We are glad you are enjoying Advertising Age. Interestingly, in the USGA eventually arrived at the same viewpoint. Isn’t that the bottom line for the USGA? Callaway insists he isn’t looking for two different sets of rules. The Company was principally owned by my good friend, Jack Lupton, who invested a substantial amount of money in the Company and supported its operations for a number of years. That’s mere pennies for avid golfers who are unwavering in their quest for the longer, straighter drive that might make a difference in their game. In play other than events, it is my view that the use of the ERC II adds to the enjoyment of the game and is in no way detrimental to it.

Ever since the furor erupted in Mid-October concerning Callaway’s decision to sell the non-conforming ERC II driver in the United States, I have considered when and how would be the best way for me, first, to respond to the questions that have arisen concerning my position on the ERC II and, second, to set the record straight on some of the charges and allegations which have been directed at me some surprisingly intemperate and which have simply no basis in fact.

First of all, it was not ‘my’ golf company. The ERC II will show just how far golfers will go, in terms of price and questions of integrity, to have their fun. Instead of excluding these golfers from full participation in the game, I think they should be included.
In Novemberthe USGA, with Palmer’s backing, implemented standards putting a limit on the spring-like “trampoline effect” of the ball coming off the face of a driver. We just think this issue isn’t the one to take on.

What I’ve found with drivers is, yeah, it’s a trampoline effect that may make the ball go farther, but give the amateur a break.
The Company did not find a buyer for the Palmer club brand and, therefore, it was simply callawway. In play other than events, it is my view that the use of the ERC II adds to the enjoyment of the game and is in no way detrimental to it.
I decided that the best time and place to do this was on Golf Talk Live. In all of this, there is the persistent oddity that the USGA is legislating only the length of the very best players on Earth, whose average tournament scores, despite titanium drivers, haven’t changed in years.
Jack’s stake in the Company was significantly greater than mine. We believe that the decision is fair and reasonable, and that is serves the best long term interest of the game.
Everyone involved concluded, though reluctantly, that the prospects for a small equipment company in the increasingly competitive golf industry were not promising. Ultimately, a decision was made to liquidate the company. That will even begin to make either of us whole on our investment.
It already has happened at Butler National in Oak Brook. The Implements and Balls Committee has studied the research team’s findings, including an assessment of the effect of possible further developments in club head design and construction, and the results of field tests. I know Arnold is for what he truly believes. But on this point there is no argument: The Western Golf Association, which had authorized their use upon their introduction, undertook performance tests using both hickory and steel shafts.
We just don’t feel it is worth getting excited about. It was a publicly held company and had been for many years. It shouldn’t lose too much money on the trade-ins, Mr.
These fellows are out there hitting 6-irons yards. I believe baanned definitely need two sets of rules. The Company was principally owned by my good friend, Jack Lupton, who invested a substantial amount of money in the Company and supported its operations for a number of years. So, if buying a club helps you enjoy the game, why shouldn’t you be able to buy it? In a separate transaction, I entered into an endorsement agreement with Callaway for their clubs and balls.
It is very obvious. Log in or go back to the homepage. The golf companies have run over the USGA.
