    I've used the same divot tool for the last 20 years. When I was a golf professional our Titliest Rep. gave the staff a Cameron divot tool in a little red holder. This was before they put them on the putters. It's worn to the point that the prongs have very sharp points. I've got two others that the guys I worked with did not want and I have those as back ups.

    I have finally started to put my scorecard on the holder provided by my push cart. For years and years it [the scorecard] had to be folded just perfectly with two little puncture marks I'd make for the pencil so it [the pencil] wouldn't fall out or impale my finger. My wallet would go in the golf bag, the scorecard in my back right pocket. I still reach for the scorecard in my pocket before realizing it is on my pushcart...

    Another word for this if you are from my generation is: Idiosyncrasy. Perhaps that doesn't sound so strange. (LOL) image/rolleyes.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':rolleyes:' />

    We used to have a member of our ladies golf association who would tell people to get completely off the green & out of her sight if they were wearing very bright colored clothing.....really! She said it was distracting to her. You cannot imagine some of the funny things people would say to her when she complained about the color of their clothes. Fortunately, she was only a member for a couple of years. I can only imagine how she is now with all the "neon" colors being worn. image/taunt.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':taunt:' />

    I do have ocd. It sucks. Makes life hard. I have to check faucets, lights, locks and everything else 3 times. Always 3. If I'm still unsure, then it's another series of three.



    BUT, on the course I relax. The only thing is cleaning my ball before I putt.

    Keeping club faces clean, headcovers on every club, perfectly clean ball on the green, shirt has to be properly tucked in, sunglasses and hat sitting perfectly, I separate a certain number of balls on the range for specific shots and drills, pre shot routine has to be perfect or I start over (doesn't happen too often, I HATE losing balls and playing with people who take 16 practice swings lol

    The only thing I am OCD about is having nothing that I am OCD about.



    I only wipe off my clubs if there is dirt on the face before I hit a shot. I almost never wipe them after I hit. Most of the time I throw them in my trunk with clumps of dirt on them. I have never cleaned my golf shoes (I wear spikeless athletic shoes though). I don't clean my golf ball after a hole or before I putt. I try to get some of the dirt off with my hands but as long as there is no clump on it, it will roll or fly just fine.



    So yeah.. Nothing ocd for me. Sometimes I have my phone in my back pocket, sometimes not. Sometimes a wallet, sometimes not. I'll have **** in both pockets from time to time. None of it matters in the end



    I normally don't take practice swings, but then sometimes I do take practice swings. No idea why. I just do what feel rights

    This goes sort of hand-in-hand with the OP - I can't stand having finger prints on my steel shafts. Something about seeing fingerprints on the metal that distracts me to no end. I actually hold my irons in my gloved hand and my putter with a small towel. Alternatively if I get a print on a shaft I wipe it down - gotta have it nice and shiny.

    Ball markers and repair tool go in right pocket, all other pockets must empty.



    I never clean my shoes or clubs unless I walk in, or swing through ****. Exception is if there is noticable crud on face/grooves, then I will of course clean with brush hanging off bag.

    An easy way to remove glue residue is to rub it with rubbing alcohol. Probably a lot cheaper also. Can you say dollar store? image/taunt.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':taunt:' />

    I've found that 55 gallon drums from the local industrial supply to be far more economical.

    Tell them to keep their lips off your ball. Usually works. No need for potential assault charges. Certain to ruin the day.

    Most of them are made/assembled overseas. There are huge problems exporting and importing clubs that don't have all the labels of origin on them and they are screwed if they fall off (Customs can reject a whole shipment for even a few clubs that don't have labels and yes, every club needs them). The other problem is that most stickers need the industrial adhesive to make sure the stickers don't "flag" or fall off. So they make sure they never come off. It's still a PITA though.

    Sounds almost exactly like me. I have to admit my clubs are usually dirty. I just looked at one pair of my shoes yesterday and thought to myself, "I should clean these", then promptly put them back,in the box.



    I have a question for the guys who make sure their clubs are always in the correct slot. In my SM C130S the two bigger slots at the top hold my putter and driver. I do like the putter on the closer side (maybe I do have some OCD��) to me. That way the putter doesn't come out over the driver. So when I'm riding as opposed to driving the cart, I'll switch those two clubs around. Does something like that bother you?

  • I rake bunkers and don't step in people's lines. Seriously, what gets into people's heads so that they don't rake their own footprints? Are they embarrassed that it took 2-3 whacks to get it out and they think it's like quicksand that will swallow them whole? Nice courses, privates, semi-privates, munis doesn't matter. I never encounter a round where there isn't at least one unraked bunker (mid-morning - afternoon player due to overnight work shift.)

    This might take awhile.



    Grips have to be the same on all clubs...although I have eased up on all being the exact same color.



    3 wood and 5 wood (when I carry one) have to match.



    52 and 58 have to match (although the grind can be different)



    Clubs have to be in their proper divider. Driver and 3 wood at the top with putter. 3 Hyb..4 iron..5 are together. 6..7..8 together. 9..PW...52...58.



    Coins(always the same four: ball marker..quarter from my birth year...quarter from wife's birth year..penny with a cross symbol pressed through it) in the left pocket and tees and divot tool in the right pocket. Glove goes in back right pocket.



    WILL NOT for any reason use a tee laying on a tee box. It's cursed. CURSED.



    Clothes have to match. I've stood in front of the closet for thirty mins deciding what to wear. Almost missed a tee time cause I couldn't figure out if a shirt/short combo worked. Drives my wife crazy.



    Prob a few more.

    If the ball is on a tee then reading the logo should be along the target line. Tees, divot tool, poker chip, ball when not in play, and spare ball (if necessary) all in right pocket. All other pockets are empty unless walking, then scorecard and pencil goes in a back pocket. Any scuffs or dings on a ball of any kind takes that ball out of play. Hat feels naked without marker clip on right side of brim. Clubs always go in their pre-determined slot in the bag.
