UK’s second largest golf retailer Golf Direct continued to be at the centre of a battle this morning. On Friday, the day after administration was filed Sports Direct who own a 25% share in the 20 store company had changed the locks on its Huddersfield Headquarters, locking the staff out. Today the locks had been changed back and the staff were protesting. Golf UK boss John Andrew has complained that Sports Direct are taking over the administration process. He has pledged to speak to staff, one of whom has called the situation “a farce” this afternoon to reassure them about the situation.
