    Look for lots of movement from Taylormade players if they’re not in the top 20 in world golf rankings.

    Maybe should be a new thread, but does anyone make decisions in equipment purchases because of who is under contract to play that brand? I could care less and make decisions on what actually makes the most sense with my swing, as well as look at address (confidence).



    The manufacturers pay the pro's for marketing assuming you will buy, do you?

    Tries to remember even touching a Ram club much less buying one....









    I'm going to have to go "NO" to this question.
    swing is irrelevant, score is everything

    just say NO.... to practice swings

    The list of world class players that left Titleist after gaining fame is quite long!

    Remember when Nike made golf clubs? Those were great days, Tiger, Rory, Michelle, man, those clubs flew off the shelves.

    I can't disagree with that, but theres the fact that JT's father and grandfather either were or are active Titleist staffers and I would guess that the brand loyalty runs pretty deep there. I mean, money certainly talks, but it's not really like JT is really in need of the added money that he would get from some big contract with another OEM. Spieth stayed, and, in case you haven't heard, they are good buddies, so I'm guessing they talk about that kind of thing.

    I disagree with nothing you say..........but the lure of a $50 million contract is VERY difficult for anyone to pass up..........and that's probably about what he'd be in line for.

    Titleist doesnt work that way never has. he wont make more than spieth. same guys that left Tiger,Phil, Ernie and Rory walk when their demands were high. they dont need them, they laugh all the way to the bank on ball sales alone..

    Having just won 10 large in the Fed Ex cup, I don't see him changing to anything other that what has been working for him. Titleist looks good in his bag, traditional.
