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 :-)

    • Not an individual tournament but with a partner(s), sure. Even if it's another low handicapper we can compete if we play well but most likely won't win. I agree with you what you're saying. Most of the club tournaments I play in have a gross division so it's not a big deal. One tournament where I've seen low handicappers have an advantage is a format where teams are divided into flights based on combined handicap. If you win that flight you play against the winners of the other flights in a horserace where strokes are greatly reduced. Most of the horse races I've seen or been a part of of are won by teams from the first two flights, the lower handicap flights.
    • Checked if my shoulders were too flat in a mirror. Apparently not as bad as I thought. I'd like to be more conscious of it before tomorrow's lesson. Going to do a bunch of slow movements through the evening and tomorrow morning then progressively speed up and see if everything still looks reasonable with a full speed swing. . .
    • I've never actually met a golfer who swings differently when under pressure, that is, if he can swing to his handicap at all? Golf starts with a good swing, without that you've got no game.   Yes, but the player is dialing things in at a range. On the course everything is much harder because you only hit any club once per 10 to 15 minutes or something like that.   There's no mental aspect when you have a chance to hit ball after ball successively from the shortest club to the longest one. On the range you're dialed in. That's why many people hit well on the range and not so well on the course.   If you do this with a proper swing, then I'd imagine yes. You'd have a good swing. That good swing in turn will give you more confidence than any sort of motivational speech.   I've never been able to will the ball to go where I want it to, and don't know anyone who can do that without the physical training required to develop a decent swing.
    • This.  Over the years we've heard so much about golf and sports being mental but where are the great tips and instruction on the mental side of the game?  I've read some books on the subject but so far not by anyone who sounded like they actually played golf.  Here's one mental thing that I've done to help my game, imo:   While getting into my address position I look long at my target, glance at the ball to get feet and ball position aligned.  One more good look at the target and when I look back to the ball I begin my swing almost immediately.  This keeps tension from creeping into my muscles by staying too long at address thinking about too many things.  It also seems to help me stay more alert during the swing, rather than getting all tense and just hitting a start/panic button.  To me, this is part of the mental game and is one way the mind can make a huge difference in shot result.
