How often do you clean your clubs? - Page 2

post #19 of 78

Before each round. I get embarrassed showing up with dirty clubs. I clean them all up with a little windex, and a brass brush.

I also think of the investment I have made in my clubs. I like to take care of anything I've spent that much money on.

After every round.   I hate starting out with dirty clubs...

 

During the round, as needed, I will wipe out the grooves with either my thumb or, if that doesn't work, while my playing partner is hitting their shot, I will use either a brush I have attached to my bag or the club washer attached to my cart (depending on which is needed).

After every round.  Clean clubs are happy clubs.

the fact that I am still unable to hit an iron while making a divot.. i don't need to clean that much.

 

so.. i don't spend any time cleaning.

After reading this thread yesterday I went ahead and cleaned my clubs.

 

So I'm changing my answer to whenever this thread gets bumped or a new one gets made.

Behold the power of shame!

I clean them every time that I use them.  At the range I use they have a bucket of water about every ten hitting stations.  Since I'm usually the first one there when I go and it doesn't get busy for a few hours after opening I have one that I use every time that I switch to a different club.  I'm just more comfortable hitting an iron when the grooves are clean.

Good suggestion.  For many years after taking up golf I never cleaned the grips, not even once.  Finally I realized that it might be a good idea to do it and discovered how much more control I had with really clean grips. I had a big problem with loosening and then retightening my grip at the top and slippery grips were making it worse.  I finally had all of my clubs regripped (after about 10 years) and now clean the grips regularly - what a difference!  Golf is hard enough without having a good hold on the stick.

 

I really appreciate it when driving ranges provide buckets of water for cleaning.  Not a big effort for them surely - why don't they all?

Yep, want to play better? I would say clean grips are probably more important than a clean clubface, besides I like leaving a perfectly smashed round area of grass on the low center of the clubface sometimes, strokes my ego a bit.a3_biggrin.gif

I think clean grips are more important than a clean club face. The biggest wrecker of a swing, imo, is gripping the club too tightly. If your grips are slick/dirty, that's exactly what you will do.

 

A clean club face gives you good visual reinforcement for sure and that's important, but dirty/slick grips will absolutely kill your swing. Watch how often a pro wipes down his/her grip, especially pros that don't wear a glove like Freddie, before they hit a shot.

Clean the grooves after every shot, and the heads after every round, while quickly wiping down the shafts and grips.

I wipe them off after every shot.  I usually give them a full cleaning (grooves and grips) after each round or every other round.

God, my clubs are so damn dirty. I like to keep a towel on my bag to keep them clean, and when I have a towel on my bag my clubs stay very clean, but every time I put a towel on my bag I lose it after a few rounds. Usually the part of the towel where you attach it to your bag rips for me, and then I just have it wrapped around my clubs for a few more round, and then eventually I go to wash a club and the towel is gone never to be seen again.

My clubs have never seen a bucket of water......

 

 

....but I clean the clubface and grooves before every shot.

post #33 of 78

i do clean the grooves when they are dirty during a round.

Heads are cleaned after every shot with a brass brush and a towel.

Full cleaning grip to tips every couple of weeks.

Bag boys?  Where do I find these?  I've played for 40 years and only seen them a couple of times, at resort courses.  Not even at all resort courses, only the fancier ones.

I clean them with a wet towel after a shot.
