We gave an editor $100 to spend in our Pro Shop. Here are his picks

Even if you're on a tight budget, it's possible to add some swag to your style.

How best to spend — or splurge! — your golf dollars? Whether you have $50 or $500, check out GOLF.com’s new How to Spend… series, in which our own staffers take a designated amount of play money and go shopping in GOLF’s new Pro Shop. The goal here is to not only tell you about the products we love, but also to help golfers find items they might like — no matter their budget. You can visit GOLF’s Pro Shop here.

It’s no secret that golf can be an expensive hobby. From clubs to balls to a dependable bag, those costs can add up quick. But even if you don’t have deep pockets, that’s no reason to think you can’t have style on the course — you just have to be smarter about how you spend. Being a mid-20s, fresh-out-of-college lad, I know a thing or two about making my money stretch. Here’s how you can spend $100 in the GOLF Pro Shop and add some swag to your game.

A stylish mask

These days, it seems as though you can never have too many masks. So why not spruce up your mask game with a few that show your love of the game? In a collaboration from GOLF and BreakingT, you can get a three-pack of these convenient masks to keep you looking good (and staying healthy!) from the 1st tee to the 19th hole.

All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team. If you buy a linked product, GOLF.COM may earn a fee. Pricing may vary.

A casual (and stylish) cap

In my opinion, any piece of golf wear should be able to be worn on and off the course. That’s just what you’ll get with this stylish hat from TravisMatthew. It’s wearable in just about any setting, so you’ll get plenty of bang for your buck with this cap.

TravisMathew The Patch

$29.95
The TravisMathew Patch cap rocks a Southern California aesthetic and clean, subtle patch on the front. It has a slightly curved bill to block the sun and looks good on and off the course.

Balls that perform

If you want a ball that will perform on the course but won’t cost a fortune, look no further than the Srixon Z-Star. These balls might not be flashy like a Vice ball or have the reputation of a Pro V1, but they’ll get the job done each and every round. If you want maximum distance and zippy spin around the greens, these are the balls for you. Plus, they feature the letter “Z.” Who doesn’t love the ring of that?

Srixon Z-Star 6

$39.99
The new Srixon Z-Star 6 golf ball sports the new and innovated FastLayer Core which is soft in the center and gradually becomes firm around its edge to offer high-speed players exceptional feel and tremendous ball speed for maximum distance. The fourth-generation SpinSkin™ coating with SeRM maximizes spin for additional control and stopping power while the 338 Speed Dimple pattern offers a longer, more efficient flight.
