I did receive the orders I placed from Edwin Watts so they appear to still be honoring their customers orders which is a good sign they will try to restructure their debt and attempt to keep the business going.

There is an Edwin Watts Golf near my house. I guess I won't be shopping there anymore.

Did they say that your store is closing? If not, why would you not be shopping there?

I really would not expect anyone to not get their orders - there will be some store closings, but they will take any business they can get.

Their new catalog showed up yesterday - havent had a chance to look at it yet, but based on what I saw online, there are no deals that are any different from what anyone else is offering.

I think they declared Chapter 11(reorganization), not Chapter 7 (liquidation) … and apparently they received interim financing from a third party to make it through the bankruptcy … so I'd say they are setting themselves up for a sale … maybe back to Edwin.

So they are in a continuing business situation.

Just saw that the EW in Naples is closing, 20-40% off but my stupid driver is an anti - golfite so I won't be checking it out

EW is going through Chap. 11 Bankruptcy - restructuring. Don't be surprised to see EW close some of its lower-performing stories as it tries to stabilize financially.

This happened in the St. Louis area in 2010. Regional chain Golf Discount Superstores went into receivership, and some stores were closed in the process of finding a new owner.

The Chap.11 reorganization seeks financial stability, so EW likely will close lower-performing stores.

This happened in St. Louis area in 2010. Regional chain Golf Discount went into financial receivership, and ended up closing stores as a new owner was found.

EW is just overpriced and I'm not surprised by this at all. The only thing I have purchased from them in 13ish years of living near their stores was a used set of irons. I do go in there if I want to see something up close, then use my phone to google prices for that item. I never find them to be even remotely close to the best deal so I don't end up buying stuff from them. For such a large golf chain, they sure as heck don't try to get your business through pricing.

Also, I would LIKE to give them my business as they are a local company for me (we are both in the Panhandle) but I can't justify paying their prices. If they were even in the ballpark, I'd buy stuff from them.

I went into the one that is closing in Tampa today (felt kind of guilty because obviously the employees are losing their jobs)

The sign outside said 20-40% off. Of course the golf balls were only 15% off - slim pickings in the store, but I guess their shoppers do not like Srixon balls - there were a ton of q-star and z-stars.

I picked up a dozen yellow q-stars, some black widow spikes (that I saved 32.5% on) and a dozen cheap nikes for my father in law.

Even at 20% off on the clubs, nothing stuck out for me.

    • It is insane this is still being talked about. I read that people are saying he was the winner. Crazy!
    • Day 109.  Round of 16 of my club's match play.  I lost 3&2 but made a new friend.  There's this issue that happens to me at this course we played (not our home course due to availability of tee times).  It's come up a few times, but ... my second shot on the first three holes, plus my tee shot on the par-3 4th, were horrible.  Seems to happen to me I hit a few bad early shots, despite getting to the course, stretching, and warming up.  Despite this, still had sub-10 handicap baseline strokes gained: approach.  And for the first time, sub-10 handicap baseline SG:driving.  I also did some "miss the green" short game shots from what should be easy positions today... did that four times, totally inexcusable. I sank some long putts even but missed some short ones.  Putting was sub-20 handicap level today, which was cool.  Gotta pull it all together at some point again. 
    • Day 3 June 12 - Went to the driving range to get used to a new wedge. I had a wedge fitting yesterday and needed to find out if I could hit touch shots with it in addition to the full shots. 25 shots with it. Done. Then went on to work on getting through the shot with my irons. I need to get my weight forward and stay on plane through the shot better. Why is it so easy to stay on plane with my 5W? I can return that on the original shaft plane and smoke shot after shot. But why is it so much more difficult with my irons? I need to take a video and look at this. I need to look at what I'm doing with my 5W and move that over to my irons.
    • I’ll keep it simple and short... my draw bias ZX hybrids I can’t hit, they just go left.  I’m thinking about buying the ZX5 4-iron and trying to figure out 14th club.... At Genny I rarely have to hit either hybrid.... but longer courses I’d be between 3-wood and 5-iron. (The 4-iron is a 6-8 week wait).    I usually don’t mind a hybrid (don’t mind hitting the ball high)... I’m looking basically at a few options... It’s not exactly easy to bend the lie of a hybrid but thought about flatten the lie to reduce the hook a bit. Get a Pro model hybrid. Or get a 5 or 7 wood...  Thoughts?    Yes I’m down to a 1.5 handicap, and shouldn’t really need equipment help... but I’m an adult and don’t know everything.
    • Similar to last  year I am looking to break 90 and then eventually 85 this year. My previous round was a 92 and I am improving.
