    Welcome to the private equity world......don’t pay people and never have inventory on the books.




    Or welcome to the pretty much anything world....



    I've seen probably 1000 threads here over the years where guys openly crap on middle men like the "big box" stores, they refuse to buy there because some college kid had the gall to not know about some tour issue club or model coming out 2 years from now. Online sellers have also made a big dent



    Nobody wants to carry inventory. OEMs don't because it's a liability, Big box distributors want to cut back because their business is being attacked by online vendors and discounting policies. Not to mention there's just less of them now due to bankruptcies



    But the consumer won't pay more for the convenience of inventory. They just don't realize that they are making that decision.



    This is what happens when you put distributors out of business, because OEMs won't stock and even if they want to they can't forecast properly.



    This is a side effect in many markets. Buy online and take a chance it's what you want....or wait a long time for your order. It's the same thing at places like Home Depot or Best Buy now. They barely keep anything in stores

    I placed an order about 3 weeks ago and still hasn’t shipped. Supposedly some shipments didn’t come in as expected for taylormade but not sure. Almost considering cancelling the order but we’ll see

    i cancelled 2x 790 orders because of this.



    Also had a M4 order but they coudln't get a Orange DI 6 shaft so I told them black then they couldn't get a Black DI 7 for the fairway.

    And then there are people that complain because Global Golf doesnt have enough discount codes anymore.



    Get used to it people. Keep buying on BST, or last years model on globalgolf or 3balls. The OEMs will just make you wait longer. Or will charge more.

    I wonder if this issue is only applying to TM irons/woods. I ordered a TP Collection Soto putter from DD's last Wednesday morning. I opted for the Winn AVS black midsize pistol grip which is not a stock option. The putter arrived at my house today, 4th business day from California to North Carolina. I was shocked needless to say!

    Yes I was asking a retailer when would be delivered if I ordered Friday, they said they could not let me know until Friday when they actually make the order. so now out of my head - like my current two iron.

    Hmmmmm. Just in time manufacturing process? Sales doing better than anticipated? More non US orders? Have to admit our local shop owner has waited a month for his 790s and he does thousands of pounds of business with TM each week..

    I ordered mine from Taylormade's website Monday with a custom lie and grip. Got confirmation this morning it has shipped and will be here Monday. We wouldn't wait though, as soon as it's officially released and marketed they'll be a huge run on them.

    That is pretty rediculous, pretty much anything I've ordered from titleist shipped in less than a week.




    That's because Titleist doesn't change anything so they can properly forecast
    More about Titleist has a piece of the iron market and TM doesn't. TM isn't much different than Nike was in the game, ton of advertising, low sales. If not for the M Series, TM would have disappeared several years ago. Good irons, just not close to the heavyweights....

    If only these distributors could do a little more, like installing grips, shafts, lie and loft .... that would be something different.

    Instead of just having std stock and unprepared employees.



    As a manufacturer why having a store just mak8ng money for doing nothing? I prefer having my own channel.

    Even sometimes damaging your brand for not correctly knowing how to handle or recommend your product. For too long these malpractices generated money, things are changing.



    Know if you have a store like club champion as example, it’s a different story. They do work

    Obviously you missed the point. For a few years TM was dropping woods more than once a year, hence the box stores (Dick's, etc) left with large inventory...

    Which is $399, then when the MSRP is cut to $399, the manufacturer gives you a $50 credit........Ask Dick's how that worked for them?.....lol

    Let's place orders for custom equipment during the busiest time of the golf equipment cycle, mid-march through late-April, and be upset items are backordered. This time of the year is nothing new in terms of delays.



    Do you know how many large accounts (retailers and clubs) are receiving their seasons inventory right now? All of them.



    TM is also famous for over-estimating the timing and delivering early. It is better to estimate 10-12 weeks and send in 6.

    Welcome to the private equity world......don’t pay people and never have inventory on the books.




    Or welcome to the pretty much anything world....



    I've seen probably 1000 threads here over the years where guys openly crap on middle men like the "big box" stores, they refuse to buy there because some college kid had the gall to not know about some tour issue club or model coming out 2 years from now. Online sellers have also made a big dent



    Nobody wants to carry inventory. OEMs don't because it's a liability, Big box distributors want to cut back because their business is being attacked by online vendors and discounting policies. Not to mention there's just less of them now due to bankruptcies



    But the consumer won't pay more for the convenience of inventory. They just don't realize that they are making that decision.



    This is what happens when you put distributors out of business, because OEMs won't stock and even if they want to they can't forecast properly.



    This is a side effect in many markets. Buy online and take a chance it's what you want....or wait a long time for your order. It's the same thing at places like Home Depot or Best Buy now. They barely keep anything in stores




    If only these distributors could do a little more, like installing grips, shafts, lie and loft .... that would be something different.

    Instead of just having std stock and unprepared employees.



    As a manufacturer why having a store just mak8ng money for doing nothing? I prefer having my own channel.

    Even sometimes damaging your brand for not correctly knowing how to handle or recommend your product. For too long these malpractices generated money, things are changing.



    Know if you have a store like club champion as example, it’s a different story. They do work




    Golftown does all of those things and they had to close several stores last year and nearly went bankrupt



    The golftown near me is fantastic. They do fittings, club work, etc
