What's in Your Pants Pockets?

76 posts in this topic

What do you keep in your pants pockets when you're playing golf? Or, perhaps phrased better, where do you keep all your "stuff"? Here's my list:

Front left pocket: tees. Usually only two or three Zero Friction tees. Nothing else. I'll put the ball there when I don't want to carry it.

Front right pocket: ball mark repair tool (a few years old), pencil, and a coin or two for marking my ball. Each feels very different, and with only four items in the pocket anyway, I can quickly get the right thing out.

Back right pocket: wallet.

Back left pocket: nothing.

I have a few magnetic hat clips, but I rarely wear them. On my belt I have a belt clip with a ball marker, but I rarely use it - I just like it because it's got the Sand Trap logo and my name on it.

Where do you keep all your "stuff"?

I don't keep anything in my left pocket because I usually can't get it out with my glove on.

In my right front pocket I keep 3 zero frition tees, my scotty cameron pivot tool and a Norwegian 5 Kroner Coin that I use as my ball mark.

In my back pocket I keep my stats book and a pen / pencil.

I don't like much in my pockets at all. I have a Crown Royal bag I keep in my golf bag in which I store my watch, ring, keys, change, pocket knife, etc... I take this stuff out of my pockets at the car and put them in the RC bag. When I'm done playing I take the tees, ball mark repair tool, etc... out of my pockets and put them in the RC bag ready for my next round.

While playing I keep only a few tees, a ball mark repair tool with ball marker, and a provisional ball in my right front pocket. My money clip is in my left.

Since I started using a bagboy push cart, I find I can keep a lot more of that stuff at the ready on the cart.

In my right front pocket I always have a pitch mark repair tool, a 1 and 2 cent coin (I use the 1 cent on putts under 10 feet because I'm looking to 1 putt and the 2 cent coin on putts over 10 feet because I want to 2 putt), at the start of the round I have 1 long tee and 2 short ones although after the first hole this varies and I also have a handkerchief I use for cleaning my ball (not blowing my nose).

In my back right pocket I have my yardage book for the course and I slip my scorecard inside the book and I have a mechanical pencil clipped to the cover of the book.

I have nothing at all in any other pocket.

That is exactly how I play. 1 tee only, no wallet, cellphone, watch, extra balls, etc.

Right pocket...Divot Repair Tool and Ballzee, a provisional ball if I don't think I will be able to find my ball after a shot.

Left pocket...usually nothing, maybe a tee sometimes or a pencil. I don't like anything in this pocket, especially a ball as it distracts me on my follow through

right rear...wallet and on good days...my playing partner's money...but that is very few and far between.

Left rear...glove on green if I did not velcro it to my bag when grabbing my putter, and possible a small spiral notebook.

Fun, interesting question.

Left front - cash in a heavy silver money clip; right front - two zero friction tees and a couple of quarters; left rear - Boy Scout ball and glove when not donned; right rear (when walking) - scorecard and pencil

Watch, wallet, and keys go in the "valuables pocket" in my bag.

    • Thank you! Got out for a few holes so it was a good day in spite of work!
    • 2/25: Played two rounds today with dad at a different course than usual. Shot 96 and 93. A few nice strings of pars and made several amazing putts (). Mostly bogeys other than that but managed a couple of absolute blow-up holes in each round that helped to guarantee 90+ scores from an otherwise very nice day of golf. I could complain about "sand-traps" sans-a-single-spec-of-sand with 10-foot wide puddles in them, or mushy fairways, or waiting 5-minutes for the 4-some in front of you on every shot, but there wasn't a notes field on the scorecard.  Practice is paying off, though. Hit my drives farther than ever, draws when I wanted them, and the fade didn't let me down when I needed it. 3/4 "flighted" shots are the new go-to approach of choice all the way out to 160+ with my 3-iron, and (n)GIRs have jumped up considerably. I've rambled on about my short-game improvements before, but it continues. Holed a pitch shot from about 10 yards and stopped 2 others 6 inches from the pin. Gotta play some more rounds from the front so I get used to stringing pars together. Realized today that I don't just get nervous about it, I also get cocky. Weird combination. 
    • I really like the travel of the sweetspot on the backswing. Kinda Nicklaus-esque.   They just stall a bit and it happens after impact. Can see how the belt loops are rotating all the way to impact.
    • At the top level the men may still be much better than the women at putting. Paige McKenzie once talked about how she played against some college guys who destroyed her on putting and she thought she was pretty good relative to her peers. I expect the best pro women ballstrikers have to work even less on putting to compete successfully than the guys where every edge is crucial just to get a card and make cuts. I love to watch Rory and DJ crank it out there. But I also get a kick out of Jim Furyk and Mo Martin's precision oriented play. It's all good. If they want to make accuracy more important for PGA players, all they have to do is grow the average event rough up a bit more so there's more of a penalty on every errant shot on the loss of spin and swing/ball speed reduction. Those are real issues for the sport...at least for facilities that don't cater to higher income golfers.
    • I have the Zepp 2 Golf (the round sensor).    Ive read the manual multiple times, and have approximately 500 ball strikes.    As I'm new to golf I can't seriously vouch for its accuracy, but I will say this: it's helping me improve my golf swing.    The 3D swing analysis is a great tool as is the swing comparison capability. In my opinion once you learn about what the tool measures and how it can be quite effective it    However, I do have a question: In the daily swings window, what does the red "P" next to the specific swing data mean?   Please and Thanks for any input.    V/R,  Chris
