Golf Show on tap for this weekend


The Minnesota Golf Show returns to the Minneapolis Convention Center this weekend, providing a winter respite for players waiting for spring to arrive.

This year’s event, which runs Friday through Sunday, features many popular favorites, including the huge indoor driving range and numerous golf clinics.

Two of this year’s presenters on the DirecTV Demonstration Stage are familiar to local players as Stillwater Country Club teaching professional Lucas Roland will provide a clinic on “Evaluating Your Golf Body”, set for Friday at 3:30 p.m., and again on Sunday at 11:30 a.m. Former Sawmill/Loggers Trail golf professional Greg Schulze will discuss “Does Your Swing Use Good Math?“ in sessions scheduled for Friday at 2:30 p.m., and Saturday at 11:30 a.m.

A host of other PGA golf professionals will be providing clinics, including Angie Ause, Chris Foley, Brad Pluth and Jimmy Rockelman.

AM 1500 ESPN will be broadcasting live from the golf show all weekend and the schedule of events also includes the First Tee Junior Golf Clinic on Saturday from 9-11 a.m., and a golf fashion show on Saturday at 2 p.m. and Sunday at noon.

Tickets are available at the door for $12, although “Happy Hour” admission is just $6 on Friday after 4 p.m. Hours for the show are 10 a.m.-7 p.m., on Friday, 9 a.m.-7 p.m. on Saturday and 10 a.m.-4 p.m. on Sunday.
