Titleist is the dominant brand among the golf clubs used by the top 100 players on the PGA Tour. Titleist clubs are the most played in all club categories, with the sole exception of street woods. Callaway is the next most popular brand among this elite group, with PING golf clubs being the next most common. Of course, this assumes that all sponsored players are the same, which, of course, they are not.
Nike is happier to have Tiger Woods playing in their clubs than Charl Schwartzel wearing the swoosh. The company founded by Barney Adams has no employees among the top 50 in the official world golf ranking. The great Ernie Els, however, is a member of Adams' staff, which is a feather in the company's cap. One of the most dynamic brands in professional golf, the Cobra-Puma golf children's poster is Rickie Fowler.
The bold, brilliant and avant-garde company recently saw the defection of Ian Poulter. However, with golfers like Fowler and Lexi Thompson on their list, Cobra-Puma has control over some of the most marketable young golfers on the planet. The Japanese company Mizuno does not have a large presence on the PGA Tour. The iron specialist only tells the previous world No.
While golf is not the core of Bridgestone's company, the company founded in Japan began manufacturing golf clubs in 1972 and has had a presence on tours for the past few decades. Top 50 golfers Matt Kuchar and Brandt Snedeker play in Bridgestone clubs (at least partially). Davis Love III and Fred Couples are also sponsored by the company. A partnership with the most influential and popular golfer was a big blow to Nike (which essentially formed its golf division for Woods).
Ping has seven of the 50 best golfers in the world among its ranks. The Arizona-based manufacturer's reputation for quality has made it popular with professionals since the launch of Eye 2 irons more than 20 years ago. Callaway Golf, headquartered in Carlsbad, California, has experienced a resurgence in recent years thanks to a huge marketing boost and efforts to refresh the brand. The makers of the Pro-V1, the most played golf ball on the Titleist tour, also have more top 50 golfers on their books than any other manufacturer.
Traditionally regarded as chasing a large number of professionals, rather than shooting for big names, Titleist's approach has brought 15 of the top 50 golfers in the official world golf ranking, especially Adam Scott. So what golf clubs do professionals use? Let's find out. According to Golf Monthly, McIlroy is using the “new Callaway Great Big Bertha Epic Sub Zero driver” along with the Callaway Apex MB prototype irons. When asked this year about his decision to use Titleist balls, McIlroy confessed that the Callaway driver works well with the Titleist brand.
Several of the best players in the game are scheduled to compete in Colonial. The following list reveals all the irons currently used by the top 10 players in the Official World Golf Ranking. Former Swoosh employees were left without club sponsorships, and while many re-signed lucrative contracts — such as Rory and Tiger with TaylorMade — some remain unsigned, and a glance in their bag contains a jumble of equipment. If you tend to hit country balls before starting a round, and if you like to use a practice tool during those sessions, don't hesitate to carry it in your bag (if it's not too heavy and if it's not another golf club).
No matter how you approach your golf career, look for a professional golf school to give you an idea of which clubs to buy and use, and which ones to discard. Robin golf clubs fall into the Super Game Improvement category, so they are easy to hit, forgive and make the ball go into the air. And in addition to their professional clubs, they serve the medium-high handicap sector well, with their latest Callaway “Mavrik” range that includes a “Max” game upgrade option with big head and impressive sorry. According to some media outlets, TaylorMade is the second best club manufacturer in the world behind Titleist.
Whether it means carrying three or four wedges, your taller clubs should give you versatility across the board. You can split the cost of Robin golf clubs between monthly payments and they offer free, no-quibble returns for 90 days. For now, it's important to focus on the set of clubs you're going to use to actually throw your shots. While the Adidas-owned club maker doesn't have a Woods or a Mickelson in its ranks, its logo adorns the hats of Justin Rose, Dustin Johnson and Sergio Garcia.
Which is a shame, because often the best way to get the best out of a specific club is to complement it with astute selections around it. While you will see the strange player wielding an old stick in contradiction to his sponsorship (Stenson's street wood), most are loyal to a brand. Hybrid sticks are easier to hit than long irons and usually carry similar distances, making them a great choice for the amateur player. Huge advances in golf technology have made many of today's “blade” irons more tolerant and much closer to a rear-cavity iron than they used to be, with the result that the distinction between the two types of clubs is no longer as clear as before.
