Are you the type of person who is a die-hard customer that only supports a specific club manufacturer? You know, if you find something that works, then stick with it regardless if your game is improving or not. Well, I am semi-loyal to a golf club brand, but have transitioned from Titleist to Muzino over the last year. I made the move to Muzino after my club fitting, but I am still loyal with some clubs because I have not found anything better.
As I mentioned a few days ago, I transitioned to a Mizuno 3-wood after using my Titleist 915 for 5 seasons. I still hit it okay, but felt it was time for an update. Since I bought Mizuno irons and hybrids and are very happy with the result, I figure it is a logical step to purchase a 3-wood. And that is where my alliance stops. And here is why.
First, I am very loyal to Callaway when it comes to my driver. I have tried most of the major brands over the years and I always default to Callaway. I am not sure why, but I hit these clubs farther and more accurate than any other brand. Since my driver is a key component to my game, I stick with what is proven over years of experimenting.
Second, I us Vokey wedges. I have tried other brands, but as above, I default back to what works. I have tried other wedges, but the feel is different and the results are shorter. I find that Vokey wedges have consistently proved to be my short irons of choice.
Lastly, I am very loyal to my putter. I recently changed to an Odyssey Works and love my new flat stick. My last putter was in my bag for about 20 years until recently. So, I do not see my new putter being replaced anytime soon.
As you can see, I am loyal to a particular brand in 3 areas. As far as irons, hybrids, and fairway woods, I am open to changing to clubs that fit my game. I recently change to Muzino and will keep these clubs for at least 5 years. Then…..we shall see.
Are you loyal to a particular brand?
I am a grateful golfer! See you on the links!
