I miss Payne Stewart. What a player and what a person. Part of the uniqueness that was Payne Stewart was his apparel style. Knickers, sweaters, caps… the traditional look.
While at the PGA Merchandise Show last month I visited a booth of a new company which makes that sort of traditional style golf apparel. A very new company, Kings Cross makes classic golf knickers and apparel, right down to the shoes. Check out my video below and stay tuned as I’ll be doing a review of some Kings Cross apparel…when the snow melts.
One of my favorite golf companies is Kikkor Golf. Lets face the facts. Kikkor started the skate style golf shoe fad and the big companies have been copying Kikkor ever since. Over the years I’ve built up a good friendship with Kikkor founder James Lepp. You may recognize him from his runner-up finish on Big Break Greenbrier or perhaps his amazing college golf career at Washington where he won the NCAA Individual Championship.
This video below is 1 of 3 Kikkor clips from the 2013 PGA Merchandise Show. We talk about Kikkor’s footwear, but I also pick James’s brain a bit about the “process” of creating his products and what it takes to get them to retail. Interesting stuff.
Below is the 2nd (and now annual) video interview I’ve done with my Utah native pals at Switch Belt. Switch Belt is company based out of Provo, Utah which makes plastic golf belts. Check out my Switch Belt review.
In the video here we check in with Sam Clayton and see what’s on the agenda for 2013, and evaluate 2012. Things are looking good for this cool and young golf company.
Here’s a quick and fun video from the 2013 PGA Merchandise Show. This one is the Ogio X4 Synergy golf push cart. Before you comment that the cart looks too big when folded, this is a setup designed for golfers who want to leave the golf bag on the cart when folding it up rather than having to take the clubs off.
Since 2007 I’ve been visiting the Frogger Golf booth at the PGA Merchandise Show. Over the years I’ve put many of the great Frogger products into my bag. Their BrushPro is still my favorite golf accessory of all time. Most useful without a doubt.
In this video we look at the new Frogger products for 2013:
