ANY IDEA WHO SAID THIS? “I'm not a better putter than two years ago. I'd like to say I was. From inside, probably from inside 10 feet I'm maybe a little bit better. But from 15 to 30 feet, I just holed everything. It's quite nice to be able to get on and know. To be honest, every time I got on the green, it didn't matter if it was 60 feet, 70 feet or three feet, I just knew I was going to hole the putt. I just knew it. And everything fell in, which was nice. Slowly getting back to that point.”

THINGS ARE LOOKING UP! Golf Datatech’s latest US Retail sell thru for the month of May indicates continued strong sales gains in most equipment product categories for the fifth consecutive month. Iron sales are also up sharply, with Average Selling Prices soaring and at all time highs, while increases in driver pricing are moderating after several months of rapid growth.  It wasn’t that long ago (October of 2014) that ASP’s on drivers were in the $220 range, while today the average is nearly $360.  The only club category continuing to struggle remains putters, which continue to see shrinking unit sales while ASP’s creep higher.

BUILDING DISTRIBUTION: TPT Golf has named Big Fish Golf Academy the exclusive distributor of its golf shafts in South Korea. Under the agreement, the two companies will attempt to expand distribution to as many as 25 elite club-fitting locations around South Korea before the end of 2018.

"For several months now, we've been receiving messages from golfers around the world asking when TPT Golf shafts will be available in their area or country, and the demand in South Korea was exceptionally high," said TPT Golf Director Sebastian Sebayang. "In response, we flew to South Korea to meet with many different companies to ensure we were choosing a partner that understood our new technologies and our mission. We feel that Big Fish Golf is the right fit, and we're excited about working with them to help South Korean golfers take their games to the next level."

TPT Golf shafts are sold exclusively through its small network of Authorized Fitters of approximately more than 100 fitters located across the world. "With our new technology, getting the proper fit is absolutely essential to ensuring the new level of performance our shafts deliver," Sebayang says. "We want golfers around the world to know that when they visit a fitter who is carrying TPT Golf shafts, they can be certain they are working with one of the most advanced, skillful club fitters in the world."

WEB GEMS:

HAVE WE HEARD THE LAST OF IT? “It took me a few days to kind of let my anger and frustration of the whole thing subside to where I could see clearer that it wasn’t the greatest moment,” Mickelson told media gathered near the 50-yard line at event’s end. “And since I apologized, the best thing I can do now is help promote the game in a positive way, which is why I’m here today.” READ MORE>>>
