Previously, Nassau had been a part of TaylorMade’s supply chain. They made urethane and ionomer-covered balls along with the TaylorMade TP% and TP5x balls. 

According to Golf Datatech, until June 2021, the golf equipment sale was 78 percent compared to 2020. However, it is necessary to keep in mind that 2020 was a pandemic hit year. But if we compare the sale of 2021 until June with 2019, then it is 41 percent. Furthermore, between 2016 and 2021, the global golf ball market saw exponential growth as it went up to around 176 percent.
