This is surprisingly a big week in golf, the PGA Merchandise Show is happening in Orlando, Fl. This is the annual event where all merchandisers from across the world come to the Orange County Convention Center to get their shops ordered for the year. It can be one of the most fun events of the year but its also full of golf hardos who take life and the sport way too seriously.....also a lot of blazers and 1/4 zips. Don't want to upset Old Man Golf.....If you would like to follow along what's going on this week go check out PGAShowNews.com.
This is also the event every year where we would all go to Dave and Busters as a group combine all of our tickets and buy the BIGGEST prize possible.
Now time for a preview of this week on Tour.....
PGA Tour - Farmers Insurance Open
Torrey Pines (San Diego, CA) is stunning and if you get the chance to watch golf this week...tune into the coverage.

A group of the best golfers look to start their seasons this week with Rory McIlroy and Jordan Spieth...one is a top player in the world and the other is trying to regain his form in being a top player in the world.
