William J. Murray Clothing line

Yes, Bill Murray has a new clothing line out.

The William Murray Golf line will break away from traditional golf apparel companies by bringing a new look and feel to the industry with a little irreverence and a lot of style. The style will truly be first-of-its kind in the golf world and not one you'll typically see on the course. The incredibly fashionable line will consist of uniquely designed polos, shorts and hats. And even a golf buttoned down, which has become Bill's signature look on the course. Bill was actually recently seen wearing one of the WMG polos at the Ryder Cup the other week. Here is an awesome photo with him in the gear.

With the launch, golfer Pat Perez, one of the more unique personalities in the game today, will also officially start serving as the first WMG ambassador. Pat will be outfitted in WMG gear while on the course.

1. Titleist's DT TruSoft golf ball

If you can't hit those "hard core" golf balls, Titleist has a new soft ball that is forgiving and softly lands on the green.

Retailing for $21.99, the DT TruSoft is the end product of tedious research and development on Titleist's part. Made right here in the USA, in Massachusetts, the ball offers a new core and cover that will please many a golfer. Golfers should find that the DT TruSoft improves distance on drives and long irons while improving touch around the greens.

2.  Under Armour - Eyewear with Game Day Lenses
All for a price of around $100

Under Armour's partnership with golfer, Jordan Spieth received much press in 2015 with his play on the course and visibility off the course. Basketball star, Stephen Curry is another brand ambassador for Under Armour and he was in the spotlight as he and his teammates march to an NBA Championship. Now with a full line of eyewear, Under Armour has all the bases covered.

Enter their Game Day Lenses with a special color enhancer that comes in handy on the course. What you get is a better look at moving objects, quick and accurate recognition and processing, along with sharper on-field contrast. This makes reading greens and the contours of a course easier and it could help speed up those five-hour rounds you seem to get caught up in each time you pull your golf bag out of your trunk. Any of the frames with Game Day Lenses will work with ball sports.

The Under Armour Igniter 2.0 is a durable and comfortable frame with a titanium base. Unparalleled strength and frame flexibility that last and perform. When you combine the Game Day lens with the frames, users get 20% more peripheral vision and a lens coating that guards against scratches, smears and smudges. Yes, these frames will last more that six months. Remember, these lenses block 100% of UVA, UVB and UVC rays you encounter in life. Quite simply, the blues are bluer, the greens are very green and the ball is whiter than ever so you can follow the ball flight to the ground.
3.  Antigua's 2016 Exceed Long-Sleeve Shirts Designed for Ultraviolet Protection

Antigua's new Exceed long-sleeve polos for 2016 incorporate a UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) 50 rating. They also look good and are a high tech long sleeve golf shirt.
Similar to the SPF rating system used for sunscreens, a garment with a UPF of 50 blocks 49/50ths or 98 percent of UV radiation, allowing just 1/50th of it falling on the surface of the garment to pass through. In this case, a UPF 50 factor is incorporated into Antigua's Exceed solid-colored, long-sleeve polos, which are 100 percent polyester micro flat pique with Desert Dry™ Xtra-Lite D²XL moisture management. It's offered in men's and women's styles. Then men's has a three-button placket, flat knit collar and open cuff that comes in a choice of white, dark red, dark purple, dark royal, navy and black. The women's features a three-button Y-neck placket, flat knit collar and open cuff, and comes in a choice of white, dark red, dark royal, navy and black.

6. Bio Mech AccuLock Ace Putter

AccuLock ACE is their latest putter and since it was designed from the body out, the developers say it takes the thinking out of putting and frees up your movement to hit the putt you want. The putter has a PGA Tour professional singing its praises is Heath Slocum as he put it into play and is having success.  “It just feels natural and more athletic. To me it’s just easy and makes sense.”

Dr. Frank Fornari is one of the inventors and co-owners of BioMech, he and BioMech's John Cunningham are traveling around the country hosting clinics and showing golfers what the AccuLock ACE can do for their golf game.

Note: The AccuLock ACE is designed so that the grip rests against the inner portion of the forearm, stabilizing the hands, arms and shoulders (a method that will remain legal after the anchor ban on Jan. 1, 2016)
Have a great Thanksgiving.
