What's the worst performing equipment in Golf?

Recommended Posts

What's the worst performing and least functional gear in the game today? Golf carts? Socks? The legs on a carry bag? What's the thing that feels like stubbing your toe every time you use it? Surely there's a better way!

This one may sounds stupid or not as relevant, however important to me is good shoes. Cheaper shoes that don't have great comfort, fit and waterproofness are top of my list.

Good socks and comfortable, grippy, waterproof shoes are the foundation (pun intended) to a good round.

That said, the worst performing item might well be the spring loaded divot repair tools that seem to enjoy opening in your pocket at the most inopportune times.

I have the unique ability to make anything from driver, to putter, golf bag, golf cart, golf tee, golf ball, shoes, socks, rain gear, golf gloves, range finders, gps devices, ball markers, golf bag and divot tools perform poorly at the most inopportune times.

This is extremely niche but the umbrella holder on my push cart. I can't make it high enough so I can stand under the umbrella, it doesn't have enough grip for even the slightest wind and is overall just a waste of space. It is the standard umbrella holder that comes on the TGW pushcart (which is an awesome, inexpensive pushcart for all other aspects).

I have 3 different types of shoes for that reason. The ones I enjoy more often are the Nike Air Max 90G, they aren't too breathable because of the water resistant material, but they are great until you get north of 90 degrees out and they keep out the early morning dew if you are hitting the course early. I have a hot weather pair and a wet weather pair.

I'd always wondered about that seeing people with them, I would have the same issue.

A repeat offender, I'll steer well clear.

I have never had the pleasure of sharing the course with someone using one.

My buddy’s ball marker. Based on where he replaces his ball, it must move 3-4 inches backward between the time he puts it down and his turn on the green.
