Letter from the Editor

Welcome to eSouthernGOLFzine.com, the Southeast's #1 on line digital magazine for everything golf. For up to date news and reviews on courses, products and places to play, you only have to scroll our pages of information. Our staff of experienced writers are here to bring you, our readers, the latest articles for you to enjoy. Thank you for visiting.

The PGA Merchandise Show was in Orlando the week of January 19th. Two time Masters Champion Bubba Watson visited Demo Day and opened the Show on Wednesday to a massive audience. If the crowds and the new products are any indication of how Golf is doing, it should be a great year for our industry. You can read Arnie's op-ed on the 'state of the game'. In Florida with 1103 golf courses, the most of any state, Golf supports over 132,000 jobs and is responsible for $8.5 billion direct economic impact. That is 3 billion more than the theme parks. Support your local course and introduce someone new to the game of a lifetime in 2015.

Our staff will be featuring articles on the items we saw and demoed at the show. No, I did not find the answer to a perfect game, but we did view some really cool stuff. Technology seems to be driving new inventions in many aspects of golf. Alan will be featuring the new applications of some of the advancements.

Congratulations to Jimmie Walker who walked away with a win at the Sony Open after losing to Patrick Reed (Congrats P.R.) at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions the week before in a playoff. Miguel Angel Jiminez, "the Mechanic", won the Mitsubishi Electric in Hawaii, the 2015 opening event of the Champions Tour, while Bill Haas outlasted the field at the Humana Challenge in Palm Springs.

The LPGA opened their 2015 season at the Ron Garl designed tribute course at The Golden Ocala
Golf and Equestrian Club with a Saturday finish of 16 under by Na Yeon Choi, to a throng of golf starved audience from the Central Florida area. Thanks To Coates Golf and R&L Carriers for bringing championship golf to horse country in Marion County.

It is our commitment to keep our readers aware of all the latest golf news and products. Let us know what you think.
