Like a moth to a flame, it's so hard not to move toward one manufacturer.  It never fails, it doesn't matter which pony you pick, a few years go by and you're ready to buy everything from someone else.  I say why fight it?  Let's learn how to be sponsored this year!

Pros and Cons

Taylormade

Pros
If you go all Taylormade, you can also pretend to sign a clothing deal with Adidas Golf, which really ups your poser game.  You can also be young and edgy and rock the Ashworth stuff, so the options are really endless for you.  Throw in the white three striped belt and you're practically a touring pro.  For all their marketing, the clubs are actually really good, so it could be a win-win this season.

Cons
The ball is great, but not for everyone, which could really mess up the relationship with your pretend sponsor, and you're also subject to those things they call wedges.  Also, their staff bags and hats change every 6 months, so this is an ongoing investment that you have to consider to maintain your poser level.

Titleist

Pros
If you go all Titleist, you have a nice transition from woods to putters, cause it's all pretty quality stuff.  The staff bag also doesn't change often, so you can maintain your level of poser for quite a while before reinvesting.  And let's face it, there's a million of these guys, so you could fly under the radar and pull this off too.  You also have Footjoy to round out your look, which isn't too shabby I might add.

Cons
It's hard to find a pretend clothing deal.  Sure, you can go with Oakley, Polo, UnderArmour or someone, but it feels like your poser game has lost some street cred.  You also lose out on all the fuzzy feelings you get with Taylormade and Callaway marketing hype.  I mean, how fun is it really to say you're hitting a <insert number> versus a JetSpeed?  The models also don't really change each year, so it loses some poser edge unless you go with the story about Titleist letting you bag what you want as long as it's theirs (which requires some acting skills).

Callaway Golf

Pros
If you go all Callaway Golf, you've got some quality stuff throughout the bag.  Some woods are hook central, but nothing the pro model can't fix, or a story about some custom fitting sessions in Carlsbad.  Staff bags also get a big bonus, cause collecting the bombs is kind of cool, and tells you're playing parters that you're 250 yard drive is really a 320 bomb.  Also, you could maybe pretend you're a professional long driver, but that really comes down to whether you can swing the club 115mph to pull off the look to unsuspecting ams that think 300 is long.

Cons
Sure, you can wear Callaway clothing, and it's pretty decent stuff, but it's not as easy to find or on sale.  Those golf ball dimples also take some getting use to, but I'm sure you can work it out.  Also, the endless questions about Phil could get to be too much, depending on whether you're a fan or not.

Ping

Pros
If you're a cast guy, you've found your home.  These guys have lots of great options, and even touring pros will play the i series so you might be able to pull the whole thing off.  Plus, you can also get your putters dipped in gold (spray paint might work), and start a room in your house.  This is for the serious poser, however.  Another good thing, you can pretend to sign a deal with any ball maker and still be legit.

Cons
Not everyone loves cast, so this could be an issue.  You also have no clothing deal options to complete the full poser effect, though you might be able to pull it off with Oakley (especially if you say you're truck is bullet proof (don't test it out, no matter how many beers on the course you drink)).

Mizuno

Pros
If you're a forged guy, this is really a great way to go.  Irons, wedges, and putters are top notch stuff, and you can tell stories about how samurai swords are made.  Bags and hats don't change often, so you can maintain your poser level for some time.  You can also pretend to be sponsored with any golf ball, but I'd stick with Titleist on this one.

Cons
Woods are not at the top of peoples list, and although their own pros will bag a TM driver, it lowers your ranking.  You have no clothing deal options either, which really limits you to Oakley, Polo, UnderArmour, etc.  

Nike

Pros
If you go all Nike, you have some great Nike swooshed options.  Pretty quality throughout the bag overall.  And when you sign a pretend deal with Nike, with it comes apparel, shoes, hats, street wear when you're not playing, etc.  You can pull off the best poser image, behind TM, in the game.  This is also the best option for the PLAYAS... you know who you are (no need to insert a cheap Tiger waitress joke).

Cons
You live in the shadow of Tiger, and it's creating friction with your pretend sponsor.  You also would never bag anything but their blades, so you better bring your A game.

Wilson Staff

Pros
A long history of winners and majors, you follow in great footsteps.  They are also a general sporting company, so you can mix in other sporting equipment to round out your pretend sponsorship.  Also, they don't sponsor many people you've heard of, so in the US you have a higher chance of pulling this off (unless they are hardcore golf fans).  Plus, you could make your own funny youtube commercial if you're the type.

Cons
Seriously?  No, really, seriously?  Where do we even begin?  You have no pretend clothing deal associated with this sponsorship, let alone shoes or ball, but I suggest you're a journeyman that likes to march to the beat of your own drummer (may require acting skills) to pull this off.

Adams Golf

Pros
You're best friends with Watson... just go with it.  Besides, you were also instrumental in Els leaving Callaway.  This could win you an oscar this year.  BTW, their stuff is actually really good, and the shaft upgrades alone make this a smart pretend sponsorship for any poser (especially on a budget).  Also, you're inside knowledge about TM owning AG makes you not only the real deal, but gives you the ability to fulfill your dream of wearing yellow shoes.

