Greeting's all! First I would like to say please add me as a friend on here so I will be better connected to our Team Titleist family. I have enjoyed reading a lot of your stories and questions. This topic can be as shallow or as deep as you like it to be. A simple question, why do you play Titleist?
For me, golf is a process that cannot be mastered. Though some come close, there are entirely too many variables to account for day in and day out. I believe that golf is a complex discipline. I pursue progress in this discipline because I believe it directly co-relates to other ventures we may pursue in life. For example, resisting the urge to lose your temper after bad shots can serve to build your perseverance and level headedness in stressful situations. Maintaining consistent focus through a round of golf teaches concentration and mental endurance. I justify my passion and expenditure on golf by drawing parallels that golf has with other aspects of our lives. Just one round of golf is riddled with problem solving opportunities (especially with my slice).
In his famous poem, Chief Tecumseh directs readers to "Love your life, perfect your life, beautify all things in your life". I believe a lot of us pursue golf in this way. We attempt to perfect our swing, we strive for a deeper level of focus, we train our bodies to perform, and we develop and evolve our gear to be perfect and beautiful. To me, Titleist represents this pursuit of perfection. I cannot afford to be fully equipped with Titleist gear. I am a rational consumer and I know that my performance level cannot justify a need for the very best equipment. However, as my performance progresses, I find myself converting more and more of my equipment to Titleist. To me, the brand represents golf heritage, and superb quality/ design, more so than any of their competitors. From the first time I hit a Pro V1 into the lake, I knew I wanted to be good enough to play them and not lose them! I am also a business professional and appreciate the fact that Titleist has never diluted their brand quality or image. Titleist simply means Titleist. You will find the same quality and design across all of their products. This is why I am proud to support. How about you?
