Help! I Was Tagged - What's In The Bag



I’ve watched my favorite golf blogs run through the WITB tagging epidemic recently and thought I was safe. I wasn’t. I’ve never even put my WITB on my Golf WRX forum signature! Okay Golfgal, here you go…this is what is in my bag that I happen to be gaming right now and the miscellaneous stuff in the pockets today…


What golf bag?

Ogio Edge stand bag - “punk rock” design – it rocks, just look at the pics!

What clubs?

All LEFTY:

Driver:
Cobra 460 M Speed Offset 9.0 men’s regular flex with stock Aldila NV-m shaft 50g (the guys at the Fujikura Fit-On Academy cut the tip about ¼’, added some lead tape to the bottom, and gave it a sweet Fujikura grip)

Woods:
Cleveland Launcher 15 degree men’s regular flex 55g with stock shaft (3-wood)
Cobra 5-wood M Speed Offset (hyper steel) men’s regular flex with stock Aldila NV-m shaft 50g

Irons:
4-P Callaway X-18 men’s regular flex, steel shaft (and yes, I have covers on my irons because the clatter drives me nuts)

Putter:
Odyssey Dual Force 2 (Anser style)

What else is in your bag?


I have a lot of stuff in my bag…a blue notebook with notes from every golf lesson that I have ever taken and a pen with blue ink attached, black regular sized sharpie, black mini sharpie, miscellaneous golf pencils, Golf Rules Quick Reference, The Lefthanded Golf Instructor quick reference guide, 2 bags of Epoch tees, Progrip Grip Cream, 2 scorecards from the last round I played (one filled in and one blank), Tattoo Golf divot tool with black ball marker and matching Tattoo Golf driver cover, Giggle Golf Trixie Towelette, Dodgers head covers on 3 and 5 woods, funky stuffed manatee cover on putter, miscellaneous tees of various sizes, gloves in white (2 FootJoy and 2 Callaway), brown (FootJoy), blue (FootJoy), and black (FootJoy), 2 sets of FootJoy winter gloves (one thicker than the other), TRION:Z Active bracelet in black (that I put on when I play), IZZO Golf SWAMI 1500 GPS Unit, Coppertone Sport SPF 30 spray, rain cover, driving range tees in 4 sizes, miscellaneous balls (Srixon, Titleist, TaylorMade, Nike), Golf WRX towel clipped on, small SPF 15 bottle clipped on, and UBOC mini bag containing three generic golf balls that is clipped on. I have a pocket that is currently empty but holds my lip gloss, cell phone (on silent), money, ID, and keys when I am playing.

Do you carry a lucky charm?


Nah, I’m really not superstitious. I joke about my lucky Titleist ball – I played it the whole round on the Firecliff course at Desert Willow last summer and didn’t lose it! If you’ve ever played this course you’ll know why I call it lucky to make it through with one ball.


What's the oldest thing in your golf bag?


I’m not really sure…I always clean out things I am not using and cycling everything through because I have a lot of things and get new stuff all the time.

Which is your favorite club?

Right now I have two faves: My driver and my 3 wood. I can hit both very well on a consistent basis…mostly…


Now I get to spread the tagging love to four other golfers

Haha. Good post. You have a ton of stuff in your bag! I like that you've taken notes at every golf lesson.

Ha! Yeah, I didn't realize how much was in there until I had to list it all. The funny thing is - my bag pockets aren't bulging or anything so I have room for more.

I think everyone should keep a lesson log. Lessons are quite expensive and if I am paying the price then I don't want to forget what I was taught. I go back and read through when I am in a funk and it always helps!

Lindsay said...

yeah, keeping a lesson log is a great idea. I am always writing things down. i just need to be more organized about it!

I keep a journal with lesson tips AND reminders for when I'm under pressure. It's funny what bad habits I can pick up when I'm nervous.

Love the rocked out bag. I'm impressed with the men's clubs--big hitter! I've come a long way, but I'm still working on building more arm muscle.

Hey Heather, thanks! One thing that contributes to my hitting of men's clubs is the fact that I'm 5'10". Women's clubs were too short and whippy for me. I'm working on strength as well and really hope to play from the black tees with the other three in my usual group!
