Beware of imitations!

Earlier this week we published a story from the U.S. which stated that seizures of counterfeit golf goods have increased by 33 percent from 2009 to 2010. At the end of that report there is a link to the site where you can inspect example of counterfeit golf balls, clubs and clothing. It’s worth taking a look at the story because such things are happening all over the world. This harms legitimate businesses and can put consumers at risk.

In wishing you happy weekend viewing of the U.S. Open, however, may I assure you that this edition of is the real thing!
