and Technology take up a considerable amount of my daily life. That is why I was very excited when Stanley from 3-Bays GSA reached out to me, to review their Golf Swing Analyzer, it combined my love of Technology with my love of Golf. If you read my Rukket review on their high end golf net, you will know that I am big on Hank Haney's philosophy of taking 100 swings a day, regardless if you can get to the course or not. However the one thing I always say in regards to Hank Haney's advice is why just take 100 swings if you get no feedback, who knows if those swings are beneficial or if you are just practicing bad technique. With 3-Bays GSA you can take those 100 swings and get instant feedback, regardless if you are hitting a ball or not; you can even throw a wiffle practice ball down in the yard and get feedback like you are on the longest of driving ranges.Check Out the Full Review Here

Martin – Cotton Iisle Golf Polo1

20130810_200930 Yes, you read the title of this review right, a Cotton polo shirt; but before you hit the back button or close your browser this isn't your dads Cotton polo. When I first started playing golf, if it was a 90 degree day you wouldn't think about playing; the heavy cotton polo's were not only hot but they were heavy, and the minute you perspired in them, it felt like you were swimming in a pair of jeans. I still have many of these polo's in my closet and while I am writing this review, I am thinking to myself I am not so sure why because I will never wear them again; I am still amazed when I see them in stores and ask myself who buys them. The one downside to the new polyester blends that have hit golf fashion, is unless you have 0% body fat, the material shows the extra weight.Check Out the Full Review Here

Maxfli – U61

When I first started playing golf and even up until a couple of years ago, a golf ball was a golf ball to me. If it was round and white, I'd throw it on the tee and have a whack at it, not knowing I wasn't improving because my swing needed help but also because I wasn't using the right ball for my particular swing/game. Lately huge names on the PGA tour like Bridgestone have started to advertise that exact situation, and produce golf balls for varying skill levels and swing speeds. One name many probably don't think of often now-a-days is Maxfli, but they are making a huge resurgence in the golf world and at the center is their new golf ball the U6, the world's first 6 piece golf ball.Check Out the Full Review Here

Rukket – RukkNet Golf Net2

2013080395130655 How often do you get to the driving range? With a 21 month old, beautiful little girl at home, a full time job and taking care of the house, finding time to go to the range and practice is difficult to say the least. I am guessing most of our readers have a similar situation, life is busy and we aren't paid to golf so how do you improve your game when you can't be at the course practicing? The great teacher Hank Haney says to take 100 practice swings a day, you don't even have to hit a ball, just practice getting into the correct positions. I think this is great advice, however actually hitting a ball even if you can't see the trajectory helps with the follow through in my opinion; taking practice swings with out making any type of contact at the impact position just doesn't feel right. Rukket has the answer, a portable, easily set up and broken down golf net where you can hit actual golf balls into at full power.Check Out the Full Review Here

Bender Golf Gloves2

Bender So your belt matches your hat, or is it your shoes, and what matches your shirt? Yes, fashion has indeed taken over the game of golf; shoes are bright and have eye popping color, belts are no longer black or brown and shirts come in a billion different designs.

As a moniker we use a lot on this site, "Look Good Play Good", Bender Gloves gives you that extra touch of color to make your golf attire pop.Check Out the Full Review Here

SeeMore Putters – X4 Nickel Putter1

How many golf gadgets on the market have you tried? How many worked? If you are honest with yourself you answer is probably at least a few, like myself, every gimmick claiming to do something better than the gadget that came before. What gadgets have you used to try and putt better? What if I were to tell you the answer were as simple as two white lines and a red dot? You would probably laugh but I am here to tell you it is a fact, two white lines and a red dot will help you putt better, and SeeMore Putters are magicians behind this great trick.Check Out the Full Review Here

Frogger – Amphibian Golf Towel1

logo If you are anything like me, your golf towel is the last thing you think of before heading out for a round of golf; as a matter of fact my towel, before receiving the Frogger Amphibian towel, was given to me by my high school golf team 13 years ago!! I mean really what do you need a golf towel for besides wiping off some old dirt on your clubs or cleaning a ball because their was no ball washer on that hole? If you thought any of that, we were in the same boat, then I received the Frogger Amphibian Golf Towel and my views of the importance of the golf towel changed forever.Check Out the Full Review Here

GolfSark Apparel2

logo1 One of my more popular saying on this site is "Look Good Play Good", and while sometimes I throw it around as a joke I do truly believe that if you dress well you will have more confidence and therefore play better. GolfSark is a great new company, taking the classic polo look of this game we love and adding a fun twist to it. If you are tired of the same old golf shirts, GolfSark is for you, they take golfer inspired designs and make fun polo's for the course. A little about GolfSark taking from their website.....Check Out the Full Review Here
