Mizuno 630 Fast Track driver £220
An ingenious C-slot enables you to move weights around the sole of this driver to alter your shot shape or help cancel out a nasty hook or slice.
Ping G15 irons £80 each
Ping is famous for irons that are supremely forgiving of mishits, and the G15s are the company's most forgiving so far.
Odyssey Backstryke Marxman putter £140
The first two major winners of 2010 used Odyssey putters, so there's no doubting the pedigree. This unusual model has the shaft mounted right at the back – hence the name – and sports Odyssey's trademark face insert for soft feel.
Titleist Pro V1 balls £35 per dozen
The majority of pros use them, and there's nothing stopping you trying their renowned soft feel. If they're too rich for you, try the cheaper Wilson Staff DX2 Soft balls.
Royal Albartross Black Jack Nero shoes £345
Hand made in Italy, this is about as luxurious and comfy as golf shoes get. They also feature a clever magnetic ball marker.
Adidas Retego sunglasses £120
Justin Rose is sporting a custom pair of these at the 2010 British Open, but us blundering hackers can still benefit from their unrestricted view and interchangeable lenses for prescription-lens wearers.
Peak Performance Golf Flex jacket £195
It might be mostly sunny right now, but you can never trust the British weather – get yourself a nice waterproof jacket like this lightweight Gore-Tex Paclite number.
Golfshot: Golf GPS app £18
A digital scorecard, as well as giving layouts and GPS distance calculations for over 30,000 of the world's courses. Golf apps don't get better than this.
