I have a ton of crap in my bag...

- Aimpoint book

- Tee's

- Divot repair tool

- Ball marker + lots of coins/change

- ~ 15 Balls - I always have to many which weighs down my bag (I'm an idiot)

- Gloves (I don't wear a glove - but just incase it gets really humid and my hands start slipping - or if I get a nasty blister I'll throw a glove on to finish my round)

- Winter gloves

- Winter hat

- Rain hood cover for my clubs

- Umbrella

- Towels (in case it rains - I've got backup)

- Vanity bag to hold watch, ring, keys, etc, etc..

- Plastic alignment aid marker tool

- Sharpies to mark my golf ball(s)

Things I need to add... USGA rule book.  I just played in a tournament last weekend and one of my playing partners had one.  And it came in great use on one of the holes where we weren't sure the deal with regard to his provisional ball.  He hit his first ball into the water on the right.  His provisional ball into the water on the left.  Then decided to take a drop and from where his first ball went into the water hazard.  I wasn't sure if he could do that - but we looked it up and he was entitled to play his first ball (hitting three) based on it entering the hazard.

Damn, you actually made me think about this. I have accumulated all the above plus a windbreaker and alignment sticks. I think it is time to empty the bag and only carry what I really need which is like half of this sh!t. No wonder my bag is so heavy.

I'll try to avoid repeating the same old things everyone has in their bag..............

I keep 2-3 diet cokes in my bag when I play.  I do have an insulated pocket that I don't even use for them. I keep my wallet, keys and all that kind of stuff in that insulated pocket. LOL... I put my cokes in a different side pocket, but because it's tight.....they still stay very cold.    Some guys need a cigar, I need a dip!!  A keep a fresh can of Skoal in my bag.   I also carry a spare battery for my laser......

Hmmmmmm what else?  I keep a lot of things in the bag, but nothing too exciting.   Advil is present......and Johnson&J; first aid tape is an absolute must.  I use the tape for every round, and the generic #$$% doesn't stick...........it has to be J&J.;  Generic is a big no-no!! That stuff is garbage...............

Hmmm......spare pencils with erasers...gotta have those!  A digital camera also lives in my bag........so whenever the mood strikes, I can take golf course pics!!   I keep a lot of other things in my bag...some is seasonal and some is not, but all is very general.

How about putting some clubs in there! Rangefinder, pencil, yardage charts, snack bars, water bottle, alignment sticks.

Haha beat me to it. I was reading this and thinking "man, these guys have some solid handicaps to not even carry any clubs!"... Basically everything that I carry has been covered, but on tournament days I will throw an uncrustable PB&J; sandwich in there to thaw out and take a couple waters for the round.

Nothing new to add here other than a current rule book and an good chunk of 1 dollar bills for whatever game we're playing.

I hauled this am's bag during a pro-am and when I met him he had just come from the range, he dropped off his bag and took off to eat or something. So naturally I look in his bag and counted clubs, looked to see if he has balls and what not. Low and behold he had a full size, regulation video camera in his bag. It was the kind that held the old VHS tape in it. To make matters worse he had managed to make off with 3 bags of balls from the range and had them stuffed in there. Huge pro staff bag that weighed a ton. Needless to say he made a trip to the car.

Wow. Am I the only one who carries their own bag anymore? Either that, or I am really impressed at what you all can carry :-)

12 clubs

Hand towel from the bathroom towel set

3-4 balls

some tees

2 coins

4-5 gloves

A few excedrin and aleve and a small tube of superglue, in a plastic pill bottle

Old ping carry-lite bag. That's all I got. Used to carry a full size bath towel but those get real heavy when wet :-)

