1 Range Glove-
2 Practice Gloves-
Rain Gloves-
Medical Kit (bandaids, ibuprofen, sunblock, bug spray)
Permanent Markers
Bag Towel
X-Personal Towel with ziplock bag  (Taylormade towel)
X-Divot Tools  (2 in bag)
X-Ball Markers (change with 1990 in bag)
X-Koozie (USB koozie)
X-Weekend Golf Balls (2 dozen Taylormade Penta TP5 (#90)
Practice Golf Balls

I have a ton of crap in my bag...


- Aimpoint book

- Tee's

- Divot repair tool

- Ball marker + lots of coins/change

- ~ 15 Balls - I always have to many which weighs down my bag (I'm an idiot)

- Gloves (I don't wear a glove - but just incase it gets really humid and my hands start slipping - or if I get a nasty blister I'll throw a glove on to finish my round)

- Winter gloves

- Winter hat

- Rain hood cover for my clubs

- Umbrella

- Towels (in case it rains - I've got backup)

- Vanity bag to hold watch, ring, keys, etc, etc..

- Plastic alignment aid marker tool

- Sharpies to mark my golf ball(s)


Things I need to add... USGA rule book.  I just played in a tournament last weekend and one of my playing partners had one.  And it came in great use on one of the holes where we weren't sure the deal with regard to his provisional ball.  He hit his first ball into the water on the right.  His provisional ball into the water on the left.  Then decided to take a drop and from where his first ball went into the water hazard.  I wasn't sure if he could do that - but we looked it up and he was entitled to play his first ball (hitting three) based on it entering the hazard.

Damn, you actually made me think about this. I have accumulated all the above plus a windbreaker and alignment sticks. I think it is time to empty the bag and only carry what I really need which is like half of this sh!t. No wonder my bag is so heavy.

I'll try to avoid repeating the same old things everyone has in their bag..............



I keep 2-3 diet cokes in my bag when I play.  I do have an insulated pocket that I don't even use for them. I keep my wallet, keys and all that kind of stuff in that insulated pocket. LOL... I put my cokes in a different side pocket, but because it's tight.....they still stay very cold.    Some guys need a cigar, I need a dip!!  A keep a fresh can of Skoal in my bag.   I also carry a spare battery for my laser......


Hmmmmmm what else?  I keep a lot of things in the bag, but nothing too exciting.   Advil is present......and Johnson&J first aid tape is an absolute must.  I use the tape for every round, and the generic #$$% doesn't stick...........it has to be J&J.  Generic is a big no-no!! That stuff is garbage...............


Hmmm......spare pencils with erasers...gotta have those!  A digital camera also lives in my bag........so whenever the mood strikes, I can take golf course pics!!   I keep a lot of other things in my bag...some is seasonal and some is not, but all is very general.

Same stuff everyone else has mentioned + clean socks.

i keep a couple nature valley protein bars in my bag or the munches or when laying and don't stop for lunch.  Def hits the spot and gives some energy.

Haha beat me to it. I was reading this and thinking "man, these guys have some solid handicaps to not even carry any clubs!"... Basically everything that I carry has been covered, but on tournament days I will throw an uncrustable PB&J sandwich in there to thaw out and take a couple waters for the round.

Nothing new to add here other than a current rule book and an good chunk of 1 dollar bills for whatever game we're playing.


 I hauled this am's bag during a pro-am and when I met him he had just come from the range, he dropped off his bag and took off to eat or something. So naturally I look in his bag and counted clubs, looked to see if he has balls and what not. Low and behold he had a full size, regulation video camera in his bag. It was the kind that held the old VHS tape in it. To make matters worse he had managed to make off with 3 bags of balls from the range and had them stuffed in there. Huge pro staff bag that weighed a ton. Needless to say he made a trip to the car.
