ACCESSORIES

Rain gloves for both hands; 3 Leather Titleist Players gloves; 1 dozen Titleist Pro-V1x golf balls; blue, black, orange and green sharpies; one white golf towels; approx. 50 natural wood golf tees; range finder w/extra battery; Band-Aids; sun screen for face and lips; umbrella; aim stick, metal yardstick, 4 ball markers, poker chip.

WHY

“I carry sharpies to put identification markers on my golf balls, and the aim stick to double check alignment when warming up prior to the round. I use the metal yardstick to practice short putts by rolling the ball the length of the yardstick without falling off the edges. I use the poker chip for various short game practice drills and to mark my ball on the putting green,” said Martin.
