The U.S. Golf Manufacturers Anti-Counterfeiting Working Group (The Golf Group) announced this week that six raids of counterfeit golf product facilities were conducted last month in China, with the latest seizing over 20k pieces of goods. The organization was aided by Shanghai Police who detained seven suspects during the raids.

A total of 21,281 pieces of counterfeit golf equipment was seized as well as 51,904 fake trademark labels including XXIO, Titleist, Scotty Cameron, TaylorMade, PXG, Callaway, and Ping.

The Golf Group

Manufacturing and distribution of counterfeit golf equipment has become a serious problem in China, as more than 2 million counterfeit products has been seized by The Golf Group since 2004.

The Golf Group

The group has been adamant about trying to maintain the integrity of the game and has made it clear that any counterfeiters of golf equipment will face severe legal consequences.

Paul Casey’s caddie John McLaren to take break due to mental health reasons

Published

on

As first reported by the PGA Tour’s Ben Everill,Paul Casey’s caddie, John McLaren is taking an indefinite mental health break from the game of golf.

The 55-year old long time caddie has been traveling across the world with Luke Donald, Tony Johnstone and Paul Casey over the course of the past 31 years.

The last 18 months have been particularly difficult for McLaren who has had a hard time constantly traveling to many different countries during the COVID-19 pandemic:

“The accumulation of the last 18 months of travel, the testing, the uncertainty has taken its toll, not only on me, but how I am at home with my family,” he told PGATour.com. “And once that starts to have an impact on my young children and my wife, whom I very much love, then the questions start to arise about the sacrifices relative to what needs to be gained.”

Paul Casey expressed approval of McLaren’s decision, acknowledging the bravery it takes to speak out about those struggling with mental health.

He also emphasized that this isn’t a retirement, and he expects “Johnny Long Socks” to be back on his bag at some point in the future.
