Best place to keep Ball Markers in your golf bag?

Recommended Posts

I keep losing my ball markers in my golf bag... I tried to keep them in with my tees and repair tools, but they get beat up and still are a pain to find... any thoughts???

I have a belt clip thing that I bought for $15 or so when I first started golf. It has a ball-mark tool, room for two tees, and a quarter-sized ball marker magnet. That's what I use. I also have a nicer ball-mark tool that has a similarly sized magnet. No problems with them running off in the bag.

Hat clip. it's always right there. If you don't wear a hat, it clips on to the belt. Or use a dime.

I keep my tees, plastic repair tools and some change in a ziplock bag. Sometimes, the change is used for ball markers. I have a small velvet pouch I also keep in the ziplock bag, in which I keep a couple of special repair tools and ball markers.

I also like to use random round things for markers, like the punch out from a metal electrical box. No biggie if it gets scratched or lost.

I have a small, cloth bag that's no more than 2x3 inches.....I think a spare pair of Oakley lenses came in it. I keep my repair tool and my ball markers in it. My wedding band goes in it while I'm playing. It stays in a dedicated pocket in my bag along with my tees. Always easy to find.

I have a hat clip. I also keep my repair tools, tees and ball markers in separate small zippered bags. I've gotten lots of them over the years in goodie bags. The hat clip is excellent. Just reach up and get it. Magnetized.

MI keep mine in the valuables pocket in my golf bag. The system works this way. Start of round, place wallet car keys cell phone valuables pocket and remove pitch repair tool with ball marker into pants pocket. Then reverse at the conclusion of the round. I also sometimes wear a hat with built in marker as well. Since nothing else is stored in this pocket it is quick and easy to find. I have a sun mountian sync bag btw.

I just put it in a medium sized pocket on the side of the bag. Deep enough that I can't pull it out when getting other stuff in there.

What marker do you use that get banged up? I only use metal ones and they couldn't care less.

    • I started playing 3-4 months ago, having never been on a course of touched a golf club. I am really loving the game, but frustrated with my progress. On my little 9-hole course (2100 yards) I have gone from 82 to 63, but on my proper 9-hole (3200 yds) I am stuck at 75-80. I play 3 times a week (except some breaks when I travel for work), and take lessons. I can’t practice much more as the range seems to be contributing to various injuries. My technique is definitely improving, having more control around the green and at double/triple bogey on par 3s. My main issue seems to be getting to the green on par 4 and 5 where I often spend 6-7 strokes just getting there. My tee shots are inconsistent and max 120 yds, and even though I rarely shoot OB I often just shoot 50 yds ahead.  Looking at this forum, most people seem to struggle with the 100 to 120, so it is really discouraging to be at 160 (I count everything!). Did anyone start so badly, and was there a point in which things started coming together? Please share! At this point I still enjoy myself, but it’s starting to be demotivating. 
    • Brilliant info, I hadn't thought of that... Ha ha I'm afraid it does get very windy and wet here in Winter and I found that the hybrids were launching a little high and just wanted an iron that would keep it down a bit. I figured that the 24* driving iron with the bit of extra cavity/help in the back would be a solid option and then go from 5-PW with my set.   I think the shims work well ( from what I googled ) once the prep work is done correctly on the adapter and all parts are sanded to help better contact for the epoxy so should be good to go. Thank you @WUTiger appreciate the info
    • Not for me. If i duff my last few balls its just a case of "well they didnt go as planned, not a problem". I didnt used to be like that. I'd bring old balls with me so i could finish on a good shot but i feel, for me, doing that doesnt benefit me. Its a personnal kind of thing. If i've had a really good session then a few bad shots isnt the end of the world. I generally finish with pitches so there is less chance of finishing with a duff but if i do then its no biggie. Best to make the mistakes  in dress rehersal than on the night. I do agree with not going to bed angry though, never good.
    • 20" and 80" measuring devices will be on the market shortly.
    • That is not evidence of a conspiracy.  You can suspect collusion if you want, but there is absolutely no proof that anyone conspired to anything.  What little evidence that suspicion provides is completely circumstantial, and you can't provide a motive for such a conspiracy.   You may be right that there is a tacit conspiracy, but that would be very hard to prove to the point of meting out any punishment.  Suspicion and supposition certainly wouldn't convict anyone in a court of law, and I feel that you have to hold it to at least that high a standard.
