I'm not sure golf punk have actually gone under just yet - we saw Dan their equipment editor at the cobra launch last week and he said the next issue was coming soon and that the break in publication since the October (?) issue had been due to takeover. It was odd that their website was down though

Thnakfully GM is in good health and although we're finding trading tougher than a year ago (car advertising, what car advertising!) we can't really complain

Golf International have gone bi-monthly (i suspect due to tough market conditions) but as far as I know its still business as usual with our 'friends' at TG and World

I admit I have bought a few copies of golf punk in the past, generally when I was in the airport and waiting on a flight etc. I found it to be a decent effort at attracting the younger golfers into the way of the monthly mag.
I can remember an interview with Darren Clarke and have to say it was one of the better interviews with golfers Ive read. Some of the stuff in it isnt to my taste but then, find me a mag where everything is applicable to everyone.
Im sure it will be fine.

With the name it might be difficult to go for a different readership but then what do I know about marketing as an accountant, it's just a cost to me!
