My daughter Jackie joined us for Day 2. She's graduating in May and is interested in a career in PR or marketing - figured this would be a good place for her to learn. Lots of good folks from Wilson, Srixon and others shared their experiences with her. Not sure if she'll pursue a career in golf - but she gained a lot of knowledge. And we had some fun!!

Some of the nicest looking irons in golf - Wilson FG Tour 100's.

This is the Caddy Clean - that little club cleaning doo dad developed by 3 high school buddies. This is one of the kids - now a college freshman - and his dad. They took their idea all the way to the PGA show.

New milled putters from Burke - new to the US from Singapore. Gorgeous from the top, busy on the sole, but a wonderful feel. Look for these as a forum test/review this year.

Ping G410 - turned down to11.25 degrees, neutral setting - Fujikura Motore X R flex

Ping G410 5-9 wood

Wilson D7 forged 6-GW -  Mamiya recoil 460 R flex

SCOR 52,60

EVNRoll ER 5

Titleist Pro VIx optic yellow with revkev stamped on them

Currently testing Edison wedges to replace SCORS that are wearing out. Also auditions for the 14th spot in the bag.  Current possibilities are a Ping 26 degree hybrid - duplicates the 9 wood or 5 iron but would be used almost exclusively for chipping or Tour Exotics 3 wood simply because you can carry 14 clubs and I might occasionally hit it in certain unusual wind conditions once every four or five rounds.

Thought these were kinda fun. Thoughts on an MGS logo's driver stripe?

Thing started to get silly in the new product showcase. ...holeless belt with a HUGE buckle - cover comes off and you can stash your dough in it. Solving problems that don't exist.

More silliness.

Lift socks. Kentwool is not here - but Lift is. Similar tech - merino wool, but they're a tad lighter and a thinner. Not a lot, but enough to notice. Will try them out and see. These shown are a new material due out in the spring. Will keep you updated.

I like the Kentwool socks I have but they are noticeable thick, have not heard of Lift socks until now, I may investigate them and give them a try.  Great pics, keep up the good work!   What exactly is this?

Like the idea of the "Flat out tee" but I take divots and would imagine loosing a whole pack per round. Then asking my playing partners to help look for them would get old after the second hole.

Was at the show also,

I have a box of the P2 grips coming.

I was looking for the new products area and only found the pavilion, Only until we were leaving that I found in it in the daily rag in the map Duh!!

Hit the burke putters and agree on the assessment. felt good but the graphics on the bottom are terrible.

 

did you hit the V6 from Wilson,,,, very nice.

Liked the look of the black steelheads. can you say new gamers.,

 

based on the MGS review went to the MLA booth and the evnroll, time well spent. The MLA swings easy and the evnroll variety is very high.

working on a relationship for both.

 

did you see the sweep beep? and cool practice item.

 

Fat Matt was a great idea but a bit over the top in cost, the neuroscience items were winners, I just kept thinking of the of copper necklace commercials,,,,,

Really did like the Burke putters -- the sole patterns definitely weren't made for this market, but if the putter performs I could live with it.

 

Didn't hit the V6 at the show, but have been bagging them since September -- good lord they did a nice job with those!  Didn't hit the Steelheads - will have to give those a try soon.  Didn't see Sweep Beep or Fat Matt...
