VICARIOUS GOLF VTOWEL ELITE

WHAT: It seems impossible to believe that there was much room for improvement with the basic golf towel. A group of recent college grads (average age 21) in Ireland has decided, however, to give it a go. More of a total club cleaning system, the VTowel features a microfiber towel loop affixed to a mounting mechanism that encloses an arc of scrubbing bristles.

The VTowel comes in a variety of color combinations and surely beats wiping that wedge on the back of your pants leg. The VTowel is available only in Ireland, but the lads are hoping to bring it to Stateside bags.

Nearly 400 years ago, an imaginative golfer filled a horsehide sphere with goose feathers and let it dry into a hard, tight and light sphere. In that moment, golf's first gadget guy was born.

In the centuries since, there has been an endless array of products, inventions and ideas developed with the simple goal of making a ball go straight and far. Some caught on -- nobody actually plays with wooden woods anymore -- while others fizzled. Below are some of this year's models, products designed, often by small startup entrepreneurs, with better golf in mind.
