Best and worst of PGA Merchandise Show
Worst customer service: Chiliwear. I saw a shirt there that I liked and asked the Chiliwear rep if he had one in a medium.
“Probably,” he growled. “But, I’m not going to waste my afternoon looking for it.”
Oh. I see. Thanks for your help.”

I think you walked by our booth. we had someone next to us trying to sell massage insoles. Please visit our website and see the newest cap on the market. Our head wear was really popular with the show. We had the lighted Christmas Palm tree display. Thanks Mark Risso Rissotta Inc.
B) Did CB Maxwell get his blogging job here for his spelling abilities?
C) Mark Riso needs to bone up on his punctuation.
As for you Nicholas, you pretty much sum up everything that's wrong with the golf industry you purport to be a part of.
I'll leave you to figure out the reasons why because I know you never will.
Think innovation. And why you'll never be a part of it.
As a PGA Professional who has been in golf for 24 years, I am personally responsable for over 1.2 million in golf club sales anually, that's right through Discountdansgolf.com.
Discount Dan has been a PGA Pro since the 50's, when MacGregor practically owned the entire golf equipment industry. After 40 plus years of mail order golf equipment sales, thru him I may have an industry trends resource unrivaled by all others.
I aplaud MacGregor's efforts to get into the golf industry, and I can say that no-one would benefit more than I, to have another golf club that actually works to sell to the country. I have just been here long enough to see many such companies ground into the dirt an bought up and put out to pasture by the corporate machine that resorts to SuperBowl Sunday add campaigns to launch new products.
I will be the first to add to MacGregor's success story should they get it off the ground, as it would be a welcome change from the fluffy marketing driven technology that we see on a daily basis.
My opinion, in case you don't recognize one when you see it, is fueled by what I see in my market, which includes all 50 states, and a few foreign countries to date. In my world for every 2000 Name Brand Titanium drivers that are sold, four people ask about a MacGregor.
When that changes Tim, I will count MacGregor as a survivor among many who have tried and failed.
Look to thine own self, and to thine own self be true.
you should. You and the Chiliwear rep sound
like you would get along swimmingly.
