Latest Fashion Trends at the 2015 PGA Merchandise Show.

At this year’s PGA Merchandise Show, approximately 1,000 leading companies and attendees from all around the world have gathered together to check out the latest golf apparel, accessories and equipment! Golf Channel has been providing “Morning Drive” coverage that airs from 8:30-11:30 am. To begin the show, Bubba Watson officially welcomed all attendees to open the PGA Show from the Main Lobby, while PGA President Derek Sprague as well as thousands of other attendees watched. PGA Professional, Tara McKenna, of Fort Myers, Florida, states, “The first day of the PGA Show has been exciting, fun and very crowded. It’s busy, busy, busy.

For those in the golf industry, this is like Christmas morning.” McKenna has attended every single PGA Show since 1991! Additionally, panelists brought PGA Show attendees up to speed in regards to the 2016 Olympic Games! It has been approximately 111 years since golf was last apart of the Olympic Games, but it will soon be returning once the golf course is finished being constructed. The 2016 Summer Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil are closely approaching, and a panel met yesterday morning on the PGA Forum Stage b OMEGA in order to discuss how close the golf course is to being fully constructed, as well as the excitement for potential Olympic golfers.

Peter Dawson, President of the International Golf Federation, Ty Votaw, VP of the IGF, LPGA Tour player Suzann Pettersen, PGA Tour player Graeme McDowell, former LPGA Tour player Amy Alcott and Gil Hanse, President of Hanse Golf Course Design, made up the panel.

Dawson states, “Golf in the Olympics is the biggest grow-the-game opportunity we have. The growth of the game is worldwide. Golf in the Olympics will lead to extra exposure and extra government support for the game.” Bubba Watson also presented to the attendees about how he works the golf ball just like he did in Augusta, his social media usage as well as what it is like to win the Masters.

When describing the setting of the Champions Dinner at Augusta, he states, “Whether you’re 92 or 35, like I was, when you have the green jacket on you’re 12 years old. When we wear the green jacket it turns us all into kids. It’s great to see because it reminds me of why I play golf.” In addition to enjoying the game of golf, Watson also thrives on “doing weird stuff on social media.” In regards to this, he states, “If it’s the golf course, baseball field, football field or the doctor’s office, it’s tough to really see who a person is. Social media is a way to interact with fans and show them who I am as a person.” In closing, Watson took questions from the audience! The PGA Merchandise Show will be held until January 23rd in Orlando, Florida!
