Even if you sometimes need help opening the pickle jar, this new gear from Gold's Gym is still definitely worth a look. We got our hands on their Track Jacket ($40) and matching Track Pant ($35) and were really impressed with the quality and fit. Made of 100% Polyester Brushed Tricot, the jacket sports a full-zip front, zip pockets, a "Joe" logo on the left chest and "Gold's Gym" in script embroidery on the back of the right sleeve. We also got a Gold's Gym Burnout Tee ($30), which is just about the softest T-Shirt our feeble bodies have ever touched. It's been put through an extreme weathering process that put its on the verge of disintegration and gives it an authentic vintage look.
Keeping your golf game sharp during the winter months can be easier said than done, at least in colder areas. Now with the Golf Launchpad USB Golf Simulator ($250), you can get in practice on matter where you live. The USB accessory hooks into Tiger Woods PGA Tour from EA Sports, allowing you to play on some of the world's best courses with your own clubs. It works with PCs or Mac (a PS2 adapter is also available), but unfortunately doesn't guarantee to fix your slice in time for Spring. [Thanks, Larry]
