Lost in the Masters chatter was Callaway refunding Golfsmith buyers of Diablo Edge drivers after a Phil Mickelson win. Jason Sobel reports that the refunds are in progress and it's going to cost Callaway at least $1 million.
"Phil Mickelson gave golfers across the country and internationally a great present to start the season," said Golfsmith President and CEO Marty Hanaka. "Phil's win is great for the game and wonderful for Golfsmith and our valued retail and online customers."
"We couldn't be happier that Phil claimed his third green jacket," said Brian Groves, vice president of U.S. marketing for Callaway Golf, "and that thousands of Golfsmith customers now will start off the season with a new Callaway driver."
Me? I'm not one of 'em. And since I failed to load up, potentially lucky readers won't be, either.
That's OK, though. Hindsight is 20/20, of course. Besides, my mailman doesn't even play golf.
