The 2011 PGA Merchandise Show will be remembered as the year of the driver. Taylormade and Cleveland Golf stand out in my mind. I had an opportunity to hit both drivers on the indoor driving range and I loved them both. Watch out for these drivers next month at your local golf stores.
The lack of minority participation at the 2011 PGA Merchandise show. Again I had a flash back of 2004. I didn’t see enough minority faces in the place and that needs to change.
The PGA of American needs to help reestablish the African American Golfers Digest Diversity Pavilion. In order to bring true parity and growth to this show the diversity pavilion is a must and I would hope that the PGA of America will partner with the African American Golfers Digest to help bridge the gap of diversity in the golf business.
