MacGregor Golf Appoints Final Threesome
ATLANTA–MacGregor Golf has halved the number of agencies in its $3-5 million account review to three, confirmed company spokesman Steve Nehru. A representative for Burris Advertising said the High Point, N.C., shop was a finalist, while Atlanta’s T.G. Madison said it had been eliminated. Holland Advertising in New York and Atlanta’s Fricks/Firestone referred all questions to the client, while Austin Kelley Advertising of Atlanta and Husk Jennings Advertising in Jacksonville, Fla., did not return phone calls. Speaking through Nehru, MacGregor Golf marketing vice president Jeffrey Sears said he would not confirm nor deny Burris, Fricks/Firestone and Holland as finalists “because then we’re locked into a decision and it doesn’t give us any wriggle room.” A final decision is expected this week. Raleigh, N.C., incumbent Howard, Merrell & Partners did not defend the Atlanta golf club maker’s advertising account.
