I am OCD about things being alphabetical. That said, it should be CDO rather than OCD so the letters are in the right order.

Then it would be a government speak: Compulsive Disorder: Obsessive. :-)

Tees. Have to pick up used tees from tee box and throw them away or keep them. Or if they are broken but long enough, I take them home, cut them down to a smaller tee with my hedge clippers and use them for iron/hybrid tees. I don't know why this has become a religion for me. I'm not that cheap or ocd otherwise.

I yield, sir. You win the prize! :fan_1:

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.
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 used to carry a silver dollar just to mark the ball when I played one guy...it always drove him nuts.

On the ball marker topic... I always have both a large and small in my pocket and use the big one further out.  I've started carrying a little towel in my back pocket and have to have it and my big towel wet to wipe down my clubs and clean my ball.  Also, if there's a game I always carry a back up card, always keep my own score at the very least.

Besides a clean bum before tee off, make sure my naughty bits stay dry. At this age when weight gain and easy sweats near the nether region, a rash from my youth has visited me again, Jock Itch....

Livin' proof that Lefties are not naturally talented.

Shoes have to be extremely clean before the round. During the round, can't have anything on the toes. (grass / Marks / whatever). I can't swing a club until its cleaned.

Clubs all cleaned before the round. Outfit and shoes picked out the night before. (I play early morning and wife and daughter are not awake so have to be quick and quiet).

Shaft stickers have to be taken off too. Drives me nuts if its still on. Also when my buddies have it on their clubs, makes me want to bring goo gone and clean it up for them while we're playing. HAHAHA.

I think that's it... There's probably more but i don't even realize it..

I agree with this one.  I am far more prepped for an early morning Saturday golf round than I am for a workday.

Night before golf round:
-All clothes picked out, ironed.  
-Small snack / lunch packed because I hate teeing off starving.
-need to be quick and quiet in the morning to not wake son and wife
-coffee prepped night before with correct thermos

During round:
-keeping pace with group ahead (always keeping track of group behind because I don't want to feel stressed like I'm holding them up).
-ball in pocket on the teebox (for myself or anyone else in group)
-repair at least 2 ball-marks on every green
-pull pin quickly for rest of group
-etc...
