Counterfeit Yes! Putters - a statement from Yes! Golf
June 28, 2010

Counterfeit golf clubs - a huge international scam costing the golf industry over $6 Billion a year, in the hands of organised crime. Not only are fake clubs an economic rip-off, they can also be dangerous when used, as heads may fly off and shafts may snap, causing injury or even death - Ed.

In spite of extensive and costly efforts by manufacturers, Chinese government inspectors, police and customs agents, the golf counterfeit market is booming. Unfortunately, the consumer ends up with a similar looking product that does not perform as well and often would not meet the requirements set by the USGA and other golf sanctioning authorities around the world.

Yes! Golf has recently become the target of a severe Trademark infringement by a company in Korea known as KJ Golf. Pending an injunction by Korean courts, Yes! Golf’s legitimate distributor in Korea will be confronted by thousands of illegally produced putters made in China and imported into Korea bearing the Yes! Golf trademark and nearly identical putter designs and model names of our genuine putters.

The exclusive legal distributor for Yes! putters and related Yes! branded merchandise in Korea is Progear Holdings Co. LTD. To alert retailers and consumers about these counterfeit putters, we are making available herein photos showing the differences between genuine Yes! products and the counterfeits.

Fake Yes! Golf Putters in Korea - in each case here the fake is the pink club
(although note that Yes! do make a 'Pink' series)

We at Yes! Golf value the recognition and support for our brand in Korea and want to ensure that Korean Golfers get the genuine (best performing) product possible which are approved by the USGA and R&A for worldwide use in tournaments.

The golfing community throughout the world needs to recognize the enormous effect that counterfeit products have on our industry’s collective ability to maintain brand integrity and provide you with the quality products that you deserve and want.
