What's your Pocket Grab today?


Recommended Posts

I'm always curious to see what people have in their pockets when they golf. Do you have a few coins that you jingle before you putt? Do you have a special ballmarker, or a custom divot tool? Wood tees or plastic?

Here's what I always have in my pocket:

I don't always have the ball in my pocket, just when I'm reading a putt. Setting it back down right before I hit it is part of my pre-shot routine.

I carry two tees with me - I use the 2 3/4" one with my driver, and the 1" one for fairway woods, hybrids, and long irons. With short irons and wedges I'll hit directly off the turf. A single plastic tee will usually last me 3 or 4 rounds.

The divot repair tool is nothing special, just a punched piece of steel. However, it came from the golf bag that my granddad gave to me and my brothers 10 years ago, so it has some sentimental value.

And finally, the ball marker. When I was a kid I used to collect hat pins - I got this one during a visit to the summit of Pikes Peak in Colorado (my family lived just outside Denver until I was about 7 years old). I cut the pin spike off the back of it and filed it down, and now I have a piece of my childhood reminding me to man up and not leave my putts short every time I'm on the green!

So what's your pocket grab today? Share a picture and tell us the story!

No picture, but today I had a handful of long tees, a switchblade divot repair tool, one poker chip size marker from TPC Sawgrass (normally, I'll also carry a couple of smaller plastic markers, as well, but we were playing a scramble and I wouldn't need them), and an extra golf ball.

Interesting. I prefer to have nothing in my pockets except one coin and one wood tee that also works as my divot tool.

I can’t stand thinks jangling around so they are generally on opposite sides too, haha.

As little as possible for me:

Couple of long wooden tees (I'll scavenge short/broken ones if not hitting driver)

Divot tool

Custom made ball marker

Spare ball if the tee is a bit of a walk from the bag.

Do you have a picture of the ball marker? I’m always interested in custom stuff, there are a lot of cool ball markers out there.
