A press release from some golf business pals of mine:
New ClubmakingFORUM.com Offers Direct Talk with Golf Equipment Manufacturers
AUSTIN, Texas â€” Golfâ€™s only wire service solely dedicated to clubmaking, ClubmakingWIRE proudly introduces an exciting, new addition to its â€˜Direct-to-Clubmakerâ€™ strategy â€” ClubmakingFORUM.com, an all-new web site delivering direct communication between component manufacturers and custom clubmakers.
New for 2006, ClubmakingFORUM.com features a chatroom format dedicated to component manufacturers and custom clubmaking and, unlike other forums, ClubmakingFORUM features regular â€˜Direct Talkâ€™ sessions with the engineers and designers of the worldâ€™s most renowned golf equipment and component manufacturers, as well as the Professional Clubmakerâ€™s Society. For example, the first scheduled Direct Talk will feature Skip Pankewich, product developer for United Sports Technologies (USTÂ®), who was instrumental in developing the revolutionary Frequency Filteredâ„¢ putter shaft. (The UST Direct Talk will be Feb.22nd at 3pm CST.)
â€œThere are thousands of golfers who enjoy the craft of custom clubmaking and who crave ever more technical information and discussion on clubheads, shaft, grips and the custom fitting process,â€ says John Meng, founder of ClubmakingWIRE. â€œComponent manufacturers that provide that open feedback and discussion gain a significant advantage on competitors, and the multi-tiered strategy of our â€˜ClubmakingNETWORKâ€™ delivers that advantage. In addition to distributing news directly to clubmakers through ClubmakingWIRE, the ClubmakingFORUM allows manufacturers to directly communicate with clubmakers.â€
In addition to its unique direct talk approach, the ClubmakingFORUM showcases the newest products and technologies, independent product reviews; technical articles on shafts, grips and clubheads, custom-fitting tips and a direct link with ClubmakingWIRE for the latest news in the component industry.
â€œWeâ€™ve always been a strong proponent of direct communication with clubmakers,â€ says Ray Lucas, vice president of sales and marketing for Royal Precision, one of the Charter Sponsors of ClubmakingFORUM. â€œThrough the new ClubmakingFORUM, we can open and maintain a direct line of communication with clubmakers and golfers that reinforces and repeats our message, thereby providing the desired frequency and repetition that is often hard to come by in a market saturated with the multi-million dollar ad campaigns of OEMs.â€
