You can now fully customise your TaylorMade wedges, while Ocean Tee launch a recyclable t-shirt. You don't want to miss our latest gear round-up
We may be in lockdown but that doesn’t mean there aren’t lots of shiny new products in the world of equipment for us to swoon over. So we might as well get on with it…
Personalised TaylorMade wedges
If you’re into customisation you’ll want to check out TaylorMade’s new MyMG2 personalised wedges.
TaylorMade already offer numerous customisation programmes, such as the MySpider range, but now they’ve opened it up to their Milled Grind 2 wedges.
Not only can you set up the spec of your wedges perfectly by selecting the grip, loft, lie, length, and shaft type, you can now have a fully customisable personal design from paint colour down to stamping.
And if your initials or a quote doesn’t take your fancy, there are also dozen of images available for stamping too. As well as picking from four different wedge finishes – cobalt nickel, chrome, black and raw – you can pick from 13 paint colours for that all important detailing.
I’m not going to lie, ever since I saw the cactus stamp option I’ve been counting down the days until these were released. A shiny new wedge with customised stamping is a necessity for post lockdown golf. Right?

Ocean Tee decomposable t-shirt
Ocean Tee have unveiled the first item of their new clothing line, the Mako polo shirt, named after the endangered Mako shark. It aims to combines stylish design and athletic fit with materials that conform to the very highest environmental and ethical standards.
The fashion industry is the second most polluting industry in the world behind only the oil industry but Ocean Tee are set on changing that. The Mako is the first golf garment to use the world’s first non-toxic and biodegradable elastane.
The shirt is made from organic cotton mixed with a biodegradable elastane called Roica Eco-Smart, meaning the shirt can be recycled or the constituent fibres will naturally break down overtime.
Of course the packaging is also sustainably sourced using recycled materials and 25% of the Mako profit will be donated to charities that are focused on tackling plastic pollution, promoting the health of marine environments and promoting sustainability in golf.

Wilson unveil new tour bag
Other than the eye-catching look, the new bag features the classic red and white Wilson branding, with prominent black lettering and the Wilson Staff crest.
The new design was inspired by the feedback from tour players and caddies. It contains seven storage pockets, including waterproof pockets for cell phones and electronics, velour-lined pockets for valuables and insulated sleeves for drinks.
To mark the new release numerous stars took to social media – where of course Padraig Harrington stole the show…
