(From earlier in Part 1)
PGA SHOW COVERAGE – DAY 1 (PART 2)
Alright fellas…we just got back from the show and we are pumped to show you everything we saw…but first we thought we would kick off (Day 1) coverage of the 2010 PGA Show with something a little different then most other sites will be doing. Most the other sites are just getting their first looks at the equipment that we have already shown you guys sneak-peeks of month’s in advance. So we thought you guys might want to see some of the unseen gear first. Don’t worry though if you are looking for pics and videos we got plenty of them for you to see a little later in the week.
We have also put the best of the best from the 2010 PGA Show in a “Quick Reference Guide Type Format” so you don’t have to sift through all the stuff you don’t want to see.
“Golfer Gear Head’s Bible!”
The products I am referring to are the ones inside the “THE PGA SHOW DIRECTORY & BUYER’S GUIDE” book. This was always one of my favorite things to get when I first started going to the PGA Shows. I think it should be available to every golfer…not just the ones that get to go to the show. This is another reason I started MyGolfSpy…I wanted to give every single golfer the opportunity to see what all of us in the business got to see. There are always such amazing products at the shows…many of which might never be seen again for one reason or another. This PGA Show Guide back then was literally like the “Golfer Gear Head’s Bible!” it had every single exhibitor listed with all their contact info and web addresses. Only bad thing is there are usually over 1,000 different companies listed and the majority of them aren’t worth seeing. Nowadays…sites like MyGolfSpy show you a lot of this gear before the products are actually first launched to the public at the show…you guys are the very first in the world to see some of this stuff…but back then…this was the ONLY way to see all the new and exciting gear.
58 of the Coolest Golf Sites Today & More Tomorrow!
Soooo…what we have done is go through every single company that was listed in this guide and hand-picked the ones we thought had some of the coolest or just wackiest products we thought you guys would love to see! This way if you couldn’t make it to the show it wouldn’t matter…because we would show you all the good stuff anyways. And…you wouldn’t be out a couple grand from having to pay for the trip either 😉
NOTE: We have excluded most of the major OEM’s since most of us already know how to find them.
4 Days – 4 Different Formats!
We will also be breaking it up in to 4 different formats for you guys (Links, Photos, Videos & last but not least the MyGolfSpy Awards).
Today is Day 1 of MyGolfSpy’s 4-Day coverage of the 2010 PGA Show…It will be spread out over a 4-Day span…this way you don’t get fired from your job for looking at what we call “GOLF PORN” all day. Today you will start off by seeing the first half (58 Golf Sites) of the best products we found for you and tomorrow we will show you the rest of the links!
We have also included a screenshot for every single site and a short description just to make it easier for you to pick and choose what you do and what you don’t want to see. We are going to be giving you links today of 58 of some of the most un-discovered golf products…and a few that have already been discovered but ones you might be seeing more of in ‘10! Many of these products never make it to market…but that’s not because they don’t work. So check’em out…this should keep ya’ busy for a while.
P.S. – Don’t forget to check back tomorrow and the rest of the week for all the other companies we found for you and the *pictures* and *videos* as well…ENJOY!!
P.P.S. – Don’t forget to tell us which ones your favorites are. These guys I am sure would love to get the MyGolfSpy readers feedback.
