In need of an upgrade this golf season? You could do a lot worse than outfit yourself with the clubs of the latest Masters champion. Bubba Watson used a custom — and very pink — Ping G20 Driver ($300) to crush his drives off the tee, then followed those up with a healthy dose of G20 woods, Ping S59 irons, Ping Tour-W wedges, and a Ping Redwood Anser Putter to seal the deal. Green jacket not included.
We've seen several GPS-enabled golfing assistants, but the trouble with those is often simply remembering to bring them along. The Garmin Approach S3 ($350) alleviates this problem by taking the form of a touchscreen GPS watch, giving you handy access to data for over 27,000 courses worldwide — including distances to doglegs, layup points, and pins — a rugged, waterproof body, and a "digital caddy" to keep track of your strokes.
With March Madness coming to a close, now is a perfect time to reminisce and remember a game 30 years ago that launched the record-breaking career of His Airness. The Michael Jordan x Converse Commemorative Pack ($TBA) celebrates MJ's game-winning jumper in the NCAA title game by packing a size 13 pair of Converse Pro Leathers and a size 40 number 23 UNC jerseys, both of which arrive in a handsome wooden display case. Limited to just 30 sets, each is individually numbered and is being auctioned off on eBay, with all proceeds going to the James R. Jordan Foundation. [via]
Like most other wares we've seen from the designer, these James Perse Skateboards ($TBA) are a perfect mix of retro and modern. Inspired by vintage '70s skate decks, they're made using solid walnut planks that are accented by solid wenge strips for a bit of extra style and stability, and feature high-performance trucks and vintage-style wide polyurethane wheels.
You'd think that with a name like that, Dual Snowboards ($265) would be something akin to a snowboard cut in half. And you'd be right. These unique fiberglass and poplar boards come in sets of two, attaching to each foot independently, allowing you to perform a myriad of tricks — including basically anything you can do on a traditional snowboard — all while having the freedom to walk and maneuver like a normal human.
