Here are a few interesting facts about the secrets in his golf bag.

1. What is the most prized possession in your golf bag?

My most prized possessions are my wood head covers. I have a Husky (Shadow), a Snowman (Olaf), and a Tiger (Sher Khan)

2. What are the must have things in the bag before you start your round?

The most important thing for me as a must have, is Sunscreen, a spare glove, and lots of brand new golf balls!

3. Do you remember your first golf bag?

I think my first golf bag was an unbranded yellow bag, which became a piece of work within a month coz of reckless handling! I was just 14 and had no idea how to maintain it.

4. What are the clubs that you carry in your bag?

I carry 14 clubs. The irons are Cleveland 588Ts. My hybrids (3&4), 3 Wood, and Driver are Taylormade rocket fuels, and my putter is Odyssey. I have also have a Titleist lob wedge.

5. How do you mark your ball before each round?

My ball mark really depends on my mood. But for the most part I mark my ball with a purple dot right next to the number on either side. I like a simple mark because anything fancy could potentially distract me during my round.

6. Do you have a special bond with your bag? Any particular sentiments associated with it?

I don’t have a bond and such with my bag, but yea, I do treat it with utmost care and respect. It is important to take care of your equipment primarily coz it’s your bread and butter. I also do it as a mark of respect for the sport I have grown to love.

7. Can you recollect a funny anecdote about your bag, while traveling or playing?

Well, this was when I was in college, and my team had to leave early morning for a tournament. It was the first of the season, and we were all very excited. I was so excited, that I forgot to take my golf bag with me! I had to borrow a second hand set from the club house to play that tournament. When one of the coaches came to know what had happened, he gifted me a small plastic golf bag with little plastic clubs in it, along with a note that said,”use this just in case you forget your golf bag again”. I learnt my lesson the hard/hilarious way! Haha
