Has anyone made a purchase that your foursome looks at you and wonders "what is that?" or "why in the world did you buy that?"  I don't mean any clubs or golf balls.  If I'm not making any sense, here's my example:

My friends all shake their hands and give me questioning looks when I use it.  I admit that I rarely use it and I purchased it on a whim but am I the only one with a purchase that give pause to the others in your group?

I recently played with a guy that had something rigged up to his pull cart to hold his burning cigarettes. The only time one wasn't in his hands or lips was when he took a shot.

I have a little plastic thing that clips to my bag and holds my tees all nice and pretty. I get made fun of for it.

A friend of mine in college had a plastic hand to keep his glove on strapped to his bag.

The guys I play with are pretty brutal on each other. Being caught with any silly golf accessory will get you the razzing of your life. We had a guy show up with iron covers for one of our games and we nearly had him in tears, needless to say it was the last time we saw them. Heck, having a ball retriever in your bag is a faux pas punishable by death! :-P

I guess the weirdest thing is that I have two towels?  lol

I have a miniature golf bag hanging off of my real golf bag....it is a cigar humidor and the "pouch" on the front of it holds lighters, cutters etc.

Essential equipment, you understand....

Oh God... I forgot about the iron covers and ball retriever.  He had those too.

As for two towels, ain't nothing wrong with that.  One for wiping clubheads and one for wiping grips and hands.

Heck, I have 3 towels hanging from mine. 1 that I get damp before the game to help clean the clubs, another that I use to dry the clubs, and one that I use for my hands and grips.

I guess that only odd thing I have in my bag is a swing trainer club. It's weighted and has a training grip. It technically gives me 15 clubs, but I never use it except at the range, and I just don't feel like taking it out. If I was playing a tourney or something like that I would take it out. But I always just play friendly games for fun.

I don't have anything too odd. The oddest thing might be my cleat fixing tool... I have had a habit of losing cleats mid-round, which is why I also keep replacement cleats in my bag.

I have two towels, one is attached to my bag and the other is loose so I can carry it onto the green to wipe my ball.

I have one of these on my bag.... because I have an older buddy who always greets me with "Hey, you got your balls out of your wife's purse today?" or "Hey, you got your balls back, what's up? glad you could make it!"

Now everyone knows my balls are actually on my bag!

    • Congrats to Schauffele! May not be a major but it ranks high on the list of a golfers resume. It does with me anyway.....
    • Mine was my mother.  She was a very angry person with a temper.   Golf was not her game.  She took it up to spend time with me when I was a teenager, after I started playing when I was a caddie. she had a violent, slashing swing.   Her clubs were a set of old MacGregor blades and she would hit the 2-iron a lot off the tee.   It would go far, but rarely where she wanted.  Seriously, it was like some type of hockey motion. she was easily frustrated and had zero short game.  She would ping pong back and forth across the green because her chipping miss was blading the ball.  She’d get mad, start swearing and sometimes take 4 chips/pitches around the green.  Several times I’d have to apologize because she’d get mad and swear so much.  If she was in a bunker, forget it.  Just run! Her main quirk was water though.   It could be a lake or a 2 foot wide stream in front of her.  She’d find it.   We were in Myrtle Beach at Wild Wing Hummingbird years ago and there is a creek hat winds through.  She was about 20 feet in front of he creek that was only a couple of feet deep in front of her.  Sure enough, she topped it and it went in the creek, carried away by the current.   She was super pissed and I couldn’t stop laughing.   We didn’t talk for most of the rest of the day. 
    • Played in an event with a pair that both felt the need to stretch and practically do calisthenics on the first tee right behind me from my warm up, address and right through my swing. I guess they didn’t arrive early enough. It was almost like a parody sketch.    one of the guys was a super nervous sort that could not be still or refrain from fidgeting. He liked to stand on the green behind the flag and be in constant motion. I typically don’t mind where people stand or even if they move around a little, but this was almost like the student section waving giant foam fingers when the opponent is attempting a field goal, extra point, or foul shot. he seemed like a nice guy, just oblivious 
    • Day 67, July 31, 2021 More three-quarter swing stuff today. I really am trying to shorten the backswing.
    • What a shot into 18 with all that pressure.  Great playing Xander.
