I had a fun day hanging out with the folks from Nike Golf at the 2011 PGA Merchandise Show Outdoor Demo Day at Orange County National. Nike Golf had all of their new 2011 equipment available for testing, and Nike Golf’s area was busy the entire time I was there. You can see what the exhibit area looked like in the photo gallery at the bottom of this post.
The highlight of the afternoon was a demo and Q&A by Nike athlete Suzann Pettersen, who talked about the new 2011 equipment, hit some shots in a pretty stiff left-to-right wind, and answered questions from the audience. I recorded the entire demo, you can view the video here. And after the demo I had the opportunity to do a quick video interview with Suzann in which she shows us what’s in her bag and talks about her goals for the 2011 season.
I also had the chance to talk with Tom Stites and get his thoughts on the 2011 equipment line, you can see the video here. Also on display was Nike Golf’s new mobile pro shop, and Nike Golf’s Director of Apparel Sales Tim Cook talked to me about the 2011 apparel collection and the mobile pro shop concept, which you can hear about in this video.
All in all it was a fun time at the Outdoor Demo Day. On Thursday morning I had the chance to check out the Indoor Show, you can read about that here.
