I would go with Titleist, even if it wasn't with all their new stuff. I'm still using a set of DCI 962 which are from the late 90's..... But if you're talking about filling your bag with one br

Id probably go with Titleist.  They arent the best in any category, but they are solid in pretty much everything that they make.  Honestly though, Id never go with all 1 brand.  No 1 brand is the best at everything and you would be selling yourself short by limiting yourself to any 1 brand.

Callaway right now but if I ever got good enough for players irons I'd probably switch to Titleist or Mizuno.  I'm still wondering if I made the right choice going with the Diablo Edges instead of the JPX-800.

Oddly enough, every single club (but an ugly Ping i10 iron) in my bag is Titleist.



Why is that odd? You're a Titleist fanboy. No shame in that. I'd call that setup a fanboy bag, or fanbag.

All my Cleveland fanbag is missing is a decent driver. I tried to like them, but can't do it (using either a PING G10 or a Callaway).

I wouldn't really call myself a Titleist fanboy. The first Titleist clubs I got were my irons, and this was because Titleist had the only fitting cart in my town where I could get fit for left handed clubs. My Vokeys came as a result of me buying the irons. The fitter told me to play nothing other than Vokeys, and I'm happy I followed his advice.

In regards to woods, I tried every brand that had a demo day at our club. The first one to do so in 2010 was Titleist, I needed new clubs due to my shafts being weaker than regular rather than the stiff I need.

With regards to the ProV1x, I've tried every premium ball in the market. I feel like I have the best control with this one. Buying a Titleist bag was a decision made based on all the clubs that I had. It came along with the irons and wedges and it I like for things to be in place and match, so Titleist was the obvious choice.

I have Footjoy shoes because they were the only ones I could try in the area. My putter was a gift I didn't expect, I would have happily continued to putt with my Odyssey.

So no, I'm not a Titleist fanboy. I like the way their clubs perform, that's all.

If I had purchased a TaylorMade bag in late 2009 (which I was going to do), I'd probably still have the same exact set-up. Or maybe I would have looked for a fitting possibility with TaylorMade.

My clubs are all Titleist because it's the way it worked out. Not because I'm a fanboy. I don't worship their products. I know that there are clubs in the market that outperform mine. Seeing as I'm 17 and don't want my dad to spend his money on buying new sticks every month, I found something that worked decently for me, and 13 of my clubs are made by Titleist.

Titleist for sure. 1. Their forged irons are flawless. 2. Their drivers and woods are now adjustable which allows you to fit yourself. 3. Vokey wedges are easily the best wedges. 4. Scotty cameron putters are crafted amazingly and they have great balance.

I know you wish you'd saved up for a Titleist hybrid instead of buying that PING. My second bag (in my sig) is all Cleveland except for the driver and 3-wood (my Cleveland Launcher 3-wood is in my main bag with my TA1s) and I seriously considered a Cleveland carry bag. I like a lot of their stuff and have no problem carrying a bag with their name on it. I like Sun Mountain bags more though.


I wasn't using the term in a derogatory manner - I mean, it's not like you're this guy  . . .

I guess I just dont see whats wrong with being a so-called "fan boy" for a brand.  I play everything TaylorMade except for my Scotty.  I have also debated switching out my TM wedges for Vokey's a couple times but haven't pulled the trigger on that.  Every TM club I have hit, I liked.  I have previously owned Nike drivers and woods and Callaway drivers, irons and wedges as well.  Im not playing TM because of their looks or because of their popularity.  Overall they feel great to me and I have yet to be disappointed with a purchase from them.

I've never owned one, but I've seen a few in shops and on ebay. Some designed by guys named Mills, Cameron, and Bettinardi.

I have everything Callaway, from the Ft-IQ driver down to the gap wedge.  I play Callaway balls, and even have a Callaway staff bag.  I, however, will not part with my Scotty Cameron putter!

However i don't like their latest wedges so if i can co back to

If I had to go with one brand it likely would be Ping or Titleist.  They seem to be 2 of the few that haven't gone crazy long and light with the drivers and super strong with the iron lofts.  Although as I customize pretty much every club I get I could probably get the feel I like out of anyone's clubs.

I would say titleist but, Nike has came so far recently.  I now play their irons and driver and could see myself using the rest if I had to be with one OEM

    • One of the things I have noticed about really good Youtube channels - let alone excellent films, is exactly this. There might be a time lapse that would take hours to video, but it is on screen for perhaps less than two seconds. But it gives the presentation quality. Look at films with incredible special effects and costumes/props - Lord of the Rings, for example. Years and years go into making things like a belt that a camera may never even focus on, or be a hundred metres a way, but the film wouldn't work without them.The total is greater than the sum of its parts. The flip side of this, of course, is that a prop that takes 5 minutes to make and looks like crap it is noticeably crap even if it is on screen for half a second, like a poorly photoshopped "family portrait" or newspaper "front page" with a stuck on headline on paper not even close to the colour of the newspaper. The devil is in the detail and tiny things connect to make the big picture. A bit like golf, perhaps.
    • I’d rather have it shut than open. I can find a swing where it’s more shut than that. Open doesn’t work for me, the extended lead wrist gets me steep and I shallow late, leave the face too open (or shank) going to A7. The last 3 instructors I’ve worked with have told me to bow the lead wrist at 4 more and I’ll get away from that and get steep.  When I try and do that my arms come off my chest and path goes too out to in. When I feel like I drop the club behind me at A4 my arms will go out towards the ball pretty good I think, like in the second swing, at A5 my hands bisect the torso. 
    • My 2 cents is that if you have to add more than 1.5" or so, you are really in need of new shafts. As far as "orange dot length" is concerned, I always thought that the dot color only denoted lie angle, not length. For example, if I were to order Pings, I would want blue dot (1" upright) at standard length (I fall on the short end of standard range). I just came across an old post on here that give a good Ping chart. Don't comment in there unless it is really pertinent though, as it is quite an old thread.

    • Late to post, but... I managed a par on the 18th on Sunday.  Not a birdie, but now I've birdied or parred every hole on the course! 🙂  👍
