You tell everyone what tee boxes they should play and what fun is even though you don't personally ascribe to that approach.

Score a sweet driver on ebay, count down the days waiting  for delivery, frantically open the box once it arrives, then realize u already have this model in the Garage. Doh!!!

You type “go...” in your browser and instead of your comp going to google it goes to GolfWRX.

You have bought a club then sold it and then you buy it again because maybe the 7 swings you made it with on the range may have not
Been a true test.

When you break 85 with your SGI irons and think it may be time for blades.

When you start a thread saying "bag is set for the season" when deep down you know you're not kidding anybody.

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

Very true, but ironically at the other end of the bag, you buy a driver that is the lowest spinning thing in the world, with the stiffest shaft because we all know that low spin is best! You then wonder why your drives are falling out of the sky and only carrying 150yds, blame it on a cracked driver head, and buy another!

When you declare the newest putter designs are too "Star Trek" or "look too much like a branding iron" or "red is distracting" and then go buy one after watching someone in your foursome drain everything with a "red Klingon battleship"...

You start buying different golf shoes, bags, and gloves when you get bored or feel guilty from hoeing too many clubs and think that's actually a cure.  

Then go buy an identical backup putter to your gamer because you heard the a new is going to replace it. Then you buy the new model too.

When u got enough iron sets to play a different set everyday  for 3 weeks out of the month, and your still testing and ordering more.

You have had 4 sets of the same iron, multiple times, [different shafts mind you, i'm not crazy] lol ]  but within 6 months they have been all sold.

You have traded in a set that u specifically ordered for ??  That particular set is so obscure it collects dust on the store shelf, they finally want to get rid of them so they put on a fire sale price.  You end up buying them back, and still have them and will never sell them.

Anytime anyone from my Men's league needs a new club for some reason i'm the first person they ask.

You know a new iron purchase will set your scores back for 3 weeks minimum but you do it anyway, because the bag appeal will be on point.

Maybe you should try to fix this issue with physical therapy?
Strengthening the muscles and stretching the right regions.

Limiting the time you sit before a screen, is a good start.
Invest the gained time to strenghten your core...

...afterwards, you can spoil yourself with a new toy.

I know, you know - but you know... ;)

You spend literally hours debating in your mind if tipping your driver shaft 1/2 inch will give you more accuracy.

When you can reminisce about that set of irons you had that one time like it was the girl whom you should have married.  (Why did I sell my Taylormade t stamp cavity irons with the original project x satin shafts?!)

When you are fit for a soft stiff but are convinced that an x stiff will be better somehow.

When the shaft you want €™is not offered by any OEM; even as an upgrade.

The thought of playing a golf club off-the-rack makes your skin crawl.

You are convinced the new wedge grinds will help you more than the wedges you’re used to.

You are convinced that new blades are much better than blades from ten years ago.

You’ve saved 10% of the cost of a new set by buying heads, shafts, grips and assembling a set.  Then taken the set to the range, decide you don’t like the combo, then sell it for half of what you spent.... any the cycle goes on.

Every club in your bag is validated because someone used a similar model to win a PGA tour event.

You wonder how long it will be until your wife does the math and realizes that you are not breaking-even on your trades.
