Suprised that Adams never made the list. Their fairway woods revolutionized the game.

Ah, the Tight Lies....

Hated that club. The only club I've ever broken on purpose. (I was like 13, my temper has since subsided... but I stand by my actions)

Cleveland VAS.... ugliest club ever made by an OEM.

You are correct sir, but it's outside of the 15 year mark and has a US Open win to it's credit. So it's got that going for it.

Can't say I disagree, but we're talking about names. Check these out. Random playing partner's bag late last year. I [i]had[/i] to snap some pics.

I have actually seen and held an acrylic driver at my old course in 2008. It was a WILSON. Weird look, weirder feeling, didn't dare hit a ball with it. Must have been in the transition from wood to metal era. Thank you for sharing.

Nike Sumo? Ping have had some weird putter names. You could add Yes! to that with naming all their putters after girls. I think Burner needs to be on the list, even people outside of golf know of the Burner series. Of course there non memorable ones that in the right context, become memorable ie: "Natalie Gulbis has a Rac... set of irons"

Weak? Well I tried haha.

Cleveland Mashie is a great one

Like the list, surprised that the Taylor Made Burner bubble didnt make it though. Only thing i remember about Tin Cup!

Have to agree with the burner bubble. One of the most memorable things about golf when i was in 7th grade along with the Ping Eye 2s. man...brings me back. Also Wilson 8802.

What about the "Tour Edge Exotics XCG V"

Yeah I'm only joking - I've had one in the bag for over a year and still had to look up the name.

I'd suggest "Burner" was a decently marketed name.
