    Re: Does brand loyalty affect your game.

    By luck and bargain hunting, I'm reasonably Ping heavy, but I'd play any brand if I had found sticks I like at the right price.

    Re: Does brand loyalty affect your game.

    Change my equipment far too often to ever develop any Brand Loyalty.

    Currently in a Srixon bag I have Callaway, Titleist, Mizuno, Cleveland and Wilson Staff clubs.

    Doesn't improve my game but it makes me happy!

    Re: Does brand loyalty affect your game.

    Not sure why there is the assumption that having all of one brand means you don't have a good fit?

    If you went to any of the big manufactures for a full fitting they would test you with lots of different shafts, heads, lie angles etc. You could even go as far as different style of putters and wedge bounces.

    You could argue that someone who went through that process might have a better fit than someone who walks into AG and picks up 5 different brands with stock shafts and goes yeah I like that one today.

    I have a mixed bag and it works for me but don't discount people that only play ping etc as narrow minded because they could have an excellent fit.

    Re: Does brand loyalty affect your game.

    I suppose yes and no, my irons and metals are Mizuno, wedges Cleveland, putter Edel, ball Srixon, bag and trolley Motocaddy. My golfing clothes are whatever I like and fits, shoes will always be Footjoy, as I had a shoe fitting with them and know what size I need in the various models they produce and they are extremely comfortable.
    If you've been smoking something you shouldn't and you see something that walks like a duck, sounds like a duck and looks like a duck, then it's probably a dog or a bag of peas.

    Re: Does brand loyalty affect your game.

    A Tour Pro being tied to one brand won't be an issue, especially someone like Rory. If the off-the-shelf equipment can't be fit to them to fit the numbers they want to see, they'll just build something to their specifications - like the Rors Irons created by TM for example. The top brands are also so similar in terms of performance that the Tour fitters will be able to dial every club in to fit exactly what they want to see.

    As for my bag, not tied to one brand. Have a TM Driver, Callaway FW and Hybrid, Nike Irons, a Titleist and Callaway wedge and a Scotty putter. I go performance based rather than brand.

    Re: Does brand loyalty affect your game.

    I've been in both camps and it's made no difference to my scores, only my bank account. It was nice to see all one brand for a while but I didn't care after a while and now go with what I like/fits my budget. I'd bet if those playing for their living had their way ALL bags would be mixed.

    Re: Does brand loyalty affect your game.

    I am brand loyal to a point; I've tended to stick with brands like Cobra, Callaway, Mizuno, Ping, Srixon/Cleveland, Taylormade, Titleist and haven't really given much thought to the other lesser brands - maybe I should, probably cost less and work just as well.
