Golf shorts - pocket within a pocket

Recommended Posts

The guy who thought that putting a little pocket within the right front pocket of golf shorts is a good idea

You are very very wrong sir and if I ever meet you I'll be glad to show you how wrong you are.  That is all.

Regards,

It is weird and stuff gets stuck in there. I find it after a bunch of washings. If it was paper, it is a ball now.

This annoys me with regular pants too. My phone and my wallet get all tangled with the pocket.

You must be trolling. That pocket is the worst idea ever. If my ball mark gets caught up in there, It looks like I'm masterbating or something trying to get it out. Booooo this man..

You misread his post. He thinks it's a terrible idea (as do I).

First thing I do is take a pair of scissors to that thing. Worst clothing design idea ever.

I wondered when the complaining would stop and common sense would prevail.  :beer:

It all depends on how you use the pockets.

Ball markers never come out of any pocket without hassle. That's why i now have a magnetic one that clips to my cap. (The hefty poker-chip marker lasted about half a season. About four times a round someone would complain the chip was too big to putt over.)

With a hat clip, things get more organized. I can keep a ball repair tool - big enough to feel in the subpocket - and a replacement ball and a couple of tees in my left main pocket. That way, I don't have both side pockets full of fertilizer and dirt at the end of the  round. I feel no need to fertilize my cell phone.

As for trousers, the sub-pockets are quite handy. If I'm trying to be casual, one sub-pocket can handle my business-card case, and the other my comb. That way, I have keys in one main pocket and cell phone in the other.

Now if better clubs could get rid of their cargo-shorts angst, this would alleviate the golf-pocket crisis. I'm surprised Golf Digest hasn't written a cover story on cargo shorts. :-O

I normally use my pockets to hold stuff, at which point one large pocket I feel is sufficient, that little pocket just complicates things.

The Director of Golf at my course banned the use of the hat clips. :-P According to him they were designed for women and a real man would never use one. I myself don't have quite the strong opinion of them, but I don't believe I have ever seen a tour pro use one so maybe he's right. Either way the razzing I would get for using one would be too much to handle.

I don't think I have ever carried that many items in my pockets at one time..ever. Especially while playing golf.

Cargo shorts are for camping, not for the golf course. :-P

I'm shocked, shocked!:angry: to find such hostile attitudes in NM.  I assumed the state which hosts the Rio Grande Arts & Crafts Festival  would be more tolerant of such functional adornments as cap marker clips.

OT: While legal, you may have voided your warranty. That's all. The tag is only legally required for retailers, manufacturers, etc. IIRC.

Also, I don't have many pants or shorts with the little pocket. On jeans I understand it's the "coin pocket," and I've used it for things from time to time (like a movie ticket, which I don't need to get, but don't want to lose for a little while, and while I won't be going into and out of my pockets for awhile).

Guys! It's for your pocket watch! We all still carry one of those right?

Pace of play issues are not the topic! :content:

(But neither are hat clips. I’ll crawl back into my cave now.)
