Callaway to be bought by Dick's? in Spy News Posted May 18, 2010 I wonder how this owuld affect all their tour staff. I would imagine many of these pros do not want DICK's SPORTING GOODS all over their bags, but they are signed into contracts. I can also imagine that Dick's does not want the overhead of having to pay to play all these tour professionals. I will wait and see what happens. I think this would be a good business move for the current owners of Callaways (to get out while there is still value), but terrible for golf in general. Customer service is king and Dick's has a severe lack of it.
