My Member Review

The Players Towel comes in two sizes and has two printing options.  The larger of the 2 towels is the Tour Towel, which is 22" x 40" and included a slit in the middle to slip your putter through.  They also offer the Mini Tour Towel which is 16"x24" and includes a bag clip, not a putter slit.

You can get these towles embroidered or printed, using dye sublimation.  The embroidered option incluces one 4" logo or text included for free, witha  setup fee charged for custom logos.  The printed option gives you the optionof filling the entire towel with logos/images with unlimited color options and no set up fees.

This review covers the printed tour towel with a magnificent TheSandTrap.com logo, which sells for $24.99.

My first impression when I took it out of the package (which was a typical yellow mailing envelope) was that this thing is HUGE.  I could (and might) use it to dry my 2 terriers.  It looked good...very soft, chamois-like feel, green stitching around the edges as well as finishing the putter slit.  The dying process looked good too, with crisp lines around the perimeter of the letters and logo.

I put my putter through the hole, leaving it hanging from my bag, and hit the links.  It was a damp, early morning round last week, a great opportunity to see what the towel could do.

After my approach shot, I used the towel for the first time to clean my clubs.  It couldn't be easier or more convenient.  The towel hangs conveniently from your putter.  I few quick wipes of the clubface with the towel, I put the club in the bag and away I went.  In the past I was never consistent about keeping my clubs clean.  Never again, with such a large towel hanging from my bag it couldn't be easier.

I got to the first green, grabbed my putter and towel in one swipe and was immediately impressed with having the putter slit.  In the past when I needed to take a towel on the green I would waste time detaching my old golf towel.  And when I was done, I'd rarely reattch it to my bag, I'd just put in in the basket in the golf cart.  I had been living like an animal.

Things dried out a bit my the time I hit the back 9.  I decided to wet one corner of the towel to help to better clean my ball and clubs.  Initially the heavy dose of water I applied to the corner of the towel beaded up a bit, but I was able to saturate it and it stayed wet for the majority of the back nine.   Here's the towel after the round:

When I finished the round I decided to test its durability by washing it. I washed it on cold and tumble dried it on low.  I didn't pretreat any really muddy spots.  The towel cleaned up very well, with the exception of a faint brown shadow remained where the deepest mud had been.  

Overall I love the Players Towel, I recommend it and I'm sure I'll be getting another one in the future.  The only thing I'd do differently is I'll get a darker color in the future so it doesn't show the dirt as much.

    • I don’t think anything they do will make a meaningful impact on pace of play except keeping players on the clock and enforcing it. Without books they may just spend more time reading the green since they don’t have anything to help them. I just don’t see where players would get the incentive to play faster if they think spending their allot time will help them score better. Many players play fast and enjoy keeping a good pace, but with 125 players out there, there will always be many that take their time. The Masters has banned books, so some players already has some experience with it. Do they play faster there? The greens at Augusta are difficult and it’s a special tournament, so maybe they spend their time even without books. Perhaps not the best tournament to compare with. I came across this article: https://www.golfchannel.com/news/2021-us-open-rory-mcilroy-thinks-green-reading-books-should-be-outlawed-greater-good-game There seems to be a combination of reasons behind the idea, rather than one. I’d maybe think the for-the-greater-good thoughts like Rory’s are more common than pace of play, but also a combination. I like the thoughts about the greater good of the game, and wouldn’t object to the books being outlawed. It puts more focus on reading greens and trusting what you see rather than consult a book. As Erik said, if they don’t putt better today than before the books, is there a reason to keep them?
    • I have 45°, 50° and 56°. Simple. As a short knocker I need the extra slots for the top of my bag.
    • Good greens, perfect weather for golf. Even then -1 gets a tie for 11th. If you add 10mph on to the breeze then par becomes a very good score. I watched about 2 hours early and an hour late on and the quality of golf today was great. 
    • Played my first round away from my home course yesterday and snuck into two birdies on holes 4 (par-3) and 10 (par-4). 🙂  Started composite stats now.
