The marketing hype by equipment companies and golf bloggers was in overdrive last week in Orlando, FL at the annual PGA Merchandise Show! Said to be the Super Bowl of the golf industry, we would argue its more like the NFL Draft, as you really won't know what you've got until you put it in play for an extended period of time.  We read through as much online coverage as possible over the weekend to come up with our Top 10 Coolest Looking Products.

A few years ago we saw a metal putter rack in a pro-shop gently caressing a long line of gorgeous putters. We loved the modern look of the rack, but it in speaking with the shop owner the display was a bit flimsy and was no longer being manufactured. We filed the design in the memory banks hoping that we could build a wooden version of the rack for our golf cave at some point in the future.  Fast forward a few years and we had the good fortune to meet Daniel Sharp a talented woodworker located in Eatonton, Georgia....
