2018 Orlando Golf Show


Last week I attended the 2018 Annual Orlando PGA Golf Show. The attendance was 40,000+ with lots of buzz about new equipment and technology. I attended the Demo Day on Tuesday - tested new product and was very impressed with the Ping Senior G400 GMax Driver with a 40gram shaft. Other noteable new equipment......

*M3 and M4 Twist Face Drivers fromTaylorMade

*G700 iron from Ping - first hollow body iron

*Lynx back in the golf business

*Titleist Vokey SM7 wedges- featuring new grinds

*TaylorMade Spider Putters with Blast Motion Analysis

*Callaway Rogue Irons, Woods & Hybrids

*Maybe our game needs the latest in Golf Underwear? Check out 2UNDR - not sure but maybe??

Saw Kerrie Webb at the Demo Day - she is Australia's most successful female golfer and one of the great players in the history of Ladies Golf. Kerrie was inducted into the Golf Hall of Fame in 2005.

Charlie Rymer was also in attendance - Charlie keeps us all entertained each week on the Golf Channel.

Later in day while enjoying a coffee I had a chat with Jim Dent - It was nice to reminisce about our days on the mini tour. He was the longest hitter on tour for many years.

Lunch with Dr. Bob Winters, resident Sports Psychologist at the David Leadbetter World Teaching Headquarters is always a high point in my week. Dr. Bob and I always have lots to catch up on since being roommates back in 1971 at the Arnold Palmer Golf Academy.
