PGA Tour veteran Kenny Perry let us take a look inside his golf bag. As you can see, it has more than clubs and balls.
CLUBS: The tour limits each golfer to 14. Perry has a driver, a 3-wood, a fairway wood, a 3-iron through pitching wedge, a 56-degree wedge, a 61-degree wedge and a putter.
BALLS: Perry keeps a dozen but rarely uses that many during a round.
TOWELS AND GLOVES: Perry packs three of each but typically uses only one unless they get wet because of rain.
SUNGLASSES, UMBRELLA AND RAIN SUIT: This is Florida.
MEDICINE: Perry keeps eye drops and several kinds of pain relievers in case of a headache, muscle soreness or fever. He packs small bandages and tape in case he develops blisters. There also is a small tube of hand lotion.
SNACKS: Perry packs peanuts, crackers, energy bars, etc., in case he gets hungry.
CELL PHONE: Perry doesn't like to be out of touch, but PGA officials demand all cell phones be turned off during play.
RULE BOOK: Just in case.
YARDAGE BOOK: This is full of notations about how he played each hole previously. He typically makes note of everything from the distance from certain landmarks to the best angles to play toward the green.
MONEY: Most golfers keep a few bucks on hand for side bets during practice rounds.
