Customization in the Golf Industry
Mood:  suave
Topic: golf

Over the past 5 years, the United States Golf Association (USGA), has imposed tough restrictions on golf club design, limiting the size, spring effect and now grooves in an attempt to rein in what they perceive as game altering technology. The argument for or against their position can be saved for another day, but the result of these limits has been making waves in the golf industry. If you ask the CEOs of the top 5 golf companies, "Has the USGA's restrictions on golf club design helped or hurt your business?" invariably, the answer would be "hurt". But to others the new regulations do not hurt, in fact, they help.

In the first 1/2 of this decade, Golf manufacturers worked hard to keep up with the advances in golf technology. It seemed that every year there was a new manufacturing barrier to be crossed, a new material that had to be integrated and the performance bar was ever being drawn farther and farther down the fairway. Now that the pace of technology in the golf industry has slowed somewhat, it is easier to manufacture equipment that performs as well or better than clubs purchased in the most prestigious pro shops.

Still 98% of the golf equipment purchased in the US is off the rack or standard. So if technology is not advancing the way it once did, what is the next performance break through? Certainly, it is customization. In a 2008 article on playing your best golf a major golf publication reported, "....customization may be the last and least know frontier in the golf equipment industry. Manufacturers that will be successful in the coming decades will embrace a customer-centric approach to fitting the golfer for improved play."

Firstly, you have a great Blog and deservedly it seems to be going very well indeed.

We have just created a new website called www.mulliganplus.com and needless to say we are currently looking for high quality links from sites such as yours.

Our site would be of interest to anyone of your visitors looking on Courses in the UK and especially Scotland where we are adding information continually at present. As you will see, our course directory holds enormous amount of information regarding clubs and courses. If you look at Kingsbarns for example, we have all the information any visitor needs and its all be packaged into a PDF Course Guide that people can download to read, print or share with friends.

We also have a member’s area mainly for UK golfers with handicap calculator, online leagues, scorecard recorder, and a playing finder facility. Over this week we are also updating our members section and it’s presently free to join. We are developing the social networking opportunities of the site, with small individual blog sections for members etc that will be available to be viewed by the public.

Recently we also covered the Dunhill International Links Championship and we thought that some sites may be interested in using some images that we produced. We have full copyright for the images but they must be used in an editorial way and not to advertise a product. Therefore, please visit here and follow the link to view our photography of the event. If you wish to use an image, we ask that a link is added to us within the image and as a caption to the photograph.

Now, I hope that something is of interest to you and more importantly to your readers.

If you have any questions, please get in touch.

Kind regards

Reagan Pannell

Invitation
Mood:  happy
Topic: golf
Hi!,
Thanks for inviting me to this blog. I don't know why i was invited, but i am happy to join in. I live in Spain and am interested in Golf, family History research and Gardening. I recently helped to start a Gardening Club in order to help the ex-pats in this area to develop attractive gardens. I do all the research on the Internet for them. If anyone shares any of my interests I would welcome them to contact me.
Thanks.
Ed
