    I used to think golf was about posting the lowest number you can. Irrespective of whether you have irons covers, brushes, ball-scoops, a weird routine or unusual clothing.

    So if I understand you correctly, you have a 3 step process after you hit each club: 1) spray club head,2) scrub club head with brush and 3) dry clubhead with towel. WHEW!!



    You say it's only 15 seconds per club, but multiply that times 90 shots and you've just added another 25-30 mins to everyone's round. Then everyone else in your foursome starts doing the same and you've got a complete cluster F.



    No offense, but the guys in my group wouldn't stand for that, nor would most golfers.



    We have a guy in our group that started to use the little brush bucket at the side of the cart to clean his clubs after EVERY shot and then that morphed into a process of hit, scrub, dry etc after every shot. There is simply no need to clean a club after each and every shot and to that level.



    There's a reason processional caddies simply carry a towel. One side wet, one side dry. Looks professional and it works.




    it's possible he does it while others are playing their shots, which would add approximately 0 minutes to the overall round.

    I hold no grudge against people using a club brush. By personally, I just use a little spit and cursory rub with a towel. Seems quite clean to me after that.

    So is he using Taylor Made irons? He's wearing a Titleist cap.... Don't know how he gets away with any of that

    Duh. Yep, as he said he probably has plenty of time while the other wannabe "pros" are going through their pre-shot routine.



    Not to mention that he's not hitting 90 irons shots.

    So watching the replay, def playing TM irons.

    Can't think of any other instance where a player wears a Titleist hat but doesn't use their irons.

    At least he's not using a groove sharpener after every shot. I never saw a pro with iron covers, could be a trendsetter

    Aran was using a pair of Mac Wet gloves. They are light years ahead of any other rain gloves in performance and no more than £25 a pair. An awesome product. Unlike the iron covers.

    Now true story. I usually don't clean my sand and lob wedge grooves. Helps control spin . Sometimes so caked I have to wet it first to loosen the dirt up. Lol.

    Happens quite a bit for non mainstream guys especially on smaller tours like Asian Tour. Probably a hat/ball/glove deal with titleist.

    Same, but you don't want anything lumpy on the club face, of course. I "squeegee" the dirt off the face and into the grooves with the toe of my shoe. For shots that require spin, they get the wet towel to clean the grooves. The cheaper the towel, the better...scratchey terrycloth works best, like the back side of my Tour Issue JaniKing towel ;-).

    Most definitely.



    One of those “you know you’re in for a long day” sorts of things when you see a guy with one. Played with a guy a few wks ago who cleaned his irons with that little wire brush after EVERY shot.



    Then proceeded to shoot about 105🤪




    Lol, that is news to me. But, if you don't have one, how do you clean your irons/wedges during a round?



    Would seem more difficult to dig dirt out of the grooves with a tee that doesn't fit wouldn't it?



    I admittedly use one. Always have. Everyone I know does. This is the first I've heard it mentioned in the same e breath as a ball retriever. Seems too convenient to get the sand, dirt, and grass out of the grooves with a couple swipes.




    I use one too! I play 18 in 3 hrs and hate slow play

    I didn't realize this was a big deal until a few months ago when my new instructor was poking fun at one of the new kids. This guy played on tour and just started laughing. Funny thing is, this is the best kid in our group.

    Well, I hope that kid leaves your instructor. Sounds like a tool player, not a tour player.
