There is a major golf shop/driving range just around the corner from my house, and I make it a point to attend as many equipment demo days there as I possibly can.
Yesterday, the shop was advertising a Titleist/Cobra Golf demo day from 1 to 7 pm, so I made plans to stop by after picking up the boy at Cub Scout Camp.
But when I arrived at around 4:30, they were already packing up camp.
“Not enough traffic to make it worthwhile,” they said.
Huh? I pointed out that at 4:30, most honest people are still at work. And that most evenings, the driving range has a line waiting to use the facilities. Its a Golf Business Magazine Top 100 pro shop.
They were not at all convinced, and continued to pack up.
I left disappointed.
And then I began to wonder. Are things so good at Titleist/Cobra that their representatives can afford to quit early? I know that they supposedly have an in with PGA professionals who stock their stuff at pro shops. But my club’s pro shop has mostly stuff from TaylorMade and Callaway, so it can’t be universal.
So no Titleist / Cobra Golf first impressions from me. Maybe someone at Titleist will read this and give their Michigan representatives a scolding.
