Cutter and Buck's diamond sweater

At the heart of Cutter & Buck’s new Autumn-Winter collection is a range of lambswool sweaters (£49.99) in colours which include blonde, watercress and dubonnet and zip-necks (£49.99) in black, grey, blue and navy. New colours for the brand's pique polos (£29.99) include lime, salmon tabasco and sand.

Green Lamb, official supplier to the Women’s British Open and Ladies Golf Union of Great Britain and Ireland, has launched two new collections. The Autumn-Winter 07 Collection features soft feminine colours including a pink lambswool Fairisle sweater, lambswool twisted cable cardigans and wind breakers.

The Sport Collection features cottons and performance fabrics including stretch panelled gilets and thermo trousers.

Titleist has announced it plans to launch 906F4 fairway metals - to deliver a higher launch and ball flight from the tee or the turf, designed with a lower, deeper centre of gravity. Adam Scott is already using the clubs on Tour.

The company has also refined its Red X putter line by Scotty Cameron with two new mallet models - the Red X3 and Red X5 - replacing the original Red X and Red X2 and with a Charcoal Mist finish


Trevor Immelman wears the latest Nike Sphere Macro React shirt

Nike Golf's latest clothing range is aimed at keeping golfers dry and comfortable in the heat as well as protected from the wind and rain.

The Tiger Woods collection includes a seamless herringbone mock shirt (£45) in black, blue recall and dusty red and a No Sew polo (£45) with strategically placed ventilation zones in colour options of black/atomic green, white/deep red and nightfall/white.

The tech elements range features vents that open when the golfer sweats and closes when dry for optimal cooling. The Nike Sphere Macro React shirts (£45) will be available soon in white, citrus zest/White and stone sienna/white.

Wilson Staff has confirmed that we can expect to see its ;latest version of the square-headed driver soon. The Spine driver will be available in the new year at under £300 in both right and left hand versions with 9, 10.5 and 12 degree options. It will be launched in October at the Golf Europe Trade show in Munich and be on sale in the new year.

Nike Golf is launching in the US its new two-piece KARMA ball, the softest the company has ever created with a compression of just 50 and a 312 dimple pattern to help get the ball airborne.


Ashdon Golf's Round-A-Bout putter

Hot on the heels of its Bermuda Triangle putter, Ashdon Golf is releasing its Round-A-Bout G-360 putter designed to reduce torque and eliminate backspin. The makers say the arch of the circle connects the heel of the putter to the toe to help eliminate and to give a solid feel at impact. The putter was recently named the No. 1 putter on the market by Rankmark, one of America's premier golf equipment testing companies.

My head is still spinning from the number of new drivers released by /TaylorMade in recent mlonths - and it hasn't finished yet, according to latest reports that the r7 CGB May driver is set to be before the end of the year with a price tag of just over £300.

As well as a high trajectory version it also comes in 9.5 and 10.5 with moveable weights that can determine ball flight at will - as long as you have a repeating swing.
