Just a couple of relevant ones, off the top of my head.  Composite non-metallic materials (shafts), improved steels (shafts, heads), grain aligned casting steels (heads), composite rubbers (grips),  surlyn (balls), miniaturised electronic gyroscopes, gps, metallised plastics (sunglasses) and of course velcro.
