What do you have in your golf bag?

17 posts in this topic

I recently started golfing and have no idea what I should be bringing with me.
I mean my bag has at least 8 pockets....so now I gotta figure out what I'm going to fill them with.

For example, how many balls/tees/do you have in your bag? Is there anything extra you carry with you that I might overlook?

Thank in advance

At least 18 tees.... a dozen golf balls, 2 towels, one of me, one for the clubs, bottle water, pen, ball markers. I put my headcovers in the pockets, so I make sure I don't over stuff in the first place. Once I start, I don't carry my keys, wallet on me, I put in into one of the pockets.

Also a divot tool for the green, maybe a club brush to clean the dirt off of your clubs while your playing. I have a weighted donut in my bag (one that you slip on the end of your club to warm up pre-round)...

My golf bag is more packed full of essentials than my CURRENT camping gear. A golfing buddy of mine even made a remark similar to that.

LOL

I'll generally carry 6-12 balls. I don't really destroy them during the round, but I do occasionally lose them; my home course has a water trap on the 10th, for example. I've also been known to lose them in the trees, but that practice has (thankfully) narrowed down. If a ball behaves poorly, I will put it in a separate pocket and play another one as soon as legally possible.

Other essentials:
- Tees
- Water bottles (I carry 2x32 oz + 1x24 oz; 24 oz is clipped to bag)
- 3 gloves (I can get away with one during a round, but I like to change if my grip slips. At the range, I need 3, because I sweat into my glove when I hit for 15-20 minutes without removing it).
- G-clip (ball marker, divot repair tool, tee holder, fits onto my belt)
- sunglasses case
- towels (clipped onto the bag)
- sunscreen
- various foodstuffs ( Clif bar, etc )
- pocket for my wallet, phone (off!), and keys
- club scrub (for cleaning clubs during the round, typically done while waiting)
- spare pencils and a sharpie

phone (off!)

I agree it definitely has to be switched off or set only in vibrate mode in the bag.

There's this one time my friend was playing against my other friend for money. Apparently he forgot to put his cell phone in the bag, instead he put it in his side pocket. Then when he was going to put 3 footer for par just after he reached the end of back stroke, his cell phone set off and with vibration as well. He was so pissed off and then picked the phone and yelled like, "WHAATTT??" It turned out to be his girlfriend calling just to ask how was his golf round doing. Sorry, an off topic post. I thought I'd share the story.

I am a minimalist. I obviously carry balls (anywhere from 6 to a dozen) 10 tees (zero friction tees, they rarely break), ball marker, towel, and 2 gloves, all in an easy to carry Scratch sac. I used to carry around a tour bag, thinking it looked cool, and would load it with about 30 pounds of crap I would never use. My current arrangement suits me much better and will preserve my back .

    • It's simple, really, if you want the ball to roll out more, play a less lofted club.  It's not unreasonable to use a 6 or 7 iron, if the greens are slow enough that it works.  On the other hand, if you're getting good results the way you're doing it, not much reason to change. It's good to have more shots in your repertoire, so it might be a good shot to learn, even if you don't use it much.  
    • I don't think my golf budget will allow me to play #2, though 
    • Married for 32 years. But my wife plays Saturday and Sunday too, and ladies night is Wednesday, she sometimes plays 18 before that,  the only time I'm there on my own is Friday. Some guys hate that their wife plays, but I love it.  Did I mention, we spent two weeks in Ireland recently, played 8 rounds of golf.
    • I've seen several videos and read several articles of instructions (and yes, even watched the instruction on the golf channel) for chipping and there is this pretty well known rule of flying the ball about 1/3 and letting it roll the remaining 2/3 (I may have those backwards).  So my question is actually not about that. My question is that for many, many rounds now I cannot seem to get the ball to roll out at all. I have to fly the ball at LEAST 80% and might get 10% roll (leaving 10% putt). Granted, this is with my 55 SW. But even if I play the ball on my back foot, feet very close together, and a good amount of forward shaft lean (and even flopping the ball) the freaking ball doesn't roll. It there a smoking gun for this type of problem? Is my angle at impact or some swing mechanism generating a ton of spin that is causing the ball to stop on a dime? Or fly too high? Alternatively, my approach shots are almost always < 12-inches from my ball mark. This can be a 4-i down to a SW. I typically can't see the ball land because my eyesight isn't stellar, so I don't know if it's hopping forward and spinning back or not. But I'm really thinking not. Not sure if one has to do with the other. Now, the courses I play on are pretty darn soft and slow... so maybe that's just how these types of greens play? You just never see that on the PGA tour. 
    • So, I haven't done any real practice since May and got to the range today.   I've got a new driver last week and wanted to practice with it since I hit it really well this weekend.   I've always been inconsistent with my 3W & 5W and this weekend really got me because they cost me some strokes.  After watching a few videos from Mark Crossfield and the Me and My Golf guys, I've concluded that the way to work on getting consistent contact is to make sure I get my weight forward so as to avoid laying back and topping the ball. In both instances I've found that on the downswing if I focus on getting the instep of my back foot towards the ground rather than turning my leg and getting on my toes (which feels more natural) that I make better contact more consistently. As per @mvmac's advice from a while ago, to avoid hooking the ball, I also focus on feeling as though I'm hitting to the right at impact.   So, in these vidoes I'm doing these three things: Getting weight forward Pushing my instep to the ground Swinging towards the right. I know I cross the line at the top which I didn't realize but any thoughts would be appreciated.
