Next week, The Golfing Dads get to have a home game. We get to sleep in our own beds and enjoy the madness knows as “The Major of Golf Business,” The PGA of America Merchandise Show.
Annually, the Merchandise Show falls in the third week in January. It is the who’s who of the golf business industry. All the companies are there to show off their new items and what they have to offer. Callaway will be there with their new Rogue line. TaylorMade will have their M3 and M4 lines there too.
There are so many companies on the floor at the Orange County Convention Center it’s hard to keep all of them clear in your head as you go from booth to booth. There are companies out there from equipment, clothing, accessories, training aids, sun screen, apps, games, trophies, and so many other things!
This year the New Product Zone has some companies we are excited to see. The DeadZone Putting, Swing Wizzard; our friends from the ProPutt, FOCUS Putt Amazing, 5 Dudes Golf, and Short Golf. We are really excited to bring this to you the conversations we have with these companies and many others.
There are a lot of other companies we look forward to reconnecting with that we have met over the years and done a lot of work with. GolfTrainingAids.com, Cleveland/Srixon Golf, Dormie Workshop, Uther Golf Towels, Precise Golf, IceRays Solar Sleeves, Ampcaddy, Buggie Golf, Dirty Larry Golf, and Bradley Putters!
One of the cool things about the show is it brings so many people together. You never know who you are going to run into at the show. Getting to reconnect with people who you have known for years and this being the one place annually you may run into them is fun.
Dads Say So, there will be a large contingent of us going around demo day and the convention center floor to get all the information we can to pass on to you. We look forward to getting new products to review, having some great connections along the way and telling you all of the inside tips of what is new in the world of golf. Make sure you check us out on Instagram and Facebook as you never know when we may go live at any point to get you some cool information on the spot.
