The Chicago Golf Show that runs through tomorrow, is full of things to see.
There are destination properties that have booths alongside the local courses. There are the club makers letting you hit the products. The Illinois PGA section has free lessons and other exhibits for the junior golfers to have fun at.
But one of things that everyone looks for at these types of indoor golf shows, are new products.
This year Golfers on Golf found two new products that not only caught our eye, they were catching the eyes of show goers. A large group of show patrons were enjoying cups full of the product while learning more.
One of the new products at the show was a new golf sports and energy drink called GolferAid.
GolferAid is a drink that helps golfers retain energy during their round of golf, or practice workout on the driving range.
According to the GolferAid reps at the show, the new drink contains healthy ingredients such as Glucosamine, Full B Complex, Magnesium, Turmeric, Bilberry, and other ingredients that include no artificial colors, flavors or sweeteners. The drink for now comes in only one flavor, that tastes a little like Ginger Ale, and one can is only 45 calories. For more details visit GolferAid.com
The latest addition in the golf ball world is the Bixtar Golf Ball, that comes from Bixtar Golf located in Elk Grove Village.
Company owner Steven Chong was thrilled to announce at the show that the ball has received a recent USGA approval, so the ball when it fully hits the market will be street or fairway legal.
Multiple national publications are starting to pick up the story of this ball that will sell for $19.99. Chong is presenting testing data, that show his ball that sells for $27 dollars a dozen less than a dozen of the Pro-V1 Titleist.
Golfers on Golf has yet to test the ball, but will do so as soon as possible, and file a story on our test. For more information see Bixtar.com.
