今日の出来事から 9月21日(水) PGA頑張れ!

 ということで、JBホームズが昨年に続き、来店しました。 Dedexランキングでは26位でしたが、頑張ってほしい。ワイフのエリカ、コーチのマット、そしてキャディーのブランドン、そしてベルト屋のボブと役者はそろってました。

まあ、良い傾向です。アトランタに来て「TAKAに行こう」というのですから。JBは日本のカレーが好きなのであります。最後に持ち帰る用にも渡しましたし、黒ニンニクも進呈しておきました。

 昨日はこんな選手も登場、ヒース・スローカム、42歳。
Bioアルファレッタ在住
 一応、PGAで7回勝っています。ただ年齢的にはこれから厳しいでしょう。彼を連れてきたのがラスティで、日本のクラブメーカー、フォーティーンのPGA売り込み隊長です。クーチャーも前はウェッジだけは使っていましたが、切り替えたそうです。今はこのヒースなど5人のプレイヤーがクラブを使っているとか。

 今年、アメリカでよく売れている車
YTD Sales: 139,932<br>Vs. 2015: -1.1%<br>The Hyundai Sonata was all new for the 2015 model year, and the redesigned sedan had been posting healthy sales numbers since its introduction. However, Sonata sales were down almost 32 percent compared to August of 2015, and the first eight months of sales resulted in a slight decline for this stylish ride. The 4-door Sonata is available with a few different powertrains, including a very efficient plug-in hybrid system. Sonata received a number of improvements for the 2016 model year, including better fuel economy and the availability of an Automatic Emergency Braking system.現代 エラントラ 13.9万台
YTD Sales: 142,498<br>Vs. 2015: 2.1%<br>Things continue to look good for the Jeep brand, with overall sales up more than 15 percent for the year. Cherokee posted a very large increase for the month of August, besting the same month of 2015 by more than 40 percent. This very capable 5-passenger crossover continues to be Jeep’s best-selling model. Cherokee delivers legendary Jeep off-road capability with available task-specific features that include lifted off-road suspension with skidplates, tow hooks, Selec-Terrain traction control, Jeep Active Drive Lock with rear locker and Selec-Speed Crawl Control.ジープ チェロキー 14.3万台
YTD Sales: 146,372<br>Vs. 2015: 3.2%<br>The GMC Sierra — twin to the Chevrolet Silverado — has had a strong showing throughout the year; however, August sales fell for the big truck. The Sierra is still looking positive for the year — in fact, year-to-date sales are the best since 2006. This success could be easily attributed to any number of updates the Sierra had for the 2016 model year, including revised styling as well as new features such as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.GMC シエラ 14.6万台
Price: Starting at $21,625<br>The Chevrolet Malibu is all-new for 2016 with a 3.6-inch longer wheelbase and 2.3-inch longer overall length for more interior volume, but 300 pounds lighter than its predecessor. The sleek new design features slim, swept-back headlights and a new take on the Chevrolet dual-port grille, as well as body-side creases that redefine the profile. The standard engine is an ECOTEC 1.5-liter turbocharged four cylinder that produces 163 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque, combined with a 6-speed automatic transmission. An optional ECOTEC 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine produces 250 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque, combined with an 8-speed automatic transmission. The ECOTEC 1.5 is EPA rated at 27 mpg city / 37 mpg hwy / 31 mpg combined, and the ECOTEC 2.0 is rated at 22 mpg city / 33 mpg hwy / 26 mpg combined.シボレー マリブ 14.8万台
MSRP: $16,780<br>Nissan’s popular compact sedan gets a refresh for the 2016 model year with updated styling and a number of new safety and convenience technologies. Standard features include an AM/FM/CD audio system, remote keyless entry, multiple airbags, a split-folding rear seat and 16-inch steel wheels. Safety features such as vehicle dynamics control, traction control and anti-lock brakes are also standard. Power comes from 1.8-liter 4-cylinder engine that produces 130 horsepower. Fuel-economy numbers are quite good — Sentra is rated at 27 city / 36 hwy when equipped with the manual transmission. Upgrading to the Xtronic CVT jumps the mpg numbers to 29 and 38 respectively.日産 セントラ 15.6万台
YTD Sales: 158,475<br>Vs. 2015: -17.7%<br>One of just three Chevrolet models among the top 20 best-sellers, the Equinox is holding its own in the very competitive compact SUV market. That said, the small crossover saw a drop in sales of about 40 percent compared to August of 2015, so holding onto this position may become difficult as the year progresses. Equinox received a number of updates for the 2016 model year, including fresh styling and some new high-tech features.シボレー エクイノックス 15.8万台
YTD Sales: 169,279<br>Vs. 2015: -0.1%<br>The Explorer had a slight sales decline at the beginning of 2016, but this family-sized SUV has been a fixture on the best-sellers list and has made an impressive comeback over the last few months. The revised 2016 Explorer brings a fresh look, new features and a new 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine good for 270 horsepower. Note: Explorer figures include sales of the Explorer-based Police Interceptor Utility, which is reportedly the most popular vehicle for law enforcement officers.フォード エクスプローラー 16.9万台
YTD Sales: 189,892<br>Vs. 2015: -8.1%<br>Fusion continues to hold the honor of being the best-selling domestic-brand passenger car on this list. At the beginning of the year sales were strong, but they have declined in recent months; August sales are down 33 percent compared to one year ago. With available all-wheel drive and a variety of engine choices — including a very efficient plug-in hybrid — the Fusion makes a great option as a stylish family sedan. Sales may get a boost now that the revised 2017 Fusion has started rolling into showrooms.フォード フュージョン 18.9万台
YTD Sales: 206,699<br>Vs. 2015: 2.5%<br>In terms of sales, this small 5-passenger crossover from Ford has experienced some ups and downs in the last year. August numbers reveal a sales decrease of about 3 percent compared to 2015, but ultimately the Escape remains one of the best-selling SUVs in America. Available with a fuel-efficient EcoBoost powertrain as well as innovative features such as a hands-free tailgate release, the Escape also continues to be Ford’s best-selling SUV.フォード エスケープ 20.7万台
