Wow you guys carry a lot of stuff! Other than balls, tees and clubs....I have a towel, a divot repair tool and a 1977 half dollar (that my dad gave me the first time we went out to play when I was 13) for ball marking. That's it! But I do walk a lot, so I ain't trying to carry around all this extra stuff you guys have. Plus I live in Texas, so no need for gloves and jackets and all that stuff.

I have a ziplock bag with tees, a couple pencils, a club wrench, some coins, a fingernail clipper, bandaids and a little rubber frog, a good luck charm given to me by my grandkids. In another pocket is my GPS. In the insulated pocket, I keep an aerosolcan of sunblock. I keep an extra glove and my rain gloves in the pocket with the rain hood for the bag. In the largest pocket is my rain suit.

On the outside of the bag is one towel to clean my club after every shot. The other towel is a larger one to wipe my face and hands with. It usually winds up in my lap once I'm on the course. i also have an umbrella of course.

In one of the club slots, there's a ball retriever and a device with a lead ball on the end that I swing to stay loose.

Things like my divot tool would be in my pocket and food/drinks are in a small cooler I put in the basket behind the seats of the cart. Since I'm diabetic, I carry Powerade Zero, which they don't sell at the course. My food is usually a couple bananas and some cheese crackers.

I read an article in a golf magazine where they polled PGA pros about how much $ they kept. Phil Mickelson, who is know to gamble and is a bug tipper responded that he had $8,000 in his bag. I worked with a "player" who kept his condoms in his golf bag so his wife wouldn't find them. Me? Nothing interesting, plus I keep the minimum in the bag so as not to spend time rooting around for things.

A bottle of 12 year aged Jamaican rum and 4 shot glasses. You never know when you might need to celebrate a good shot.
