(Reporting from Orlando FL.)
Demo started off with a bang, and it was Chicago based Wilson Golf that came off the first tee quickly.
Making announcements of the new judges for Driver vs Driver 2 to shown this fall after the Ryder Cup on The Golf Channel.
While Tim Clarke the GM of Wilson Golf is back as a judge for the second run of DVD 2, former USGA spec guy Frank Thomas and former Chicago Bear LB Brian Urlacher are out. They have been replaced by former Chicago Blackhawk Jeremy Roenick and UK blogger Rick Shiels. Melanie Collins returns in her role as MC and host.
The show which is more than halfway taped, had more filming done today at demo day, the first day of the PGA show in Orlando. Numerous golfers got to try various prototypes and give their input in front of the camera’s, some folks might end up on TV during the show.

Clarke adds that some of the contestants who did not win the first time around, entered again, and one of them with a revised team who made the final six or so last time, is back in the running again. While it’s not known how many episodes their will be before a winner is named, Wilson is hoping to launch the club in November, so golfers can by it this time on Black Friday, in time for the holiday rush.
That is if the USGA does not get in the way with a non-conforming issue, like in 2016 when the Triton won.
I asked Roenick in front of Clarke if he will put the winning entry in his bag when the show is over, and he says he will. Roenick says he played a lot of his golf with the Triton in his bag over the last year. For more details visit Wilsongolf.com.
