So... Iam really bad about matching everything in my bag. This year I知 trying to break away as I love the look of the Callaway smoke apex irons but I知 not sure I want to play anything else. Maybe wedges. Is it weird I feel the need to match everything to one brand? I知 a 7 handicap what knows what he is. I have no misconception of being a tour pro it just bothers me for some reason. Am I in the minority here?

I'll tell you what. You might be joking around a little but go out and play. That'll stop you worrying about equipment. Works for me every time.

Play with people, too. You won't be able to look at your cute little matching set after getting smoked by a guy playing a bag of beat up sticks he doesn't seem to give two sh!ts about.

I keep trying to find that magical combination of all one brand. This year I'm trying to go one brand again with a Ping bag & a Cobra bag. It's gonna work this time... I just know it....LOL.

I've given up on a one-brand bag because Cobra essentially has one style of hybrid (with rails or without) that doesn't quite suit me as well as some other hybrids. I could easily go 12 or 13 clubs of the same brand, but I can't make myself sacrifice strokes for brand OCD.

I am the exact opposite of you. I feel if they match that means I have not looked around enough and just got lazy and picked the same brand.

You say that now.  :taunt:

In the grand scheme of things, there are worse things to occupy our thoughts.  It's not big deal either way.  Nothing to stress over.  

Your socks and shoes match brands, right?

Good to hear!  The last thing you want to do is be forced into a club that you don’t like as much just because it matches brand.  Best thing to do with ocd is to not think about it, but that’s easier said than done lol

Golf OEMs should hand out free hats at OCD conventions.  People will spend thousands just so their clubs match the free hat.  I was in the San Diego airport and PGAstore was having a blowout sale on PING merchandise.  I didn't own any PING clubs except my old Anser. but I bought, a hat, shirt, vest, and shorts for like $50 total. Now, I have PING irons and a PING 3 wood and thinking about a PING driver.  LOL.

Would have been cooler if you called him a butt puppet. Nonetheless, I have never done a 1 brand bag. With how OEM's manufacture golf clubs these days, it would be very easy to do a full complete bag of any of them. Except Cobra. They don't make putters anymore.

I have gone back and forth from wanting to match everything to wanting a total mish-mash with every club having its own identity ... In any case, I definitely have golf-gear OCD and probably spend more time tinkering with, thinking about, and researching golf clubs than I do actually playing golf. Sad.

Do what I do, one brand per bag area

One for woods
One brand for hybrids
One for irons
One for wedges
One for a putter

5 brands ... and you still have ball and glove and bag and head overs and clothing and shoes to play with

One brand limits your potential for maxing out your game thru all available options

All of the top manufacturers make top notch stuff.  You can have just as good of a handicap with a full Ping bag as you can with a different brand name on every club. Justin Rose seems to be playing just as well with a brand new manufacturer.  Launch monitors have caused this conversation more so than ever because someone took 10 swings and got 1 more yard with a certain club.  If having all matching clubs makes you happier and more comfortable playing, there痴 the possibility that more confident feeling will help.  Golf is a sport of emotion just look at Sergio.

Lol, in the minority?  Yes, you are, but I've read several other posters with the same synopsis and I chuckle every time, you guys should start your own sub forum and commiserate together. Too bad Callaway didn't make cars and house goods, I digress.  Best of luck with your "OCD"!
