2019 PGA Merchandise Show – Teezy Award Nominees

It’s that time of the year. With the 2019 PGA Merchandise Show in the rearview mirror I’ve been giving lots of thought to nominees for the 2nd Annual Teezy Awards – PGA Show Edition.

Deciding on nominees and winners for this prestigious title isn’t an exact science however there are certain parameters taken into account. Below are some of the considerations that I look at in deciding who gets the nod (in no particular order).

  • Aesthetics
  • Feel/Sound
  • Performance
  • Innovation
  • Value (Price Point/Consumer “Bang For Buck”)

In some cases there are companies who will not or get consideration. Think of it as a DNQ. An example of this would be in the “Top Driver” category. Unfortunately, I was unable to swing the PING G410 (Plus or SFT) driver. I simply ran out of time. The same goes for Miura golf who was so busy that I never had the opportunity to swing their products. For the irons categories… there is no separation between GI or Player’s clubs.

The nominees are the Top 5 products in each category that we found at the 2019 PGA Merchandise Show. Let me just say that the strength of the 2019 product cycle is the strongest that I’ve seen out of the 7 shows that I have been to.
