I long ago stopped debating the law with non-lawyers, so I probably should not post this but your statement about the Digital Millennium Copyright Act having any applicability to either basic trademark or copyright counterfeiting is nonsense.   But, absolutely none of the factories in China that make brand name goods are making knock-offs, for purposes of this discussion meaning counterfeit clubs. That used to happen in China before the American companies woke up...
If price seems too good to be true it is. Everyone likes a deal but tough to get a steal on new clubs. Lots of fakes. Attended counterfeiting conference last year and talked with security people from Ping, TM and Acushnet. The volume of fakes is out of control sadly. Not just golf clubs btw.
Agree completely. They have officials with every group. They must need to have them make calls and enforce them at the time. To say golf is different from other sports is baloney and a red herring - other than some of the rules are so archaic as to be nonsensical. The point is that when the rules were adopted they had no referees so they had to have some type of rule system, and most people playing in a social round of golf do not have referees. You don't have referees...
Thanks much. He was rolling it pretty well last Saturday for sure.
What putter is Rory McIlroy using in San Antonio? I can't tell if he is now using the Nike or still with the Scotty Cameron. Thanks.
The prettiest golf course I ever played was a 9 hole created by a farmer just north of Galway called Clew Bay. Remarkable holes up high on a hill overlooking beautiful Clew Bay. Last time we played it was 2007. Went back there in October 2012 and finally found it. The lack of play had caused the guy who owned it to let it grow over and have his sheep on it. Heartbreaking. A lot of that has happened to the really small courses that you would probably like to play for...
Lucky you. Galway is my favorite place in the world. Love it, the people the entire experience. You can rent clubs at the expensive courses. It is expensive to rent, like $75 Euro. Decent clubs though. At the smaller local places likely not going to find rental clubs. I am talking now about the places where there is no real clubhouse just a trailer and a lockbox asking you to deposit 5 or 10 Euro for the fee and another 2 for the trolley. On the west side of Ireland is...
That mural was still firmly in place as of last October when I was in Belfast. Creepy thing was somehow the gun followed you as you walked towards or away from the mural.
It's classic Dick Wilson. I love his courses, and this is a gem. I am sad to see it get bulldozed. I enjoyed it beating me up several times. i realize that tour pros were killing it, but it is tough plus for an amateur. And fair and fun.
Heatherwoode is a nice public course....but. Because of that water I have never played it in less than 6 hours. In my opinion, that is absurd so I won't play it anymore. A big reason golf participation is down. Way too long and waiting between shots for 10 minutes causes me to lose whatever focus or rhythm I have on the golf. Muirfield Village is a nice course, very nice and quite difficult for an average player, at least for me. Scioto and The Golf Club are both equally...
