Why Tiger’s new clothing brand is called ‘Sun Day Red’ and not ‘Sunday Red’

Published

on

This week, TayorMade and Tiger Woods released their new clothing line, called “Sun Day Red”.

The promotional video was fantastic, but golf fans were a bit perplexed by the fact that “Sun Day” was two words rather than one.

While speaking to the New York Times, TaylorMade’s CEO, David Abeles, explained the meaning.

“Sunday red is the color that Mr. Woods has made very famous on Sundays, but Mr. Woods plays golf on more than just Sundays.”

Abeles also talked about the importance of “three’s”

That clears it up, right?

The wild reason why Mark Wahlberg was initially denied entry to an Australian golf club

Published

on

Hollywood star Mark Wahlberg is known for his love of golf but received a shock recently when he was initially denied entry to Sydney’s Elanora Country Club.

The reason? His socks. As first reported by the Australian Daily Telegraph, Wahlberg turned up to the club wearing black socks, which is against the Australian club’s all-white sock policy.

Speaking to the publication, the club’s general manager Cathy Neagle confirmed the reason for the denial, saying: “We have dress standards. They do include white socks.”

Taking to Instagram, Wahlberg mimiked an Australian accent to poke fun at the decision saying: “Socks not allowed on every golf course in Australia, believe it or not. Some courses require you to wear white socks. These are gym socks, man! What?!”

2-time major champ announces shock retirement from the sport at age of 33

Published

on

Multiple major champion and former World Number One So Yeon Ryu has announced that she will be retiring from professional golf.

Ryu, who won the 2011 US Women’s Open and 2017 Ana Inspiration (Now Chevron Championship), made the announcement via social media, calling the decision “one of the most significant decisions of my life.”

Taking to Instagram, Ryu said

“Hello everyone, Soyeon Ryu here.

I wanted to share one of the most significant decisions in my life with all of you today. Sadly, the Chevron Championship will be my last game on the LPGA tour.

After deciding to retire, I spent much time looking back on my career. So many memories came flooding back, and I felt so many emotions. But the more I thought about it, the more I was thankful for so many things. I am so grateful that I could do what I loved to do, day in and day out, and even make a career out of it. I am not going to lie; I had some hard patches, but despite some of the challenges, I truly enjoyed it all. And more than anything, I feel incredibly grateful for the love and support I’ve received from all of you throughout my career.

People often say, “Golf is life,” and I couldn’t agree more. I’ve learned so much through this game: patience, respect for others, endurance, and much more. Golf has taught me so many lessons. Now, I want to do something to make this sport even better. So, I hope you continue supporting me in the next chapter of my life.

I’m looking forward to giving a big hug to all of my friends on tour soon. I sincerely appreciate all of your love and support throughout the years. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I’ll see you guys in Houston. ;)”

Ryu, who won 6 LPGA titles during her career has yet to feature in an event in 2024 and her final event will be at next month’s Chevron Championship.

Callaway issues statement after report claimed company is for sale

Published

on

According to South Korea’s Chosun DailyTopgolf Callaway Brands Corp. is considering selling its Callaway Golf business, which is based in California. The report indicates the brand has a $3 billion valuation.

“The current rumored sale price for Callaway Golf is around $2.98 billion (4 trillion won). The price is considered to be reasonable by industry players given its significantly low market capitalization of $2.554 billion (about 3.4 trillion won), compared to that of rival Acushnet Holdings (Titleist) of $3.902 billion, and an accompanied management premium,” the report says.

It appears as if Topgolf would not be a part of the sale and would remain separate from the Callaway Golf brand.

After the news got out, the Callaway stock price (MODG) was up around 10% for Wednesday.

However, since the report has surfaced, Topgolf Callaway Brands Corp have stated that they are “unaware” of these discussions.

“While it is our long-standing practice not to respond to market rumors and speculation, in light of today’s unusual market activity, coupled with a recent media report originating in Korea regarding discussions of a potential sale of the Company or its golf equipment business, we confirm that we are not aware of any such discussions,” the company wrote in an emailed comment. “We do not intend to comment further on this topic, and we assume no obligation to make any further announcement or disclosure should circumstances change.”
