We see them all the time. There are particular accessories that low-handicappers would never use, and that if you have them you are likely a hacker. These are the accessories that first come to mind.



plastic golf tubes

large plastic iron head covers

two gloves

stroke counter



Any others?

    Who knows, some guys come to the course looking like a tour player with the equipment to match and "THEN" they take the first swing "FORE!!!!", and then you have the other side of the coin, guys come in very humble and not too spectacularly dressed with older equipment then go out and shoot 70, so I never tend to speculate on anyone, I know some guys are very opinionated about others and then they get surprised..

    Towel hanging from belt loop
    Whaaaaaaat????



    Is this a regional thing?



    I made it my mission to rip the towels that TE's and backs used to tape to their waist and this one TE from Mich St had what I took to be his GF(Monica, LMAO) in black magic marker on a green hand towel and I finally tore it off and they were on our 22yd line and driving and he went ape s*** and drew a personal foul(15yds) and it moved em back, stalled the drive and they ended up missing a 47yd FG and we won by 3, lmao



    I've never been a fan of towels on the waist or belt loop, lol



    An in the case of the towel on the belt loop individual, well, the first individual who spots said offender and calls it, get a free running shot and unlike the NFL, "hook" tackles are legal. I'm tellin ya, contact golf may have a place in the grand scheme of things, lol



    A towel on a belt loop?



    WTF, LMAO?!?!?

    The sunglasses that help you find your balls and of course my favourite- you use range balls out on the course!



    I have to admit to slipping 'nice' range balls in my pocket when I first started golf and then using them to practice out on the course. It was not that bad as the place I practiced at was a range and an executive size course and there was lots of range balls on the course already.

    Ok, first, Madison took me to the local RW&Blue(think a nicer Goodwill) and let me just say that I came directly from the hospital and was higher than a kite....



    This is the longest friggin ball retriever I've ever seen and I'm not kidding, it had to be 20-25', which, if ya think about it, whether ya go 25' out and down, or just 25' down, what are the odds of scoopin a ball with that at full extension?



    Ok, Maddie said that I gave it wayyyyyy too much thought but for $2.99, I thought it was a steal, lol



    The KISS hat was for MadGolfer but Maddie said that I was walkin home if I didn't put it back-

    LMAO, Bro, our Pro bought two of those and they were rather nice as the beads were leather but they sat unsold for the season and he included one each in an event gift package and when the attendants were cleaning out the locker room garbage cans, someone had thrown theirs away, lol-



    I've got to say, I've never seen someone using one of those, lol



    They would be right behind the ball retriever and I guess now the towel on the belt loop, haha

    Real glad of where I live & play because we aren't judged like this.



    I have a 24' ball retriever that has an orange cage that can hold 2 golf balls. Can't think of the manufacuer.

    An old Ogio bag with the woddy system. The lining ripped out 3-4 years ago so I placed tubes in it---works better that the original set-up.

    Have covers on every club in my bag.

    Local course the only dress code is that you wear clothes.

    At the end of the season I got down to a 7 handicap.

    So I'm down in Virginia playing with my wife's cousin at one of the DC area courses. The course is pretty crowded and we get paired with an Australian guy who is living in the area on a work assignment for a year. Well dressed, bag full of relatively new Ping clubs, very nice guy. Wife's cousin, who played #1 singles for UVA's Tennis team which was during his time there the #1 team in the nation, says to me "This guy looks like he will probably be a decent player". I took one look at him and said "I don't think so".



    We get to the first tee and the Aussie puts one into the trees OB right and then tops one about 130 yards with the second try. Ends up picking up on the first hole after about 8 shots. Wife's cousin asks me how I knew, and I told him, "Brand new cheap golf shoes. No decent player is walking in bottom of the line shoes, and if they are they are beat to h*ll". He laughed and told me it was the exact same thing in tennis and he should've seen it himself.
