Cart & clubs branding

I play Taylor Made clubs woods and irons, is it odd to but a Callaway bag? Do most people buy bags that represent the clbs they play or do you even care? I'm in the market for a new bag and my local Costco just received new Callaway cart bags and they are really inexpensive. I was looking for Taylor Made bags, but they don't have anything I like for my price range. I also like an Ogio bag, but this Callaway looks really nice for $100! Looking for opnions

I'm sure some people prefer to have everything match, I think you should pick the gear that works best for you.  I didn't like the Callaway bags as much as Nikes stand bag and Titleists cart bag, so I went with what I liked even though most of my clubs are Callaway.

Theres absolutely no reason why you shouldnt buy a Callaway bag if you like it.  A lot of people like to have everything match, but honestly, who cares?

Its not as if you are being paid to have a certain company's logos on your stuff.

I have trouble carrying a branded bag or wearing a branded hat, if I don't have at least one club from that manufacturer I wouldn't do it. I know it is silly. I use sun mountain bags so I can ho any club.

Sun Mountain and OGIO if you're looking for neutral bag...Both are extremely great, and you can find them for $100 on ebay and other places. That's my suggestion.

Normally I feel the same way, but really does it matter...maybe I can play Callaway balls! In Canada everything is a little more expensive, so finding inexpensive bags that can last longer then 1 season is hard. Not sure yet...

While I'm sure there are some that would disagree I personally couldn't care less if my stuff matches or not...

I have a Taylor Made cap and towel but do not game their clubs (hat was a present and the towel was the cheapest one in the pro shop when I forgot to bring one!)

I also have a Pro V1 cap but generally play Bridgestone or Wilson Staff balls, bought because it was 1/2 price, red and flexi fit...

Even so far as my clubs go it doesn't worry me, I play a 51 degree vokey and a 56 degree cleveland.. both were bought on sale when I wanted a change....

If the bag is cheap and you like it why not!

OK, so I bit the bullet and bought it. I figure I'd take it home, put my clubs in it, try on my new push cart and if everything "fits" well I'll keep it. Costco has a 30 day refund policy.

Here it is. It's really a nice bag, especially for the money. I guess I will look at it as a golf bag made by Callaway, not a club maker's golf bag. A small nuance, but I can live with it.

I know a lot of people who have Ping bags even though they dont own a single Ping club. Apparently Ping bags are THAT good.

Most of my clubs are Callaway, but I also carry a TM Raylor, a Ping putter and three Cleveland wedges.

My bag is SunMountain, and I would probably replace it with Sun Mountain unless Callaway sponsors me. (Any Callaway reps out there.... make me an offer...)

    • Played yesterday at SGCC. 36-40-76 -2 birdies and 2 doubles (ugh), one double was a 3-putt
    • I am going to try the TP version of my old club.  It has a 390CC head.  It was only 30 bucks so I figured it couldn't hurt to see if it helps a little on the forgiveness.  I guess the game is just passing me by...I can't see myself using those gigantic drivers.  The thing I noticed is that with the smaller head, that I am more focused on hitting the sweet spot.  With the giant club it just seems like you hit it anywhere on the face.  Am I correct in thinking that a "sweet spot" is not any larger on the bigger heads?  Is it just that on off center hits there is better chance of hitting it straight?  
    • I'll keep this on the short side because some random person's Member Swing thread isn't really the place for this kind of discussion… By most I'll clarify: the vast, vast majority. I'm not talking about 53% here. That doesn't mean you were doing it right or most efficiently. You may very well have been capable of making the change - and making it more quickly - with a ball if you'd done it differently. Sounds slow. Not for everyone, but for a good chunk of people. That's not what I advocate in the above linked post, either. Generally speaking, here's what I see: You tell people to fix the move without a golf ball. They work and work and film and record, and eventually, they've got a great practice swing. You say "great, now do that with a ball" and they almost immediately and completely revert to their old swing. Simply put, what I recommend to people is: A rehearsal swing or two. Often these too are shorter, slower, simpler swings. A shorter, slower, simpler swing focusing just on the "piece" while hitting a ball. As you become proficient, the swing gets less short, less slow, and closer to the full swing. Practice at the edge of your ability, but do it with a ball. The approach there blends no-ball practice (the first bullet) but immediately ties it to a motion you make with a golf ball. If you're shanking, topping, etc. the ball too much, you're not doing it slowly, "shortly," or simply enough.
    • Shot a 41 in my match play League.  Opponent was giving me 3 strokes.  I won the match 5 to 4. 5 pars 3 bogeys 1 double Good:  Drove 6/7 fairways and the only one that I missed was by about a foot.  Hit some very good approach shots.  I had 4 birdie putts ranging from 6-25 feet.  Alas, i made none. Bad: Other than duffing 2 shots on the first hole (an easy par 5) i played pretty solid.    
    • This entirely depends on where you play. I play courses that usually have three groups and a couple of singles out per side, and I would say no, but then I get to an urban course, like Long. Island, or South Florida, and it's anger management time.  I like to watch my friends's shots, and compliment their successes, I take a couple practice swings if I am in an uneven lie, or whatever, but I am not going to spend time searching for extra balls while walking between shots, or sit and BS at the tee before shooting. For some reason I am always ready to hit first, honors or no, and I just don't get why people take so long there. As long as I can do the things I enjoy, like watching my shots and my friends shots, and take due care taking my shots and putting, I don't feel rushed, but three hours for a foursome means you have four serious golfers. My golfing is more social so that is unlikely to happen. I play with one guy who takes pace seriously, and we do fine.  If we want to pick up the pace of a group, we play best ball. Maybe the conversations on the tee are because that's where everybody gathers together for the next hole and people like to talk. I like to play golf.
