Getting frisky with yourself before a round is a recipe for bad scores.  With another person, fine.  Yourself, not so much.

Whaaaaat! No chokin da chicken, beat the meat, spank da monkey, slap salami, tooting ya skin flute or chucking custard before a round!! Hehe...

Same here. Except I use GI irons. Mizuno JPX 900 HM to be exact. I have headcovers for all my clubs. Can't stand bag chatter and I try to keep my clubs in good condition just in case I want to resell, which is quite often.

I just thought of one reading another post on here: People who call pitch marks on a green divots.

Divot is when a club swings and DIGS and removes earthen soil.
A Pitch mark shows the point at which the ball PITCHED onto the green, often resulting in a depression on the surface.
Also, a pitch mark is not a ball mark/er...

think of it like this, and I hope the supers and maintenance staff make this clear on the scorecards: replace or refill all divots, repair all pitch marks....

thanks, Ill see myself out.

I don't know if this qualifies, but I hit 30 10 foot putts every evening, religiously.   Been doing it for at least 5 years, since I got my Big Moss indoor green.

It kills me when I'm away from home, lol....Weird I guess.

If decide to test a previously owned club on course, it must be regripped with a new matching grip to others currently in use for that club type.

All grips have to match. Not just brand/stlye, but they all have to be the exact same size after installing them on my clubs. It's kind of a pain when my wedges are .580 butt, .600 irons and .640 driver. Creativity with different undersized grips and tape gets them exactly where I want them. Also they are all ribbed 10* open.

Among many other things, having my clubs in the proper place in my bag. When I play in USGA tourneys and take a buddy to caddy for me this can really become an issue, and yes, it has affected my play. I’ve actually found it easier to have my wife caddy for me (she just drives a cart) because she already knows I’m a nut so even if she were to put a club in the wrong spot, which she tries very hard not to do, she won’t be bothered if I then correct her mistake.

I have a weird ocd thing about the golf balls I use... I hate using balls with the #1 for some strange reason.  Probably shanked one years back, and now I blame the number. I always use 2, 3, or 5 if I can.

Not concerning equipment, I know I have OCD's in this area, but my OCD on the course is when the course is pretty busy, a few short waits, and there's 4 singles in gas-powered wheelchairs behind me, some standing next to their ball wanting to play through, when there's nowhere to go. I end up hurrying my shots with a result of lengthening my wait time.  I know it's my course managements fault, they should pair these singles up, but it never occurs.  We play in less the 3 1/2 hours, not a slow play problem.

Iím not OCD about anything anywhere. Iím the least ocd person I know.

That said, I try to be ocd about routine because Iíve read this in a few books etc. So, Iíve spent the better part of the last two years finding a routine that I like. And guess what...it hasnít done a damn thing for my scores.

What Iíve come to believe is that it is routine coupled with getting yourself ready for the shot. In other words, just obsessively following a routine for routineís sake is basically useless. But if that routine is designed to get you ready to pull the trigger and commit to a shot, then it becomes useful. But that, by definition, will mean that the routine has to vary a little (and will drive the ocd types crazy).
