What do the Green Bay Packers have in common with the 2017 PGA Merchandise Show?

Sure we get to see Aaron Rodgers every year playing celebrity golf in the Lake Tahoe summer, but it turns out that an aerification machine is the link between one of the most successful NFL franchises and the world's largest golf expo.

It turns out that a machine the Packers use in Lambeau Field was one of the stars of PGA Merchandise Show Demo Day.

Air2G2 demonstrated its state-of-the-art aerification machine on Tuesday, Jan. 24 at Demo Day, the largest outdoor demo in the golf world, to begin the 2017 PGA Merchandise Show. The demonstration took place at the Orange County National Golf Center in Orlando, with access to the area granted from 9 a.m.-5 p.m., that day. PGA Show Demo Day provides attendees with the opportunity to preview and test the newest innovations by leading golf brands in the industry. Air2G2 will be positioned at Upper Tee No. 2 at Demo Village on Orange County National’s circular practice facility alongside other golf equipment companies showcasing their newest clubs, golf balls, grips, scoring clinics, club-fitting best practices, instructional aids and more. The Air2G2 aerification machine, manufactured by GT AirInject, Inc., of Jacksonville, FL, revolutionizes how turf managers on golf courses, sports fields and at landscape companies think about aerification practices. The Air2G2 injects air into the soil profile and is the only machine on the market today that utilizes air injection technology, allowing for healthier turf and immediate access instead of a delay for recovery with the usual plugging process. Air2G2 is distributed internationally and is used at more than 80 world-class golf facilities such as Medinah, Muirfield Village, Oakland Hills, Ridgewood and Royal Dornoch and at top sports facilities for the U.S. Military Academy, Chicago Cubs, Manchester United Football Club, Boston Red Sox and Green Bay Packers.

“We’re excited to participate in Demo Day for the PGA Merchandise Show and give a full-fledged demonstration to the hundreds of PGA Professionals and attendees who will be on site,” said Glen Black, the Owner and President of Air2G2. “We’re really proud of our innovative approach to agronomy and truly believe our product has changed the landscape of the business. One of our priorities is to bring our product to the forefront of every PGA Professional, golf course superintendent, agronomist and golf course owner’s mind and Demo Day is a fantastic opportunity for us to achieve that goal.”

Following Demo Day later next week, Air2G2 will participate as a featured exhibitor at the Sports Turf Managers Association (STMA) Conference, to be held at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort and Conference Center in nearby Lake Buena Vista, FL.
