Oh man. My friend just sent me this because he knows how crazy I am. I'm surprised I didn't find this on my own

He gives me hell (rightfully so) because I have an obsession with my grips having to match my graphite shafts. I use new decades on all my clubs but the woods have to match. I'm always trying new shafts and even have to do this before I even know if I like the shaft. I'm going crazy right now because I just got a Motore Speeder 5.2 (non ts, dark purple) to try and I can't find any black/purple new decades anywhere! I bought one on eBay but it's def a fake. Found the only place online that had them and got an email that they were actually gone. I even called Callaway since they have the their "chev" version still available on new clubs. I called and they gave me the part number for a dealer to order but he was honest and told me they have 500 in stock in Mexico but they aren't particularly fast at shipping out grip orders and it would probably take about 3 weeks to get them. Needless to say, my OCD on this one is giving me enough anxiety.

I also have a thing about my driver, 3 wood and hybrid shafts all matching if possible too. I need help.....

Only thing I really care about is my dress. grips can be however, clubs mismatched and placed wherever...but I always want my pants to be pressed with a nice crisp crease, shirt to be proper fit and tucked in, proper hat and belt with matching shoes that were clean.

Every round I play I need a different club(s) than the last set up. I can't remember the last time I played back to back rounds with the exact same 14 clubs.

Dimes.  I'm OCD about dimes.  I always carry about 6 to 8 of 'em in my pocket.  That way, when I reach into my pocket, I don't have to fish around for a ball marker.  Dimes are best... small, thin and can be pushed down into the green so a ball can actually roll over them without being impeded.  There's always a guy in the group who has no ball marker, so I loan him a dime for the day, letting him know it's a big part of my 401K, so returning it at the end of the round is important.  I've never gotten a dime back.  More important is providing a dime ball marker to the guy who nauseatingly marks his ball with a token bigger than a platter you'd carve a turkey on.

I hate those manhole cover ball markers. They give me putting yips even if they are placed on the other side of the green 20 yds away from my ball.

So there is really only here and now

Many guys have a line on their ball that they line up putts with.  I can't see anything but what when I putt.  I have a line on my ball but it is always face down when I putt.  I have tried but I can't get lined up straight so I go with feel!

Well I guess in your eyes I am guilty as charged I use a poker chip have done so for quite some time now. LOL one of the guys in the Mafia group as it is dubbed is one of the big wheels in the company that owns most of the courses we play on. He calls poker chips "man hole covers" I told him yep they are but that does not stop you guys from selling thousands with the different course logos on them to the tourists. I have a bunch of poker chips but none with course logos. 2 of them came with my Grizzly Dip years ago and one is a $20 off a tattoo at my friends tattoo parlor. I won it off him on some kind of crazy bet years ago and still make it a point to use it when we play together even if we are partners. I found 2 Crown Royal bags full of Tequila Patron poker chips in a junk car at work one day and yes I kept them and the two CR bags too along with the 15 other CR bags I found in the same car

I have always wore pants when I play. I am not OCD about it just something I prefer and it wouldn't be the end of the world if I wore shorts.  I also use neon green tees when I hit the driver. It is a mental thing with me because it is the start of the hole and green means go.

Hah! The only times I've tapped down my ball marker and walked away with my marker stuck to the bottom of the my putter have been when using dimes! And the only time I've ever marked my ball and simply couldn't find it again after walking around the green was with a penny. These day's I keep quarters in my pocket, and always get them back after tossing them to folks without. I like the man hole covers just fine, I especially like it when they're just outside my line, and I push the putt, but it bounces off the mark and goes in! (that has only happened once, but it was great!}

Man oh man I use any tee I find do not care about the color or if they are plastic or wood. I am 60 years old and have never bought a tee in my life. I love it down here in the tourist golf season because the first thing they do off the plane is hit the big box stores and buy the jumbo bags of tees. They do not bother to pick them up either.

Uh HUUH! I know how to shake you up now if we ever get to play. Seriously if playing with folks I have never played with before I will ask if the chips bother them and I carry a couple of standard ball markers just in case. Come to think of it I have never had anyone say in person that it bothered them. But in all seriousness if we played together and it bothered you I would use a standard sized one about the size of a nickel

Actually Stu I was exaggerating. They don't really bother  but more like make me scratch my head wondering "why so big"? Although if one is anywhere near my line I will have the owner move it.
