    The way the finance is structured there's a possibility they will go bust.

    I have a feeling the next "chatter" will be that Woods is behind the company.

    Cloud Cookie Land!

    Company has been around for years! Doing exactly this sort of deal! It bought, Royal Doulton, Wedgewood and Waterford some time ago - sold on a couple of years ago. And quite a few other examples of the 'socially acceptable side of capitalism' deals too!

    I hope it goes well for all involved!

    Adidas have sold TM? I'm sure someone told me a year ago they weren't looking to sell... Mind you, I also remember them thinking that Liverpool would be any good...

    TM have got a large chunk of the top ten signed up on big deals. I have to say that knowing how much of each club/ball costs are disappearing off to Rory et al would make me rather less likely to buy their stuff. Still, I'm sure someone has done the maths.

    Would like to be fly in wall of TM when they are producing their business model.

    Their outgoings must be massive. Rory and Tiger this year, to add to DJ, Day, Garcia, Rose, Kaymer, Holmes, as well as loads of other PGA pros, and they seem to be sponsoring half of youtube now too.


    I only ever see people who bought a new driver this year with the Callaway Epic, not seen any new M1 or M2...hardly ever see taylor made balls, don't even know if taylor made make wedges?

    Understand that the M family of woods is the number one selling woods in the U.K. for this year and last year.

    No doubt their sales worldwide are massive

    They will never be like that in Regards Irons and Balls

    It seems like the ball this year is a big jump. Is it enough to get past Titleist, unlikely, but it's definitely a step up.

    Yeah fair enough if the figure is accurate I hear that too

    I just don't see that many while I have seen a lot of Epics, it seemed to get great hype this year
