Just been through all my golf gear.

17 Under Armour polos

9 dozen boxed brand new ProV1's

9 pairs of shoes

Do I need therapy or am I perfectly normal?

I would say that compared to my stash, your ball count is on the low side. 😂 Lord knows why I keep buying them when I hardly lose them.

I was sorting my golf gear out yesterday and I would be short of balls this season. I did say last season I wasn’t going to buy more until I’ve ran out but it seems and endless supply. 😂

13 golf bags
16 sets of irons
17 sets of woods

I may have miscounted in order to kid myself.
Apart from shoes and gloves, I don't have much that is specific golf-branded clothing.
I've got a Callaway gilet that is actually a large ladies size.
A quilted Ping top that I like very much, because it looks like a Star Trek uniform similar to picture on the left.
If I need balls, I just grab a box in the pro-shop and it comes off the credit from all the 2s sweep wins.

I don't have a problem. People that think I have a problem, have a problem. :LOL:

But if you want to form a support group - er - leave me out thanks. ;)

I keep a good stash of golf balls. Buy loads in one go, get a deal, use until all gone.

Clothes though is one in two out rule at the moment. It’ll be some years until that causes problems!

Golf clothing I don't have an issue with. Occasionally I get a little stocked up on balls....I tend to "like" a ball for a while, buy a bunch (a couple of boxes...not thousands like some of you) and then for no good reason flip to something else and I end up with a few sleeves of something. I've been hitting Supersofts all winter and I have been playing so well I might just keep hitting them all summer. £27 a box (holy crap....they have gone up!!) at Snainton compared to £47.99 for Pro V's......hmmmm....let me think about that for NOT A SECOND....I'll take the Supersofts.

Do you need help?
17 polos - normalish number.
9 dozen golf balls - a trifle excessive but okay.
9 PAIRS OF SHOES - your new name is Imelda!!!! Seek counselling immediately! 🤣

I've gone from 3-4 polos to double figures in the space of two years. Not far back on mid layers now either. Not quite sure how it happened 🤷‍♂️. They don't ever seem to wear out either so I tend just to add rather than replace.

Balls, when I first started I used to go through a lot, based on a mixture of being a bit rubbish and playing the type of course that eats balls. That hasn't been the case for a while but I still have that psychological issue of needing lots of balls in my bag and in the garage ready to be used. I suspect I have 70-80 tucked away, 50-50 new and lake. Realistically a few years supply now.

It's a golf thing 😄

I've got waaay more clothes than that - at least 30 polos and most of mine are Under Armour too. However I've only got one box of balls for this season (not starting them until the weather's decent) and only four pair of golf shoes in operation - not counting another pair I no longer wear.

County Golf is how it happens. Every time I see a nice UA polo on there for £20 it's hard to resist clicking the button.

My shirts are mainly from Virgin Swingers. One a season for several years then 3 at each of the four finals I got to. One I didn't like the colour of so it became shoe rags and I gave one of the final shirts to my caddy in Sun City. Loads of balls from Virgin Swingers and Linksnet. And I bought some Chrome soft with the european flag on to play in Team Europe. And had to buy some with St.George's flag on because I wanted to.
Last year's model of shoe at the Footjoy website going cheap. Liked them, so bought two more pairs. And a pair a skechers from Linksnet. Played in a pair of my older shoes today.

The goody bag at the Virgin Gleneagles final included a Proquip waterproof. It kept me dry in Scotland. It was black so to colour coordinate, I recently bought a red version and a blue version.

This is my excuse also and I'm sticking to it!!!

To clarify......I have lots of other polos but definitely a UA fetish. A few UA midlayers too. 4 pairs of waterproof trousers, 3 jackets.

And yes JamesR I do have trousers :ROFLMAO:
