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

28 posts in this topic

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.

Pocket 1 - reserved for wallet, watch, car keys, and wedding ring Pocket 2 - FULL of tees Pocket 3 - extra towels, couple of training aids Pocket 4 - ball markers, gloves, sharpies, extra cleats for shoes, driver wrench Pocket 5 - balls Pocket 6 - rain suit Pocket 7 - Advil, gum, sunscreen, spare change Pocket 8 - 2 bottles of water

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.

    • Yep! I have both a FJ jacket and pants in rainwear that I bought years ago. I don't use them very often so they've lasted a long time. But, they're heavy and hot! They were made before GoreTex and other waterproof, breathable fabrics. My advice? Get the absolute best you can afford! They will last you a long time, they will keep you comfortable, they will be light, and they won't impede your swing very much.
    • Thanks for all the responses. I think this boils down to the context of the situation. I had two of the foursome busting chops about hitting out of order on previous holes. Then the first time it was mildly inconvenient for them to wait, the holed out just as i hit the green. Mind you.  This wasnt an "adventure" hole.. I hit the green on stroke 5 because of a flub shot that went about 10 ft. And an errant approach that left me about 10 yards short of the green. In any other case I agree that its perfectly fine to hit when ready, but not if you complain about hitting out of order. I guess to paint the picture, one whipped a club on the 3rd hole due to sculling a shout out of the bunker.. on another hole had one of them walking towards green right in front of my approach.. he nicely moved about 3 yards to the right as i asked him to move. As karma would have it, i hit the shot straight at him and nearly hit him.. these were friends of mine.. so a lesson learned to play golf with different friends..
    • Picked one up and checked it out in a store the other day. First thing I noticed about it was how heavy it was. Reminded me of when I went out for the HS golf team, and the coach had a Driver with a solid steel head on it. He advised us that we were NOT to hit drives with it! It was for warm up only. Being as heavy as it is, I think the main benefit to it might be that it slows your transition from backswing to downswing. There's a whole lot of guys who could use that!
    • OK, this kind of clears things up for me. I thought you might have been trying to take close ups of clubheads impacting golf balls. In that case you'd need something numbering in the several thousands of fps! If all you need is to look at swings I'd say anything the budget allows should suffice. Consider the 960fps system mentioned. If a golf swing takes about I second, at a playback rate of 30fps, that gives you a swing video of 32 seconds in length. Plenty long enough to see the golfer's bodily motions. Considering how small the clubhead will appear when videoing the entire golfer, I don't know that fps is the main consideration. It could be pixel count and the quality of the lenses. This reminds me of my "audiophile" days when cassette tapes were all the rage. I had a BIC deck that could record at 7 1/2 ips (inches per second), and an Audiovox car player that could play back at that speed. The sound quality was amazing! You were putting the same amount of info into twice as much space! There was so much more room!
    • Wondered how and where achievements came from. I've broken par,  ( handicap is +3) 2 eagles on par 5's so far this year Hole in one 2 years ago on vacation in Arizona at Karsten ASU course.  My first one.
