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.

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.

    • Final chapter - mystery solved......and boy am I a "dufus".......like "DUH".... The hosel adapter for Tour Edge Exotics has a short 1.75 inch sleeve that slips over the attachment screw to hold the screw straight (and prevent cross threading I presume).  Somehow when the shaft was removed, the sleeve had slid up into the shaft, hidden from view. The shaft (with hidden sleeve) was then installed into another standard head and during installation, had gotten loose and was free to slide up and down the shaft. When I bonded the shaft to the head, I had given it a small tap on the grip end to seat the shaft which is recommended practice by some fitters. This action would have presumably forced the sleeve up in the shaft and due to larger diameter of the shaft, was free to slide. I don't feel too bad however, as I had made a telephone call to a local fitter, and he was dumfounded as well. 
    • I think a qualified fitter should be able to provide that info! Of course, I have to allow for the fact that, like a medical diagnosis, @Spring1 is simply looking for a second opinion, albeit from complete and total strangers who have never seen him swing a club. Look, @Spring1, I'm not trying to be rude here, nor is anyone else. It's just that your question confuses us a bit. And don't let this "grilling" scare you away. We're honestly curious and would like to help. FWIW, graphite shafts are lighter than steel. So, if you stick the same length graphite into a formerly steel shafted iron, it's going to monkey with the swingweight. It will make it lighter! To compensate, most manufacturers will make the graphite shafted clubs slightly longer to get the swingweight back up. The question is whether or not you can hit those longer irons as accurately as the originals. You should be allowed to hit both models and make a decision from that. And, I notice that you're a 39, and you mentioned the Ping brand in particular. So, I'm guessing this was a "golf store" fitting, and not a "custom clubmaker" fitting. Then another possibility presents itself. Maybe @Spring1 is wondering whether the store "fitter" is trying to upsell him into something more expensive, or something they need to move! All that matters is performance. Do the clubs work for you? And, of course, I could be entirely wrong about everything I've typed above and made a complete fool of myself! But then, I (and we) could use a bit more info.
    • Saw something intresting during my round the other day.my home club here in new zealand has a pretty relaxed dress code.and I was in my normal sort of outfit for a warm day.plain shorts,and a plain blue Nike t-shirt with no graphics or logos on it.no knee length white socks thou lol.and saw a visitor to our club dressed in golf pants and a polo. But his polo had a big skull and crossbones on it with the skull smoking.just playing devils advocate here,but it would be intresting to see what happened if he turned up at the only course in our area that stipulates a collar.ild argue that a plain t-shirt looks a lot better.(all thou as i said in the original post i always stick a polo on when i play at that club)
    • He's still young too thou,is it a case of just needing to mature a bit.and get a bit more experience.(how old is he exactly i know his early 20s?) I know he's not the same type of players but i seem to remember sergio garcia having a lot of blow up holes when he was younger,and losing his temper a lot more over it.and he seems to have matured into a much more composed player these days. That said ild take Jordan's game over mine in a heartbeat 
    • Could be the greens you play.  There is one course I play ocassionally that has greens that are not too fast but are hard.  It's hard to make a ball mark, it's hard to stop the ball.  You have to try to adjust to the roll.
