Casey Jones Golf at the 2009 PGA Merchandise Show

Casey Jones Golf exhibited at the PGA Merchandise Show last month in Orlando. We really gained some traction in the “golf gifts” sector, as dozens of club professionals and golf directors showed genuine interest in our unique product line. We even sold some display samples right off the wall, including a special “Ms. 59” scoresheet I did for Annika’s historic accomplishment in 2001.

Our “booth neighbor" at the show was Seaforth Golf, a company out of Canada that manufactures rain hoods for golf bags and other foul weather accessories. Founder Carolanne Doig is a real sweetheart, and I was pleased to find out that this small-town operation is the number one choice of rain hoods on all major professional tours (over 90% of PGA Tour pros use Seaforth products)!

I saw Tour pros Boo Weekley and Will MacKenzie at the show making sponsor appearances, and many of the LPGA's top players were also on the scene. I had the privilege of meeting some famous golf bloggers, Tony Korologos from Hooked on Golf Blog (check out this entry), and Neil Sagebiel from the Armchair Golf Blog (check out this entry). Thanks, guys, for your continued support and positive p.r. work for Casey Jones Golf.

All in all, the PGA Show was a great experience and has definitely started a wave of momentum for my business. Stay tuned for some inside-the-ropes stories from my last three weeks out on Tour.
