My clubs are...and my car is a...

Pretty self-explanatory, I would like other's to chime in. And maybe a short reason why they drive what they drive. Some equipment as it relates to car research!



I keep reading on different threads how people wouldn't pay the $300+ per club PXG, and how it is the Lamborghini of clubs, or how PXG users also drive status symbol Ferrari's. I don't necessarily think that is the case. While there maybe some price correlation, I don't necessarily think there's a status symbol or performance correlation. Only way to find out, is to take a sample!



Plus, it would be interesting to see if there are other significant results or outliers. Are classic club users more likely to use a dependable 4 door sedan? Are mizuno users more likely to own a Japanese car? Are Adams users more likely to own a Buick?



If you want to turn this into a PXG debate, feel free. But I am more interested in everyone's responses and comments on the main topic! Thanks!

    Juice here...few years older Titleist APs, few years older Hyundai Sonata.



    Reason: comfortable, dependable ride. Never had a problem with it, and I drive a lot for work; Already have 130k on the car.

    i play mostly run of the mill old-ish stuff. 2 year old driver, 3 yr old irons. scotty i've had about 10 years i think. come to realize a while back clubs don't matter much in improving your game. also nobody i know is impressed with flashy clubs. spendy people in my experience usually have a bag full of one brand (usually titleist).



    i drive a 911 convertible because i like fun cars and it's gorgeous.

    Clubs in sig, drive a Volvo v40 cross country. Just because it's comfortable (as I do 25000 miles a year), was better specced for the price than the equivalent German cars that I liked and it feels solid and well made.

    Clubs are a Powerbilt AFO DFX driver, Cobra Bio Cell 3/4 FW, Cobra Fly-Z 3/4 Hybrid, Mizuno JPX 850 Forged irons, Mizuno S5 wedges, and a 16 year old Odyssey Dual Force 222 putter, which was the first club I ever bought. I got the irons and wedges only after a generous Christmas gift from my grandmother in-law, the driver I got on the BST here, Cobra hybrid was a demo club from Golfsmith, and the FW was an open box from Global Golf that I got for $55 new...so I'm typically a bargain shopper.



    As for bargain shopping, I drive a BONE STOCK 1991 Jeep Wrangler S in yellow. Bought it off a friend for a song, and if my wife and I weren't talking kids, I'd never own another car in my life. It's an honest car, and does everything I need. Sometimes I wish it were faster, but that's what engine swaps are for.



    I love that this topic exists, because it merges my two favorite things in life. Hearing what people drive is fascinating, because everyone has reasons!

    Man! I agree, cool to see reasons, especially as it relates to hobbies, family, work, or just sensibility.

    I don't need much when it comes to a vehicle, buy the wife the new car to drive. It's also easier to make more club purchases when you buy your wife a new car and keep driving your 12 year old truck. What is she gonna say, really...lol.

    For people in the U.S., I believe, the Etios is like a cooler version of North America's Toyota Yaris and the Amarok is Volkswagen's competitor to the Nissan Frontier/Navara and Toyota's Tacoma/Hilux.



    I would drive a mid sized pickup named Amarok! There have been talks to try to make it available in the U.S. soon.
