You can't always make it to the range, but you can make sure you get your swings in anyway with the Range To Go. This portable mat offers three hitting surfaces that simulate the tee, rough, and fairway, all in a design that folds up to about the size of a laptop bag. The surfaces themselves are made from high-grade synthetic turf, the 16-inch width is ideal for helping to promote a proper stance, and the included nylon bag makes it easy to keep with you. For those times when you don't have the space needed to work on longer shots, pack along the Callaway Tri-Ball Hitting Net and swing away.
It may be cold outside, but that doesn't mean you need to put your short game on ice. With one of these Brunswick Putting Greens, you can keep your putter hot all winter long. They're available in a variety of sizes — from 2' x 8' all the way up to 4' x 20' — individually handcrafted in the USA from hardwood and advanced artificial turf, and offer between 50 and three million possible break combinations depending on the model, created by moving the manual levers on the sides. Included is a matching putter rack, so you can leave the rest of your clubs stored away until it's time to hit the course.
You're probably (definitely) not going to be the next Michael Jordan, but you can improve your pickup game by putting in some work with the ShotTracker. This intelligent system includes a sensor that hangs on the net and another you slide into your wrist band or sleeve. Link them up with the companion app, and you'll be able to track your shot attempts, makes, and misses, letting you get detailed analysis that you can use with the built-in workouts to identify and fix the holes in your game before your opponent exploits them.
Many of us might not hit the course again 'til 2015, but that doesn't mean you can't work on upgrading the gear in your bag. The TaylorMade R15 Driver is a good place to start. The company's most advanced driver yet, it builds on the SLDR by incorporating a front track system that expands the sweet spot, decreases spin, and moves the center of gravity lower and towards the front. And with dual sliding weights, you can custom tailor the club to match your swing like never before.
