Tough one, because I think most all companies have their specialty, and most all do have quality products. I probably would have to stick with Nike for now. Their drivers, fairway woods, and irons have been solid for me, as has the ONE Tour D ball (though I switch up balls semi-often to try new stuff - cant wait to try the Penta!).

I haven't played any Nike wedges or putters, but I've got everything else covered and have had good experience with them. That's not to say I haven't had good experiences with equipment from other manufacturers too...

This is a tough question. I'm a big nike fan but don't like their putters or balls. I'm a big taylormade fan but not sure about their putters. So it would be a toss up between Ping and Titleist, both make great woods, hybrids, irons, wedges and putters. Ping would edge it I think, then I could use the Srixon z-star ball! Now why the hell don't I have any ping clubs in my bag? lol

I'd go with Ping, because I love the G-10 and 15 series. However, since they cost so much money and I can't afford them, my affordable brand to go with would most definitely be Nickent.

Sumitomo, easy. Driver would be Cleveland HiBore 8°, Fairway Wood would be HiBore 15°, Irons are Srixon i701 tour 2-PW, Wedges are CG-12 54° and 60°, and putter is Never Compromise 33" NCX-RAY TAU. Ball would be Z Star X.

while i love pings... if i had the game i'd go with mizuno.

my mp fli-hi 3 iron is absolutely amazing. i can't imagine what it would be like to have a whole set of mizuno irons...

ive heard so-so reviews about their woods... but i could probably get used to them quickly.... if only they made balls.....

I'm pretty sure I'd have to go with Adams, even though they are definitely not a top-tier company. I love my (relatively old) driver, 3 wood, and hybrid. I know they make great irons too.

Adams is not top tier? Have you seen their pro models? The Pro MB Black are some of the best blades out there, and thier Insight woods (which I play) are just phenominal.

umm... hello NIKE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

In the past i would have to say Titleist

But the new stuff Nike is putting out and knowing how much money they spend in the R & D department they are the best i believe.

I cant wait for the Nike Method putter to come out.

    • Replace the grip if you want, but a new putter won't matter (unless it makes you practice more).  There's some great putting and short game drills in chapter 9 of Every Shot Counts by Mark Broadie. His drills are also games, with scoring that measures objective skill level.   Also recommend The Putting Bible by Dave Pelz. 
    • A strange round of golf yesterday. I played from the red tees (plays just 5350 yards).  My ballstriking is not very crisp these days, but hopefully I can sort that out soon. It was a round of two halves, as usual. Front 9:  Could not hit fairways or greens at all on the front, 2/9 greens and 2/6 fairways, but still shot +2 on the front. That includes 2 shots in the bunker on hole 4, a horrible misshit that lead to a double on hole 7, topped my driver 80 yards twice and the only 2 fairways I hit were with short irons in hand. 11 putts on the front 9 says a lot about that tretch of holes.  Birdie on both par 5s on the front is allways nice.  37 shots, par 35 Back 9:  A little better ballstriking even though I hit 2 shots OB, leading to a tripple and a double, 4/7 fairway and 4/9 greens. The short game was more off here and I left a couple of chips a bit short. 17 putts is not as good as I'd like it to be. 1 threeputt, but I think I would threeputt from there more often than not, as it was a 60 foot downhill putt with a lot of break where I gave it a little to much speed. Birdie on hole 15 (short par 3) and on hole 17 was nice, and I missed a short birdieputt on, the tough par 3, 11. Had 165 yards in after a decent drive on the par 5 18, but managed the top the approach and miss the green from 90 yards after that and walk off with a bogey after also missing the 5 foot par save. 44 shots, par 37.  81 shots is not bad, but I make to many misstakes from tee, making golf a lot harder than it needs to be. I hit driver on 8 holes: 1 fairway hit (265 yards), 1 OB, hit short and low slices mostly except from the two topped 80 yard ones, avg. 240 yards today. My drives are usually 270-320 yards depending on wind and course, so my driving is not where it should be. My short game is not perfect, but it's certainly better than my hcp right now.  Playing a round at an away course today. There is a curse hanging over that course that needs to be lifted. Good luck me 😉  
    • Our range closes early on Sunday to do a “clean pick”, and reopens at 11:30 on Monday. It is mowed early Monday. The course is closed until noon on Monday’s.
    • If you do get a new putter, get fit first. Try a bunch out at a golf store and see what kinds you like first. Then find a good fitter to get your numbers down, length, lie, loft and overall weight. Heavier putters can help with distance control for some folks. Also, a different grip size may help even if n your current putter. For distance control, having a consistent rhythm helps. In my visit to Erie, Erik had me work on increasing my rhythm a bit because I was a bit too slow and it varied. I have a tempo app on my phone and set my rhythm to 2/4 time at 72 bpm. When I practice putting, I first work on my rhythm for short, medium and long putts. Then I work on read and start line. This drill can help too.  
    • Day 68, August 1, 2021:  My backswing is still too long. I’m trying to get it shorter I look at it on film and it’s way too long, did some pitching length swing length feeling swings, so it’s probably half to three quarter length backswing.
