Re: equipment sponsorsLet me put it this way, if it was all about the equipment, why would anyone need a sponsorship?
Most of these guys have plenty of money, they could buy whatever they wanted. Spending a few thousand a year on equipment wouldn't be much after making millions from using them.
That's not to say that they probably like some more than others. If you ever watch them in person, you find out very quickly that these guys could play with anything you give them. They could mix up a set from the local pro shop, have a quick practice session and break par pretty easily. If I had to put a number on it, I would say for most guys it is 90% money, 10% equipment.
