"You lose a lot more in golf than you win. So when you do win, you have to enjoy it. I'm going to go back home and enjoy it with my friends and enjoy it with my family and, yeah, I love being from Northern Ireland. I tell everyone how great it is. For me, it's the best place on earth. I'm obviously biased, but I love it back there and I love the people."

It doesn’t appear to be the best of times for the golf industry these days. But one person remains bullish on it retail prospects, believe it or not. Dick Sullivan, CEO of PGA TOUR Superstores is putting his money where his mouth is too as the company continues to expand, somewhat aggressively despite the ever present challenges on display. “We see upside because we have a different model, we think we have a different mouse trap,” said Sullivan from his second store to open in Scottsdale, AZ. “At the end of the day the customer votes.” 

Don’t believe for a moment that Sullivan has over indulged in the company kool-aid. “We know the industry has been under siege in terms of golf rounds, etc., but this demographic will continue to play golf. Its not going away. This demographic will continue to try and improve their game and continue to buy new product. Our business is based on hope and people hopefully wanting to improve their game. We’re bullish,” he continued. “We have another store opening in Orlando next month as well as Texas. We have three or four leases for next year. We have 20 stores now and are growing at 25% and we should have 40 stores in three years and then on to 50,” he revealed.

The PGA of America Board of Directors voted Friday to remove Ted Bishop, the 38th PGA President, from office for insensitive gender-based statements posted yesterday on social media. The Board deemed the remarks to be inconsistent with the policies of the PGA. 

“The PGA of America understands the enormous responsibility it has to lead this great game and to enrich lives in our society through golf,” said PGA Chief Executive Officer Pete Bevacqua. “We must demand of ourselves that we make golf both welcoming and inclusive to all who want to experience it, and everyone at the PGA of America must lead by example.”

Under the Bylaws of the PGA Constitution, Vice President Derek Sprague has been appointed the Association’s Interim President until Nov. 22, when the election of new national officers takes place at the 98th PGA Annual Meeting. PGA Secretary Paul Levy will assume the dual responsibilities of Vice President and Secretary until the election.

“The Members and Apprentices of the PGA of America must uphold the highest standards and values of the profession, as well as the manner in which we conduct ourselves at all times,” said Sprague, the PGA General Manager and Director of Golf at Malone (New York) Golf Club. “We apologize to any individual or group that felt diminished, in any way, by this unacceptable incident.”
