880: Join me for my first experience at the 70th annual PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando Florida. Day One is called DEMO & Fitting Day. Each year this is where nearly 30,000 PGA Professionals, golf leaders, industry executives and retailers from more than 86 countries come together to meet with more than 800 golf companies to get hands-on experience and a first look at their newest products. In this episode, we’ll head out to Orange County National Golf Center featuring the largest driving range in the world and meet a variety of companies who have interesting and unique products. Each of these interviews are also available as separate videos at YouTube.com/@golfsmarter. Next week we’ll go indoors to the show floor and meet other interesting products.
