Today, while reading the business headlines on, I noticed a press release from the United States Golf Manufacturers Anit-Counterfeiting Working Group, which stated that a golf retailer in Shanghai had been convicted of selling counterfeit golf equipment.

According to the press release, the retailer, who’s name is interestingly Xie Fu Ping, “was sentenced to 1 year’s imprisonment (suspended for 1 year) and ordered to pay a fine. The criminal conviction followed enforcement conducted by the Chinese authorities in August 2005 when the police raided Xie’s store and seized counterfeit golf inventory valued at US$57,682.”

I am glad that the foreign authorities are cracking down on counterfeit clubs.

Also, for those interested, “The U.S. Golf Manufacturers Anti-Counterfeiting Working Group consists of the world’s leading golf equipment manufacturers. Its members and brands include Acushnet Company – Titleist, FootJoy and Cobra Golf; Callaway Golf – Odyssey, Top-Flite and Ben Hogan; Cleveland Golf-Never Compromise; Nike; PING; and TaylorMade-adidas Golf – Maxfli.”
