(Reuters) - Edwin Watts Golf Shops LLC, which has about 90 stores in the U.S. Southeast, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection on Monday due to increased competition and waning enthusiasm for the sport, according to a court filing.

The retailer, owned by private equity firm Sun Capital Partners Inc, will seek a sale of its assets by December 6 through a court-supervised auction, according to papers filed in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Wilmington, Delaware.
