It can be cool or just fun to have. My favorite things are a stupid ball marker i found on the links in carmel, turned it in to the lost and found and when no one claimed it they sent it to me i think its cool.

My divot repair tool, my dad gave it to me when I was young. He told me "If you ever want to beat me, you should learn to use this." It's the first thing I take out and first thing I put away.

Probably my putter.  SC Newport 2.  My ball marker from Mayakoba is #2.  I played there a few times on my honeymoon.

If my wife wouldn't pitch a fit, I'd sleep with my wedges.....

Failing that, I also have to fall back on the silly pitch-mark repair tool that I've had more than 30 years.

this isn't an answer to your question at all.

If you consider golf clubs (and the associated peripherals) nothing more than tools of the trade, I consider the event of actually playing the prize.  In the same way that a carpenter doesn't show off his tools, but shoes off his finished work.  To me, the tools change, get replaced, upgraded, etc.  The event, spending a day walking around in a park like setting.  At the least spending it with like minded individuals (fellow golfers) and even better when you are amongst family and friends.  To clear your head of every stress in life, clearing your head, and focusing on the simple task of placing a small dimpled ball into a slightly larger hole several hundred yards away.

So I guess to me, my favorite golf equipment isn't a piece of equipment at all.  Its the experience, its hitting the wedge close and sinking the putt to save par.  It's the beer that you share with your playing partners after the round to reminisce about the good shots, and laugh about the bad shots.

If that answer is too Walt Whitman, than the most important accessory of the golf game is the drink holder, be it the one on my pull cart, or the one in my riding cart.

Ten years or so ago my dad made me a custom ball mark fixer.  Not only does it work great but he put my initials on it.  Very special to me.

It would be my divnick. The ultimate 1-club that replaces all clubs in your bag. It has a telescopic shaft and when collapsed, it fits in a fanny pack.

Just drove a Garia golf cart down Park Lane in London, if you want to travel in style, I would recommend this..

New to me Callaway FT-IQ Fubuki Driver.....was hitting it dead straight all round yesterday

Also bought a brand new Odyssey White Hot XG Putter that I have been playing very well with.

Favorite non-golf related item, but in my bag --> I have an old Portuguese Escudo coin that I use as a ball marker.

Favorite item is my Nickent Evolver Driver, especially with the UST Proforce V2HL Shaft.  Second favorite would be the divot tool I got when I played Pebble Beach.  Now that it's about $600 to play (unless you stay at the Lodge) I've probably played it for the last time, since I don't have quite the game that I used to have.

Currently I would have to say my Game Golf tracking system. I have always wanted to know my club yardage under actual playing conditions. Hitting balls from a flat lie on a range is just not the same. The system allows me to relive the round and analyze the results. I can chart my progress and easily measure my improvement.

I like golf "stuff".

The irons and putter in my sig have been with me for 35 years, and my main wedge about 20. I recently aquired a  full leather cart bag  at a bargain. I have been playing mostly vintage clubs lately, meaning wood woods. Each one is unique, so when you find one that works, it becomes sort of special. The ones in my sig are becoming pretty reliable.

I picked up a nice set of Macgregor VIP 90-92 remakes a few months ago, but haven't played them yet. They need grips before being played. If they play as good as they look, they might become treasured.

I have several little items like ball markers and repair tools that were given to me by my kids, and of course those are cherished.

One of my most used pieces of gear... An Lynx 8 iron that was cut down to a kids length, about a 25" shaft, and re-gripped.  I bought it in a used bin for $5.  I can swing it in my office without hitting the ceilings or walls.

I think mine is my game golf too, me second favorite is my rbz 3 wood I hit that thing so well it's hard not to love it.

Probably my Bushnell range finder is first and Golf Shot app would be second. They help me get as close to a caddie as I can get on the course.

I like non-club-gear and got lots of it, but my favourite item has to be my 8-iron. I just love hitting that club.

    • I think an active lead knee (or both knees) certainly helps with sequencing. In order for the knee to move forward and around (and straighten) it helps for it to gain some flex and rotate internally on the backswing. Creates some "flow". I basically described what I mean by active knee movement in my previous post in this thread. Like I said, doing the knee stuff in of itself might not be the answer, have to consider how the torso is working to facilitate the motion/pieces. While I love Jack's swing and think there is a lot we can learn from it, he was a special players and he would have been just as good with a swing where he kept the lead heel planted.
    • Quality over quantity! I understand the concept, but 2 grand for 3 wedges? There's no way they out perform vokey or any of your other major wedges enough to warrant those kind of prices! That's just my opinion. You're 100% correct there are people with money to blow who will buy them just to say they did. IMO it's all about the player. Spieth for example could take any wedge and most likely perform better than I ever will be able to. Which I'm sure you will agree to some extent. Just blows my mind at the cost! 
    • I'm still putting my money on you being the bigger head case.  
    • The dude has won 2 majors with glaringly less talent than the other top players....I don't think that happens to a head case. People tend to think otherwise at times because he wears his emotions on his sleeve so vividly, but Spieth's mental game is still more of an asset than anything else for him IMO. With his relatively limited talent, you don't accomplish things that only Jack, Tiger, and Seve have done if you're truly a head case. Reality vs. perception difference here.
    • The site of the 2017 U.S. Open is near my old stomping grounds...I was born about 30 min. away from where Erin Hills was eventually built.  I moved from that area long before the course was even planned, so I've never been there or played it or anything, but I learned some interesting things this evening. I have a good friend up there who works for a limo/shuttle company, and he has been driving people from Madison, Milwaukee and O'Hare to Erin Hills for several days, and he made several comments on how remote the golf course is.  It might not be exactly in the middle of nowhere, but apparently a short drive would get you there. There is only one way in, and one way out.  And these are country roads, not four-lane highways. They announced this site would host the U.S. Open in 2010...seven years ago, and they couldn't get a better road system in place?  I thought that was one of the things that they took into consideration when they scout potential sites?  It sounds like this course was earmarked to host USGA events before it was even built, so if they set out to design a course that would one day host a major, why wouldn't the road infrastructure be included? Anyway, the course itself is a monster...or at least can be, when the stretch it out.  From the blacks it plays 7,800 yds, but it looks like it will play about 7,700 during the tournament.  All four par 5s are over 600 yds, two par 4s are over 500 yds, and two others are over 480.  This is the first time in many years the course will play to a par of 72, which actually gives the guys a chance to make up some ground.
