Over the past few days in Orlando, we have had the chance to get back on the show floor of the PGA Show for the first time since the pandemic hit… and just like in previous years, we were wowed by what the golf manufactures are putting out for 2023 and beyond.
The PGA Show, organized by PGA Golf Exhibitions and the PGA of America, began in the trunks of cars at a winter golf tournament in 1954. It now encompasses the entire West Hall of the Orange County Conference Center.
One big thing we saw this year, is the inclusion of more tech products to help your performance on and off the course. Companies such as Therabody and other golf recovery-based companies are aiming to limit injury to golfers as well as decrease the away time from the course with stretching aides and tensing units that you can take on the road anywhere you play golf.
Unique products like a mini speaker from TECTECTEC with built in GPS yardage are just some the new innovation that aims to keep you the cool guy or girl on the course. We will have a bit more of a detailed review on their product over the new few weeks.
As always, the big golf players like Callaway, Titleist and Mizuno, Cobra and Puma Golf put on a show with quite a few new releases and some big new footwear and apparel changes from Puma Golf have had everyone spending quite a bit of time seeing what they had to offer.
If you are looking for one thing you should add to the bag in the equipment department, the Titelist Limited Edition T100 Iron in the black color just is a must for all golfers. We had a chance to try this club on demo day and it the weight combo with the stock shafts gave some great ball control off the club. If you add a custom grip and perhaps change out for a custom shaft, these could arguably be some of the best Titleist has released to date.
We will wrap up our show coverage tomorrow and look forward to showcasing some of the great products over the next few weeks.
