ORLANDO, Florida (Dr. Barry Lotz/iG) — 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.

MISSOULA, Montana — The new Sun Mountain 2Five golf bag is now shipping. 2Five is the lightest, full-featured bag on the market weighing in at the scant two and a half pounds. Sun Mountain reduced weight by using carbon-fiber legs, high strength-to-weight plastics, and ultra-lightweight and durable fabrics like those used in mountaineering tents. 2Five is offered in 11 different colors at $219.99.
To put 2 ½ lbs. into perspective, that’s about the same weight as two wedges, or a pair of golf shoes, or three cans of a soft-drink. When you lift up the 2Five, it’s more like lifting off as the bag seems to launch off the ground.
