The 2016 PGA Show’s Most Impressive Products

Part One

The 2016 PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando, FL attracted golf buyers and sellers from around the world to drive a 3 percent increase in overall attendance, despite the early-week Winter Storm Jonas impacting the East Coast of the United States. The top five countries (outside of U.S.) represented in attendance were Canada, United Kingdom, Japan, Mexico and Germany. The top five U.S. states represented in attendance were Florida, New York, Georgia, Pennsylvania and Michigan.

This year’s show was well attended by both exhibitors and visitors, even without familiar names such as Nike, Mizuno and Sun Mountain. For the first two days everybody seemed to be writing orders. Callaway, PING, Titleist, Bridgestone, Cobra and Tour Edge were consistently busy, as were Carnoustie, SunIce and Devereaux.

The Demo Day was the busiest I have ever seen and perfect weather was the order of the day.

Whether this will convert to an increase in business, only time will tell, though positive attitudes heard from attendees and exhibitors may warrant a better 2016.

These 10 products below, together with a brief synopsis, were those products that I felt deserved your attention, and they will be fully described in Part Two next month, as we conclude our product testing and evaluations of the below mentioned products.

GolfBuddy LD2 & the WT5 GPS Watch

The L1D2, GolfBuddy’s first foray into the ladies watch market, combines Swarovski crystals with a genuine leather strap, a stainless steel bezel and a mineral crystal lens for a crisp display. Each element has been designed to ensure a luxurious look and feel. The Swarovski crystals are produced with a light sapphire hue, while the interchangeable wristband is made with an alligator grain.

The WT5 watch is elegant and provides full targets and hazards information.

BioMech Acculock Ace Putter

2Heath Slocum, Tim Clark and Bo van Pelt use this putter. With scientific principles that produce a more natural and consistent putting stance and stroke behind this putter, and with its performance and aesthetics all working together, it all makes sense. The AccuLock Ace was designed with a forward shaft lean that allows the club grip to rest against the leading forearm during the stroke. To achieve the optimal forward lean and lie angle, the shaft was attached to the rear of the putter head.

The absolutely smooth roll and feel exemplify pure putting, resulting in more sunk putts! Another great attribute of this putter’s design is that it can also prevent and reduce back problems according to Dr. Frank Fornari and Dr. Gwen Bauer, the putter’s developers. BioMech has also partnered with the American Parkinson Disease Association (APDA) to reengage golfers and enhance the joy of the game to players impacted by Parkinson’s.

Laserlink

3Their two new products are simply marvelous and truly useful. The XL1000 is like nothing you’ve seen before from Laser Link Golf — their first “hold to your eye” rangefinder. A new design, new features, and new modes add a new dimension to the most complete line of laser rangefinder products in golf. The Swing Caddie 2 Portable Launch Monitor is amazing and gives Trackman a run for their money at considerably less cost. This company knows about distance finders and launch monitors, both of which will definitely make you a better golfer and enjoy the game of golf even more!

 

Stewart Golf

4The most beautiful, sleek and fun electric golf trolley available ever bought to market. Though very expensive, at least a $1,000.00 more than its competitors, this is the real McCoy! I love the way it follows you around the golf course.

 

 

Carnoustie

For the pas5t 20 years, Carnoustie’s premium golf apparel brand has been the choice of well-dressed golfers. Visit any upscale, daily-fee course around the country, what stands out in the pro shop is the Carnoustie brand for men and women. Their styles are not the cutting edge trends or tailored fit profiles so dominant today, but what you will find is a steady stream of timeless designs that are well constructed out of premium fabrics.

In my opinion, Carnoustie has the classiest, best looking and highest quality golf shirts currently on the market!

Krank Golf

This is t6he driver that the major driver manufacturers do not want you to know about. Its performance and distance can equate to 20 – 30 yards longer on every drive.

How could it not be good if it has won 8 Long Drive Championships? If I can achieve 18+ more yards, imagine what you can do!

 

PING G Series

As alw7ays, PING products are outstanding and this year’s G driver is no different. It is an upgrade to the G30 series, the best-selling driver of 2015. In fact, their whole new G Series of driver, fairway woods and hybrids, will markedly improve your game, especially if you take advantage of being fit by a certified PING fitter.

 

 

Bridgestone

8Consistent super quality product continue to emanate from this company. Their new JGR Driver and
JGR Hybrid Forged irons and their B series balls perform superbly.

Skechers

If yo9u are looking for one of the most, if not THE most comfortable golf shoe currently available, then Skechers is your answer. Matt Kuchar loves them and I truly believe you will be thrilled with the fit. I know I am. Spikeless and Spiked, men’s and women’s golf shoes are available in great designs.

 

 

Leupold GX-3i2 Range Finder

10
The King of range finders and GPS. Unrivaled quality, accuracy and aesthetics make their products
“want to have and need to have” instruments. The Fog Mode feature is awesome.

Nunchuk xi Shaft

nunchuck
Nunchuk xi shafts coupled with Boccieri Secret Grip equal amazing feel and results.

Developed by Nventix and manufactured by UST Shafts, these purple and grey shafts are lightweight graphite iron shafts weighing 104 grams and extremely stable.

They reduce vibration compared to steel shafts and according to their inventor, Gerry Hogan, their rigid tip and butt sections minimizes shaft droop, shaft twist and bend to give a golfer a better chance to hit the sweet spot.

The aforementioned also makes these shafts playable for a wide range of players.

Golfers should expect to impact the “sweet spot” of the clubface more often, with the clubface looking at the intended line of flight thereby producing better club head to ball speed efficiency and better accuracy.

Nunchuk shafts are different than other shafts on the market because they don’t come in different flexes.

By bringing their tour-proven NUNCHUK Tri-Zonal Stability precision technology to iron shafts, nVentix has produced a graphite iron shaft that is more consistent and accurate than steel shafts, but with the feel of graphite.

Each shaft cost $55.00

Having problems with your swing? – Fix your slice! by Johnny Miller

I recently was examining swing sequences of some of the greatest players in history. Knowing that some of these players favored a draw as their standard shot while others preferred a fade, I sought to identify swing features within each group that would explain their respective ball-flight tendencies. Something profound emerged that I think will benefit all golfers, especially those cursed with a wicked slice.

What I found was this: Virtually every accomplished fader of the ball–from Jack Nicklaus to Tiger Woods–displayed a straight left arm at the top of the backswing. Conversely, those who preferred a draw–players like Arnold Palmer and Bobby Jones–maintained a slight bend at the elbow.

This discovery is great news for most slicers, as they tend to do by accident what intentional faders do on purpose. In this article I’ll explain why the dynamic works, and how a simple swing change will make a powerful draw your standard shot.
