A few weeks ago, the internet was buzzing with rumors and truths that Fortune Brands, the company that owns Acushnet announced that they would be selling off the golf industry giant. Since that time, not a day goes by that a new company is mentioned as the place that will land this iconic giant.
Well as the year is coming to an end, THP keeps hearing the same name as that the front runner in obtaining Acushnet and it is none other than Under Armour. At this point, these are still rumors, but sometimes where there is smoke there is fire. THP has always thought the buyer would come from Asia, but this does make for an interesting twist and certainly would surprise us quite a bit. What are your thoughts? Is it a good fit? Do you think it will take place?
