    Looks like I've just copied you except for Ping putters.
    Game improvement - I'd agree with Ping / Taylormade have made a few as well

    Balls - Titleist / Taylormade

    Re: Brands that come to mind

    Interesting thread, i'll try and do it the other way round:

    Taylormade - Drivers
    Callaway - generically ok at everything
    Ping/Titleist - irons for better players/low handicappers
    Mizuno - irons for the connoisseur
    Cleveland/Vokey - wedges
    Odyssey/Scotty Cameron - putters
    Dunlop - cheap balls and clubs for hackers (i still use a few )
    Hacking it around the midlands :S

    Re: Brands that come to mind

    Funny peoples different views on clubs

    Ping I've always seen as game improvement

    Not much mention of Wilson staff! They used to be huge

    I associate Nike more with clothing. Like the almost collarless ones they have Fleetwood, Rory, Koepka etc wearing. Never paid much attention to their clubs. I tried out the Covert 2.0 driver when I got my current Taylor Made one and it wasn't a patch on the TM. Occasionally out on the course I find a Nike ball and then wonder if it's any good since I have no idea how their balls compare to others really.
    • TaylorMade R11-S (12°)
    • Adams Speedline Fast 12 5 wood (17°)
    • Benross HTX 3 hybrid (20°)
    • Callaway Steelhead XR irons 5-PW
    • Cleveland RTX-3 (50°)
    • Cleveland RTX Rotex 2.0 (56°)
    • Dunlop Wedge (60°)
    • Odyssey Works 1W putter
    • DX2/Optix

    I have played Nike balls once was alright

    Never owned or been tempted with any Nike clubs tho! Which surely during tigers peak and Rory in recent years you think would draw me to the clubs

    True though... Nike never comes into my mind for clubs, though were quite popular when Rory moved to them. Their clubs always looked a bit naff to me (rightly or wrongly)
