Towels, divot tools, brushes...the list goes on an on and on and on.... There are at least 300,000,000 accessories you can hang off your bag.
What do you have and why that one?

I keep a couple towels, a waffle weave for drying my hands and my head when it's really hot out, usually a little damp to help cool me down. The other towel is a Frogger towel which is wet on the inside for cleaning my clubs. I tried the players/waffle weave towel, but the frogger just works a little better for me.

I also keep one of those cooling bandannas on my bag. It's got some kind of gel in it, and all I do is soak it before the round and wear it around my neck when it's really hot outside. Helps to keep my body temp cool, and I think it cost about $3. One of the best things EVER in the southern heat.

UE BOOM for music, and I can either hang it from the bag or sit it nicely in a cup holder.

Bag Accessories-What do you carry and why?

I’ve got a few items floating around but my Scottish Tam-o-shanter cap stays in the bag. If I’m having a fun round with friends and screwing around, I’ll don the cap when I need a little extra short game magic. It’s a fine cap and also helps ones ability to drink scotch and most types of beer.

I walk almost always. So play that game between stuff you've got to have and trying to keep the weight down.

Here's how I accessorize!

THE ALWAYS WITH ME LIST
- Bushnell X-Tour Rangefinder
- 2 towels (one wet, one dry)
- Brush to clean the grooves
- Assorted tees
- Ball mark repair tool from the Greenbriar Resort that also has ball markers and is a gift from my son-in-law
- A couple extra pencils for marking
- Two range mat tees (always good to have when you are practicing and they don't weigh enough to bother removing when I am playing)

THE SEASONAL LIST
- Pullover and arm sleeves to layer when it's cold
- Rain gear for the rainy season
- Sunscreen & water canister for the summer months

I push my bag around on a trolley so the weight isn't much of an issue for me

Stuff that is always in my bag

Tees / Ball markers
Balls
Pitchmark tool
Sharpie for marking up a ball
Towel
Spare glove(s)

Stuff that rotates is pretty much dependant on the weather forecast and will be put into the back of the car when leaving home and a decision will be made when I reach the course as to whether it goes in the bag or not

Extra 1/4 zip
Rain jacket
Umbrella

I carry two towels (one for cleaning my clubs/balls and one to dry my hands). Several ball markers and divot tools and a brush. Everything else in the bag is the usual stuff needed for play.

I have a few. I carry a pitchfix divot tool and ball marker but I don’t use the marker portion of it. I carry a Salute Military Golf Association “New England Chapter” coin. It’s the same form factor of the AC coin but this one feels special to me because of the work myself and my dad have done for the organization. Check em out.

Also a cooling towel when it’s hot and flavoring for water

Those are the only extra besides the obligatory tees (2 in pocket and handful in bag), balls (1 in play and 2 in bag), gloves (2 - 3), repair tool (1 in pocket and 1 in bag) and ball markers (1 in pocket and 3-4 in bag).

Isn’t that what poison ivy is for? I will wait for a restroom. That’s nasty.

Golf towel
Club brush wired and soft
3 normal gloves. 1 rain glove.
Divot tool w/ball marker
Rangefinder
Tees
Callaway umbrella
sunscreen

The umbrella is pretty much for show and an excuse to use my umbrella loop on each of my golf bags. Think I used the umbrella on the course a handful of times, if that.

Hanging off my bag I have a few items:

2-3 towels, always my orange and black frogger towel and usually at least one other. A club brush, 1 bag tag ring ( but 3 tags:current club tag, tag from an NCGA event I won a club tournament to get in and the tag we made for Regional Rivalry last year).

Inside the bag, or on my push cart? There are a lot more items I have... 3 pouches worth and a yardage book.
