The only person I can think of that wears Nike apparel but doesn't use any Nike equipment is Eldrick Woods. He uses Mizuno irons, Titleist wedges, Cobra woods, and plays a balata Titleist Pro-100

Their shoes are cool to look at, but I think they wear out waaaaaaaaay too quickly. Cheaply made with softer materials, so they feel good at the pro shop, but break down quickly. The opposite of FootJoy...hard as hell to break in, but after you do, they last forever.

I hated their shoes when they first came out (around 1998 I believe). I got a pair for a tee prize. They were the MOST PAINFUL shoes I ever tried to wear. Caused blisters even after they were broken in. Finally threw them away.
Several years later, I was poking fun at the Nike rep at a demo day at how crappy their shoes were and he said, I will give you a new pair to try for free. If they suck, give them back, no charge. If you like them, pay me for them. I figured what the heck. They were comfortable from day 1. Night and day difference from that first pair I tried. They were so good that I stopped buying Footjoy Classics.
Now I know from my friends that Nike shoes don't fit everyone, but they fit me. Also they don't last as long as the Footjoy Classics but in Portland, we get so much wet play that the waterproofing gives out long before the shoes themselves wear out so I don't keep shoes for more than 2 seasons. Footjoys would still look good after 2 years (much better quality leather) but the waterproofing was shot so I couldn't use them 1/2 the year anyways.
Golf clubs are a whole different ballgame. They sucked from day 1 and as far as I am concerned they still suck. I have kept trying them but nothing appeals to me and I can get anything of theirs for 1/2 price and it still isn't worth it.
However, I do believe Nike stuff does keep getting better and perhaps one day they will have a club I would actually want to game.

Yeah I only buy Nike from Ross...but I have tons of it. And Ive never spent more than 10 bucks a shirt from Ross. Cant beat. I also own three pairs of nike shoes...wear the white SP-8's all the time....no other shoe compares. I just need to get some new black Nikes with the semi-square toes too.
As for their clubs....I cant play them...the only ones i would consider is the older sumo 5000 and the VR wedges.

I was wondering how many wear Nike apparel (hats, clothes, shoes, socks, underwear, glove), but refuse to use their equipment?
My buddy is Nike from head to toe including sunglasses but refuses to use any of their equipment
I played with uncle and a couple of his buddies and one of the guy had nike hat,glasses, shirt,socks and shoes but had all cleveland clubs. I myself have a nike hat, socks, shirt, and shoes but only use the occasional Nike golf ball. I do not own any Nike clubs. I've been wanting to try the CCi Cast irons but i went with the taylormade r7 irons instead.
