NORWALK, Conn. – TaylorMade Golf Company today announced its return to the 60th PGA Merchandise Show at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida, January 24-26, 2013.

“The PGA Show continues to be a place and a moment in time for our company to excite the golf industry and set the tone for the year,” said company President and CEO Mark King. “Two years ago we launched “white” metalwoods, last year we introduced a product called “RocketBallz” and this year we are excited to unveil even more breakthrough products from all of our brands.”

With the purchase of Adams Golf and its record selling year with the launch of the “RocketBallz” franchise, TaylorMade Golf Company is coming off a historic year. The company maintained its marketshare lead as the No. 1 iron and metalwood. It also saw significant growth in the footwear and apparel space thanks to hot product introductions from adidas Golf and Ashworth.
