Authorities have announced the seizure of more than 7,500 fake golf clubs after two co-ordinated raids in Shanghai.

The seizure brings the total number of counterfeit products intercepted in the last 18 months to 110,000.

The raids were co-ordinated by the Golf Manufacturers Anti-Counterfeiting Working Group, which consists of a number of the leading manufacturers including Titleist, Callaway, TaylorMade, Ping and Cleveland.

"Fighting counterfeit clubs is a long war, but we’re trying to take it one battle at a time," said Joe Nauman, Executive Vice President for Corporate and Legal for Acushnet Company. "The counterfeiting of clubs is a global issue but raids often generate new information that leads to future arrests and protects the future of the game."
