Our hearts and thoughts go out to the fellow Southern California golf club manufacturers and distributors’ family and friends. Many of you might not know, but So. Cal. is by far the largest concentration of golf club companies in the world. The largest of manufacturers such as Callaway, TaylorMade and Titleist all have their headquarters in the San Diego area. Many of the shaft manufacturer’s headquarters as well as grip manufacturer Lamkin are also in the San Diego vicinity. One of the hardest hit areas affected by the wildfires is Poway, which is where Aldila is located. There are a number of other golf club manufacturers and distributors who reside just to the nort in the Los Angeles area that are also being affected by the wildfires including Hireko and Winn grips amongst others. Let’s all hope Mother Nature cooperates and spares not just any potential disruption in the golf supply chain, but more importantly the human toll of those that could loose all their worldly possessions.
