Wow – now that’s perspective! I think we often react in agreement or disagreement because of our emotions, but hearing another side, passionately presented, really makes us think!

hile I found this page really intriguing, I could not help but to contemplate whether the figures you used are accurate. That statement looks fairly weird to me. Any thoughts whether it’s genuinely true?

In response to: Dynacraft Will No Longer Exist

Joe Lawler [Visitor]
Go to Hireko Golf.com and review their catalog. Dynacraft products are in that catalog as part of Hireko.

The trend to fewer companies making components will continue, but the Hireko/Dynacraft combination is working well.

Try them.

I can see where people may disagree with Ping's pricing policy... I myself have several family members fighting overseas... However, as an account holder at a small public golf course, the only reason we are able to compete with the bigger shops is because of that policy... The policy runs across the board, nobody get's a break... Besides, the accounts that were closed knew what they were doing, and what the consequences would be if they stepped out of line... All of the discounts were given without approval... I'm happy that Ping stuck to their guns...

Rip Hall [Visitor]
First of all, I'm a golf fan...Tiger, Phil, and yes,
John Daly despite his woes. What's intriguing is the media still writes about John despite no Top-10's
since 2006 and it's amazing above the writer
stated "Its only two rounds because Tiger will make the cut and Daly won’t." Well, just the opposite happened - I say 'play on' John, watch your drinking and what you
say in public because you are under a microscope. Some may say that misery loves company, but I say John has more baggage than some and he still is competing.

As a soldier and a veteran, I will never buy anything that says PING again. As far as that goes, I will make sure my friends and family, WHO DO SUPPORT OUR TROOPS, do the same. I am sure by us doing this it will not make a difference as far as PING is concerned, but it is their right to not support us. It is because of the men and women who died for that right. IRONIC isn't it.

As a supplier to golf retailers, I see how the big brands squeeze margins from the medium-small retailers. Moreover, the retailer has become a savvy merchandiser with an attractive product/brand mix in their store. Most brick and mortar retailers these days have a very lenient trial/return policy in place and I'm sure this has impact the online retailers.

In my business, I supply add-on items that improve a retailers average transaction value and generate incremental profits. I believe that retailers must focus on building the "value proposition" they offer to a customer. That might be top-line customer service, return policies or 1-stop shopping by merchandising add-on items.

The worldwide recession is certainly taking it's toll. But as Frank states above, golfers are indeed prone to the latest clubs or gadgets to help shave numbers from their handicap.

Things have changed! But some of us are still around and giving the bargains golfers are looking for. I wonder if greens fees are going down to keep us out there using the equipment.

We run a group of websites related to golf. The trend we have seen in terms of retail sales for clubs was from (expensive) major brands to second tier brands, including Pinemeadow you mentioned above. I believe that retailers with an established online retail set-up have a significant price advantage over in-store brands. Golfers who used to buy a new set of branded irons at the beginning of the golf season now seem to tend towards cheaper 2nd tier brands in order to save money. Golfers are a funny lot, even if money is tight they still crave for some new clubs, hoping it will improve their game. In this light I agree with you that these times will be tough for brands that pay a fortune in endorsement fees, but I believe this will actually improve business for those who are nimble and are able to present good quality at a reasonable price.

Interesting article.

No doubt the economy is playing a role in golfers buying trends. We can only hope these financial times will turn around soon.

Yeah it's interesting to see what few retailers and manufacturers are actually expanding.

You mentioned Hireko above, who are actually expanding their business as the moment as they can see opportunities in a market full of bargain hunters.

The other company looking to expand at the moment is Global Value Commerce who have Global Golf & Taylormade pre-owned.

I still think there are opportunities in the market for companies with a business model that fits the times and the above two examples definitely fit into that group.

In response to: Dick's Buys Golf Galaxy - Let the consolidation begin

AZGolfer [Visitor]
Dicks Sporting Goods has shut down the Golf Galaxy corporate office and consolidated to Dicks Pittsburgh Office. Eliminated hundreds of Jobs! (Way to go... Dicks!)

They are going to keep the Golf Galaxy name. Changing the slogan to: "America's Pro Shop", from "Everything for the Game".

They are restructuring Golf Galaxy stores. (i.e. they are making managers hourly instead of salary, enabling them to save money by ensuring that they don't get enough hours to pay benefits. Their plan is to bring in more "low paying" employees so the store looks "well staffed" but none of them will know what they are doing or what they are talking about. Basically like Dicks stores, run by teenagers.)

Highly disappointed in Dicks Sporting Goods and the former CEO of Golf Galaxy. They cashed in and let everyone and everything go to hell. Thanks Randy Zanatta!

How can you complain about the coverage Daly gets when you just covered him yourself? I think the press should have to be suspended on writing about Daly for the same six months, but then again what would you have to write about. For you, he is job security. Check yourself. Daly is a mess, but you keep writing about it.
