To be sure, people will be interested in seeing major champion John Daly when he appears at noon and 4 p.m. Saturday at the three-day Long Island Golf Show (Suffolk County Community College, Brentwood, just off the L.I. Expressway's Exit 53). But Daly likes looking at the merchandise exhibits staffed by folks who aren’t big names.
“It’s cool to see what new products are out. I kind of like to see an underdog product make it big,” Daly said. “It’s cool to see a guy spend so many months or years on a product and then make it big.”
By the time the show is over Sunday, though, the biggest hit might be Michael Breed, a Westchester-based teaching pro who hosts “The Golf Fix,” a popular instruction program on Golf Channel. LI Golf Show organizer Tom Tarry said Breed appeared at a similar function upstate “and he tore the roof off the place.”
