    Equipment Sponsorship

    Enter the realm of your imagination.

    If you could set up an equipment sponsorship (that is still a relatively realistic one) what would it be?

    Would you be a 14 club guy and ball all with one company a la Callaway, titleist, and taylormade, would you do multiple smaller deals, or would be a free agent?

    I think if I was good enough to get a deal, I would find what works best for my game and then try to get endorsements. There almost certainly would be multiple companies involved.

    If I had to pick one for everything, probably Callaway. Or TaylorMade. Or Bridgestone. Lol. I dunno, thatíd be tough (as evidenced by with WITB currently (for now I have a Titleist 52* and a TaylorMade 56*). I currently have Cobra (2 slots), Callaway (4 slots), Nike (5 slots), Titleist (2 slots), TaylorMade (1 slot), and I fell in love with Bridgestone TourB RX so thatís my current ball of choice. If Iím waking I use a Maxfli Carry Bag, if Iím riding I use a TEE Cart Bag.

    So I pretty much have the ultimate mongrel bag, hell I donít even use the same iron set, using Epics for long irons and Vapor Speeds for short irons.

    If we are talking as a tour pro, I’d go with whoever offered the best deal.

    As an amateur, I don’t really have a preference. I could find clubs that work well from every major OEM. I like stuff from all of them.

    In motocross/woods racing racing it is pretty simple for resourceful amateurs to get support in the form of product discounts 30-50%, in return for representation at the races, etc. I only wish the same were true of golf!

    My dream world I'd have Cobra, Srixon, and Callaway in the mix. I could probably be happy with 10-11 club deal for iron/wedges and round out the bag with a couple select picks like putter or wood(s)s/hybrid(s)from non-sponsor OEM if needed needed. Callaway has a strong putter offerings with Toulon and Odyssey that could go in the bag.

    I like the idea of starting as a free agent with an apparel deal, and then potentially moving to one company if they had clubs that fully fit me top to bottom at the highest level
