Superstitions in golf

  •  

    How many of us have this phobia??

    The Pros seem to have them and do we??

    Mine is wearing the same shirt when playing in a local for fun tourament. What is yours and does it make any difference to you??

  •  

    None for me. 

  •  

    Divot tool in the left pocket, 3 tees in the right. Not too crazy but for some reason it is the way i do it everytime i play.

  •  

    I used to get worried about the numbers on the golf balls IE; 3 causes 3 putts. But now I just take the sharpie out and mark it out in a circular motion then put 2 more small circles at 10:00 and at 2:00 o'clock and then I have the outline of my childhood hero Mickey Mouse (actually I liked Pluto better but I can't draw a dog).

    I do have some favorite shirts/colors for tournament rounds. 

  •  

    I find that if I have a good round during a tournament I will wear the same shoes worn during that round the next day as well.

    Also, I put my divot repair tool and 3 (only 3) tees in the same pocket along with a randomly selected coin for a ball marker.

    I am afraid of holes-in-one so I never get them...

  •  

    For tournaments I always use a Greenbrier ball marker, thats about it

    I don't have any superstitions, but I do have habits. I carry a liberty dime to mark my ball, and a Scotty divot tool.

    I guess routines/habits end up being superstitions or explanations as to why things went or didn't go my way.

    Since Mark resurrected this, I have no superstitions but like him I do have habits (which on occasion get forgotten and it's no big deal).

    Things like divot tool / marker in the same pocket.  My glove when off goes in the same place, etc.

    No superstitions, just routines and habits.......guess that is call being organized......is that a superstition?

  •  

    Ummm good question, I guess I really don't have any. Whenever I am playing with my buddies we always throw a tee to see who tees off first second third fourth, but that's all I can think of.

  •  

    No superstitions for me.  I do a lot of the same things (same amount of tees in my pocket, same snacks in my bag) but that's just because it works for me, really no other reason.

    Mark, you must be really bored today. :-)
