By season's end, I had completed my first full bag overhaul since 2009.

My ball, bag, and twelve of my fifteen clubs are Titleists.

The driver, the weaker lofted fairway metal, and the putter are three different other brands.

For all intents and purposes, though, it's pretty much a Titleist set right now.

I had switched my bag make up a couple times over the season but changed wedges due to a Black Friday sale. Got a 52 and 58 Jaws. They are great wedges especially since they had the grinds I wanted.

This wasn't intentional and just happened. I don't really have much allegiance and don't fault those of you who do; I *wholeheartedly* believe in the play-your-game-whatever-works-for-you concept.

This is my <current LOL!> breakdown:
TourEdge (driver)
Cobra (3W)
Callaway (SuperHybrid)
Titleist (hybrid)
Srixon (irons)
Cleveland (wedges)
Bettinardi (putter)

There is no right or wrong answer to this question, but out of curiosity, how many brands have you used or are using at one time?

I am at 3 currently, but not intentionally either way. 
 

TM - driver, 3 & 5

I have 4, or 3 if you group Callaway and Odyssey together. At one point I had only 1 brand. Titleist from Driver through putter. 

When my wife asked if I wanted to leave Maine and move to where she grew up, I couldn't say no to Pinehurst, NC. I honestly don't spend much money on golf equipment, but I'm constantly reading reviews in case I ever get ready to buy

I swing left handed and have been the State of Maine Left Hander's champion since 1997, the last year they held the tournament. I'm currently a 7.1 handicap. Trying to get lower, but my gut gets in the way.

I’m at 5 lol 

Srixon (driver)

Wilson staff (Utility)

Taylormade (irons)

Cleveland (wedges) 

Tear Drop (putter)

 

I used to play exclusively TM but then fell in love with Cleveland wedges. Come to find that there’s good and bad in every brand, and some just feel better in certain clubs to me than others. 

Just a dude who like to play golf, watch golf, talk golf.

So depending on the round or how badly the other clubs are behaving I use 3 very unconventional sets of irons

Primary: ERG V3

Secondary: Maltby TS-1

Nostalgia: Mizuno T-Zoid Pro II

Driver: Mizuno

3 wood and UDI: Cobra

Wedges: Maltby

Putter: Edel

So 5 I guess? 

🤷‍♂️

I've been a Cleveland Golf loyalist for over 20 years. The driver, irons, and wedges will get changed out every few years but the fairway woods, the old Launcher metalwoods with the small heads(circa 2005) are still in my bag as I can't find anything better in terms of feel and confidence. The putter on the other hand is the older Ping Anser 2 and that stays as well.

Callaway woods, hybrids and irons. Vokey wedge. Ping Answer putter.

I am out there for fun and sun. There might be a better club set that would by club go 5-20 yards farther and straighter, but my free time is spent playing golf. Fittings, practice, club switching, just seems like so much effort. Let's face it, a fitting is one moment in time. To really be effective, wouldn't you really need one a month for 2 or three months? Don't know about you, but every club has a new club period of awesome production and then the club realizes your return period is over. I guess if you have the money and are willing to spend it on club purchases all year...

Rather play 3-6 times a week. At 69, when I get shorter, I'm moving up. One guy in the group has already done this. If I was still rules bound and trying to be a club pro, maybe all the effort would be useful. 

Aim small, miss small.

Driver: Callaway Epic 9 degree, stiff (set at 10 degrees with the movable weight in the center}

FW: Callaway Epic 3,5, heaven wood w/ regular shaft (driver shaft in 3 wood, 3 wood shaft in 5 wood, 5 wood shaft in heaven wood, all three set at neutral plus 1 degree)

Hybrids: Callaway BB19 4,6,7 (4 set at neutral plus 1 degree and 6 and 7 set at neutral minus 1 degree for gapping purposes)

Irons: Callaway Rogue ST Max 8, 9, PW 

Wedges: Titleist Vokey SM6 50,54,58

Ball: Titleist Pro V1, 1X, Vice Pro Plus or anything I find that day and try out for the fun of it (I haven't bought balls with my own money in at least 10 years)

I guess I may have too few brands compared to the MGS average,  

I am right now Titleist, Haywood and TaylorMade.  I was mostly Titleist with a couple of TaylorMade wedges before. 

I am going to try some Mizuno, Haywood and Srixon irons and compare them to see if they are better than T200 set. Will also start looking closely at lighter stuff shafts and will get fitted for them.
