I’m getting excited for next week’s PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando, Florida. I’m stoked to see most of my golf pals and golf business associates. There are many cool activities planned so far other than the show itself. There’s a glowball tournament Friday night, I’m touring Golf Channel’s facilities on Friday and I’m playing golf with my pals from Black Mesa Golf Club on Wednesday.
4th Annual Battle of the Golf Blogs
The BIGGEST and most prestigious event in Orlando this year however, is the 4th annual Battle of the Golf Blogs. The event pits the web’s popular golf bloggers against each other in an intense competition for one year’s worth of bragging rights online, as well as big money.
This tournament started as a duel between myself and Orlando Golf Blogger Dave Lair three years ago. It has now grown into a four man competition with the addition of Rob Hayashida from Sandbox8.com and John Duval from Into The Grain. Next year we hope to add more competitors.
This year’s competition will be held at the fantastic Nicklaus Course at the Reunion Resort (image right). Many thanks to our friends at Reunion. Rest assured, there will be many hundreds of photos of the course and the competition posted.
Sponsors for the event are literally breaking down the doors! We’re amazed so far. Current sponsor list as of 3:47pm ET today include Srixon Golf (balls), Loudmouth Golf (shorts/pants), Champ Tees, Asher gloves, Quagmire Golf (shirts), Kentwool Tour socks, Frogger Golf (accessories).
