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.

    • This will happen to me when I have the optimal club release. My distance hog is that I don't release the club well into the ball, and I kind of just pull it through. It works, but when I relax and get a good swing with a great controlled release through my hands I can feel the difference and it does go MUCH farther. 
    • A couple of videos and pictures from Turnberry yesterday - didn't play brilliantly, but managed +12 in serious wind, particularly on the front nine. Putting was hard with the new greens and I three putted twice on the front nine for the first time in ages. I also found it very hard in the wind and kept trying to fight it, overthinking things rather than sticking to what I was comfortable with. As a result, I only really found my game with a few holes to play. Highlights were a birdie on the par 5 eighth, an awesome drive on the 10th, which I got on camera, and making the Tom Watson 2009 up and down, having gone over the back as well from near the plaque . The course itself was incredible - the greens haven't yet fully settled in and so there are different speeds all over the place, but it's such a good test. If you don't find the fairway, you can't score.   Very short swings due to crazy amount of wind! Fourth green - with the wind, you have to start the ball off the left of it, pretty much on the ocean...: Second shot into the 7th green. Didn't make the putt (story of the day!): View from the new championship tee for the 9th: Panoramic view from the 10th green. Arguably the most scenic par five anywhere: My Tom Watson 2009 moment captured (sort of - plaque, tee shot and where my 6 iron over the back finished up): Not worth the money, I don't think - hard for it to ever be the case at the price, but I loved every minute of it. It's a great course and deserves to have the Open back soon. Western Gailes today and hopefully my swing is on better form!

    • Count me in. Charlotte is only about an hour away for me, which is no problem.
    • I hit whatever the current TM model was in the spring but really like the AP1's. But I'll do a proper unbiased fitting and see what the results are as in both instances for iron fittings, it's been done by Titleist reps.
