Question for any pro shop pros

10 posts in this topic

What is the mark up for Vokey wedges? Does the pro shop make any cash on these or is it just minimal return. I tried talking to two of the pros in this area about ordering clubs and neither returned with any info on the pricing. Although it is not uncommon for that to occur around here, it still seems like they would want to make some money.

There is a mark up average is 35% give or take. Even on ping we get our pro price. Then blue orange price scale and mark down scale. Ping is by far hardest to discount. Feel free to email or pm me if I can help.

AZbowler...

i doubt they are protesting them lol.... I think they do this at the end of every season...   but yea i snagged a 56-11....

bad part was it was no joke two days after i bought two Vokeys at a Golf Galaxy... and they were not 79$ lol.....   basically the story is. i happened to stop in to GG just to get a brush for my irons, and I asked one of the guys why they dont make a low bounce 56 wedge...  and he's like yea, idk they are kind of rare, since most of them are 11bounce to 14 bounce....  and then he pauses and says oh yea we have 1 right here... its the last one we have...  a 56-8 Vokey.....

And then I see a 60-4 vokey, and pick them both up and turn a 6$ buy into a 270$ buy.... and i was seriously about 2 seconds from just heading to the counter and leaving, since it was about 5mins from closing time too.....   if i would of waited, i could of picked up all three wedges for less than what the two wedges cost.....

For $79, I'll take 10 of them.  Don't care what loft or anything as long as they're new.

    • What'd You Shoot Today?
      76 today 36 on the front 40 on the back I started off hitting the ball better than I ever had. I didn't miss a fairway until somewhere on the back 9 and the only thing that kept me from going low was not being able to convert on key birdie opportunities. Had a real good look at shooting under par but I let my swing get a little quick on the final holes as I played the closing three at +4. Despite a couple errant tee shots and a 4 -putt (yes, a 4-putt...), this was a pretty clean round for me. I feel good going into a 4 day break.  
    • The Tiger Woods/PED Thread
      Tiger never got "so big." Have you seen the dude in person? He was not an imposing figure. This is a myth. I get that he can look pretty stacked on TV, but he's not: his shirts were tight, and he was fit, but he wasn't "so big." Like most men, he filled out from the time he was 20 until he was 26, 27…
    • The Tiger Woods/PED Thread
      Wrong again! I loved Tiger when he was out there dominating the game. He was great for golf, bringing new fans and attention to the sport. I attended the WGC Bridgestone in Akron when Tiger was in his ascendancy. I tried to follow him, but it was impossible! He had to be dragging 10,000 people around the course! But I, like many others, began to wonder when Tiger got so big. Remember when he first came on tour? A skinny string bean with big, thick glasses. When he showed up at Stanford it was his teammate, Notah Begay, who tagged him with the nickname "Urkel"! Even though Woods and Begay became friends, I don't think Tiger liked "Urkel" very much. And it's been reported that Tiger didn't like the idea of golfers not being considered "real" athletes either. So, if Tiger was juicing he never got caught. Neither did Bonds, Sosa or McGwire. There is no proof, but suspicions remain. It's kind of sad to see Tiger in his current state, trying to claw his way back to the tour. No doubt he has enough money to last the rest of his and his kid's lives, but you don't get to where he was unless you are competitive. I think that might be what Tiger misses the most. I just remembered that he named his yacht "Privacy" because, at the time, that is what he craved. Well, he has plenty of it now. Wonder how that's sitting with him?

      The story about the infamous crime lord Whitey Bulger. It starred Johnny Depp as Whitey Bulger. Benedict Cumberbatch played his brother, and US Senator Billy Bulger. This was an enthralling movie to watch. I give it a tap in Birdie. I give Johnny Depp an birdie performance. He was totally convincing playing Whitey Bulger.  Kung Fury
      This is a little gem I found when I was hanging out with my friends just skimming through Netflix. This is a movie that was crowd funded through kickstarter. It has that cheesy 80's action movie coupled with cheesy kung-fu movie feel to it. It just works brilliantly to give you an over the top 30 minutes of enjoyment. I give it an birdie for outstanding exaggerated fun and enjoyment.

      Watching Steph make clutch 3s from mid court routinely must be like watching Spieth putt those 15-20 footers knowly there always a chance goes in no matter how tough the green is
