Possible Callaway takeover bid?

My buddy BogeyMan has posted an article about a possible takeover bid of Callaway Golf.

He mentions that Callaway is the nation’s largest golf manufacturer. Is this the case? This has made me wonder just who the top 5 or 10 golf manufacturers are in sequence.

I thought Titleist was the largest. Starting google search…

    As far as overall revenue, it is:
    1. Acushnet (Titleist, Footjoy, Cobra, Pinnacle)
    2. Callaway (Callaway, Odyssey, Ben Hogan, Top Flite)
    3. TaylorMade-adidas Golf (TaylorMade, adidas Golf, Maxfli)

    Obviously, most of Acushnet’s revenue is in balls and shoes, and Callaway has a big portion in balls with Top Flite.

    I am pretty sure that if you take just golf clubs sold in 2004 that TaylorMade is No. 1, passing Callaway for the first time in a while.

    That’s an interesting topic, perhaps for another post.
