7 Golf Promotions Making Strides at the 2016 PGA Merchandise Show
The PGA Merchandise Show is underway in Orlando, Fla., bringing with it a slew of new golf products from shirts to caddies. The editors at Golf Digest have been surveying the show floor, compiling a roundup of the latest "cool stuff," which includes a handful of promotional products.
Check out these seven golf promotions on display at the PGA Merchandise Show to see which promotional products are a hole in one. (See what I did there?).
If there's one thing I learned from the one time my friends made the mistake of trying to teach me how to golf, it's that shaky hands are a golfer's nightmare. I also learned that you can't just throw the ball into the hole when you get frustrated (who knew?).
These Golf Pride Tour SNSR Grips are sure to keep golfers' hands steady on the green thanks to their pistol-like shape.
A Pitchfix is a handy retractable three prong tool created to avoid marking up the green incorrectly. It's the perfect addition to any golf bag, and thanks to the array of available bright colors, you can even match your logo to the item. Check out the Pitchfix 3 Pin Twister from Simba for more promotional ideas.
When your end-users are perfecting their strokes on that quiet green, the last thing they want to deal with are bulky sunglasses (and raccoons). Thanks to foldable sunglasses, they can easily pack away their sunglasses in their pockets for compact storage, and a cool party trick. Check out the Foldable Iconic Sunglasses from WOWLine to put your client's logo on this glare-free look.
Organization is key to a good golf game, along with actually being good at golf. (Can you tell I'm bitter?). This Links & Kings Trunk Caddy from the show floor can store everything neatly from gloves to golf balls. If you're looking for an opportunity to add your branding to a golf caddy, check out the Club House Travel Kit from Norwood.
No longer do end-users have to wait for a trip to Hawaii to don tropical prints. Bonobos is bringing a fresh take on the classic look to the green, so expect to see more of this island style in 2016. For a promotional take on this style, check out these Tropical Print Camp Shirts from Edwards Garment.
Today I learned that a ball marker is not a Sharpie for drawing on golf balls, but instead a way to label your golf ball. Ball markers are an ideal promotional product because they're easy to imprint and they're a lasting way to ensure your branding is visible on the golf course. Check out these Laser Engraved Ball Markers from Golf Tee Printers for more ideas.
I must admit I was a little surprised to see trucker hats in the Golf Digest roundup. Is it time to dust off my old Von Dutch staple? According to the PGA Merchandise Show, trucker hats are trending on the green. While this means I can relive my glorious preteen years (shudder), it also is marks opportunity to brand these hats for your golf-loving end-users. Check out the Classic Trucker Hat from Hartwell Industries for a promotional twist on this retro style.
