Do you care what your golf towels look like?

41 posts in this topic

I am a walker. I carry two towels on my bag. One towel is used to clean clubs/balls and the other is kept fairly clean and is used to dry my hands. I've been ribbed by many playing partners how nasty my "cleaning" towel looks. Truth be told, I haven't washed it in several years and it's more brown than the original white color it was. I don't care. It still does it's job. Do you keep all your towels clean or do you carry a nasty, dirty one like I do?

i'm with you: two towels, one for club/ball cleaning and one (fairly clean) for hand drying, etc.

i usually wash the cleaning towel after every round, but at this point even bleach won't get it as white as it once was. no big deal.

I am the same, two towels but my club cleaning one matches by bag.  The other is a black color that goes with the set up as well.

Nope. I have a tri-fold Mizuno towel that hangs from a carabiner. It's blue, my bag is black. The outside of it is used for balls and clubs. The inside is for drying my hands and wiping my forehead. Only time it gets washed is when it has a lot of dried mud on it.

I have 2 towels hanging on there and 2 more in a pocket of the bag. I put those extra 2 in there one day after trying to play through a 5 towel rain storm with only 2 towels. Ha ha!

One is supposed to be for clubs or balls (like you guys do) but half the time I don't pay attention to which one I grab so they all end up dirty after a round when it's wet.

I do take them off and wash them anytime I notice they are dirty.

i rarely wash the "clean" one.

i use the Guy Laundry Theorem: if it sits in the laundry basket (or on my bag) long enough, it eventually becomes clean again.

The first use of it's is appropriate because it is a shortened version of it is .  The second it's is wrong because you are implying possession. The correct word would be its in the sentence It still does its job.

And I haven't washed mine once this entire season but it is black so it doesn't matter.  Throw it in the wash!! Just not with your nice golf shirts

I guess its good practice to proof your posts really carefully so others don't think its the poster being ignorant... I agree with the dark towel thing. Being an independent insurance agent, I order personalized towels through the company. For some reason, they only offer them in white ...

I use a Frogger towel for the clubs, keep it wet on the inside so no matter how dirty it is, you can't see it.  My other two towels, one for hands, one for sweat are black.  I usually keep an extra set of towel in the car so I swap them out after each round to wash them.  They don't look dirty but I don't like wiping my face with a towel covered in dried up sweat.

Ive got a Mizuno tour towel that I use to wipe any mud or grass off of my clubs after a shot.  Its been a couple years since I bought it and have never washed it.  You cant even really tell its a Mizuno towel anymore because the runbird logo is pretty well covered by mud and grass.

Ive never had anyone harass me about it and honestly, if anyone ever did, I would laugh and tell them to mind their business.

When mine gets dirty enough that it starts to become ineffective or it's tough to find a clean spot to use, I wash it.

I am not concerned what my towels look like however my wife sure does! We often play together and she is grossed out by dirty towels. My towels are always clean and fresh as they are washed and replaced every couple of weeks.

I have a towel that hangs from the bag that is mostly clean, use it to wipe my hands, dry balls that come out of the washer. In my bag are 3-4 yellow microfiber auto detail towels that I use to clean clubs and I carry one to every green to clean balls after marking it. Usually it's somewhat wet from dipping it in the ball washer on the cart. I wash those as needed, every other round or so. If it gets too dirty there's clean ones in the bag.

I wash mine once a week, regardless of appearance. Again, those that know me know it's a sickness. I can't help it.

I can't even wear my golf shirt unless I iron the collar before I head out. Dirty towels and shoes are my biggest annoyances!

I carry a full-sized bath towel.  Half wet.  It gets washed once a year whether it needs it or not.....

My golf buddies refuse to touch it.   I once left it on the green and it caught back up to me on it's own 2 holes later!

    • What'd You Shoot Today?
      76 today 36 on the front 40 on the back I started off hitting the ball better than I ever had. I didn't miss a fairway until somewhere on the back 9 and the only thing that kept me from going low was not being able to convert on key birdie opportunities. Had a real good look at shooting under par but I let my swing get a little quick on the final holes as I played the closing three at +4. Despite a couple errant tee shots and a 4 -putt (yes, a 4-putt...), this was a pretty clean round for me. I feel good going into a 4 day break.  
    • The Tiger Woods/PED Thread
      Tiger never got "so big." Have you seen the dude in person? He was not an imposing figure. This is a myth. I get that he can look pretty stacked on TV, but he's not: his shirts were tight, and he was fit, but he wasn't "so big." Like most men, he filled out from the time he was 20 until he was 26, 27…
    • The Tiger Woods/PED Thread
      Wrong again! I loved Tiger when he was out there dominating the game. He was great for golf, bringing new fans and attention to the sport. I attended the WGC Bridgestone in Akron when Tiger was in his ascendancy. I tried to follow him, but it was impossible! He had to be dragging 10,000 people around the course! But I, like many others, began to wonder when Tiger got so big. Remember when he first came on tour? A skinny string bean with big, thick glasses. When he showed up at Stanford it was his teammate, Notah Begay, who tagged him with the nickname "Urkel"! Even though Woods and Begay became friends, I don't think Tiger liked "Urkel" very much. And it's been reported that Tiger didn't like the idea of golfers not being considered "real" athletes either. So, if Tiger was juicing he never got caught. Neither did Bonds, Sosa or McGwire. There is no proof, but suspicions remain. It's kind of sad to see Tiger in his current state, trying to claw his way back to the tour. No doubt he has enough money to last the rest of his and his kid's lives, but you don't get to where he was unless you are competitive. I think that might be what Tiger misses the most. I just remembered that he named his yacht "Privacy" because, at the time, that is what he craved. Well, he has plenty of it now. Wonder how that's sitting with him?

      Black Mass
      The story about the infamous crime lord Whitey Bulger. It starred Johnny Depp as Whitey Bulger. Benedict Cumberbatch played his brother, and US Senator Billy Bulger. This was an enthralling movie to watch. I give it a tap in Birdie. I give Johnny Depp an birdie performance. He was totally convincing playing Whitey Bulger.  Kung Fury
      This is a little gem I found when I was hanging out with my friends just skimming through Netflix. This is a movie that was crowd funded through kickstarter. It has that cheesy 80's action movie coupled with cheesy kung-fu movie feel to it. It just works brilliantly to give you an over the top 30 minutes of enjoyment. I give it an birdie for outstanding exaggerated fun and enjoyment.

      Watching Steph make clutch 3s from mid court routinely must be like watching Spieth putt those 15-20 footers knowly there always a chance goes in no matter how tough the green is
