I agree! I bet without Tigers present in the sport they would have a Larger decline statistic and someone else to blame. Its unfortunate he makes comments like this - I am a taylormade product fan.
I would also have to agree that Tiger using Taylormade products would most likely INCREASE the sales of Taylormade.
The true decline......most likely was in Taylormade sales - while Nike has most likely increased.
I do not have these statistics but I bet I am not too far off on that assumption.
