The PGA Show in Orlando is always a highlight on my golfing calendar, and this year was no exception. With the sun beaming down and the excitement palpable, the four-day extravaganza was a whirlwind of innovation, inspiration, and, of course, some serious golfing gear.
As our team from moregolf.ca stepped onto the vast convention floor, we were greeted by a sea of booths, each one promising something new and exciting. With nearly 1,000 brands in attendance, it was a golfer's paradise.
Demo Day kicked things off with a bang at the Orange County National Golf Center, where we had the chance to get hands-on with the latest offerings from industry giants like Titleist, PING, and Callaway. It was a fantastic opportunity to test out the newest gear and get a feel for what's going to be hot in the upcoming season.
One of the highlights of the show was getting up close and personal with the legendary Brad Faxon, who was on hand to showcase Titleist's new SM10 line of Vokey wedges. His short game clinic was a masterclass in finesse and precision, and it was a privilege to learn from one of the greats.
The following day, the excitement continued with a special opening event hosted by the Acushnet Company. With Jim Nantz at the helm and special guest Brian Harman, the 2023 Open Championship winner and Titleist Brand Ambassador, in attendance, it was a celebration of the game's rich history and bright future.
Throughout the show, we rubbed shoulders with some of the biggest names in golf, from the legendary Annika Sorenstam to US Open Champion Matt Fitzpatrick and three-time World Long Drive Champion Kyle Berkshire.
Of course, no PGA Show would be complete without checking out the coolest displays from our key ClubLink vendors. From cutting-edge equipment to stylish apparel, the booths from Titleist, FootJoy, PING, and Callaway had us drooling with anticipation for the upcoming season.
As our time at the PGA Show came to an end, we left feeling inspired and energized for the upcoming season. The memories we made and the connections we forged will stay with us for a long time to come.
