The 4 items every golfer needs in their pockets
- Extra golf ball(s)
At some point, no matter how good you are, you’re going to hit a ball into the woods or water or lose it in some other capacity. If you don’t have an extra ball in your pocket, that means, before you hit another ball you are going to do one of two things.
Option one is walk back over to the cart and fumble around your bag until you get another ball, not the worst case scenario, but you’re still slowing your group down. Option two is you’re going to ask your partner for a ball, don’t do that. You just hit one into the water/woods/tall grass and lost it, why would I give you a ball?? Keep one in your pocket
Multiple tees. They break, you drop them, they fall into black holes never to be found again (along with socks, sun glasses, and chap sticks, golf tees might be the most commonly lost item in the world. I’d say it’s a 4-way tie.) Keep a handful of tees in your pocket and you never have to worry about where one is again.
- Divot Fixer
If you suck this isn’t really necessary because you won’t be making many ball marks as you approach the green. If you don’t suck, keep a divot fixer on you, nothing is worse than sticking the green and having a solid shot at sinking your par/birdie putt, only to see some jerk-off left a divot right in your path. Don’t be that guy, fix your divots.
- Ball markers
This one is self-explanatory. Multiple times per round you will have to mark your balls, it’s that simple. Keep your marker on you at all times.
