Are there certain brands on certain clubs you won't ever leave?

That to me is Cleveland wedges. That was my first adult set of wedges (dads old clubs) and they always treated me really well.

 

I struggle with the putter, but I was at my best putting back when I had an odyssey mallet. Recently just went back to odyssey with the Rossie S and have no plans of it leaving the bag.

 

What about you?

Yup. I’ve found I play best with Ping irons, (3 of my last four sets have been Ping) and my putting is far better with a Scotty averaging 28/29 putts per round. Whenever I try anything else my average putts shoot up to 33-35 a round. 
 

Other than that, the remaining slots in my bag are up for grabs with any brand whenever I change. Except for callaway, which I can’t hit and have proven even in blind testing I cannot hit a callaway club. It’s a me issue.

Probably Vokey, I just don’t think the others look as good and have as many options. But I am curious to try the TM Tiger wedges.

 

Otherwise I would be happy to play whatever works and looks best for the rest.

I've really gotten to like the Callaway Jaws line of wedges. My last few replacements have maintained that brand.

As long as my irons are a forged CB, I'm good to go.

Doesn't matter will use whatever works best for me but I have a feeling Ping woods will work well for me over others based on my last fitting. But next time if anything else works better that will go in.

why not Callaway wedges since Roger Cleveland’s been designing their wedges for over a decade?  
 

to answer your question tho, I’ve been sticking with callaway fairways and wedges but have used multiple brands for other clubs.

Mavrik SZ 15° | Atmos TS Blue 7s

I have the putter I got for my 18th birthday in '89, but it isn't currently in my bag. By the end of the year I will have an almost entirely Haywood bag, but see how long that lasts. 🤣

There's some brands that i am loyal to with woods , for example i will always defer to Callaway and Ping --It's something about the head shapes that is very appealing to me

 

But in general i have zero loyalty. If something works better or i like better--I'm gonna go with it

The reason I'm a golfer is because of my father, and I have a lot of fond memories of him excitedly getting the new Callaway Big Bertha... and then the Great Big Bertha... and then the Biggest Big Bertha... and so on. He's always loved Callaway clubs and for that reason alone, there will always be a place in my bag for a Callaway club.

TM drivers for the head shape.  Mizuno irons.  If Adams were still around I would probably still be playing them. Love those CMB’s.  3 wood and hybrid I’m not picky about. I’m picky about wedge shape, not brand.

They're fun to break out for the occasional round, but my gamers and my first love are the forged CB's.  I just reshafted my MP 30's with DG AMT X100, so maybe the lighter weight in the long irons will help me get the TM 200 4 and 5 irons out of my main bag.  And the Titleist fairways are actually in the main bag at the moment.  I actually like them better than the newer stuff, I do believe.

I have a few OEM’s that I turn to initially by club type but they are simply a starting point. If I find something outside of those, I am open to new ones. If I didn’t, I would never have tried PXG in the first place.

LTD 10.5* (Kiyoshi Black 65-05, or Motore X F1 6S), or EFSZ 9* (Rome 588 Wildeye S)

TS2 15* (Tensei AV Blue 65R)

0317X Gen2 19* (MMT 80S), or F7 2/3H (Pro 75h S)

0311 Gen1 4-5 & 0311P Gen2 6-PW (SteelFiber i95S)

RTX ZipCore 52* (TI Spinner), or CBX2 52* (Modus3 105)

OG PM Grind 58* (KBS); HiToe 64* (HiRev 2.0)
SC Red X2, or WHP 7CS

Tour B X, Z-Star XV, TP5x, Left Dash, CSX LS, or Volvik S4

- Backups: G400LST 10*; M3 440 9*; i210; TW-X; IC-601; P-760; 716 T-MB; OG 0211; Lucky 777CS.
