Must Have for a Round of Golf?

I'll skip the golf gadgets and items since everyone got tees, tools and balls.

My most important item is the water bottle. If it's cold I got some warm clothing ready. I might bring some fruit and a sandwich if I don't plan on buying anything during the round. My phone is always with me.

how many tees do you use!?

18 per round.  I have to fill the jar, around half way, every couple months or so.

Golf bag and clubs

LOL - I had a buddy who once showed up at the course with out his stick or his shoes. He had played the day before & it had rained, so he took them out of his SUV and put them in the spare bedroom to dry.
Forgot all about it the next morning when he drove out to the course, it was hilarious to see his face when he popped the hatch on it. I'm not sure if he was more pissed about forgetting his shit, or because we were laughing our asses off.

I'll take a water & and tea, hat, sunscreen - this thread reminds me I need to clean out my bag, and all the crap I accumulate over the course of a season.

I like to always keep beef jerky in my golf bag, since it's a good snack to munch on while you play if it's been a while since you last ate.

Most importantly is water though. I drink a boatload of it, usually 4-6 liters per day even when I'm not out golfing. When I am on the course I carry my 1L bottle and usually fill it no less than 3 times and up to 6 times in a single round, depending on the conditions.

Bag, clubs, and all of the stuff in the bag.  My Walmart copy of a Yeti cup, refilled regularly.  That's about it.  I don't have any interesting superstitions, so nothing odd in my gear.

Aside from the various brands of balls, tees, glove, and snacks I use (which can change by the month or season), about the only thing specific thing I'd miss would be my Lexi-proof ball marker:

My pitchfix, ball mark, and a towel with one end wet. Things don’t feel right otherwise.

I agree with water bottle. I use a YETI thermos, half-filled with ice, and I replenish it along the way with water as needed. On those hot summer days, I can easily drink a gallon, walking.

One thing I don't always bring to the golf course is ... ta-da... my game. :-P

I carry a silver hip flask filled with scotch.  I take a celebratory nip after a birdie or eagle.  I picked the flask up in Scotland during a golf vacation in 2000.  The flask was on sale in the clubhouse of one of the courses and engraved to commemorate their 500 year anniversary.  A cool and unusual item I keep tucked away in the valuables pocket on my bag.

Out of the stuff I'm willing to admit to packing ...

- Spare lighter. Yes I smoke like a chimney when i golf, so there is an extra Bic in the golf bag.

 

  I always make a mental note of my lighter color when i go out, as well as keeping a spare in the bag.  My playing partner is notorious for stealing mine, usually by hole number five I've already asked twice if he has mine.

Ricola cough drops. They keep me focused and calm. I do the same for when I am skiing. Not exactly sure how it started but it became a habit.

    • The Mosconi Cup, the pool equivalent to the Ryder Cup, is this week.  USA vs Europe. If you’re interested in watching some of the best in the world, it’s awfully entertaining and instructive to watch these guys think their way around the table. You can find it on DAZN and Sky Sports...
    • ?  "Talking Shit" is saying something like, "oh you suck, your swing sucks, my grandma could beat you" etc.  That is "talking shit."   Saying "if you miss this it will go into the water," or "there is out of bounds to your right don't hit it out of bounds."  Is definitely not talking shit.  I guess you could consider it gamesmanship.   Regardless, it goes back to the weirdness of not having a rule regarding "gamesmanship."  Technically, "gamesmanship" could keep escalating. 
    • No, it’s not. Some people call it “gamesmanship.”
    • I've got a Cobra Long Tom you can have.  It might give you some insight and/or ideas.
    • Your not getting it.  I would totally be ok with someone talking shit to me!  In fact, I like that and think it's funny, and have no problem with that.   The issue is when someone introduces bullshit doubt into the next shot I'm about to take.  On my own I can sometimes eliminate (in my mind) the possible negative outcome of the next shot, but if someone specifically talks about that negative outcome right before I hit the shot I'm unable to clear it from my mind.  That's completely different from what you are talking about....
