Must have accessories?

82 posts in this topic

I'm a pretty vanilla guy when it comes to my bag. 14 clubs, balls, tees, divot repair, older laser range finder, glove, club brush, towel, ball marker.

There are endless accessories though from obvious things like GPS to more obscure things like magnetic bracelets.

Is there anything you guys have that you now can't live without? Something I am leaving out here or missing out on?

I would feel lost without my skycaddie! Yardage markers are great but they always put them in the fairway! And they're really not that accurate when I'm hitting back to the other fairway. I also picked up a ballzee this year, it's great on the greens!

There really isn't anything I can't live without. Most of the time the only things I use during a round is clubs, balls, tees, divot tool w/ball marker and wet towel. Lately I've been using the golflogix ph app. I like to keep my routine simple. Fidgeting with stuff kills my concentration. I do wear an ionic bracelet, probably snake oil but I've been wearing those for a long time. Don't consider it a golf related item.

I have to have a hat-clip ball marker. I hate digging through my pockets. It's sort of a laziness/pet peeve sort of thing. But also, my Golfshot GPS app on my iPhone, or the SkyDroid app on my Droid. Love them both.

I got pretty much the same thing that the OP has... in addition to the clubs, tees, and balls I got some ball markers (a SandTrap one and a burger coin from In-N-Out where I'm a manager), Leupold rangefinder, sun screen, and some tape for blisters/cuts.

i keep it pretty stripped down.  clubs, tees, balls, a couple of coins in my pocket for ball marks, and a towel if it's rained recently.  i have a skycaddie, but a lot of the time i don't even use it.  i fancy myself pretty good at picking out the proper club just by looking at the lay of the land and getting a general bearing off yardage markers.

I have a small pocket brush.  I found it laying on the ground at a course in high school... And I've been using it for the last ~15yrs.

Here is what it looks like - but the one I have is green.  Probably one of the best finds I've made - in terms of something I use regularly.

I have a divot repair tool that fits nicely on the inside of my pocket, a few quarters to mark my ball.

A few tee's - one being a Bugle Tee for the driver.

I also use my Golfshot GPS which is on my iPhone.  My favorite towel is a Club Glove.

I also have been carrying a ripcord in my bag to help stretch/warm up my muscles (back/bi/tris) before I start swinging on early morning rounds.

Hat... w/ Ohio State ball marker attached.

A couple of towels. Usually a small one that I'll wet and use to clean ball. My players towel to keep me clean and a general clean everything towel.

Clubs cleaner tool.

I always keep a couple of tees in my pocket for divot repair or for the guys who always seem to not have one.

I always have an extra ball in my pocket.

I have at least 6 balls in my bag before round, usually more like 12.

I keep a koozie or three in my bag for drink protection.

I have several bags of snacks I carry.

I even have a roll of toilet paper... emergency use only!

Several gloves, I rotate gloves every couple of holes. they seem to last longer this way...

Na most people fail and think it's an Oklahoma marker... I have two actually and they are grey with the red O or red with a grey O. The UT turds smart off about OU sucks and just roll with like yeha, they are trash... The confusion sets in and I explain that it's not OU and then their like ok... uh...

As a matter of fact with all the Ohio stuff I have no one has ever made a cheater comment to me or about the recent events. Trading yellow wind pants for tats is cheating? /discussion

Well I have to say my Texas Tech ball mark is clearly the reason I beat everyone I play with.

But seriously, you should carry a small first-aid kit. I also carry a notebook with course yardages and personal notes to myself.

I use an Ohio State cart bag and the only flak I catch is from Michigan fans.....sometimes. GO BUCKS!!!!!

On topic: Only must haves and never forgets is my 1981 quarter with my initials stamped in it which I have used for a ball marker since the first time I set foot on a course. I've been flat broke and tempted to use it for a pop a couple times and didn't. I've gone back to a course to retrieve it after it fell out of my pocket into the seat of the cart I was using. Accidentally gave it as change to buy something but its so dark and worn from my pocket that the cashier or I notice it and do a double take.

My shirts have sleeves... that's about all the first aid I'll need. Patch it up and drive back to the club house lol.

I do have a folder in my bag that I have yardage books for most courses. I play most courses regularly, therefore I don't need the books most of the time. Most new courses I hit up, I take a look at scorecard online or even make my own book via google earth. Here's a sample of what I put together.

    • I don't know anyone personally, but I think we've all heard a story about some guy who was in the middle of some tournament, hit a bad shot and proceeded to throw his clubs in the pond then walked off the course never to play again.
    • Oh yeah, I've know several. Not really giving up the game entirerly, but giving up on going pro. They went on mini tours or play events the (now) web.com tour and just give up after a year or so. They didn't really have a gauge of how much time and skill it really takes to make a living playing golf. If you dont win or make a name for yourself in the college ranks or big international am tournaments, you're really behind the 8ball. 
    • The video was not made for this discussion but a good chunk of it applies - just because you lift your heel off the ground doesn't mean you transfer 95% of your weight right. That's what you had to say in response to "I don't see how the left knee moves as a point of contention"? Again, the other thread existed because there was a huge myth out there about maintaining the same flex in the trail knee. No such myth or disparity exists re: the lead knee. Her head doesn't move off the ball much (well within the "steady head" idea, particularly with a driver), of course she has some tilt away from the target - because her hips don't sway back, and her weight shifts slightly to the right. Very little more than someone with a "modern" golf swing. It's not the only place there's "tension." And no, "loaded" may be a common word, but it can have a bunch of meanings. Your right leg is not the only thing that's "loaded" in ANY full swing in golf. Again, the wrists, the arm across the chest, the elbow, your ankles, your torso is turned… all can be "loaded." That's my point. One of 'em anyway. I haven't attacked whatever it is you're trying to talk about. I am, however, trying to suss out what it is you're trying to talk about. Because if it's "the left knee should be allowed, sometimes, to move back to the right" then I don't think you'll find much disagreement. You seem to think it's more than that, though. I don't think they did either, but the reasons they did it may have changed, or the amount of understanding we have of the golf swing has certainly changed, or what's important in the golf swing may have changed, or a bunch of other things. While writing this, @billchao answered that pretty well too, IMO. I guess, since I don't know what you're actually trying to convey here, I'll drop out for now until you can figure out what it is you're trying to say.
    • I could also just learn to perfect my draw as the article said. Become good/great at a certain shot type. 
    • From a fellow Sconnie, welcome to the site.  Many, many golfers play fades from a closed stance.  They are mostly pull slicers.  Basically your club face is just closed in relation to the path you are swinging on.  Maybe start a swing thread sometime if you want and someone can try and help.  Otherwise there is not really much anyone can tell you.  Hope you stick around and become involved in the site.
