Best towel is a clean one. Buying a golf towel= waste of money.

I bought the most expensive towel I could find as it guaranteed 4 strokes off my round. It didn't work but I think I was using it the wrong way.

I use a free Srixon towel I got from buying a dozen of their balls. I also carry an old towel that I wet down before my rounds to clean my wedges and grips.

I use an old Christmas-themed towel that my wife didn't need anymore. I can't imagine paying $8 for a towel with a brand name on it.

An old bath towel.......for me, it has to be big enough so I can wet half and keep the other half dry. I've carried the same one for more than 15 years, and it gets washed once a year whether it needs it or not!

regular white towel...nothing fancy or new...just throw it around my clubs, works fine.

I used to have a bridgestone golf towel but i lost it when I was playing in a tournament. It fell of my bag and never got it back.

I like my Tiger Woods towel because I like how it looks. Don't know what would constitute best though... other than the color. I like dark colors because it doesn't show the dirt so much and I'm too lazy to wash it more than once a year.

I use a Cavs towel that they gave out at the games. Its not like I am gonna bring it to a game and use it unless they give another, so this way i get some use and the towel is sporty.

Yeah, cleaning clubs with a dirty towel sounds like a great idea...

I play almost exclusively at 5:30 - 6:00 am so I pretty much clean my clubs every time I swing them. The towel is mostly just to take the loose grass off the clubface. I also use iron covers so that should really upset you.

The pro at the club had a big demo last year and I got free towels from everyone but I mainly use the mizuno one because its the biggest. All of them are tour towels so I use them all really.

I got three tour size towels of different brands which I rotate on. The best one is a Titleist towel, it's really fuzzy and easy to use. Use the towel on almost every shot, so it's an important part of my gear.

I'd like to try that towel - do you have to yell something while wiping your club? Like Pow or ShamWow!

I borrowed my wifes brand new oversized Wilson Staff towel, but once I got to the course I couldn't bear to get it dirty. I used a cloth napkin from the clubhouse and my shirt.

His total strokes gained is above the current squad average, solid ballstriking and pop, the third best birdie/bogie ratio, and he has a balanced game that should make him easy to pair with. Bubba's still crazy strong off the tee and on approach, but his short game & putting seem to have slipped this year. Probably a stronger option for better ball / fourball or maybe with the right partner in alternate shot / foursomes. His length is likely to be an advantage at Hazeltine if he isn't put up against one of the top Euro players with better all-around games in singles. Woodland, Horschel, or Steele, might be interesting options for better ball. Kuch has a solid overall game. is very consistent, and is stronger off the tee than Zach Johnson to boot so he could add to the squad - particularly in alternate shot. I wonder with Mickelson, Walker, Snedeker, and Johnson already on board if they don't need to be more plus on the driving though.
    • Sad. But, like the title of the old George Harrison album, All Things Must Pass. One night my brother and I were having dinner with our Mom. Somehow the subject of movies was raised, and Blazing Saddles and Young Frankenstein came up. We discovered that our Mom had never seen either film. So plans were made for a couple of "Movie Nights with Mom". My bro provided the DVD's, and we provided the food. My Mom being in her early 80's at the time, we weren't sure how she'd react to the films. I'm delighted to report that she howled with laughter. Mom always did have an active and acute sense of humor. She thanked us for showing her two of the funniest movies she had ever seen! RIP Gene Wilder.
    • For those who don't know, for my actual "job," I am a professional photographer. I recently picked up a few putters from a now out-of-business company called PLOP, and they are just gorgeous putters, so I had to photograph them and I wanted to share. I was looking for a center shafted putter, as it was what I was fit into. Unfortunately I can't stand the look of center shafted putters so every one I've ever tried was just not an option. That is, until I found an old (what would be original version) of a putter my grandfather had in his bag called a PLOP. I looked up this particular brand and found that it was no longer in business, but best of all, the owner/inventor of the putter made what he calls a CSH putter, that is Center shafted hosel, but the hosel is "floated" through the heel end of the putter, still welded and attached to the center. Even better, he was selling the rest of what he had milled on Ebay, including a few special putters. So I get to look down at what is a blade style, while still having my center shafted putter. It was a downright bargain for a milled putter, too.  I have in photography what we call GAS (Gear Acquisition Syndrome), and sadly it translates to golf, too. I ended up buying 3 putters. One is a very wonderful black PVD finish, and the other is a nickel PVD finish that was tour-stamped, both very limited editions. I will do my best to photograph these and upload at some point, too.  In any case, I wanted to share a few of the images here. Unfortunately I can't upload the full size quality files but hopefully everyone enjoys a few of these. On a side note, golf clubs are actually extremely fun photographic subjects.  (Wasn't sure if this would fall under "clubs," but I thought it was more of a golf story/tidbit with the pictures. When I find the time to sit down and create a blog, I can put them there.) Feedback welcome, of course.   -Andrew.
