Has anybody else named one of their clubs???  My Ping Anser putter has been named "Mrs Kensington"... the name came about this summer after a few "refreshments" on the course and the resulting Austin Powers immitation I was doing after getting some heat for loosing my "MOJO" (put a few Nike Mojo golf balls in the same lake) ....  am I alone in naming a club????  If not what names have fellow Golfwrx members used and what is the background on its naming???

Ping G20 Driver: 9.5 Degree
Cobra S9-1: 5 Wood
Callaway Heavenwood Hybrid: 20 & 23
Ping S59 Irons: 4-9, PW
Ping Karsten Putter: Anser
Ping Tour Wedge 52° and 58°

I have called my clubs some names, most of which that can not be repeated in most company, but I have never named one. Here's to your courage for admitting this in this forum.

My hybrid is named Big Brown after the thoroughbred horse.  I won a bunch of money on one of his races and used some to get the hybrid a couple of years ago.  It started out as a joke and then it stuck.

I play an AP1 4-iron (AP-2 5-9) that I call "Das Boot" because the head is so huge compared to the rest of my irons.

I play with a guy regularly who is honestly a better golfer than I am.  But...in any kind of competition he folds.  We usually play a $25 Nassau.  With his last lost I bought a new 60 degree wedge which is now known as the "J" wedge.  His first name is Jeff.

Seems like a fellow named Jones had a putter he named "Calamity Jane".

To those who have posted comments about the subject matter of this thread: I know a little bit about the GolfWRX posting rules.

I have an old hickory shafted putter I got from my Grandpa, never really used it, but a friend of mine actually did, I think he even used it once in a US Am local qualifier back in the day.....  We joked around and did call it "Billy Baroo"......

Posted Image

The thing had the loft of about a 2 iron though, partly because it's shaft was warped....and an original leather grip that was nailed to the shaft....
