What to use to clean Irons & Wedge grooves during round???

currently i use a small tee to clean the grooves off the irons & wedges when getting dirty. however, tee has become less & less sharper. i know i can get another tee but was trying to see if i can use something that will be permanantly.

i know about the wet towel & such but was looking for an equipment like a small tee but i guess doesn't wear.

thanks in advance.

I use a brass and nylon brush and a wet towel... why would you want anything else when this combo works to perfection?

I have a scrubbing brush I cut along the short side and put a lightweight chain through with a chainring holding it together. Then wipe the clubs down with a towel.

Not to state that this is a fact but i was recently out at golf galaxy looking at those brass nylon combo brushes and one of the employees told me that the brass side of that brush will damage the face of your clubs. I actually wanted some clarification on this too

If the brush is just nylon and brass it should not hurt an iron or wedge since most if not all are steel or steel alloy ( stainless ) true brass is softer and won't cut into them. Drivers, fairway woods and hybrids are softer and should only be cleaned with a wet towel. The brushes to stay away from are the phosphor bronze. They are harder than brass and can hurt club faces.

In hot weather, you have to wet down your club towel every three holes or so. Good to have second dry towel for hands.

If you play on sticky clay turf, it's hard to keep grooves or ball clean.

what about those frogger brushes, do they damage irons and wedges?

Nope. Those are actually the best kind of brushes to buy. I had one (Until I lost it....because I'm amazing at losing things....) and it worked wonders. But, I stick to a wet towel now. Ever notice how clean and free of dirt your grooves are in your clubs when someone cleans them with a wet towel after your round (if done right)? A wet towel is the best thing for a dirty club. You can also get your frustrations out by rubbing as hard as you can and you won't damage your club

And afterwards, you'll be like "OO SHINY". And get distracted. And play terribly. It's a win-win situation.

I've used other brushes before but finally last spring I bought the frogger and couldn't be happier. Great brush, groove cleaner, etc. The changeable head is awesome. On top of that the retractable cord and big handle make it so easy to use. Highly recommended!

    • So with it being the offseason still, I find myself reading and watching a lot of topics on the sport. Lately i came across Scott Fawcett and his strategy for teebox decisions. YouTube has a few videos of his but basically, for people who drive it over 270 pretty consistently, gameplanning should consider any trouble that is within a 70 yard dispersion. Now I already have gamegolf so i can see some dispersion patterns but I obviously dont tag the shots where I completely lose a ball so data is missing. I decided to go to a sim bay using a GCQuad and did a 15 shot driver test. In the end I averaged 268 off the tee in total distance. However off those 15 shots....3 were massive misses of 45, 52, and 60 yards offline. In real life at my home course and most trees courses I play those are lost balls with bad penalties applied. They would only be slightly salvageable at a course with adjacent fairways really. I would say when you look at my gamegolf rounds, the GCQuad result of 3/15 being lost/OB is accurate. So it made me start wondering as someone who has read LSW and Every Stroke Counts and understands advancing the ball far but safely.....how wide of dispersion is considered unusable for a driver? Until my swing improved would I be better off statistically going down to my 16* mini driver or just 21* hybrid? ( next time I do the simulator I was going to do dispersion tests for those)
    • While it may seem like a good idea, you can't just "factory reset" your swing. Better to just focus on a priority and make that better. Rather than trying to achieve a certain kind of swing, just improve on what you currently have.
    • OK -  let me make one final post on this as this horse is well and truly beaten. Just so that I'm fully clear on where you stand in the context of this particular discussion.  Please indulge me. 1. What they DID matters. 2. Why we THINK they did it doesn't matter. 3. Your (and my) opinion of what they did or why they did it is irrelevant 4. The only relevant discussion is the penalty for the infringement. 5. A person's opinion of the character any of the people under discussion has nothing to do with the thread. 6. Anything beyond that is essentially moot. Is that a fair summation?  
    • Not true. Then the conversation ends there, as one cannot suspend a player based on what you think they were thinking.
    • The video evidence is conclusive, I believe, but I understand the semantics of the notion of "proof". I get that. Yep  - I am assuming intent and I fully believe that they intended to cheat. I could not prove it in court and my prejudice may mean that they would have a field day with me in court. I don;t want to be  Suffice to say that it is obvious to many that they both deliberately and blatantly cheated - but you cannot prove intent because you can't prove what someone thought. I am not going to assume that you are playing the devil's advocate or simply  trying not to prove something unprovable or making a philosophical point - I get that you are basically coming down on the side of what can or cannot be reasonably assumed. And that is more than reasonable. I am happy to be o the side of Peter Kostis, Brooks Koepka, Cam Smith and presumably many others. And yes.....I get that your critique of my position applies equally to them. And that is perfectly fair.
