Pricing Wars – Callaway vs. TaylorMade: Who Blinks First?

Over the last several seasons, early discounting has become the norm for industry giants Callaway and TaylorMade. Now that the bulk of the new product has been announced (and most is already on shelves), some of you have, no doubt, begun counting the days until you can get a R15 for $249 or a Big Bertha Alpha Double Black Diamond for $369.

This could be the year it doesn’t happen. Sorry.

The PGA Show: Then vs. Now

Last week I made my annual trek to Orlando to attend the PGA Show. Many golfers would consider the event the Mecca of golf retail.

I have attended every PGA Show over the last 20 years, some good and some bad. I have experienced it from both sides, as a buyer and as an exhibitor. As you might guess, the show has changed significantly since the mid 1990s when I began attending.
