New golf courses in Scotland, Club Glove's Aficionado III Stand Bag, benefits from retail buyouts, Wolfrum on fighting in golf

Golf in Scotland has always been about tradition, but expectations are high for three new courses being built there. This week, podcast host Dave Berner talks to golf writer Brandon Tucker, who recently returned from a golf trip to Scotland, about local reaction to the new tracks, one of which is being built by Donald Trump.
“Anywhere Trump goes he’s obviously going to have a little bit of controversy around,” Tucker says. “But a lot of people in the area are actually looking forward to it. They think it’s going to bring in a lot of jobs and money. Everyone I talk to in the golf industry in the Aberdeen area is really looking forward to it.”
“The very cool thing about this bag is that there are about five pockets that can be detached from the bag,” Kiel says. “So you can take some off, leave some on, or take them all off. If you’re a minimalist, you just put two balls in your pocket and a tee, and then you’ve got the lightest possible set up there is.”
As more golf retailers get gobbled up by large sporting good chains, the consumer will see the benefit in his wallet, according to golf podcaster Bruce Stasch.
“I actually think that for the typical golf product purchaser, there’s going to be more pricing pressure on manufacturers to get their prices lower,” Stasch says. “Because if you can find the product at Dick’s at 399 bucks and you can find it at Sports Authority for $349, Callaway, Ping and the like are probably going to be forced to reduce their prices, or at least be highly competitive.”
Plus, inspired by the recent throw down brawl between the New York Knicks and the Denver Nuggets, Bill Wolfrum pontificates on why more fist fights don’t go down on the golf course, in this week’s segment of TravelGolf.com On Course.