YTD Sales: 215,160<br>Vs. 2015: 14.4%<br>Nissan has found the perfect crossover formula with the Rogue, and it continues to experience impressive sales growth in 2016. August sales are up almost 20 percent compared to the same month last year. The stylish crossover features a 170-horsepower 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine, and with an advanced Xtronic transmission with Eco mode it has an EPA fuel economy rating as high as 33 mpg. Rogue is one of three Nissans on this 2016 best-sellers list.日産 ルーグ 21.5万台
YTD Sales: 197,644<br>Vs. 2015: -8.8%<br>August was the second month in a row during which the Altima had a large drop in sales compared to a year ago. Even though sales were down almost 40 percent compared to August of 2015, the Altima still remains Nissan’s best seller. The popular family sedan has been refreshed for the 2016 model year with new interior and exterior styling, enhanced technology and connectivity, a new Altima SR sports trim and new available safety features. Fuel economy also received a bump for the new model year.日産 アルティマ 19.7万台
YTD Sales: 230,942<br>Vs. 2015: 15.0%<br>Toyota’s RAV4 crossover experienced impressive sales last year, and with a redesigned model now arriving in showrooms it’s no surprise that this trend continues. August sales jumped almost 9 percent compared to 2015, bucking the overall drop for the brand. The new model features edgier styling, and it’s now available as a hybrid. All RAV4 Hybrids are 4WD — the gas engine combines with an electric motor to drive the front wheels, while an additional electric motor provides power to the rear wheels.トヨタ RAV4 23万台
YTD Sales: 231,415<br>Vs. 2015: 0.1%<br>Although Accords may not be rolling off dealer lots at the same phenomenal rates as years past, the popular family car is still one of the best-selling passenger cars on the market. Sales were down 26 percent in August compared to one year ago, with overall sales remaining flat year to date. An all-new 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid has been added to the lineup, featuring a number of high-tech features and impressive fuel economy, which could attract additional buyers.ホンダ アコード 23.1万台
YTD Sales: 231,609<br>Vs. 2015: 0.9%<br>Bolstered by strong August sales, the CR-V managed to move up the ranks and claim the title of best-selling SUV — at least for last month. In fact, this was the second record-setting month in a row for Honda’s compact crossover. The CR-V continues to offer consumers a comfortable, small crossover with great utility and excellent fuel economy, so we’ll keep an eye on sales as the year progresses.ホンダ CR-V 23.6万台
MSRP: $17,300<br>According to Toyota, more than 40 million Corollas have been sold since its introduction, and it is the currently the best-selling compact car in America. Corolla gets power from an efficient 1.8-liter engine that achieves 132 horsepower while delivering 37 mpg on the highway when equipped with the 6-speed manual transmission. For 2016 Corolla features the Entune Audio system which includes a 6.1 in. touch-screen display, AM/FM CD player, six speakers, auxiliary audio jack, a USB 2.0 port with iPod connectivity and control, advanced voice recognition, hands-free phone capability, phone book access, music streaming via Bluetooth and Siri Eyes Free.トヨタ カローラ 24.4万台
YTD Sales: 255,599<br>Vs. 2015: 15.4%<br>Demand for the all-new Civic continues to grow — sales in August increased 2.4 percent versus August 2015. The tenth generation of this popular car features fresh styling, improved aerodynamics, new vehicle architecture, a more spacious interior and two new engines. Fuel economy is also impressive — rated as high as 42 mpg with a new turbocharged powerplant. This increase in sales makes Civic the current leader in compact cars.ホンダ シビック 25.5万台
Price: Starting at $23,070<br>The Toyota Camry has been the best-selling car in America for the last 14 years, and it was redesigned for the 2015 model year with an aggressive new grille and front bumper. The current design continues for 2016 and into the 2017 model year with available LED headlights with integrated front turn signals and LED daytime running lights. New taillights wrap around into tapered rear quarter panels. The standard 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine produces 178 horsepower and 170 lb-ft of torque; with a 6-speed automatic transmission it’s EPA rated at 25 mpg city / 35 mpg hwy / 28 mpg combined.トヨタ カムリ 26.6万台
YTD Sales: 308,970<br>Vs. 2015: 4.6%<br>Ram trucks continue to have a lock on this third-place spot, even with a slight decrease in August sales versus 2015. A fuel-efficient EcoDiesel that claims 29 mpg on the highway and the popular off-road Rebel trim are helping to boost sales of this full-size pickup. Ram hopes the sales momentum will continue with the introduction of a more powerful HD pickup later in 2016.RAM トラック 30.8万台
YTD Sales: 380,176<br>Vs. 2015: -1.8%<br>The perennial runner-up to the Ford F-Series, Silverado has been refreshed with updated styling and a number of new features for 2016. A strong April helped Silverado put some positive annual sales numbers on the board, but the last four months have seen slight declines compared to 2015. Even with a slight drop in sales for the year, the big truck doesn’t show any sign of losing its No. 2 spot. The updated Silverado is available in a number of configurations and engine choices with a variety of high-tech features.シボレー シルバラード 38万台
YTD Sales: 527,847<br>Vs. 2015: 6.7%<br>The Ford F-Series truck has worn the sales crown as best-selling vehicle in America for more than 30 years and shows no signs of giving up the throne. Sales continue to be strong for this popular pickup. According to some rough calculations, more than 2,000 Ford F-Series trucks are sold every day in America. An all-new F-Series HD will begin arriving in showrooms shortly with a number of innovative features and impressive capability.フォード F150 52.7万台
とまあ、1位から3位までがトラックなのです。これがアメリカの現実、まあ国土の80%が田舎ですから一家に一台、必要なのです。カムリは乗用車では1位ですが、前年比ではかなり落ちています。8.6%減です。アコードは横ばい、シビックは’私の予想通り、復活して15%伸びています。これがホンダの車ですよ、と言わんばかりのデザインです。

