Interesting. Would TM stand for Tigermade?

Or he might be buying it so he can have a club sponsor. 

Has anyone heard of this term called 'loan'? . Don't think you have to be worth ALL of it if you have brand name collateral. TW name would be worth a significant amount of the collateral.

Wow can you imagine,  in a few years we could all be hitting our 18 degree pitching wedges 500 yards.  Good old tiger made the clubs you can trust. 

Probably looking for another revenue stream in case his pro golf career doesn't pan out. ;-)

  • iacas changed the title to Tiger buying TaylorMade?

Taylormade? I don't think so. The company albeit on the decline and can certainly be picked up for a "bargain" (if it's able to be resurrected...) still has $xxx millions in revenue each year. I don't believe even Tiger has the funds for a venture like this.

How much is something like that worth?  I though Tiger was worth over a billion?

I had no idea Tiger was worth what he is. If I can believe google, he's around ~700 million net worth. I think you can flirt with buying many companies with that. However, net worth isn't the same as cash. So I really have no idea.

Has anyone heard of this term called 'loan'? :whistle:.

If TW bought TM, I would guess that sales would increase. That's just a guess though.

celebritynetworth.com has him at ~$720m - http://www.celebritynetworth.com/richest-athletes/richest-golfers/tiger-woods-net-worth/

even with that, he wouldn't spend his own money outright if he's a smart investor. He'd likely put together an acquisition group, and they would finance all or a portion of the purchase.

    • I guess when you KNOW you're missing the cut, might as well try something new.  But was putting really his problem?  Averaging 29 putts per 18 holes isn't awful in itself, but its possible he hadn't made anything over a couple feet.
    • Yeah I can imagine players who swing it fast can get a little squirrelly when they try a longer shaft. I’m considering trying a ‘softer’ flex to see if I can gain a little speed. 
    • Seems “anchored” to me.  Besides being hilariously dumb! LOL NO!  My buds would NEVER let me live that down!!! 
    • Hello I'm 38yo and even though I have always had an interest in golf I never picked up a golf club until the end of summer in 2019 and I got my green card just before the golf season ended in October. I practiced during the winter and played my first full round of 18 holes in April last year with 54 handicap. If there was one silver lining for me in 2020 it was that due to COVID-19 I was not allowed to work more than 60% of my working hours.  That meant I had a lot of free time that I could spend on practice or playing golf so I ended the year with a handicap of 17,2.  Lowest round was 87 on a par 72 course (it could easily have been 80-82 if I can improve my short game 😃). I'm loving the game even if it can be very frustrating some times .   
    • You should have had them fix it like this kid.   Best of luck in your comeback. These injuries do take a while to heal.
