In her latest round-up of all things golf equipment, Hannah Holden purrs over the latest GPS technology, Cobra's new retro iron, and Ocean Tee continue to impress
It’s not just the PGA Tour that’s back this week, I’ve finally got some new equipment releases to talk about as things return to some sort of normality. Where better to start than with the new Tag Heuer golf watch?
Tag Heuer Connected Golf Edition watch
Tag Heuer have joined the golf GPS game with their Connected Golf Edition watch.
The watch and the associated app have almost 40,000 courses pre-mapped. Course missing? They’ll have it on there within 48 hours. All the functions you expect are here, and after each round you can get a series of insightful statistics, including putting average, longest drive and score distribution.
But two grand for just a golf watch? Don’t be silly. This is as useful off the course as it is on it. Not only does it look great, but you can track running, cycling, walking and workout sessions.
You’ll have to wait for the full review for more. That’ll be later in the year once I get my hands on one of these beauties.

Cobra King Utility iron
Finally, some new golf clubs to talk about! And it’s in the shape of a new utility iron from Cobra.
Modern technology combined with classic styling, Cobra say the muscleback design provides controlled ball flights while the wider sole and hollow body give you stability and power.
They feature Cobra’s MyFly8 technology, which provides the user with eight adjustable loft settings so you can dial in your preferred trajectory and make sure your clubs are perfectly gapped.
And, of course, the Arccos-powered Cobra Connect is integrated.
More on this once I get one in my bag.
Available: June 12
RRP: £169/179 (steel/graphite)

Stromberg Ocean Tee polo shirt
Ocean Tee have had a busy lockdown. The brand has also teamed up with Stromberg to create a new eco-friendly polo shirt.
The athletic fit polo is available in black and white and is made from 100% GOTS-certified organic cotton. This ensures no chemicals are used in the farming and production of the textile and that that the product has been manufactured in a socially responsible and environmentally compatible manner.
The Stromberg Ocean Tee polo is also made in the only factory in the world to have met the textiles procurement standard set by Greenpeace.
It will be available exclusively at American Golf and Ocean Tee donates 25% of corporate profits to charities focused on tackling plastic pollution and promoting the health of marine environments, as well as charities focused on promoting sustainability in golf.
