At $25 per dozen, Maxfli Noodle Spin balls offer a lot of distance for your dollar, without the harsh feel of a traditional long-soaring ball. Add spin that gives it a quick bite on the green, and suddenly you've got game. maxfli.com

Best wait 'til the foursome ahead is off the green before you tee off with the Wilson Deep Red II driver ($449). The weight pad is deeper in the clubhead, creating a higher launch angle and a larger sweet spot. wilsongolf.com

Scoff at afternoon downpours with the Adidas short-sleeve ClimaShell Storm Rain Jacket ($120). Sealed seams and covered zippers keep you dry; short sleeves and breathable fabric keep you comfortable. Together, they keep your game on par. adidasgolf.com

Your caddy. Your weatherman. Your GPS. Your PC. And, yes, your watch. The Suunto G9 ($725) provides course information, tracks your distance from the tee, suggests the proper club, gives instant feedback on shot length, keeps score-and never talks in your backswing. The best news? The marshals haven't caught on yet. suunto.com

The X-Sports Mach X's ($130) Met-tex fabric is a built-in raincoat for your stand bag. The UV- and water-protected fabric doesn't fade and keeps your clubs dry-even when you get wet. xsportsinc.com

Find forgiveness with Taylormade rac OS irons (set of eight: steel shafts, $736; graphite, $960). Two pockets in the back cavity allow your swing a little wiggle room and make your sweet shots even sweeter. taylormadegolf.com
