It's no secret that this market is slowly drifting to other companies. It's also growing. The Proshop was created for the serious golfer. If they want it to succeed, they'll have to invest in it. This market may be small, but it buys in bulk. It's also growing along with the casual market. <Tinfoil hat alert> Neglect it, and people shop elsewhere. Lose that market, and you lose the legitimacy of your brand. Lose that, and you become Wham-O.</Tinfoil hat alert>
