Demo Day at the 2016 PGA Merchandise Show was a non-stop adrenaline rush of blissful disarray that just kept me coming back for more... and more... and more. I literally hit thousands of balls, as many clubs as I could, and took more than 600 pictures and videos.
I'll have a full recap of the Show when I return home, including tons of pictures, videos, interviews, and who I thought were the big winners. And of course I might have a giveaway as well.
In the meantime, here are a few sights and sounds from Orange County National Golf Center.
Me walking through the front gates of Demo Day.
New SM6 wedges from Titleist.
TaylorMade M2 driver, wood, hybrid, and irons.
Bubba Watson showed showed up to put a few swings on the new Ping G driver and sign some autographs.
New Ben Hogan Golf PTx irons and VKTR hybrids.
And finally, what might be one of The Show's biggest surprises so far, Nike Golf was not in attendance.
At a minimum this seems to signal big trouble ahead for the brand played by two previous No. 1 Players in the World.
Check back often over the next few days as these Quick Recaps will be updated daily throughout the week as time allows.
And as always, if you have any questions, shoot me an email here, or DM on twitter @PGAPappas.
