4.) LCD BacPac ($79 - on Amazon it is $88.99)
5.) Tripod ?? - need to figure out which one I'm going to buy
And last but not least... You recommend the Gorilla tripod? That seems small. How do you get the proper height for filming? Do you just rest it on your golf bag stand? Seems like there should be a better solution? When I took a lesson with Dana last week - he had a larger tripod that wasn't exactly small - but it was collapsible... More of a professional looking/traditional photographer setup.
Yeah Amazon is usually cheaper or at least the same cost. Again I got the official GoPro tripod mount for $5.99. Amazon Prime shipping for two days free, too. I was shocked to see it $11.95 today. It's $7.99 at GoPro's site though oddly they don't list it on the sidebar anymore: http://gopro.com/camera-mounts/tripod-mount/ .
Anyway, tripods are what you want. I use my GoPro to film disc golf and for that the GorillaPod is great. For golf I stuck it on my cheapie tripod (~$75). For photography, my tripod cost about $750 (and the ballhead about $600 on top of that, no pun intended).
The GorillaPod would be a good thing to have - you could stick it on a cart's steering wheel or frame to record your swings on the course, a club in your bag to record yours swing on the range, whatever.
But a true tripod is great too.
BTW did you plan in the cost of a micro-SD card?
