Whether it be a cold and windy day out on the links, or a steamy furnace on the driving range, sometimes nothing is better than some music to keep you company?

What are some of your favorite songs or bands to pump you up for your next tee shot, or calm you down for that clutch 6-footer?


I find it a huge help if I have some Kasabian or Muse resonating through my ears, but sometimes I need the classical sounds of Prokofiev or Rachminov to calm me down.

If ever there were two things that didn't go together, it's golf and music. What sort of %$#@#$% plays music whilst golfing?

I played a round a month or so ago, and we let this kid who was probably 14-16 years old play through. He was playing solo and just rocking out to some rowdy metal music on his headphones and he was playing lights out for the two + holes I saw him play...I was impressed to say the least. He was walking like he probably pounded a 2 liter of mountain dew right before he jumped on the course...

I have never listened, or even wanted to listen, to music while I golf. Played with a guy a couple of times that always had headphones and was putting in, taking out, adjusting, just the most annoying thing ever. I used to take a small FM radio with me to keep up with the Cardinals score as I played. When there was downtime I might flip it on to check the score. Now with cellphones, I can check at any time.

I never listen to music when I'm playing but I usually have the soundtrack to "The Legend of Bagger Vance" running around in my head. I love the work of Rachel Portman who composed and performed the music for this film, and this is some of her best work.

I never ever ever ever ever listen to music during a round. I also think that "bring a radio with you on your golf cart to listen to your favorite music" guy that you run into on a public course; I think that guy should be sent to Gitmo for water-boarding.

HOWEVER....

I listen to music on the range a lot...especially in the spring when all the d*ckbags are there to warm up for their South Carolina trip and say the word "f@ggot" a lot between 130 yard 7-irons. Plus, I like music on the range because I can block out what's happening around me a little easier, allowing me to focus on what I'm working on.

I like to listen to rhythmic music when on the range, so I usually listen to something in the reggae/hiphop/soul universe. I have a mix called "driving range classics" (lol@the title) of about 550 songs that I just put on shuffle. Most of it has a good groove to it. I'm a big indie rock dude, but I'm not going to listen to Guided by Voices or Pavement on the range. Instead, it's Wu-Tang, Tribe Called Quest, Toots & the Maytals, Parliament Funkadelic, Prince, MF Doom....somethin' like that.

I recently made a trip to Scotland with my wife. I played Carnoustie and The Old Course, and since I was alone I wore the ipod for the first time. It was fantastic, it put me in a more magical place believe it or not. The key is having headphones on that allow you to hear everything outside of them while listening to your tunes.

A buddy of mine and I belong to Country Clubs a couple miles from each other so we exchange rounds once a month. When we do we bring a battery powered ipod speaker setup and play each other our favorite tunes through the round. We started it in his member guest and found it really kept us loose... so loose that we won the derby at the tournament ($1500!). Some people can't do it, they just don't have the frame of mind. But if you do, it is great to have some tunes on, it teaches you to remain within yourself... relax and not let outside stuff distract from your game.

Driving to or returning from golf... John Sebastian Bach, especially BWV 1006a. Air on a G String is not bad either.

Send me to gitmo because I love some classic 70's rock while I play. It's not at a loud volume and remains in the cart the whole time. My playing partners comment how much they enjoy the music too. Nothing like hearing momma told me when I was young... Baby be a simple kind of man... Keeps things light hearted

    • Actually I do ( did ). I write right handed but throw, bat and golf left handed. I bowl left handed, played tennis right handed, Ping Ping..either hand is fine. When I try a new task or tool...I often have to consciously decide which hand feels better to use.   I think you mean anatomy? If the human body is capable of performing an action, there’s nothing opposite or foreign about it. It may be more difficult than another task, but not foreign or opposite.   The hands are the only part of the body directly connected to the club. We can manipulate the face of the club with our hands independently of the rest of the body. I can stand still and hit hooks or slices while keeping my torso practically still.

    • Juli,    Our dominant hands perform millions of everyday task for us that are in our subconscious mind. We never give them a thought. However, the golf swing is NOT in our subconscious mind . It is a learned conscious task that is totally foreign and opposite to human genetics. If it was NATURAL NBA and NFL and other great PRO athletes would be leading the PGA tour .    Our shoulders ( upper arms ) are the most flexible joints in our body . This enables our dominant HANDS to bring food to our mouths so we could survive as humans and they will ALWAYS roll over, turn down unless we force them / teach them to perform otherwise . The DS only takes 2/10 seconds . Whatever key you choose to use must be  preprogrammed / prepared before you ever pull the shaft back . The human brain can only sort out and perform ONE ( 1 ) task in that short amount of time . So - what is that one thought to be ? Well - their is a direct connection between the brain and it’s dominant hand . The right in your case . It is responsible for dropping the entire lever system down back around behind our torso and to stay right palm upward during the entire DS . If we don’t we definitely know what is going to happen and you can see it on any range in the world . It is the turning of the torso ( inner circle ) that squares the face, not the hands ! Yes - I know this sounds radical and some will say so , but check out * Cortical Homunculus * and see where I am coming from.  thanks for your reply . Good luck
    • I get where you are going with this.  The only thing I can think of that would really constitute a "Mental Mistake" is there have been times where I'm forced to used a cart and it's cart path only. I assume I have the correct club and then by time I walk across to my ball (Not sure why I never hit it near the cart-path.) I realize I don't have the "right" club. So, 9 times out of 10 I use the club I have rather then hike back for another one.  Sometimes it works out, sometimes it doesn't. When it doesn't I always think "Damned, I'm an idiot."  Pretty much the rest of the time my mistakes come from this list. Hit it off the hosel. Hit it off the toe. Hit it off the heel. Hit it off the bottom. Hit it off the top of the club, or roof of the driver. Shanked it. Thinned it. Or some other unexpected weirdo swing fault that happens.  I would bet "mental" mistakes, on average, probably make up about 1 shot a round for me... maybe less. I played yesterday. Shot an 84.... 12 over par. I don't think any of those 12 were due to "mental" mistakes. I would say that all 12 shots came from "didn't hit it good enough" mistakes.
