Other than clubs, what's in your bag and where do you keep it?

Recommended Posts

Artimas    5

My bag is a mess. I have plastic bags with tees, gloves, markers, sharpies, etc.

I have random balls in 1 pocket, I have suntan and bug spray in another, I have a rain suit and hat in another.

Whenever I get to the course I'm rummaging around trying to find everything.

I'd like ideas for keeping the stuff other than my clubs organized and ready to go, and like to know what you think I really need to bring with me in the bag.

Thanks.

My bag is not very organized either but I really only have to go to 2 pockets to play. Grab everything out of one and a ball out of another.

One small pocket is for the small things I know I will want to put in my pocket every single time I play: Ball mark fixer, a few coins, my GPS, and some long and short tees.

Another small pocket is for my camera, my cell phone, my car keys, a sharpie, and a couple of pencils.

One pocket is for Pro V1 golf balls and another is for cheaper golf balls.

The big pocket in the back is the disaster area: Top cover for bag, spare towels, a wind breaker jacket, pull-over sweater, couple of bags of tees, right and left baseball gloves (not sure why I put those in there because I've never used a glove in golf or baseball...SMH), the tool for changing the face angle on my driver (also completely unnecessary because I never change it), a few packs of peanut butter crackers (mostly for other people since I don't eat on the course unless I'm pulling an "all dayer"), and a couple of Black Raspberry drinks.

My main bag has 2 zip pockets, the ball pocket and the full length side pocket. In the ball pocket are--balls. In the side pocket, I keep a ziploc bag that has regular and broken tees, a few coins, a scoring pencil, ball markers, ball mark repair tools, and a sharpie. I have attached a caribiner inside the pocket on which I clip my keys. My wallet goes in the bottom of this pocket. The cell phone and glasses usually stay in the trunk of the car. Oh, also in the big pocket is another ziploc full of new tees.

    • Oh, I see....good idea. I copied it and works great.  I simply took two screw eyes, screwed into the end of a real feel mat, and then ran two small, elastic shock cards (1/4 inch with plastic ball ends) through the eyes, tied the other ends together and secured the middle of  this "loop" under a rubber wooden tee holder secured by a galvlanized nail.  A couple of ball bungies would also do the trick. Took all of 40 seconds to make. Since mine is on top of artificial turf, I did not want to punch any large holes that a large plastic lawn spike would make. The small nail makes a negligible hole and dissappears once the nail is removed if you need to move the mat. Thanks for the idea.
    • Obviously I can't offer much in the way of advice but in the last year my 5w has gone from one of my most trusted clubs to one that causes anxiety. What has helped me is coming down at a slightly steeper angle of attack and simply concentrating on hitting a bit more down on the ball... not like an iron, but less of that "sweeping" attack as is often suggested. Good luck and I hope someone can provide some useful advice.
    • I am extremely comfortable chipping from the rough compared to the fairway. I am not exactly sure why, and I know I need to get some lessons. (I plan on getting some in the spring since its already so late in year up here in PA.) In my approach I would much rather put it left, right, or far then to leave it short. I feel this way because its a lot easier to get the ball up and down sitting right were you want it. I am talking from within 40 yards. When in the fairway I have distance control problems within 40 yards. I feel its because of the inconsistency of the launch angle. If I hit it to hard the angle is to low and I launch over the green and if I hit it to soft the angle is to high and just comes up short.  I just wanted to see if anyone else felt the same way or if this was typical for a high handicapper to like the rough from within 40 yards?
    • That's a substantial improvement. I'm certain I won't experience any increase in distance but at this point, distance isn't even on the radar. I practiced a bit more tonight and decided shortening the driver won't fix my issues. I have to swing sooooo slow to get decent ball flight. As a result, I'm losing 10 - 20 yards from what GameGolf said I was averaging (219). 
    • I play around 3 times a week and usually score in the 78-83 range with a few outliers, both better and worse. In the last two weeks or so, I have seen the worst round in probably 5 years or more, a really unusual 111 (was 102 ESC'd) and it was the only score above 98 this year out of 100 rounds or so. After a redeeming 79, I shot another score in the 90s, at 95 (92 ESC'd). Both of the stinkers had some horrendous fairway woods, some even leading to penalty strokes (hit of the very end of the toe, dead right), with both the 5 wood and the 3 wood. I spent some time on the range trying to work this out, putting the ball on a peg at first, and lowering it progressively until the ball sits on the ground. While I am able to hit somewhat decently from a tee somewhat raised (but not quite as nicely as I was able to before this ongoing episode), I am totally unable to hit the ball sitting on the ground. Nearly every shot is topped and some are nearly whiffed! The 5 wood is/was one of my favorite clubs... I went out and played another round where the short game saved me with an 81, but once again mishit severely most of my fairway woods shots. For some reason, one was ok with the 5 wood. I am leaving the 3 wood in the bag until this is sorted out, but confidence has really taken a toll... I went online and looked for "topped fairway wood" and found several things to be mindful of. Perhaps I am swaying a bit on the takeaway and not getting back to the ball or hanging back. Perhaps the ball position is too far forward or the strike too level or too steep? I am not feeling like I am doing anything different from before, when I had no problem with that shot. So what gives? All in my head? Thanks for your insight.
