Just posted on another thread and it got me thinking.

I wont use anything but white wooden tees and if I cant find one it really makes me feel uncomfortable.

Wondered what superstitions the rest of you have?

We had this post ages ago and it turns out I have many OCD traits.

I have recently started to regrip like Segio before a shot, something I need to get out of.

I have to touch my lip with my right thumb before each shot, click my left heal against my right and waggle my backside. That’s even before all my swing thought start……………..

It did cross my mind that this would have been discussed before.

Why dont we just leave it particularly as we seem to have attracted an idiot.

It’s a good post Nico and would be interesting to here the newbie’s routines etc. It’s a shame one member seems to be ruining it for every one.

Ignore it, Just add both users to the ignore list.

I dont really have any superstions but i have just figured out my pre shot routine which i intend to stick to like glue.

2 quick practice swings, stand behind the ball, picture shot and pick somethin close to ball to line up with, deep breath and go!

My football superstitions, i have too wear a thin pair of socks under my normal, i have to have my shin pads taped with silver duck tape, and MUST wear number 6.

Maybe i should do this on the course!

Haha, do you think i would get away with a number 6 on the back of my fave callaway polo.

I could took my football socks into a pair of plus 2's (is that what there called?)

Thanks for keeping this going chaps even when under attack.

Always keep 2 ball markers in my pocket.

Played 9 yesterday evening and think I might be starting a new one.

Went to play Royal North Devon a couple of times last yeear and bought myself a couple of markers both times. Have putted really well since using them,then my mate bought me a Chelsea one to go on Hols with. Putted like a drain all week and again last night, RND is coming out of retirement!!
