About a week ago MacGregor golf was bought by Golfsmith. I’ve got two sets of MacGregor irons, a MacGregor 3-wood and two Bobby Grace / MacGregor putters. Or is it three? Can’t even remember.
Another “classic” line like Ben Hogan is absorbed and has become a shadow of what it used to be. It sounds like Golfsmith bought the brand for pennies if I’m reading this article right, $1.75 million over three years? Maybe that is just for the “rights” to the brand.
Regardless, I’ve been a fan of MacGregor and had success with the gear I own from them. While Golfsmith will have MacGregor be a “house” brand for them, this will obviously mean you won’t see it in other big name chains.
Greg Norman is now officially out of the golf equipment business and owns no stake in any golf equipment company. Sell sell!
