If you HAD to go one brand, what's the one club you'd worry about?


Recommended Posts

I could probably play all Ping but have never really found many of their irons appealing. The woods I love, the wedges are solid, the putter would love if I can get access to a PLD putter, it's just irons. 


Now another option could be Cobra or Mizuno seeing as no putters (no LH Mizuno) means I can putt with whatever I want. Now if crazed gunman says the brand needs to have a putter then back to Ping or maybe TaylorMade, you know what the gunman will probably pull the trigger with me trying to decide. 


Driver: 9° Ping G410 Plus - HZRDUS RDX Smoke Blue 6.0

3W: 13.5° Ping G410 LST - Aldila NV 2KXV Green 75X

3H: 19° Ping G410 - Tensei CK Pro Orange 90TX

Irons: 4i - 7i Srixon 585 / 8i - PW Srixon 785 - AMT Tour White S300

Wedges: 51° MD3 - 56° Glide 2 - 60° PM2

Putter(s): TP Mills Trad II - Lajosi Sensor - Kingdom Putter - - and more.

I could go all PING in my bag with the exception of the putter. Never got along with PING putters as much as Bettinardi.

I could easily play all Callaway. What I’m reading Jeff didn’t say you didn’t get a pick the brand. I use Vokey wedges in my 50 and 56 wedges , no problem with a change though. But then again I suck at golf. 

Livin' proof that Lefties are not naturally talented.

All Titleist = no problem

All TaylorMade = no problem

All Mizuno = would worry about putter

All Callaway = would worry about irons

All Ping = would worry about irons and wedges

If wasn’t confined to current model year product,  could make a set up out of most any major brand with relative ease.  The one club that would take a bit of thought would be the fairway wood slot.

Ok, I’m pretty sure I’d be fine with the following brands as long as I can get fitted.







Tour Edge (the putter would be the hardest though)


Honma (completely unfamiliar with their putters though)

Cobra easy for me

Srixon/Cleveland easy again

Ping, I’ve played driver/wedges so could get along with rest I’m sure

Great twist on an age old question.

I think I'd choose Callaway across the board so that I could putt with an Odyssey.  I already use their irons and wedges and feel pretty sure I could find driver/fairways/hybrids to fill out the bag.  The ball would be a problem, as I don't like the Chrome Soft at all.  Haven't hit a Chrome Soft X.

Wilson has slowly invaded my bag throughout the year anyway. I play their fairways and now irons. Just haven't found the deal I want on wedges before I snag some of them too. 


That leaves driver and putter. I am 100% certain that I could find something to put with from the 100+ years Wilson has been making golf clubs, which means I only have to truly worry about driver.


I have the C300 amd D300 and although I like both of them, they just can't compete with my old R15, and I shudder to think how they'd go vs a SIM or Mavrik. I could live withe playing either of them, but I would know I was leaving yards on the table.

Wedges... Very particular about how wedges look. 


So I'd be happy with Mizuno. Callaway and Titleist would be a small mission but not impossible. The rest of them I doubt it...

I don’t think I’d have any issue going with Titleist, ping, or TaylorMade.  Probably Callaway/odyssey would be fine as well.  If I went away from tm I would miss the spider x putter, but I’d get over it, and I suppose I could find a Scotty that would get the job done. Mostly, for an obsessive gear guy I guess I’m not that particular.

Putter.  I’d go all ping.   But I did hold a B60 with a paper thin topline last week that I believe could work.     I guess if we’re talking dream world I could get a thin  topline anser 2 with tungsten weights and a sight dot made.

Titleist/Acushnet and the biggest worry would be the driver.


Once upon a time they had things like the 975J & D which didn't really have an equal, now everyone has caught up and surpassed.


TS and TSi have closed the gap but it took a decade (The jury is still out as to whether they can match the Maverick or G410/425).

I’d go all TM but worry about putter (spiders aren’t great for me and their blades suck) or go all Ping and worry about the wedges

    • Sony Open Pics from January 11, 2022 Part 1
      I was able to get out to the Sony Open today to take a few pics.  I guess due to Covid precautions they kept the spectators pretty far from the players.  Also due to camera restrictions they've put in place, I wasn't able to bring the big lens like I normally do. Hopefully they'll ease up on the ropes and I'll be able to get more pics tomorrow!
