PostSubject: What is it about BOYS and our TOYS?   Thu Aug 23, 2012 5:42 pm

As the title suggests, what is it about boys and our toys?

it is clear, just by looking at this forum, that many of us are as crazy about the equipment as we are with the game. For instance, I have a 9 Scotty camerons, and yet i find myself always wanting to buy more of them. My current titleist 909D3 driver works wonderfully, and yet I just bought a R11s driver....

My question is, do u guys know of any lady golfers who are as equipment crazy? all the female golfers that i know simply use whatever works, and maybe upgrade their equipment occasionally. But NONE, and i mean NONE, have the same spark in their eyes, as guys do, when we talk about the latest golf equipment

so are there any equipment-crazy ladies out there? or is it really just a guy thing??? =)

my wife asked, "what's that, another club again?????"

i replied "and what about that, another handbag????"

for "research", I would browse golfwrx, she browses purseblog.com etc

I dun even dare check the store room with her shoe boxes

the itch don't discriminate gender, it just trigger different directions e.g. at paragon, I take elevator straight to third floor, while she stays at ground floor

I honestly don't like shopping. I only go shopping when I need a new pair of shoes or clothes but love going to golf shops to look see look see. I like looking at golf stuff. I have changed my irons 3 times and now that I'm using Muiras irons I find that there is no need to change but have changed my shafts recently to Miyazaki. I have also changed my putters 4 times and using an Edel now. Maybe not as equipment crazy as some guys but one of the reason is bcos golf equpments are ex and I don't have the moolahs to chase it. Lol

Yes, boys are obsessed with different things. It's partly peer pressure, it's partly an eagerness to see if new technology will drive improvements. But, mostly, it's just what we do. Besides scratching our balls, passing gas in public and having hair, it's what we do best.

i'm trying to counter this by buying more expensive stuff... i'm hoping tht my royal collection and honma irons will last me at least till the end of the year when i get my bonus.....

i suspect tht if i do purchase the high end honma set, i will probably stop buying golf equipment for a while

Man are from Mars and women are from Venus, so the thing we like are different. If a woman think or like the same thing as man, she must be from Mars. Wahahaha....
