The 2014 PGA Merchandise Show kicks off Tuesday with the Demo Day at Orange County National.
Measuring more than 40 acres, the circular practice tee at OCN is a sight to see for any golf fan — especially the golf equipment nut. Seemingly every golf company and product will be well represented at the PGA Show’s Demo Day.

Here’s a look at the products, companies and themes we’re excited to follow at this year’s Demo Day:
1.) True Temper: The game’s leading shaft manufacturer — and official shaft company of amateurgolf.com — is promoting its recently- released XP series shafts. Made for more power, speed and distance, the XPs will be on showcase during Demo Day and patrons will have the opportunity to participate in the XP Challenge. The winner will receive a new set of shafts and a beautiful custom- made Harley Iron Sportster.
2.) Ping Golf: With its newly-released i25 Series, Ping has already generated buzz around its products and we’re truly excited to see the series and the rest of the Ping lineup. Geared towards a wide range of players with a wide range of skill levels, the i25 series — which includes a driver, fairway woods, hybrids and irons — could become one of the year’s best selling and performing models.
3.) Footjoy D.N.A.: Following its release of its M Project shoes last year, Footjoy recently unveiled its latest shoe — the D.N.A. Made with more technology than ever thought available, it’s the most advanced shoe yet and has been marketed to be the perfect blend of style, functionality and comfort. We’re excited to run through Footjoy’s fitting process and see what its newest shoe is all about.
4.) Callaway Drivers: Callaway came through with a terrific showing at last year’s PGA Show and we’re excited to see what it brings to the table again this year. We’re especially excited to try the brand’s two newest driver models — the Big Bertha and Big Bertha Alpha and the X2 Hot and X2 Hot Pro. The Big Bertha family, a redo on the old Big Bertha drivers and woods that found their way into almost every bag in the 1990s and early 2000s, is back with a full compliment of drivers and fairway woods for men and women. The X2 Hot and X2 Hot Pro family is a full range of clubs, including drivers, fairways, hybrids and irons. We heard they’re long…
5.) Titleist’s Presence: Always understated, Titleist rarely disappoints with its presence at the PGA Show. We’ll hear plenty about the company and its 2014 initiatives and focuses on Wednesday when the show floor opens. At Demo Day, though, we’re excited to see its latest offerings. In particular, we’re excited to get a hands-on look at the 714 series CB and MB irons as well as the newest Vokey Spin Milled wedges and the Futura X Dual Balance putter from Scotty Cameron.
We’ll be sure to report daily on the top products, most interesting storylines and themes, so be sure to follow the action here or on our Face book and Twitter feeds.
