ANY IDEA WHO SAID THIS? “What I have to say for kids, growing up or people that are aspiring to be professionals, is that you have to work as hard as you possibly can. You've got to realize that the earth is massive and there are people that are on the other side of the earth while you're sleeping working on their game. So at every moment, you need to be sleeping, breathing, drinking, thinking about the game of golf and if they can keep their minds on it and focus on getting better every single day in some small facet, then they are on the right step to becoming a professional because for me I pretty much gave up everything as a kid to be as good as I possibly could be. I didn't go to social outings or anything. It was just me wanting to be the best.”

ROUND AND ROUND WE GO: Turns out the rounds played in the United States for 2018 came in -4.8% behind 2017, according to Golf Datatech. If you’re wondering about 2017, it was down 2.7% from 2016, which was up 0.6%. You get the idea. However, it does offer some additional context into the performance of both Callaway and Acushnet in terms of the respective financial performances. Consider each company has managed to grow despite less recreational golf played domestically.

Anyone wondering the breakdown of public versus private play last year, it was -4.8% and -5.4% respectively, Datatech reported.

WEB GEMS:

GOOD DEAL GONE BAD: A son of three-time Masters Tournament winner Gary Player was arrested in Columbia County last week on a fraud charge.