Cons
These guys are associated mainly with Champions Tour players.  I know what you're saying, it's only bad for the guys under 50, but it's still a major issue to consider to pull this off.

Cobra

Pros
You are the coolest kid on the block!  I mean, you sip red bull all day, and party all night with the hot ladies!  If you're young, this is THE pretend sponsorship this year.  You got some great options with the equipment as well, and you can even COLOR COORDINATE with your other pretend sponsor, Puma.

Cons
Only for the young.  Seriously, no one needs to see a 40 year old guy in orange pants. 'nough said.

Cleveland Golf

Pros
Still one of the top wedge makers, and a solid overall choice.  This is a nice sleeper sponsorship.  You also won't have to worry about all the pressures of shooting commercials or marketing materials since they never do it.  You can also link your pretend sponsorship with Srixon, which is a huge selling point if you prefer a yellow ball.

Cons
Let's be honest, this sponsorship is home for the insane.  VJ is spraying antler urine or something on himself, Beljan is laying all over the course with panic attacks near death, and where do we even start watching Keegan hit a ball.  You'll also have to work on a clothing deal here, and if Srixon isn't your deal, you will have a tough time pulling this one off.

Bridgestone Golf

Pros
Fred Couples.  Yeah, that's what you're getting here, and it's a good thing.  OK, everyone likes some Kuch (don't say that with your wife around), but it's all about Couples here.  The equipment is actually pretty good, particularly the forged stuff.  You also have a great ball selection to fit anyones game with this pretend sponsorship, and all of them are totally legit options with Lee hanging on to the lower ball speed models.  You also have a lot of flexibility with this sponsor, so it could be a win-win if you're a tinkerer.

Cons
It's been a while, but didn't the woods look like something Austin Powers would use?  It took some serious wind out of this sponsorship in the driver department in the past, which is why you saw some other options in the bag.  Couples or no couples, Bridgestone Golf just doesn't seem to carry the kind of poser power of the others, so you have to really figure out who you want to pretend you are.

I beg to differ.

A Titleist bag with Oakley clothes is plenty poser.

Btw, love the thread.  Can't wait for the Mizuno and Cobra entries....

I think there should be a 10 day ban for using the word "poser" and the phrase "street cred" in the same post on a golf forum.

I use to play nothing but Cobra for many many yrs. Then I became a member here and things changed. Now I have a mixed bag. Ping,Cobra,Exotics,Mizuno and  Sun Mountain bag. I use to be the biggest Cobra poser ever.

I think you can play all one company and not be a poser.  A real poser is the guy decked out head to toe with blades and staff bag and hits it all over the park carding a beautiful 108.  That same guy comes on here and chimes in on the obligatory  "should I play blades" thread claiming how it doesn't affect his game, ball striking is his forte and it's the putting and driving that really hurt him.

Obviously the thread is complete tongue in cheek to say the least.  I've been around GolfWrx long enough to know we're big time club hos through and through, and it's poking a little fun at that.

Hell, I started this thread because I started creating one sponsor bags in my head this year... I'm as guilty as anyone.  And with that, I'm kind of torn, but leaning toward TM since it comes with a killer clothing deal as well.

I guess we go sit in a corner with KJ Choi and cry about our inability to be sponsored.  Real or otherwise.

I'm right with you brother. Cally driver, wishon fairways,Titleist irons, cleveland wedges, and a rife putter. It kind of saddens me to see the mixed bag guys sign contracts. The fall of Hennie stennie cut me deep.

My suggestion, pick one of the pretend sponsors you already have, and fill in the rest of the bag with the matching.  You have a lot of great options.  Since you like the Titleist ball, I'd go with someone that comes with an independent ball deal.

If you go Titleist, the obvious choice for clothing is Footjoy. They make everything from Shirts to rain gear so you're all set.

As for Ping. They make some really nice clothing of their own as well.

If you want another wildcard clothing company to pair with Ping, Titleist or even Adams, you could go all UnderArmour.

Mizuno

Pros
If you're a forged guy, this is really a great way to go.  Irons, wedges, and putters are top notch stuff, and you can tell stories about how samurai swords are made.  Bags and hats don't change often, so you can maintain your poser level for some time.  You can also pretend to be sponsored with any golf ball but I'd stick with Titleist on this one.

Cons
Woods are not at the top of peoples list, and although their own pros will bag a TM driver, it lowers your ranking.  You have no clothing deal options either, which really limits you to Oakley, Polo, etc.  

Chris Wood uses the woods and has a Mizuno clothing contract. I guess because he's a Euro Tour player and only 80th in the OWGR he doesn't count though. :)

Also, I almost signed a full imaginary contract with Adams a couple years ago, but I couldn't pronounce the name of the wedges. I felt I'd be a poor imaginary brand ambassador as a consequence.
Real brand ambassadors never refer to clubs or people by full name, eg. -Wedge Voke ground for me, had a good round playing with Duf and Keeg...

Dude, you're a mess.  Someone is going to drop you if you don't show some brand loyalty.  And you call yourself a GolfWrx equipment forum poster... I think NOT.

I know I'm really trying to get my act together, but other than putter/ball I have no loyalty.
