Golf read: Here comes the women, there go the men

Golf lost close to 390K active players last year, according to the National Golf Foundation.

Though 260K women took up the sport, about 650K men gave it up.

Earlier this week, Dick's Sporting Goods (DKS -1.1%) gave a dire read on golf sales for the rest of the year with CEO Ed Stack saying a bottom hasn't been found yet.

Dick's owns the Golf Galaxy chain, while Callaway (ELY +0.4%) is a golf equipment leader.

    (I would send this correction privately but can identify no method to do that.)

    Too expensive, too much time, and un-friendly to beginners.
    Institute a 6-hole round and rate.


    And, drop most/all the formalities.
