i can not use a mixed bag.

 

If i am playing Titleist stuff, i have to use everything Titleist, including my shoes ( footjoy) , hat , ball, clubs, bag, divot tool, putter, everything must be Titleist.

 

Same with TaylorMade or Callaway. I don't know if it qualifies as superstitious, but it is just as bad.

 

That's not being superstitious, it's way way worse, called MAD HOE DISEASE! You need help! :dntknw:

I never ever tee a #1 marked ball up :drinks: I just can't hit a decent drive with these....I even ask to switch out the 1's in the boxes when I buy :dntknw:

 

White tees ONLY and an ancient italian 500 lire coin for ballmarker.

My bag
TM SIM2 Max driver, G425 Max woods, Titleist 818 hybrid, Srixon Z565 irons, Vokey SM7 wedges, Yes Tracy III putter

I always try and play with ones and twos. Last thing I want to do when putting is look at a three. How anyone can play with an eight I just don't know. Strikes me as tempting fate.

 

I also used to mark my ball on the green with a 20 pence piece. When I put the marker down, if it was a head up I felt like I would hole it and if it was a tail, I felt like I wouldn't. Couldn't cope with that, so now I use a marker.

 

JHR,

 

That's :dntknw: . What if the Yes putter was the best putter in the world by some margin, but they don't make any other clubs? You wouldn't even contemplate using it? Having said that I was full titleist for a while. It also means you can't use those lovely Scratch irons because they don't do drivers. :drinks:

If I am going to hit a tee shot with any other club than a driver (spoon, iron), I have to tee the ball with an old tee that I've found at that tee box. If I can't find any, I feel I am going to flunk the shot.

 

Fortunately, there is almost never any shortage of broken old tees in the box. After the shot, I always throw away the tee: I cannot keep it for the next hole :dntknw:

I only use light brown tees as white symbols out of bounds. I also always carry with me a saltire marker. If I'm playing a four round event I also use a #4 on the first day, #3 on the second and so on until I use a number 1 on day 4.

This season before each practice or competition with my school i would listen to the same exact song (pump it by the black eyed peas)on repeat for as long as it took me to get to the course. when i have a really long practice i listen to my ipod and my routine is always putting, chipping, range, chipping, and then putting again.
