    After seeing the "do pros use broken tees on par-3s" thread on tour talk, it reminded me that I greatly prefer to use a found broken tee on any hole I'm not hitting driver than an unbroken one from my pocket. I'll scan for one for 5-10 seconds before pulling out a whole tee.

    Except that you CAN NOT use a tee you have found on the same tee box you found it on. You have to put it in your pocket for at least one hole. That way it becomes “your tee.”

    Lets see, I must have all of my clubs in their designated slots in my bag, and they need to be numbered correctly. I have a 6-slot bag. 3-6 in one slot, 7-9 in the next, wedges in another, driver and hybrid in the top slot, and woods in the slot next to the driver. I know this is common knowledge, but my clubs also need to lay numbered from highest to lowest loft at all times. When the clubs get shuffled up while I'm driving the cart, I get pissed and have to reorganize them so that they are numerical (stupid me, i know...). I need to tee the grooves after every shot, clean them after every round, keep 3 tees in the cart and ALWAYS keep another tucked under my hat by my ear. Gloves also need to be new. Once i see that they are gettin a tad too dirty, its time to switch. My golf outfits must always be coordinated correctly. I hate mismatching. Lol alright, I'm done expressing my issues.

    Clean clubs after each shot. That's about it. Clean set before I play.

    Apart from that I don’t like playing partners or their bags in my eye line during shots. That’s about it

    wrong, Wrong, WRONG, I tell you...just plain WRONG! It's exactly the opposite; you can ONLY use a broken tee on the same box where you find it!

    You’re going to use somebody else’s tee?

    I'm with ya CK, same slot every time and always in proper order or else I lose my sh*t. I also constantly check my bag during the round cuz I'm simply done with leaving clubs behind and having to sprint back 2 holes to retrieve what I'm missing.

    Another one - I have to start on the 1st tee. HAVE TO, it's the way a course was designed to be played.
    I am a committee member of my current golf group. If there is anything I am guilty off, is always ensuring I start on the 1st tee even when we have split tee times (1st & 10th) or shotgun start.

    Carry on.

    Standing on impediments on the tee box. Especially divots, old tees, grass clumps, in a 10 ft area.

    I’m so OCD about my iron covers getting messed up, I don’t even use them.

  • OldCussOldCuss South CarolinaMembers Posts: 16 ✭✭

    Pretty much OK with about anything playing partners or others do (assuming basic respect for others, the course, the game, and the context of the experience) given I want them to be as comfortable and have as much fun as possible, even if it means regular demonstrations of DSM. But, I do get annoyed with those that rush folks, especially if the rushed folks are trying very hard not to hold up a reasonable pace of play. My OCD is about not getting in the way - please, yes, it's OK with me for you to play through, but please don't hit into others, my group, or me. Thanks.

    Wet towel.

    Didn't realize it was such a big deal until I rode off without wetting it last week and HAD to wet it in a man-made water feature on the #2 tee.

    This. I cannot focus without a wet towel.

    I have a small one for the greens and a larger one for my clubs. I use the same two towels religiously and wash them after every 1-2 rounds.

    I cannot play with dirty clubs or dirty golf balls.
    I cannot play without my towel and it must be wet but not super wet.
    I played once where I forgot my towel and it was the worst day of my golfing life.
    Now I have a towel inside my car, my bag, and my push cart. lol
    I also use a bag that has slots and each club was must be in their proper and designated slots, always.

    I'm ocd about cleaning my clubs. It's not that I clean them all of the time. I clean them about once a week. But, I only trust myself to clean them because I feel that I can clean them to the way I want them to be cleaned. To be honest, I don't have any special method (I do clean the grips every time), but I just don't trust others to put the time and care into cleaning my clubs.

    I'm also pretty OCD about the weighting of the clubs. I use an MOI Auditor for the heft of clubs. And I can get a club that I'm hitting well, but if it's not where it should be on the MOI Auditor, I'll change the weighting to where it needs to be because I simply don't trust that I will continue to hit it well if the heft of the club isn't right.

    What I carry in my pocket during a round. The only things allowed are a ball marker, repair tool and up to 2 tees. Nothing else.
