I normally carry between 4 and 5 brands depending upon where i play.  

 

My driver is a Ping, my 3 wood is a Cobra. I have a Sub70 2 iron.  My hybrids are Callaway.  I have 2 sets of irons (Sub70 & Callaway Rogues). My wedges are Cleveland RTX-4s.  I have 3 putters.. (Scotty Cameron, Bettinardi, and a Cleveland)

On any given day the make-up of the bag could be different.

Over the last 20 years my bag has evolved, I do tend to buy clubs it groups

  1. Woods and Hybrids are usually the same brand and model
    1. Current set are Callaway Epic but moving to Mavrik
  2. Irons used to be 3i - PW but now 5i to AW are all the same
    1. Current model is Srixon Z565
  3. Wedges usually 3 => 52', 56' and 60' and are all customised to the same length as my PW
    1. Current model are Cleveland RTX 3.0
  4. Putter, changes when I lose confidence I currently have 4 (after a clear out)
    1. Current model is Ping Heppler Floki

 

My history is pretty similar

  1. 2005 King Cobra Woods and Wedges and Mizuno irons
  2. 2010 Taylor Made woods and Irons, Titleist wedges
  3. 2015 Titleist everything except putter

Three for me, I’m a traditionalist. One brand of woods, one brand of irons (and hybrid) and one brand of putter. A different brand of wedges (vs 3 thru PW) wouldn’t bother me, which would take me to four brands. Otherwise mixing iron brands or mixing wood brands isn’t something I’d choose, but just my preference. My clubs are better than I am, always have been, more brands won’t help me score better. Even if most are paid to do it, most pros manage to win with just a few brands, and usually even change brands without problems when the endorsement money dictates.

Pre #CCC4 I was at 4

TM driver,
PING FW,
Titleist hybrid, irons, wedges
Evnroll putter

post #CCC4: 2.

Cobra everything.
Evnroll Putter.

Until something beats it, or breaks it will stay that way. I’m intrigued by the PING g425 woods/hybrids because I’m always intrigued by PING. Otherwise I’ll pay attention to my Arccos stats and see where I’m losing the most strokes and see if it’s something I can address via equipment adjustment or change.

Bonus: I’ve expended a brand Via ball. Previously I always used a Pro V1x. Next season I’ll be using a Bridgestone or Snell. Both perform as good for me, hopefully I’ll get a little more testing in before it becomes time to buy.

In spirit now I’d be a 5. After a few fittings I see no issues with mixing them up purely based on feel and performance. Custom headcovers solve the whole bag matching issue and as long as the lofts are right and gapping is good I don’t care if I end up with a 5-iron and Hybrid that are the same “loft”. I’ve had this before but the yardage gap was right.

I am a loyalist who is lost.  But... it is going to take me a  while to get there for a full one brand bag.  Eventually everything will be Titleist... or maybe by the time I decide that I will move back to Taylormade... or pull a Brooksy.... who knows.  Fairly indecisive I’d say.  Put me in the “who knows” category.

current:

PXG Driver 

TM 3 wood

TM Hybrid

Titleist Irons

Vokey PW (on its way)

PING 52 and 58

PING putter

Taylormade bag

ProV1/AVX ball

 

just writing all that out made me feel nauseous.

the real interesting play is multiple wedge brands.  I'm not sure I could do that! haha

Right?!  That's one part of the bag where I'd need some consistency.  I'm going to upgrade to SM8's (probably) soon and while there is a lot less wear on my 54 than my 58, both of them are being replaced.  In other words, I won't mix an SM8 with an SM7 (silly I know), can't imagine different OEMs altogether.

Not saying there is necessarily anything wrong with it if it works for you, I'm just too particular probably.

I did read something on if you play GI or Super GI irons, but still like a traditional wedge, using something like a CB wedge in the PW/GW area could be a good way to blend forgiveness down the line.  I guess I could see myself doing that, but they would need to visually blend well.  And even then I probably wouldn't like it. 😂

Well, fortunately I don’t have the Vokey yet... because I am sure the PING’s will be gone quickly.  It was an experiment with the Glides.  Great wedges, huge footprint.

Trust me... the sight of them now is making me browse the wedge pages of the online retailers.  If you know me at all, I think the wedge is the best club in the bag.  So to have multiple different kinds drives me nuts.

I used to be well diversified! Titleist/Cleveland driver, Ping/Nike Woods, TM/Off-Brand Irons, Cleveland/Ping/Cobra wedges, etc... But getting fitted over the past couple years has lead me to my current setup and I'm quite pleased. One thing that won't change for awhile is my putter. I've tried about 4-5 different ones at this stage and ole trusty Ping Anser 2 keeps finding it's way back into my bag!

Well let's see, Mizuno Driver (could be changing for 2021), Callaway 3 wood, Cobra 5 wood (likely a change for 2021), Ping irons, Mizuno and Honma wedges, and Nickent putter (probable change for 2021).

So 6 brands right now, a guarantee of at least 4 brands going forward depending on fitting and potential club changes. Weirdly could get to 7 which would be wild!
