FORT WAYNE, Ind. (www.incnow.tv) – People got a little taste of spring this weekend at the Northern Indiana golf show.

Representatives from top golf manufacturers filled the memorial coliseum to show off their new products for the 2013 golf season.

Golfers could compete in different competitions, like longest putt and longest drive. There was even an indoor driving range for golfers to test out new equipment.

Director George Hays says the show is so convenient for golfers because everything they need is under one roof.

“They can come in here and whatever their skill level is, they're going to find what they need to get into the 2013 golf show, whether its just a sleeve of balls, or a couple dozen balls, some gloves or a new set, or some tips on how to improve whatever part of their game is lacking, they're going to find some help here at the golf show,” he said.

Golfers were also able to get free lessons from PGA professionals who were at the show giving presentations.
