Kikkor Golf Shoes – 2013 PGA Merchandise Show Interview With James Lepp

kikkor_golfOne 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.

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:

  • Swing Hero training aid
  • Arc Angel putting aid
  • Golf Cart Poncho – portable/light cart cover

Cool And Convenient Golf Invention Reduces Practice Green Wear And Tear: Push N Putt

I’m rolling out my videos and posts one day at a time from the 2013 PGA Merchandise Show.  That way each one gets some good air time, rather than posting 100 of them at once.

Today’s feature is the Push N Putt.  This is a cool invention I found in the Inventor’s Area.  The Push N Putt is for practice greens and allows the player to push the top of the mini-flagstick to get the golf balls out of the hole.  Saves on wear and tear of the practice green. Very neat!
