The opposite of what you don’t understand or enjoy, what trends in golf apparel, accessories and equipment do YOU enjoy?

Yes, even you ya 14-way dorks. 😉
 
Headcover collecting
Putter collecting
Anything that makes YOU happy!
 
Club ho’ing
Stats
Apparel
 
Adams resurrection.

Any brand that comes back from the dead kicking is fun to me.
 
It seems like quality control in golf equipment manufacturing is much better. Golf shaft quality control, golf ball quality control and club builders are all producing products today that are demonstrably better and more consistent to specification than even a few years ago.
 
More colourful options in apparel...

Balls that go far!

Seriously, keep making the rocks fly farther off the face so I can cheat old man time a few more years.
 
14 way bags for sure.... ha! :geek:

Hydro coating/tech in wedges.
Smaller, minimal offset irons, but which pack forgiveness and firepower (245, T150 etc).
 
My favorite trend of all is the trend toward casual clothing in golf. It is a game played outside. We don't need to be dressed like there might be a board meeting we have to attend right after we step off the 18th green.
 
I enjoy cool headcovers.
 
Custom/Unique headcovers
More fun apparel (no longer just solid or striped shirts or very subtle pattern)
High end/innovative golf bags

If feels like the golf boom is spurring more innovation/options beyond clubs and balls.
 
Also definitely enjoy colorful ferrules, because they make me smile when pulling an iron out of the bag and are great conversation starters with people.
 
15-way bags (need room for the ball retriever, right?) :ROFLMAO:
All the putter and wood headcovers, maybe swap them out weekly or seasonally
Stat collecting and Strokes Gained
 
I enjoy the trend also of people collecting things, I think it’s cool to see what each person enjoys the most compared to others.
 
Advancements in technology IE access to LM for personal use, apps like Skillest/online coaching and feedback, and stat/data tracking. All of these things have been a huge help to me on my journey to improve.
 
athletic gear on course. hoodies, joggers, tennis shoe type golf shoes. i've done a 180* on this one; used to think it was dumb, but it's really grown on me.

This is a great one.

I love that the stuffiness is evolving within the game.
 
I love seeing people collect interesting things, and seeing small companies succeed in that space with unique designs.
It’s fun. And fun is fun.
