I don't spit on my clubs ... show them respect!

I use a great towel, fantastic towel, best towel I've ever used. Don't get me wrong, I love other towels, but they are in the wrong business on the golf course. The only towel, and it's amazing, is the Spotless Swing Towel. Now that's a golf towel -- lightweight, pocketed, lanyard, and has an area, a fantastic area - synthetic, really high tech scrubbing material. Amazing, just wet the inside for cleaning your custom fit clubs, fantastic, and you can dry the clubs with the amazingly thin and soft exterior of the towel. In  a pinch, you can even wash your hands and dry them. Simply amazing -- the Spotless Swing Towel.

When I first started caddying....waaaay too long ago to admit, the first thing I was taught was to always carry a full sized bath towel, about a third of which is kept wet. Every club is wiped off after every shot. I've done so ever since.

This is exactly the same for me.

Besides the fantastic Spotless Swing Towel, which is amazing if you carry, I use another super product, everyone should use it, fits in your pocket without interfering with your other bulges -- the D Brush -- stiff bristles with an end that fits between your fingers -- super for grooves - no other comes close. Practically weightless, only surprised I didn't think of it myself. Did you hear that I redesigned Doral myself so golfers like DJ and Bubba won't dominate -- no more big hitters -- you've got to play the game, short hitters need love, too. Use the D Brush .

I'm constantly spitting on my irons & wedges and brushing them off to get the mung out of the grooves & wiping them down with a towel - do it all the time during a round.    I'm discreet about it but it grosses my wife out ...

Just using a towel or a dry brush doesn't cut it.    Curious how everybody else does it or if you just play with dirty clubs ?    I'd like to know how pro caddies do it ... they must always have a saturated wet towel on the bag ??

I wet one end of my towel at the start of the round and wipe my clubs after every shot (I'm not a spitter) - I don't hold up traffic to do it.  I either clean it immediately while my companions are hitting, or I keep it in my hand until I've gotten to the next stopping point, then clean it and put it away.  I also have a two sided brush with nylon bristles on one side and brass bristles on the other for cleaning the grooves.  Some courses have ball and club washers mounted on the carts, and that makes it easy to keep my clubs clean.  I wish all courses would wise up to that.  I hate playing with dirty clubs.

+1  I absolutely love this towel!

aside from clean grooves helping to put spin on the ball on your approach shots, does clean grooves make a difference with any other shot? will dirty grooves affect trajectory on a fairway shot for example?

Spin affects trajectory.  Spin provides lift, which helps a ball carry further, and land more vertically.

Indeed, my clubs are cleaned after each shot. I just use a typical cotton golf towel. I wet it before my round and keep it that way throughout.

I never heard of the Spotless Swing Towel, or the D Brush. Both products sound good to me. What the hell, I just ordered one of each.

Thanks, man.

I'm mainly concerned with my irons 7 through wedges since I need all the spin I can get, my home course has very firm greens that are difficult to hold, I take the wire side of the brush to make sure they are completely clean.

I hope you ordered a pack of the D Brush - I put 2 in the pocket of my bag, and one always winds up in my shorts and on the dresser, or in the wash. They last a long time, but I lose track of them... then I gather them again.

well, seems the majority consensus is to get into a routine before the round which involves wetting a towel.   Makes sense ... just never thought to do it - it will take a trip to the locker room or bathroom before tee off - I'll just have to allow time for that.   THX to all !

    • if you can't reach the par 4's in 2 shots, then, i dunno what to tell you, other than youre playing the wrong tees lol.  golf is hard man, eagles are tough, and hole in ones are near impossible believe it or not there are pga tour players who get a hole in one in a tour event and it's literally their first hole in one EVER, meanwhile some low handicappers have multiple hole in ones in their lifetime.  I have 0, but I'll take near par rounds over a hole in one while shooting 80 any day.   I only just this year got my first eagle after driving a 260 yard par 4 and draining a 15 foot putt.  I've started to come close on some par 5's this year too as I'm now starting to hit the green on 2nd shots, but again, my focus is not on getting the eagle but rather setting up easy birdies and making pars as my 2019 goal was to break 80, which I now do regularly, so my next goal is to shoot par on a full 70/72 course.    as far as advice goes, you probably just have to be better.  eagles start with a good drive and a solid 2nd shot.  Know your distances, and be a solid ball striker so your shots actually go those distances 80% of the time, not just once in a blue moon.  I mean, unless youre getting 3-4 birds a round, what makes you think you deserve to get eagles? 
    • Welcome to the site from a fellow, albeit more seasoned, Daytonian. 
    • Interesting. Sometimes at the range I'll play a "simulated" round. I pick a local course I know well and imagine I'm there. First hole, 399yd par 4, hit Driver from the tee. I pick a particular target that represents the fairway. How far I hit it determines the club I pull for my approach, and I pick a different target to aim at so I'm not hitting on the same line every shot. And so on.  On the green do some specific drills, like Michelson's circle drill. Also, use a couple of tees to make yourself a "gate" that is about an inch wider than your putter. Put a ball between the tees and stroke some putts. This will train you to strike the ball in the center of the putter face. Heel and toe strikes will mess with you.  In addition to sharpening your short game, if lag putting is a problem then yes, you'll have to work on it. There's a thread on the "Swing Thoughts" page, I believe, titled "Do NOT accelerate when putting", or something to that effect. I've worked on this since I read it and it has improved my putting, especially my lag putting, a lot!  Sometimes, just work on putts from 3' to 5'. If you make a bad lag, and you will, we all do, those are the ones you have to make to avoid 3 putting. And, if you stick your approach close, those are the ones you want to 1 putt. I've heard more than one pro say that it's important to see the ball go in the hole! Over and over again. Practice success!
    • I am playing a set of Mizuno MP-18 MMCs, and really like them. They have a thin cavity, thin top line, and minimal offset. The SC version would also work. New MP-20s would be similar. Also if you don't mind a bit thicker top, something like the Callaway Rogue Pros are smaller headed with very little offset.  Again every company makes a small headed cavity back at this point.  Might also want to check out some of the component options. Maltby has some heads that would fit the bill if you don't care about what name is stamped on your irons.
    • True that! There was a time when I played a lot of tennis. I, and a friend, would play almost every day after work, and we got pretty good. He was 6'3", I'm 5'9", and he liked to take me deep and charge the net, Once I figured how to hit a deep topspin lob, he stopped doing that!
