Your Golf Equipment Brand History?


Recommended Posts

driver/ woods- Palmer precision wood woods- Callaway BB, and then starting about every 7-8 years in 2003- switched out driver and fairway woods with whatever was on the Callaway preowned site, currently rocking the first Epic model (driver, 3,5,7)

irons-  Wilson, Ping (had those eye 2's for a long time), Callaway x-12, Callaway steelhead

Hybrid- Callaway

Wedges- Wilson r 90 (back when we only had one wedge, remember that?),  Vokey

Putters- Ping, Callaway- bounce back and forth, currently Ping Answer

Not sure when I will change again, though hit a friends MB the other day and loved it


Anyone else miss the Rifle shafts from 2001 or 2?

First of all this is awesome idea. 


Driver: tm burner 9' bubble shaft, calloway steelhead plus 7.5',6',5.5' used the v2 shaft untill last season then pxg 0811x gen 2 9' smoke yellow.

Woods: olimar tri metal 3 wood 13', Nike 3 and 5 CPR, vapor, sq2 now cobra speed zone 4w 7w atmos black shaft.

Hybrid: cobra baffler 4h 

Irons ping eye2 bc 3-9, Nike combo sets 3-9 from 2000-2004 each new model, back to eye2's now new level 6-pw steelfiber.

Wedges: Cleveland tour action 588's 50,55,60,64 now vokey sm8 black 50,54,58 tensi red. 

Putter: McGregor bullseye knock off, ping answer2, ping answer bc, oddesy two ball, back to ping answer bc, oddesy triple track sven, back to ping answer bc.

Nike clubs was part of college years team sponsorship so had to play them in irons and wood, I was allowed to keep using my driver wedges and putter due to poor performance off tee and around green using Nike stuff.

Goldsmith was my introduction set, worked there and got the fever. Built all of my first clubs except wedges and putter.

Moved into Taylormade woods and Titleist irons. Finally put a full Titleist set together and never really looked back. albeit two Cleveland wedges and a Ping putter.

Golf is challenging, R U doing the work...or hoping 4 different outcomes?

Titleist C16 irons

Vokey 55°, 60° wedges

Cleveland 50°, 46° wedges

Ping Sigma2 41 inch putter

Titleist D2 driver, 904 / 908 3 and 5 wood

I can’t possibly do this. All I can say is my journey started with Ram Bob Rosburg driver and three wood, a 3/5/7/9 iron of who knows what brand, no idea of the putter I started with, then my first set I got was at HS graduation. Golfsmith woods 1/3/5, and Dunlop Diamond Max irons. After that it’s all a blur….

I'm thinking approximately the same thing.  I'm going to give it a shot, though.

I've gone through a LOT of clubs, and its worse when you consider I've only been playing since fall, 1998.  I will probably forget several somethings.  

Attempting chronological order...

Driver: Dunlop, Goldwin, KZG, Integra, Dynacraft, Golfsmith, Precept, SMT, Louisville Golf, MacGregor, Ram, Wilson, Powerbilt, Bang, Zero Tolerance, TaylorMade, Tour Edge, Bridgestone, Nike, Maltby, Cobra, Ping, Orlimar

Fairways: Dunlop, Tour Edge, Orlimar, Peerless, Snake Eyes, Precept, Mizuno, TaylorMade, Ram, Wilson, Cobra

Hybrid: relatively easy, lol.  TaylorMade, Cobra.  If utilities count here, add Bridgestone

Irons: oh boy...  Dunlop, Goldwin, Tour Edge, Ram, MacGregor, Golfsmith, Dynacraft, Wilson, Palmer, Powerbilt, Precept, Mizuno, Wood Bros, Purefit, TaylorMade, Ping, Tommy Armour, Pinhawk

Wedges: Dunlop, Ram, Wilson, Cleveland, Snake Eyes, Dynacraft, Palmer, Wilson, Zero Tolerance, Mizuno, Maltby

Putter: Dunlop, Ram, Wilson, Spalding, Snake Eyes, Dynacraft, Cleveland, Ping, Geo Low, Mizuno, Yes, Tad Moore

I can't mention models or even individual sets, we'd be here forever.  I've owned three sets of Precept Tour Premiums and three sets of Ram FX Nickel blades, as a couple sad examples...  🙄

Now, if I could choose 1 single club from the stash, that I wish I had never swapped, that would be the Adams Superfast 12LS. Best drives ever!

Luckily, I didn't sell it. It's still somewhere at my folk's place.

Going all the way back to the persimmon and laminated woods of the 70's.......

Woods were Hogan, Wilson Staff and my favorite driver of that era a Powerbilt Citation.  Then moved on to making my own driver & fairways from Maltby & Golfsmith then a Ping G10 now  Ping G410 & Golfsmith hybrids.  

Irons were WIlson Staff to Palmer Standards to Golfsmith Tour Cavity Forged to the current gamers Mizuno JPX 900 Forged.

A lot of different wedges until settling on Cleveland 588's about 25 years ago.

Putters.....waaay too many to remember but fav's were Bullseye wide flange, ping anser & now the Ping Heppler Fetch,

Started playing in 2006 with a full set of Wilson Pro Staff multi-metal. Then …

Driver – TaylorMade R7 Quad, Cleveland Hi-Bore XL, Ping G410 Plus

Woods – TaylorMade R7 steelhead, Ping G410

Hybrids – TaylorMade Rescue Dual, Ping G410

Irons – Mizuno MX-23, Mizuno JPX 900

Wedges – Mizuno MP R series, T series, Cleveland CBX 2

Putter – Odyssey White Hot Rossi, Ping Karsten Series


I can see that I might come off as brand loyal, and maybe I am. As a left-hander, I can’t really test all the clubs I’d like, so I started out by buying what was available and stick to whoever is showin’ the love.

This a fun thread and certainly brings back quite a few nostalgic memories.

Won’t run through every club, but two of my fav iron sets I’ve owned were the Mizuno T-Zoids and Titleist 962Bs ... regret parting with both. 

For driver it’ll be the Titleist 975J and the game changing Taylormade R7 were two personal favs. 

Will always have a soft spot for Precept golf balls during amateur/youth golfing days.