 Photoワイドショーの話題
 まあ、美人も1週間見続ければ飽きる?まあ、近くで見るとかなり気持ち悪いと思います。

  9月19日、中国の住宅価格はバブル状態にあり、いつ破裂してもおかしくない。写真は上海の光復里地区で犬を連れて歩く女性。4月撮影(2016年 ロイター/Aly Song)中国もそうです
 中国の住宅価格はバブル状態にあり、いつ破裂してもおかしくない。深セン、上海、北京などの第1級主要都市の8月新築住宅価格は、前年比上昇率が最大37%近くに達した。価格はその他の都市でも上昇。こうした価格高騰は旧来型経済がなお存在することを示すとともに、不満が高まる温床の1つになっている。ロイターから

Atlanta, GA 7-Day Forecast
 ツアーチャンピオンシップ、暑いですよ。 日曜日の雨を聞けば、JBは「少し芝は柔らかいがまあまあ」と言っていました。平年なら80度のアトランタ、悪くても85度ですよ。それが90度近い、日向は100度です。

 店の斜め前にCheekyという名のスポーツバーが開きました。でもお客入っていない。10時でもうガラガラ。向かいのTupiloもオープン時の勢いがない。というか、Cheekyとお客と取り合っています。
 揚げ物が多いので同じ客層ですか?? 私はこういう試算をしたのです。Tupiloに300人入るとする。真横にCheekyが開店、これで400-450人しか来ない、600人は来るわけないのです。すると2で割ると400人なら200人、Tupiloの売り上げは下がる。さらにあと2週間でVerdeという名のメキシカンが開きます。Cheekyもメキシカンスポーツバーです。ということは300X3で900人は来ない。せいぜい500人が関の山。ということは1店舗あたり170人しか来ないという計算です。パイの大きさは同じなのです。同じモールの中でつぶし合い、パイの食い合いが始まる。
 うちは寿司屋ですから競合しません。別物の世界です。うちは100-130人来ればOKの店です。しかし上記の店が130人では赤字になるでしょう。1年以内にこの3つのうち、1つは撤退するのでは?というのが私の予測。面白いことに同じモールの中にChipotleまであります。ここもあまりお客が入っていません。
 大家のミスマッチ誘致ではないかと私は思っています。まあ、入るテナントがなかったのかどうかは知りませんが、先行きは怪しい。
