never crosses my mind except when putting my glove on, have to make sure it's not slid up under it.  After that it feels strange not to have it on.

I wear my watch 24/7, as well as my livestrong. Interesting to note that Phil Mickelson wears a watch when he plays golf. He started wearing a watch when he was playing in junior golf tournaments. He said that if he watched other kids swings it would mess up his rhythm. So while they were swinging he would look at his watch. I don't think he looks at his watch anymore, but he still wears his watch.

I always wear a watch, have the Timex digital with the sweep second hand one. :)   My question to those who don't wear a watch while playing.....How do you know whether you are playing a 4 1/2 hour round or a 5 hour round?? :)

I stopped to wear a watch maybe 2-3 years ago:  it was always stuck in my shirtsleeves when I wanted to watch it!  I'm also using my cell phone to check the time.  But I got one sticked with my new Daytek golf bag :)

I usually wear it during warm up and on the putting green then take it off and put it in the bag at the first tee.


Same here.
I wear my watch loose, so if I have it on when I'm playin it'll slide around.
So it goes in the valuables pocket along with the keys, phone, and what ever else I put in there

I cannot wear a watch while golfing.  Far too distracting to me.

My golf buddy (wrx member MPH) gave me a unique little device that tells time and also monitors UV ratings from the sun.  It's a great gadget that clips onto a golf bag.

In fact, a user can enter skin type and hair color and the SPF of the the sunscreen you're wearing to form an equation that determines a safe amount of time to spend in the sun, or the optimum time to reapply sunscreen.  It even has an alarm to let you know when the outdoor UV levels are changing (i.e. - going from cloudy to sunnier conditions) or when you're likely to start burning.

I simply enter my skin type (fair skin, freckles) and hair color (red) and the SPF of the sunscreen (15).  I then enter the approximate time I will spend outdoors (four hours for a round of golf on a muni course).  After the gadget does some initial calculations, it begins to emit a loud "beep" about every 3 minutes, letting me know that I'm a complete and utter idiot for even being in the sun and that I'm burning to a crisp.  :crazy:  I've learned to ignore it, but my playing partners find it distracting during their backswing.  teehee.

BIG watch nut here.  I have always worn one while playing and it's never bothered me one bit.  And I typically play with my Panerai...and that is HUGE.  But again, it does not effect me one bit.

All the ho's wear the new TM "SuperQuartz" watch which is of course only available in black for now.   It features MWT which stands for "Matching Watch Time" according to the TM Rep I spoke with.  

Like the Driver it was named for the SuperQuartz also features eMOI which was not specifically defined by the TM Rep I spoke with, but it most likely means every Month Old Inventory.
