May 5: What’s in your bag?

Kelly's bag carries a lot of things!

This week’s “What’s in your bag?” feature comes from Kelly Littlefield, who calls three courses in Colorado “home field.”

But it’s not the courses that Kelly calls home that makes the bag unique. Nope. It’s that Kelly names every disc. Not only are the discs named, they are after race horses! In fact, it’s a superstition.

The drivers

It can be funny, however. Kelly says someone may call after finding a lost disc and might say “Is Van Gogh there?”

Kelly calls Optimist Park (Fort Morgan, Colo.); YMCA of the Rockies (Estes Park, Colo.) and Badlands (Federal Heights, Colo.) as home courses.

Good stuff, Kelly. And thanks for sharing what’s in your Fade Fly or Die bag!

Want to submit your bag and contents? Here’s what we need: A couple of photos of your bag and discs. Put together a list of everything you carry in the bag — from food to discs to anything else. Then maybe give a paragraph or two about your bag and if there’s anything you do between casual and tournament rounds etc. Finally, don’t forget your name, location and home course! Cell phone photos are fine, but please try and make it as high quality as possible. Grainy shots might not be able to be used. E-mail all of these things to pj [at] rattlingchains.com with the subject “What’s in my bag.”

  1. I carry the Gorilla Boy Simian. 16 inside, 6 in each side pocket and a total of 4 outside the bag in the Velcro strap/pouch (2 putters, Buzz, Star Coyote). One 32 oz water bottle in one of the bottle holder spaces, a bunch of Jack Links beef jerky, pencils, rules, chamois in a ziplock bag, travel size tube of ibuprofen and keys, bag tags (2), golf towel… that’s about it. Yes I carry toooo many discs but, if I lose one or want to try something new, I have backup discs to use when I need them. I LOVE the Simian with the built in seat!!!
