Products worth the price tag

The theme of this year’s “Best Of” franchise was essentials — welcoming in golf’s newcomers by outlining a range of products that will never steer them wrong. Sometimes, that means pulling the purse strings. But rest assured, while some of these items may carry a hefty price tag, they’ll never steer you wrong.

A pair of tech-forward earbuds

The new Bose Quiet-Comfort earbuds will transport you into your own zone during practice sessions. They’re designed with internal and external microphones to cancel out unwanted noise, and they have supersoft nozzles that contour to your ear to create a seal from the world outside. Quiet-Comfort earbuds also have intuitive touch technology, they’re sweat- and water-resistant, have Bluetooth connectivity and six hours of battery life. Dial up your favorite playlist and you’ll feel right at home on the range.

An always-reliable rangefinder

The Bushnell Pro XE is a compact, waterproof unit that packs a punch. It offers a slope function that evaluates elevation changes, temperature and barometric pressure before delivering an exact number to the target. It also boasts a range of 1,300 yards, 7x magnification and a pulsing red ring that reinforces when you’ve locked on to the flag.

A sturdy and trustworthy travel bag

The Sun Mountain Kube travel cover can go anywhere. When extended, it protects your clubs with a plastic shell exterior and a padded interior. It has two wheels at its base. It’s available in eight colors. The Kube can also be stored anywhere because it folds up into a tidy and compact cube.
