PGA Merchandise Show 2017: Aftermath
The SwingTrack team was at the 64th PGA Merchandise Show last week and we had a blast! It’s always great to see new golf products and tech and we’re never disappointed with what we find at the show. The show this year attracted more than 40,000 golf industry professionals, 7,500 PGA professionals, as well as 271 new companies to the PGA Show. Welcome to the PGA Show family and glad to have you aboard!
Being at the PGA Merchandise Show, there was no shortage of great products and services that we found exciting as both golf players and golf industry professionals. Among the announcements of cutting-edge golf clubs, high-tech training gadgets, and industry news were a slew of new innovations and products that really stood out of the crowd at the PGA Show. These were recognized during the show as the the 2017 PGA Merchandise Show Award Winners. Some memorable finds include the beautifully hand-crafted Bradley Putters, silly-yet-functional Golf SwingShirt, and the absolutely ridiculous “Bubba Jetpack” from Oakley. Needless to say, we had a great time at the show.
The PGA Show is not only a great way to showcase our SwingTrack Studio software for those looking to boost their golf game, but to introduce people to the flexibility and value that our simulator supplies with its multi-sport functionality. While we love golf and love playing golf, we wanted to promote an active lifestyle with our simulator that gets everyone on their feet and into the game. We found that the best way to do that was to offer a variety of sports like basketball and soccer in order to appeal to a wider audience of sports fans. New to our suite of sports and games is our Hunting Pack, which introduces a hunting simulator as well as a carnival-themed shooting gallery as a fun alternative. Show attendees got to try out these new additions and we got a great response!
As we bid farewell to the PGA Show this year, we’re excited to see what the future holds for us as well as the golf industry. Until the next time!
