I faintly see a TMAG towel on the floor, how dare you!!!!

love Titleist just got finishing touches to first all Titleist bag.   TSI2 9* driver +2 weight, Graphite Design Tour AD XC 6 TSI 15* and 18* + 2 weight, Graphite Design Tour AD XC 7

I am of the opinion that Titleist makes the best golf equipment.  Anybody else have a bag with only Titleist products?

I can only really play Titleist woods, and I'm a huge NP2 fan, love the wedges and the driving irons are so good. It's just those Mizzy blades that keep me coming back.

I have a TS2 driver, U510 1 iron, and T100 3 iron to pitching wedge. I don't like Vokey wedges much and I'm putter agnostic - I've gone back to an old Yes! putter, but I'll probably buy a LAB soon enough. I had 755 irons until I bought the T100's and the 755's treated me very well for a long time so I was keen to stick with what I knew. The T100's are basically the modern equivalent. I haven't had a Titleist driver since my 905T, many years ago, and I rate the TS2 pretty highly.

 

While I am not a one-eyed Titleist fan, I do tend to look at their gear first. It helps that I'm on a first-name basis with the local Titleist rep, and the pro at my club has a good relationship with Titleist. That goes a long way, not just in terms of discounts when I buy stuff, but access to gear to try out. If I ask, I get - and I get to keep for a week or four to try out. The freebies help, too.

 

Oh, and my bag is a Titleist bag 😄

I have before, but am currently at 12 clubs, bag and ball.

 

Although other brands have clubs as good if not possibly better in certain areas (matter of opinion), Titleist is probably the only brand I would go all in on.

Up until recently I had an all Titleist bag but have made a couple of changes 

 

JPX 919 tours have replaced my 718 CBs.  I kind of regret it, the 718s were great and I prefer their smaller more compact look at address.  Its very possible that I cave in and get fit for new irons in the new year! 

 

A Taylormade Sim has replaced my old 910 driver, I did try TS series but they weren't for me.

 

I've always felt a loyalty to Titleist after their rep helped me out with some clubs when I was just a kid working in a pro shop, it wasn't something he had to do and it meant a lot at the time.

I'm at 13 clubs right now.

 

I love Titleist and have since I was little. Titleist always meant quality to me. A brand to aspire to own. I also love script logos (Ben Hogan was another brand I loved).

 

While I love Titleist I don't play their products blindly. I give them the first shot at every spot in my bag but if I know I can find a better club from another company I will buy another brand. I've done that frequently with drivers, but the TS2 was too good to not use.

 

The club that's in my bag and not Titleist is a Toulon San Diego putter. Right now I think Toulon is making better putters than Scotty Cameron. I have not had a Scotty Cameron putter speak to me since the Studio Stainless line. I don't like inserts and I don't like the 3 cherry bombs so that leaves Scotty out in the cold for me.

 

My current bag:

 

TS2, 10.5*

917F2, 17.25*

816 H1, 21*

816 H1, 24*

718 AP1 6, 7, 8

718 AP2 8, 9, PW

Vokey SM7 50, 55

Vokey SM8 60

Toulon San Diego Putter

 

My bag isn't crazy expensive but I'd be crestfallen if it was stolen. I have pieced every club together with thought and testing and I'd be devastated to lose that.

My bag says “Titleist” down the side and in multiple places including the zipper tags 😃. My irons are T200s and my wedges are Vokey designs. Alas, my driver is a Taylor Made M6 and my fairway woods are Callaway X16 pro.

 

I putt with a custom fit EDEL putter. That puts me at 10 Titleist clubs and 4 non-Titleist clubs in my golf bag with a pocket filled with Pro V1 golf balls. 
 

I can’t find a driver to beat Taylor Made’s products and the Callaway woods are among the easiest to work the ball in both directions. My Titleist irons are wonderful through the entire set!

Always loved the intimidation factor of Titleist. When I was younger it seemed only those with game played Titleist. So I knew people who played all Titlesit hoping to gain a couple of strokes based on that... I always thought, simplistic yet the performance is great. Never been disappointed with a Titleist club purchase. They also have Voke and Scotty designing two of there most popular clubs soooo....

I have played Titlesit drivers many eons ago and loved them.  The current TSi line is money.  I do have an older newport 1 model that's been in my bag for many years.  I love the SC line of putters.  Titleist irons and Vokeys not so much.

I could do a full bag but then I’d need to revamp my hybrid/wood spot, driving iron and I love my hi toe but I am sure a vokey could take its place. I’ve had one in the past but I’m trying to be non biased with brands to play what will help me lower my scores the most.

I agree with the general notion of Titleist being one of the true benchmark brands in the golf industry.  It’s actually really incredible just the market share they have with the ProV ball  on tour after all these years.

 

I made the move to AP3 irons in 2019 and couldn’t be happier with them. More then forgiving enough with some offset but can still work it low and really high when needed. I really like the way they are built and hardly show much wear only slightly on the forged faces. You can tell these irons will last for years if well taken care of. For me kind of mid handicapper (about a 12-14hncp) with nice swing and aspirations and talent to become closer to a scratch player they have been  a perfect tool to allow me to get better and not feel like Im undergunned in any way but still allow we to get the ball in the air even on complete mis hits.  

 

I don’t have much experience with the woods or drivers for the past few years but will be very interested to try some of the newest offerings when I get a chance.

Nope. I’ve played Titleist Drivers and find Ping (410 LST) to be much better. I do play Titleist wedges and balls. I would like to try their irons, because I like the look. I don’t think there’s a huge difference in the top brand irons as there isn’t as much engineering in irons are there are in woods and hybrids. Still like the way Titleist irons look- I play Taylor Made Tour Preferred irons.

For the moment, I have the Titleist bug.... I have been using the 917f2, 915h, and 2 Vokey wedge setup for a while now, can't kick those out.  I was also recently fit for the TSi2 which I am still finding a groove with, so far loving it... I couldn't NOT have me some irons as well, so I sold some stuff to buy some stuff and have a brand new set of 718 CB in the bag.  Fantastic irons.  For the most part, Titleist has typically looked the best to my eye over the years with others giving chase, but there IS something about the brand that does it for me.  

 

Putter?  I have had a hard time falling in love with any Scotty and my Ping Anser Milled has been SO good.  I did buy a 2020 Fastback 1.5 but after one round, I am not really feeling it.  Not sure if I should go NP2, or just stick with the Ping.  Makes me laugh though, my $80 Ping is a much better putter for me than the $400 Scotty....

I like Titleist because I respect their two year product cycle and general reluctance to apply buzzwords and the "visible technology" schtick some OEMs overuse. 

 

That being said, I would never limit myself to a single OEM and my bag is pretty mixed.

 


I have always hated TM fanboys and actually really dislike the brand but for some reason a lot of their stuff is working well for me at the moment. I have a tour issue Callaway apex hybrid that is usually in the bag but I have the lefts at the moment so am testing a 5w which has been nice. My point of saying this is that even though my bag would say otherwise, I am a firm believer that it is difficult or nearly impossible to find the BEST club for every spot in the bag from one brand. Every single + HC I know who is not on staff has at least one off brand club. If you want to play your best golf I truly believe you need to open your mind to other brands. Unfortunately a full Titleist bag comes with the stigma of a vanity HC and unfortunately I’ve found that to be true many times.
