Follow GolfTEC from Jan. 26-29 as we report LIVE from the PGA Merchandise Show with Tweets, blogs and videos for an inside look at the epicenter of the golf industry

DENVER –  Forty thousand people. Ten miles of floor. One thousand companies. Everything you ever wanted in golf, all under one roof.

Yes, the PGA Merchandise Show is BIG. And I’m on my way to join the madness.

While this won’t be my first rodeo at the insanely-massive Orange County Convention Center, I’m blown away every time I first walk through the doors and am reminded just how big the game of golf is. Because the Show is, after all, the marquee event representing a $70 billion industry.

So, stay tuned for photos, live accounts from Demo Day and the Showroom floor, and interviews with anyone and everyone – maybe even appearances from a special guest or two – to ensure you’re up to date on everything the industry has to offer.

And when it’s all said and done on Friday, be sure to also look for the outrageously large coffee I’ll be drinking to keep from tipping over. Whew. Here we go …
