 Open Your Wallets Wider, Golf Gear is Too Damn Cheap

As I’ve heard it from hundreds of you; one of the prime suspects in the crime that is the decline of golf is the cost of the gear itself. Golf equipment has gotten too damn expensive. These golf companies have a lot of nerve thinking they can charge $400 for a driver.

The prevailing perception is that the manufacturers are gouging the consumer. They’ve steadily raised prices and haven’t given you a damn thing more for your money.

Golf equipment is overpriced, right? They’re screwing us.

Probably not. [READ MORE]

As is usually the case when bad things happen, there is plenty of finger pointing right now. The fingers that aren’t being pointed at Dick’s are trained squarely on TaylorMade, and to a lesser extent, Callaway. Those who are being kind simply blame the equipment companies.

We have reached a tipping point.

Years of accelerated product cycles and equally accelerated consumer discounts have finally caught up with golf’s biggest retailer (Dick’s + the Dick’s-owned Golf Galaxy), and just as quickly it’s catching up with the industry’s two largest manufacturers…and everyone else too. [READ MORE]

The Shoe Philes – adidas gripmore

It may seem strange that in a year when adidas has arguably the best tour shoe they’ve ever created (pure 360), a casual styled shoe with an unusual sole design would take top billing. That’s exactly what’s happening with gripmore, and that should tell you exactly how excited the guys at adidas golf are about the gripmore’s new spikes. [READ MORE]
