    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.




    I appreciate what you go through. I worked with a guy who had legit OCD. It was amazing when you realized all of the things he had to do to get through the day.



    He wouldn't let anyone else change the bottle on the water cooler because he had to make sure it got cleaned properly between every bottle. He had to do a pre-trip inspection of his car EVERY time he got in it that included checking tire pressure and oil level. If he was ever the only one in the office, all of the garbage cans would be empty when you got back, and all of the blinds would be exactly 18" above the window sills, straight as a razor. We stopped putting cans in the recycling bin and just left them on the counter because he had to go through the bin to make sure all of them were washed and crushed properly to save space if anyone but him had thrown anything in there. He kept a spiral notebook to document exactly what he did and at what time. His wife said he had a room full of them at home. He regularly worked from 6:30am to 8pm just to take care of all the things he "needed" to do before he could go home. And you couldn't help, because if you tried he still had to go behind you to make sure it was done right.



    His actual job included making a trip to the post office daily, and the boss told him he could submit the mileage, but he never did. Boss used to joke that he was going to get an itemized invoice when Bob retired for $20,000 for 15 years worth of receipts, and he knew he wouldn't have to check it.



    So in that light I'm not OCD about anything on the golf course.

    Good Post! I've known a few folks like that and I can tell you that nobody ever teased or made fun of them. They actually can make life very organized and convenient for others while they're going through and doing their "Thing." In fact, I don't really think they're upset about what they have to do, rather I think that is just how they go through their day for whatever they do. The "Anal and OCD" things we're joking about with this Post are really nothing more than "Superstitions" that we ALL know are going to make us play a better round of Golf!

    You shouldn't look at the things folks with true OCD do as convenient or organized. They are locked in a serious situation that manifests in these repetitive routines and rituals. Some of these compulsions take over their daily lives and can wreak havok on personal interactions. What they need is help, not a pat on the back for getting all of your trash cans emptied.
  • DBillDBill Members Posts: 1,113 ✭✭
    I always have a wet towel and must clean my clubs after every shot. I also can not have any tees or golf balls in my pockets. My divot tool and ball marker in the right pocket and glove in the left when not being used. Also, not sure if this is OCD or somewhat common sense, but I have a pair of white and black golf shoes I rotate between, I have to match sock color to shoe color. Just looks weird if they don't match.

    OK. Maybe you're right. How about YOU empty the trash cans from now on?

    Okay, I'm just so tired of my friend's lousy etiquette, or just bad manners....replays bad shots and doesn't count them....his score, not mine, so what, but then he compares my legit score to his...ugh....doesn't pay attention to others' shots and will spend a lot of time ball hawking for his and others' off-line shots....talks while others are hitting....and doesn't tip the cart farts after his twilight round (the only time he'll pay to play)....it's only a game, I know, and maybe I'm being a bit OCD about it...but still....had to vent....thanks.

    Where to begin.....

    Hate when someone in the group says, "nice putt", before it's in the hole...almost always catches an edge and doesn't drop.

    I'm OCD about anyone touching my clubs/bag period. I will actually tip the kid at the end of the round who wants to clean my clubs to not clean them....hands off, here's your money.

    Same goes for the bag drop.....never use it....don't care how far I have to walk with my bag.

    I am the opposite, on par 3's anyway. Any tee that is a color I like(dark), and already broken to the perfect length is GOOD luck, because hey, free perfect tee.

    Since I manage a golf shop:



    Shoes have to be in order by size. Drives me insane to find them out of order.



    Also have to arrange shirts on the hooks by size. Small in front...up to XXL in back.



    Side note: I have a lot of books.

    Arranged first by favorite author...then by publication date. I think people rearrange them when visiting to throw me off.

    The biggest for me are having my clubs in the correct order in my bag and they have to be clean. I clean my clubs/grips after every round and range session. I'm an EXTREMELY neat person. Yes, I know that it's a good quality to have, but it can be very exhausting at times.

    Oh...another thing, right pocket is for two tees, ball marker, divot repair tool. Left pocket is for Chapstick. (always)




    ^ This - exactly.



    I have a few others.....



    I use the alignment aid on the ball when lining up a putt, but the lettering or writing always has to be upside down to me while I am standing over the putt.



    Surprised that through 4 pages of posts there weren't many about having the same club manufacturer throughout the bag. I don't always have a total bag of one brand, but I try to get close. If I have more than one, then the woods can be different, but only the woods - irons and wedges need to be the same.



    I only ever use one type of towel, and it is the kind that are given out at a public pool (white with a blue stripe on it). And I always wet one side and the other side is left dry, and it hangs over the left side of the handle of my push cart.

    I am not terribly OCD,but here's my list.



    - I always arrive 90 minutes before my tee time. I'll putt for 15 minutes, hit a large bucket, then putt for another 15 minutes before I tee off.

    - I only use 2 3/4 inch white tees made by pride golf ONLY. I won't use any other tee, so don't offer me one of yours.

    - Always walk and wear pants.

    - Remove glove after every shot and place in left rear pocket.

    - Change gloves every hole. I have about 15 gloves hanging on my bag.

    - If I see yellow tees on the teeing ground, I make sure I break them because nobody should ever use a yellow tee (not sure why, just how I feel)

    - Ball markers in left rear pocket

    - Tees in Right pocket

    - Rarely clean my clubs

    - Titleist only except for balls, I'll play anything as long as its a tour level ball.

    - Nike only apparel except shoes. Their apparel fits my body perfectly.

    - On the course, I always pick up any trash, bottles. I feel if I treat the course well, it will reward me back.

    Literally everything. But primarily not rattling your clubs or making unnecessary noise during my swing which lasts .3 friggin seconds. And your shadow over the hole or in my putting line on the green. in general, just don't be a moron and be aware of your surroundings.

    My OCD is ball marks and divots. I will fix as many as possible and fill as many as possible. Another is my clubs. I use a

    Vokey mid size, and the woods go in the large slot by where the strap is affixed to the bag. Then in the next row, on the left is my 5, 6 and 7, on the right is my 8, 9, PW. The front 2 slots are my 56 and 60° Vokeys, and my Scotty, on the left And right respectively.

    I clean my clubs with soap and water after every round/practice. I even wipe down my woods with windex to keep them looking new and remove any grass stains.

    JP has this ball repair tool. It is just a simple magnetized brass colored prong that is tactually pleasant that holds his ball marker - assuming he needs to putt - that he likes to have with him. It's not really OCD so much, but he is fond of it beyond its actual value monetarily. He bought it used off a ****, which is not really relevant, but she did bring it up at the time JP bought it...but he does like it.
