PXG. Obnoxious marketing and hideous looking clubs. 

Wilson, probably. The whole Fat Shaft thing was an affront to my delicate sensibilities. 

PXG. Ugly clubs and even worse commercials.

None. I'll play any brand that works for me.

Right with you there.  I've been playing golf for 32 years and I've tried or gamed everything under the sun during that time from persimmon heads, steel heads, alien wedge, driver heads that would have materials that cracked the face purposely every time it was used, bubble shafts, Ping oversized irons, etc.  These days, anything that gives me the best numbers on trackman goes in the bag.

Titleist for trying to pretend they didn't make big, game improvement clubs and the 822OS might be the worst irons I ever hit.

Currently, I'd have to say TaylorMade.  I've tried there clubs and they just didn't work for me.

 

I'm the same on their irons. I've had a few TM woods over the years.  The R5 was oner of my top 5 drivers of all time.  But I've never got along with any of their irons.

Callaway. I know they make some good clubs and a bunch of guys on tour use them. 
 

However to me they have just always been these oversized monstrosities that are meant for 25 handicaps. All the ridiculous graphics and colors on their clubs don’t help either. And for some reason I can’t explain I also hate their logo. 

 You mean something like this? LOL

I find ping irons soles too thick mostly... taylormade is ok but sound and feel it a little off to me sometimes... i played with titleist on vacation as a rental. The driver was ok a little odd feeling. The irons were terrible to my game the t300. I think titleist may be ok to me but no real intrest at all in looking into them. Callaway and mizuno is where in in love.

TM - I haven't had a club from them in my bag since the RBZ three wood.  I don't hate their stuff but I think I subconsciously hold a grudge because they took away Adams.  Still have two sets of MB2's I play from time to time. 

 

Also, Cameron putters.  I have one that I got in a trade.  Inspired by David Duval platinum.  Never use it.  Their old stuff was great.  Some of their new mallets are ok i guess but everything else, outside of the CT stuff, just seems like really overpriced crap to me.   I'm an asner style putter guy and would never buy a new scotty cameron newport.  A circle T for a normal price, I might be swayed.

From an equipment/function standpoint, I’d go with Ping. I don’t like the way the majority of their irons look (shape) and they all feel hard to me. Though, I know they perform. 
 

From a business model standpoint it’s Callaway. I think they are now what Taylormade was a few years back in that they oversell everything. I also am annoyed with what they’ve done with Ogio. I was an Ogio guy and their changes pushed me to Sun Mountain.

      Please put any questions or comments here. 
       
      This week, the PGA Tour is at TPC San Antonio on the Oaks Course for the Valero Texas Open. GolfWRX was on-site Tuesday to catch a glimpse into the bags of some of the world’s top golfers.
       
      The field of 144 is getting ready to battle starting Thursday for the $7.7 million purse, with $1.386 million going to the winner. The tournament is also the last event where players can qualify for The Masters, just like Canadian Corey Conners did last year.
