25 posts in this topic

Looking for one of those bag-attachable devices. Any recommendations or things to avoid?

Thanks
Paul

I recommend 'Oral-B' or 'Colgate'. New toothbrush for the bag....old one for cleanup after a round.

I found one of these club cleaners called, Groove Tube, at the driving range and I have never turned back. It has changed the way I keep my clubs clean. I now do it after every shot or so, instead of at home after the round when the dirt has built up. Just using a towel has never worked for me. I feel this thing is desirable to the wire brushes because you can wet the clubs to get them perfectly clean. Great buy and I would highly recommend it.

Nothing to avoid, but the same company that makes the frogger amphibian towel makes a really nice bag attachable brush for $15.

I have this, and love it. It works great.

Sorry to pull up this old thread but it was the most relevant thread I could find.

What are people's opinion on wire brushes? I have one similar to the Frogger but feel that the wire brush is too harsh even for my irons. Can these brushes do damage to my grooves or am I just being paranoid?

I just bought the Frogger brush. It's great. It is attached with a string, so it can stay attached to the bag. It also has a replaceable brush which adds longevity to it.

Your Frogger should of came with an extra brush which has no metal. I took mine off as I wouldn't think of using a metal brush on my Burner 2.0's.

You're being paranoid.  The brass bristles are softer than the steel of a clubhead, even forged.  No way you are going to damage the grooves with a manual brush.  Maybe if you used a brush mounted on a bench grinder or drill, you might have a case, but even then you'd have to be awfully aggressive with it to do any significant damage.  I have forged AP-2 irons and I brush the grooves after almost every shot.

You should be alright w/those brass brushes. I used them for quite a number of years. I find w/the Frogger brush though, the nylon bristles are good enough to get the job done so I no longer use brass bristles on my clubs.

I wanted to check this out but what the hell? Did they use like a 0.5 Megapixel camera to take that picture, I think my old phone in 2002 took better pictures.

There's more damage being done to the grooves when you hit the ball and dirt is smashed between ball and club. The brass bristles are fine on a club face, like Fourput said, it's much softer than the club head.  I've never liked using nylon on my clubs.  I think brass does a much better job.

Frogger is a great brush for using on the course.  I like the retractable cord.

      How does the bank lose money? Is inflation that bad that the 30,000 euros of interest is not enough to cover it? Is it because the bank no longer has that money at their disposal to invest for a potentially larger return on their investment when compared to a mortgage?

      paradoxal bank fact : in our banks in france if you take a mortgage of 100 000 euros for 20 years at 2,5 interest rate you will probably pay close to 30 000 euros of interest. this seams huge to customers. nevertheless the bank might loose money or have à max a 200 euros margin per year. the only way we make money is on the mortgage insurance policy part and getting a long time customer in the bank.

    • Myrtle Beach in early March part duex
      Okay I think you may be a little confused on your location...You said that you are staying at Holiday Sands North close to the Boardwalk.  Your Hotel is centrally located in Myrtle Beach.  A lot of people not familiar of the area mistakenly think that "North Myrtle Beach" is referring to an area in the Northern part of Myrtle Beach.  Actually it is a separate city that is located a good ten miles from where you are staying.  The closest "North Myrtle Beach" courses to you would be the Barefoot Resort courses which are about 13 miles from you and are considered higher end courses where you will be paying probably around $125 per round to play unless you book a package deal or play with a member.  The next closest North Myrtle Beach courses which are mid-tiered and a little more price friendly that may seem to be what you are looking for are a little farther north into North Myrtle located probably about 15 to 17 miles from where you are staying.   The closest courses to where you are staying include Myrtlewood, Pine Lakes Country Club, River Oaks Plantation, World Tour, and the Legends courses.  All are probably right within the amount of travel time that you are looking at.  I would second the earlier poster that you contact @bnlongdriver.  Tell him (Brian) what you are looking for and he will set you up nicely.  I would definitely avoid GolfNow for anything related to Myrtle Beach.  Very few courses down there work with Golf Now and the few that do are lower tiered courses that you probably wouldn't want to play as there are many better choices for the money that you will be playing.  Looks like you will be going right as the peak golf season is starting to get underway so last minute deals, although probably available, will be a bit more difficult to come by.  However, if this is the route that you want to take, again I would contact Brian as he has the ability to get a lot of very good "48 hour" rates.  If you go ahead and contact him now and let him know that's the way you want to go, he will be able to keep you in mind and as the time of your arrival nears will have a better idea of what to find you.
