The Perfect Golf Grip at the PGA Merchandise Show 2019

We attended our first show PGA Merchandise Show this year from January 22 to 25th in Orlando, FL. Post-show we’re pleased to say that we’re very excited about the future and were humbled by the intense positive feedback from so many top professionals in the industry.

In case you haven’t heard, the PGA Merchandise Show is an annual convention where thousands of new and well-known brands in the golf market get together and launch their new products and apparel, including equipment, golf carts, stylish resort wear, course maintenance products, and in our case, training aids.

Preparing for the show

In terms of marketing and preparation, this was an undertaking. We’re a relatively new business, a very small team of golf-loving entrepreneurs, handling the operations on the back end and striving to make this awesome new product more visible to the golf market. The 2019 show was our first time attending as exhibitors, and with a bit of uncertainty as to proper preparation, expectations and outcomes, many questions were asked, and we learned what we can do better for next time.

Simplicity is the key concept behind our product and we portray this through sleek and effective branding, online presence, and booth setup. Booth signs, team polo shirts and relevant marketing materials maintained a simple, cohesive, and to-the-point layout and design. We wanted attendees to immediately recognize our logo — whether spotted in the New Product Zone, on the Expo floor, or on our team’s shirts and flyers throughout the show. After all, we’re showcasing a very simple yet effective product, requiring no more than a sleek glove and grip — and did we mention it’s legal for competitive play?

In preparing it was important to keep our main objectives in mind and set clear goals around the outcomes, as much as we could considering our lack of experience with previous trade shows. Main objectives included:

  • introducing the Perfect Golf Grip to the world as the first golf product that guarantees every user a perfect grip every time
  • meeting with key decision makers from golf clubs and academies around the world
  • making new friends in the golf industry and brainstorming new ideas
  • becoming aware of competitors and trends in the marketplace
  • and of course, getting our name and our faces out there

During the show

During the show we met with decision makers, golf shop managers and buyers, golf writers, and instructors from all corners of the globe. Visitors to our booth showed genuine interest in this simple yet effective new product, and many specifically inquired about products for juniors. We noted this as something to look into for the future — perhaps the next addition to our product line.

We were featured in the New Product Zone alongside other first-time exhibitors and new products to the market. Here we had the opportunity to present the product and all of its wonderful benefits on stage, to an audience. Brian Mogg participated in the presentation and offered his professional insight, including his real-life experience with the Perfect Golf Grip as a day-to-day training aid in his golf academies.

Exhibiting in the New Product Zone gave us another opportunity to meet with visitors who may have missed our official booth. Here they were able to touch, feel, grope, grip, swing, and learn more about the product.

We informed visitors that the Perfect Golf Grip is the ONLY gripping product that absolutely guarantees the user a professional golfer’s grip no matter their playing level. We wanted each visitor to know that the Perfect Golf Grip:

  • is easy and simple to use
  • conforms to the rules of golf
  • guarantees the perfect grip, and
  • offers the highest quality tacky grip

Our takeaway

Overall the show was a success. There as an overwhelming amount of excitement and positive feedback from PGA instructors, academies and members of the press.

We gained new insights and answered many questions. We became acquainted with an international golf community. We observed other products and trends in the current and emerging golf market.
There was genuine interest in our simple and easy-to-use product. General consensus was that it’s a very good idea, useful for beginners and advanced golfers alike. While we currently only offer men’s left handed variety, there’s demand for a junior version of the product especially, among instructors and academies, in addition to a women’s product as well as right-handed gloves. We’re looking forward to nurturing close relationships with buyers and retailers in the coming months.

Some things to do differently next year would be expanding the product line to include juniors and women’s products. A larger booth may be in the works as well, with space for a hitting mat where our booth visitors can try out the product for themselves. Overall we’re excited about the future and humbled by the positive feedback from the golf industry. The Perfect Golf Grip is definitely the next big thing in golf!

Rangefinder

A rangefinder during your golf game is a must-have if you’re looking to land your ball right on target – and who isn’t? Know exactly how far your ball is from you by using laser and GPS technologies. The benefit of this investment is in the quick, accurate distances, allowing you to improve confidence and commit to shots more easily. With a laser range finder you will know the exact distance within inches. Some units offer a “slope” feature which calculates the effective distance factoring uphill and downhill shots. Downhill shots will go further while uphill shots will be shorter. GPS rangefinders use satellite data to measure the distance between your position (longitude and latitude coordinates) to calculate your distance to a certain number of fixed targets – usually to the front, middle and back of the green while some also include distances to nearby hazards like sand traps or water hazards.

The latest and greatest feature HD optics, ultra-accurate slope readings and GPS technology. Check out these and more on Amazon:

Pushcart

Forget the golf cart – New Years resolutions are coming up in full swing, and it’s time to do some more walking! Grab one of these for the holidays and introduce your favorite golfer to the joys of walking the course and enjoying the scenery, rather than flying though at golf cart speed.
Some things to consider when deciding on a push cart:

  • Size when folded – will it take up too much space in the trunk?
  • How easy is it to open and close?
  • Stability in the case of uneven terrain
  • Extra features such as storage space and a cup holder
  • Too many moving parts could mean more opportunity for broken parts, down the road

That being said, check out these best-selling options on Amazon:

Lightweight & Stylish Self-Standing Bag

The options around golf bags used to be much simpler – it was a cart or carry bag. Now there are many sub-categories to fit the needs of any golfer. There are ultra lightweight bags, waterproof bags, and bags with beverage pouches and charges for electronic devices. There are waterproof bags for those misty mornings before the dew has evaporated from the course.

The many options you might encounter include:

  • super lightweight
  • includes beverage pouch
  • charges electronic devices
  • attachment system to lock bag to pushcart
  • small, single-strap without a stand for an easy fit in the trunk of a car

As with the pushcart, too many bells and whistles leave more room for dysfunction in the future. Make a wise choice to fit your unique needs with this variety of options from Amazon:

Multi-Functional Money Clip

If you’re on a budget this holiday season, here’s a gift for anyone to appreciate. Keep your bills and plastic on you at all times, intact and out of sight in your sleek form-fitting golf pants.
Some are multi-functional and include a pocket knife, making this an extremely practical gift for on and off the course!

Here are some options from Amazon:

Loudmouth Pants

Okay I couldn’t help myself – here’s a sixth item. These fun and festive pants make a great addition to your golf holiday collection!
Check out the options on Amazon:

And there you have it! This should make your holiday shopping for your favorite golfer a little less time-consuming and a little more fun. For many golfers this is more than just a hobby, it’s a lifestyle, so get them a gift that counts!