    • Willett's brother tried to be funny, but he was way offline. Bad effort in dry humor.. He should've not written anything like that. It's just going to make things harder for his brother and I'm sure Danny W. is gonna hear it from the crowds.
    • Willett's brother is not a part of the Ryder cup team. Willett made appologies: http://m.bbc.com/sport/golf/37500790
    • I like it. Especially compared to nearly all past US Ryder Cup kits. Actually before I dish out too much praise, do they have a huge Stars and Stripes flag emblazoned on the back?
    • I would say it depends on what club you're talking about. For drivers I would say that the best performing drivers of all time have been made within the last five years. Aerodynamics, material science, and the proliferation of launch monitors and data driven design have resulted in improvements across the board in distance and forgiveness as of late. I know that I personally saw a decent improvement on my G10 when I switched to a G30, in that I gained between 10 and 15 yards without sacrificing accuracy. This is on the high end of what aerodynamics can provide though, simply because higher swing speeds receive a greater benefit from decreased drag. Depending on the individual you may not see much difference so long as the driver itself was made within the last ten years or so. For irons I would be inclined to say that the main difference in the irons of yesteryear and the irons of today is forgiveness. The irons made today are much easier to hit than previous irons, simply because they aren't as drastically punishing on mis-hits as the old blades. The PING Eye2 irons seemed to be the first "widespread" GI iron that sparked the trend towards irons that were easier for the layman to hit. That being said, I found my s55 irons (their "blade" from several years ago) to be more forgiving than the Eye2's. Based on that and observations from other clubs I have hit I would say the average golfer would be best suited by irons made within the last 10 to 15 years that are in good condition with sharp grooves. If you play muscleback irons though, there's pretty much zero difference between modern "true" musclebacks and those of yore, though the current muscle-cavity irons (like the iBlade and MP-15) will likely be at least a bit easier to hit than the older blades while maintaining a similar style.  Wedges are the only thing that I would argue the "latest and greatest" provides a tangible benefit for. The reasoning for this is entirely different however, in that it's based solely off the condition of the grooves in older wedges. As wedges grow old, and get used, the grooves wear to the point that there becomes a noticeable performance difference - especially when playing out of the rough. For this reason alone do I say that the average golfer (assuming they golf at least once a week during the golfing season) is best suited by wedges no older than two or three years old.  Putters are the odd man out here. I don't think it matters in the slightest when your putter was manufactured, so long as you keep a reasonable grip on it so that it doesn't slip out of your hands. I personally am a fan of the newer milled putters for the feel they provide, but it doesn't mean I couldn't probably putt nearly as well with an original Anser putter in the same style. I think the average golfer is best suited by whatever putter style and features allow them to consistently roll the ball along their target line, with no age requirement. In summary, considering the advancement of technology, I would feel comfortable putting these "maximum age caps" on equipment for the average weekend golfer to get the most out of his/her game: Drivers: ~10 years old or newer Irons: ~15 years old or newer Wedges: ~3 years old or newer Putter: Whatever works best for you That being said, you may still enjoy the game with any kind of equipment out there. I just think that equipment that follows these guidelines will let the average weekend golfer get about as much as they can out of their game without necessarily breaking the bank. Like @iacas said, you may find incremental improvements by purchasing the R1 over an old G5 but the question then becomes whether or not this improvement is worth the price difference. This question can only be answered by the person buying the club. It can't be denied, however, that a driver from the 1960's will be severely outclassed by the G5 and the R1, making either of them a much better choice than the 1960's driver. Interestingly enough, I have had the desire to go the opposite way for a while now. I bought the s55's my last go around, and I'm thinking that my next set of irons will be a more "traditional" muscleback iron (since the s55 is mostly a CB), along the likes of the MP-4 irons by Mizuno. I hit the ball consistently enough that I don't care about the lack of forgiveness, and I believe that the wonderful look and feel of those irons, along with the little bit of extra vertical control (can thin it slightly to make punch shots even easier) would offset whatever I lose in forgiveness. I know that I would most certainly never go to an iron like the AP2, the G, or the M2. The chunky look of the club (along with the offset) gets into my head nowadays and makes me feel uncomfortable standing over the ball in a manner similar to how I used to be intimidated by the look of blades at address. I would gain forgiveness, but at the price of distance and trajectory control - an unacceptable trade for me considering I value distance and trajectory control much more highly than forgiveness.
    • My newest clubs are pretty old. Maybe 2006? I don't really remember. The other day, just for the heck of it,  I played using my old Bazooka Iron Woods. (2i-LW) Shot my normal score. Those Ironwoods are probably 15-16 years old. I don't think at this stage of my life, that a new set would make that much difference.
