We have just returned from the PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando. We had a number of meetings with some of the biggest vendors in golf. There are some exciting products on the market this year for adults and juniors. The SJ Junior Tour is bringing back some great offers for its families.
Closeout Shoe Deals
We were able to secure a large quantity of closeout Puma Golf shoes. We certainly realize how quickly kids grow out of golf shoes. We have in stock a wide variety of styles and sizes ranging from size 7-13. All priced well below $100. They are at an outstanding price point. Styles and quantities vary by size so contact us and we can let you know what inventory is on hand.
Cobra/Puma Golf will once again be a SJJT sponsor this year. We have negotiated discounted apparel and equipment from Cobra and Puma. Before you head out to shop for 2014 merchandise email us to check our pricing. More details coming soon on this great deal.
PGA Show – Best New Product….Game Golf
A big signing was going on while we were standing in the Game Golf booth. The PGA of America and the Golf Channel both signed on to endorse its product. Game Golf is a revolutionary new product that has been used in the testing phase for 2 years by Graeme McDowell. They have also recently added Jim Furyk to its stable of Tour Pros.
What is it?
Game Golf is wearable technology that is about to change golf for everyday golfers. Everyone is familiar with ShotLink data provided for PGA Tour players on TV. Game Golf is bringing that technology to everyday golfers. Game Golf will likely be the future of golf as we know it. . You will be seeing and hearing about GameGolf ALOT this year.
Game Golf tracks your round. Shot by shot. Club by club. It builds a detailed performance history of every shot you hit. Every round you play. How far do you really hit every club in your bag? Number of fairways hit? Greens in regulation? Where are my misses going? It will all be tracked and shown to you with very specific details.
It is an easy way to track your stats. Track your progress. View the strengths and weaknesses in your game. It will allow you to share your rounds with other golfers via Facebook and Twitter. It will provide you with more detail than ever about your game. You can go to the driving range, a golf lesson, or the course better prepared than ever. It is one of the more exciting products I have seen in a long time. It will have a huge benefit to junior golfers as well as adults.
Game Golf is currently unavailable anywhere. The product is set to release soon. In talking with the VP of Sales the supply will not meet the demand. 4-6 weeks is the minimum it will ship. And that is if you can get your hands on one at all. The rumor in the booth was that only one large retail store will initially carry it. I cannot say what store but it has a fruit logo and sells mobile devices. I also cannot say that Danielle somehow talked them into giving us one of the handful of devices ever produced to take home for testing. Not sure how she did it but it’s fun to have one. 🙂
BIG NEWS FOR SJJT FAMILIES
In talking with the GameGolf VP of Sales, we were able to negotiate a prebook for SJJT families that would allow us to be at the front of the order list. It could be months before they will even become available at any location if their
suppliers can not keep up. GameGolf will retail at $249 and we are told this price will not be discounted below this by anyone this year.
The SJJT has negotiated a limited number of GameGolf devices that will ship in their initial shipments. They are telling us that we will be sent an order in the first run of devices. Hopefully available in 4-6 weeks.
GameGolf is very cool technology for juniors and adult. It is one of the most comprehensive pieces of technology I’ve seen in a long time. Review the links below for more detail. If you are interested in being on our Prebook list please email us and let us know ASAP.
The following press releases and links will show more information on Game Golf.
