Drive for Show
If you’re looking for a new driver in 2020, those were on display in a big way at Orange County National. We walked around and gave them a few swings for ourselves and came away pleased with how many great options are out there for golfers of all abilities.
Miles of aisles of fun
About 10 miles, to be more specific. And we covered all of them (multiple times over, according to our fitness trackers).
Hailey Hunter continued to explore all the great items on display inside at the Orange County Convention Center throughout the week.
The American Development Model
One of the most educational opportunities of the week was to sit and listen to some of the top coaching authorities in the world discuss the new coaching model that the PGA of America is implementing across the country.
It’s called the American Development Model, and it’s revolutionizing the relationship athletes have with sports to create life-long participants — as well as stronger Olympic champions.
Officials from the USOPC, USTA and academia were on hand to discuss the impacts of the ADM and how it’s set to revolutionize the game of golf.
PGA Coach profiles are coming
Building upon the new vision for PGA.com and the revolutionary coaching methods in the American Development Model is the building blocks for how golfers and coaches will be able to communicate.
PGA Professionals at the Show began to sign up to create new profiles that will help golfers more easily connect with coaches that line up with their needs.
Great fashion on display
Sure, the golf clubs and new golf gadgets are cool, but it’s all about looking stylish on the course as well while you’re playing your best golf.
