How many DIFFERENT BRANDS do you have in your 14-club golf bag?

Golf is a game of individual preferences and no matter how experienced or good you are, everyone has a set of clubs that suits their swing capabilities.

There are many golfers who prefer to stick with one brand because they are reliable and they have gained the player's trust, and some players enjoy chopping and changing and having a variety of clubs in their bag.

Personally, I have grown a strong affection for Ping clubs because of the comfort and confidence they give me when I set up to the ball. I have a near-complete bag of Ping clubs, but for one wedge and my putter which are different brands.

According to Sports Marketing Surveys, there were 29 different bag setups of the 156 players who teed it up at The Open Championship last week.

Most popular of the 29 setups was the driver, FW, utility iron, 4-9 iron, four wedges and putter combination, which was favoured by 24.4% of the field at Sandwich. 

As you can see by the graphic above, just under 40% of players used one club brand in their bag and under 5% used five different brands at Royal St. George's.

According to this data, the majority of the field confide in one brand of club and their confidence is instilled and placed upon the use of one specific label.

I can most certainly relate to this and many other golfers across the world will too and there is certainly a discussion to be had about club preferences.

If you are loyal to one brand like me, does this restrict your choices? Or, if you have a number of different brands in your bag, could this lead to inconsistency with different shots on the golf course?
