Agree with you.  My wife says the same thing.  I just like things to match otherwise I don't feel right.  I know it is stupid but it is what it is.  I wear Ecco or FJ shoes so don't worry about the shoe matching part.

For clothing? Don't care. For clubs, don't care either. I'd love to play someone OCD like you guys are talking. Pretty sure you'd be twitching at my sense of "style" from the first tee. Give me your money.

Not weird at all.  Unless they are paying you to use a certain company, you can use whatever you want.

Off the golf course do you wear all the same brands - Levi's jeans, Levi's sox, Levi's shirts, Levi's shoes, Levi's underwear...

ya, I'm more worried about actually matching, rather than matching brands.  I go for comfort! When they start paying me, I'll be brand loyal.
Unfortunately My favorite hat (which is also white and goes with almost any get-up) is adidas but I wear lots of nike, and under armor shirts. Also sport either puma, nike or foot joy shoes depending on color(black,white, brown).
Biggest flaw would be wearing my titleist hat(one of several) with my callaway 1/2 sleeve pullover while swinging my taylor made clubs

I cant do it, I find it really weird to wear different brands. Im not sure why, the stripe and swoosh just dont go together lol. Though to be honest I do not really like Adidas clothing, there apparel seems very bland to me. I like Nike, Puma, and Travis matthew apparel (though havent owned any TM, just like the designs).

You would find me really odd, I even wear pants over shorts 95% of the time, Swoosh baby.

Yep.

Though I have to admit, I only wear adidas shoes and I hate wearing a Nike belt with them.

Mine is more to do with matching colors and style than brand, its just easier. So I typically stick to one brand for my clothes but wear Nike and Foot Joy shoes.

While it may bother me a little to be wearing very large brazen logos which are different its more of an OCD, I think the statement above is spot on.  Match your colors, if the logos match - fine, if they dont - fine.

Wow, double bagging? I always choose one or the other. Seems like that would get warm in the summer months.


Every now and then I'll end up wearing the same brand head-to-toe. Mainly because the colors are designed to work together throughout an apparel line. I don't hesitate to mix brands if they work together.

I generally avoid buying heavily logo'd apparel, but I get why people like the look. Still, I am guilty of chuckling every time I see someone doing the head-to-toe "Fowler" look.

I find it more toolbaggery (jk) than not to be matching head to toe like you're on tour.  Being a 6'4 230 lbs natty bodybuilder I'm lucky enough to find !@#$ that fits.

yeah! as a former footballer, I am happy to have fit and comfort...I also have to realize what looks good on Tiger does not translate onto 6'1 250...
