Anyone here have any little superstitions or things they keep to themselves during a round?

Here's a few of mine.

1). I don't use ball washers. Ever.
2). I always have 4 tees in my left pocket. Always.
3). I never play with a ball where the number is higher than 4.
4). I never play in a long sleeve shirt. Jacket yes, but it's always short underneath.
5). I never take my headcover to the teebox. I leave it on my bag.
6). I never pick up range balls if i find them on ajacent holes.

Ya, i'm screwed, i know.

Anyone else have any?

I know a guy that won't drink anything during the day of a round unless it has ice cubes in multiples of three. I've seen him send back drinks that have had more or less. I guess i'm not THAT insane.

I never take a mulligan. I found a long time ago, 1 mulligan will turn the tide of a round.

I never pull the pin out for shots from off the green.

I never tee up my ball in a patch of divots. They distract me.

I clean my clubs after every round. Also use a fresh towel for every round.

I line up the writing on my ball to the target line on the tee and greens. The writing MUST not be upside down. Don't ask me why.

I NEVER let hockey pucks near my 'nads. NEVER!

1) I never play golf with werewolves.

2) I keep shamrocks in my underwear on Friday the 13th.

3) While playing, I clean my clubs with a white rabbits foot. I dunk my clubs in a solution of formadehyde and iced tea after playing.

4) All my drinks have crushed ice - never cubes.

5) If a black cat dashes across the hole I am playing - I immediately throw a Pinnacle golf ball over my left shoulder. I then face the sun and bay loudly like a hound.

6) I never play golf when the moon is in the 3rd phase. Bowling yes - golf no.

7) I do 45 minutes of Tai Chi before each round.

8) If I play horribly on the front side - I change my left sock at the turn.

If I have double bogey or higher on the tenth - I remove the right sock altogether.

If I continue to play poorly on 11 and 12 - I burn both socks and place the ashes in the 13th hole.

9) If I have a score of 6 over on the front, 6 over on the back and a score of 6 on the last hole - I drive a silver stake through the heart of my opponent as he puts his clubs in his trunk in the parking lot.

8) I check the Feng Shui of each course before playing. If the first hole faces south - I go home immediately.

New superstition after today's round. I will ask my playing partner to move any stray twig or stick from around my ball. I don't know what kind of animals they allow on that course, but that was NOT a stick!!!!!!!!!!!!!
