You know you are because:
                   - YOU PAY MORE FOR A SAND WEDGE THAT RUSTS
                   - U R CONVINCED THAT A NEW BALL CAN GO 20 YDS FURTHER AT THE SAME SWING SPEED
                   - YOU ANXIOUSLY AWAIT EVERY OEMs NEW RELEASE
                   - YOU HAVE 6 DRIVERS, ALL NEW, AND U R LOOKING AT NEW ONES
                   - YOU ENTER EVERY CONTEST OFFERED HOPING YOU'LL END UP IN CARLSBAD
                   -THOUGH YOU ONLY HIT IT 220, DOWNWIND, U THINK THE BALL IS GOING TOO FAR
  Please add the ones I missed !!!  :taunt: :wave: :worth: And yes, I am a GOLFWRXer, proudly

You play blades because the lofts are traditional and your game needs lots of spin.

You try new shafts even though yours is already optimized. You get new wedges when there is only a month of use. You buy new putters cause you like yours looking brand new.

You've bought a club, sent it off for refinishing, and sold it without ever using it.

You own a "guest" or "travel" set of clubs that has never touched grass.

You have a different ball choice for each season.

You think about a different Monte video at least 3 times per range session.

You could make a a 14 club bag without any clubs between 20 and 45 degrees, without duplicating any lofts. Then you could justify why every club has a unique function in that setup.

Your children/wife have better clubs than your playing partners.

Your playing partners bags all have at least one club that used to be yours.

You own more drivers than the number of courses you played last year.

You know exactly how you would construct a 3-club, 5-club, 8-club, or 10-club bag, but feel that something is missing from your 14 club bag.

In the winter you use the vacuum on the carpeting in the master suite to create practice putts that break left, right or are into the grain.

That’s preposterous, we all know only the newest driver gives 20 more yards in that scenario.
