My Member Review

When this product was posted for review, I jumped on it.  Golf in Western WA, in winter, is very wet.  On some courses when you walk into the fairway, you won't find a spot that isn't standing water.  So, it's important to have good rain gear, good rain gloves, and a good towel.  Up until 2015, I used a big bath towel.  The problems with regular towels is they dry slowly when soaked, can leave behind lint on clubs, and it pushes dirt around more than it picks up. Microfiber towels soak up water and debris, it will dry faster, and not leave lint behind.  In 2015, I got the Club Glove Microfiber with pocket towel.  Then I got this Players Towel about a month ago.

The dye is sublimated, and there is the slit in the middle to go over clubs or alignment sticks.

I practice or play 2-3 times a week, so the towel got in a lot of work.  I wish I had taken a picture of how dirty I got it.  But, after one wash and dry, I got this back.

Not bad considering it's a white towel.

As far as this time of year where it's mostly about keeping things dry, having a microfiber is imperative.  I played in a downpour with this towel and it held up better than expected.  It was still soaking up some water at the end but it wasn't really making the clubs or cart seats dry, it was more of a damp surface.  A bath towel would've been useless half way through the round.  On the opposite end of the spectrum, I played in an event a year and a half ago where it was 99 degrees and a super dry wind in the desert for a tournament.  Trying to keep the tail end of my towel (the Club Glove microfiber) wet/damp was tough.  If you're looking to keep something damp during the round, I'd stick with the bath towel.  But, for all other uses of a towel, going microfiber would be better.

There are different grades of microfiber towels.  I wanted to see if I can tell the difference in performance between the Club Glove and Players Towel.  They are probably the two more popular brands.  As for everyday play, from light rains to sunny, the difference between the two is negligible.  In that downpour I played in, I had my Club Glove pocket towel, the Frogger towel, and the Players Towel.  I would say the Players Towel performed the best (soaking in water/staying as dry as possible).

If you do decide to get a microfiber towel, get a premium one.  Your typical cleaning microfibers are not very good at soaking up water or really anything golf related.  The Players Towel is a bit more expensive but it is the way to go because it did perform better than the others.

    • 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.
