February 2016 The 2016 PGA Show took place in Orlando at end of January and as always was a golfer's dream. The world's biggest golf show is a Willy Wonka land of everything from the ingenious to the downright wacky. T he show attracted 40,000 guests and had over 1,000 exhibi- tors. As always the week kicks off with "Demo Day" where the big club manufacturers set up around an enormous 360 degree driving range (at orange County Nation- al Golf Club) and allow professionals and guests the chance to test their latest clubs. Though the morning is supposedly reserved for club pro- fessionals and media, in reality thousands gath- er. It's like Croke Park on All-Ireland Sunday as amateurs, enthusiasts and chancers all sneak in for a lash and it always descends into the inevi- table happy scrum. Inside the halls of or- ange County Convention Centre you are looking at nothing but golf, golf, golf over thousands of metres of floor space. Clubs, balls, training aids, GPS devices, simulators, bug- gies, clothes, shoes and about 100 other catego- ries besides; from the big manufacturers to the lit- tle guy who remortgaged his home just to patent a golf tee with a little angled bendy bit on top that he claims makes the ball go farther!
