Update to the long running patent feud between Acushnet (Titleist) and Callaway over the ProV1 golf ball. An appeals court has granted Acushnet’s request for a new trial. It was found that the previous court ruling was not valid due to some issues regarding the court not allowing Titleist to present defense evidence.
So how does this affect us? It probably doesn’t. ProV1’s are still in stores and are not in any thread of being taken off shelves anytime soon. At this point however you can go back to paying $55 a dozen and we’ll wait to hear the results of the next trial.
