    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.




    well, you could tell he was just joking and the "kid" is like 27

    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��




    I have a brush, clean my irons after every shot, takes less time than most people whine over their poorly struck shots....I break 80 pretty much all the time, must be cuz my grooves are clean.




    I think the reason you are not breaking 70 is due to excessive club cleaning. All that wasted energy😂

    I'm not taking up for the guy, but he is in his 60s now. Never seen him hit a ball though, so you may be right.

    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.




    This. If a guy keeps up, he can have as many steps to his club-cleaning routine as he wants. The slow players I've been forced to observe generally aren't quickly and purposefully cleaning clubs, they're simply not doing anything quickly or purposefully.

    I have a vouble of brushes at home and clean my cluds the night before a tournament or even an event im looking for. On the course i just use a wet towel. Ive played tournament golf pretty much my entire life and dont think the brushes are a bug deal even if they are attatched to the bag and the player uses it after ever shot! Zach Johnson's caddy uses one as well as a few others! Not a fan of the iron covers! The ones pictured even appear to be the made in China covers!!!! Never seen them on TM site lol. If it makes u happy and you like it... Go for it!

    I'm digging this cat. Maybe he does it to get the undeniable trash talk from other players and just lets his clubs talk. "Yo covers you know you can walk into that trailer and get anything you want right?" Baz'ing stuffed to a foot.

    To each their own...



    Baseball players have weird superstitions, what if he feels like if he takes them off it will hurt his game.



    I do use headcovers on my irons (mainly for resale value) and I get ridiculed but they dig deep into their pockets at the end of the round.

    Yes. I play w one of the slowest guys at our club (good friend, what can I say) and EVERYTHING he does he does slow...always last to the tee, then at the first tee marks each of his 3 balls for the round and takes about a minute per ball, and on and on like that throughout the round. Funny part is he even takes about a full hour to eat his lunch. Everyone done within 15-20 mins but not this guy!!

    Bryson Dechambeau has won quite a few tournaments lately. Saw him call for the brush from his caddie and clean his own iron before a shot.



    Of course the announcers gave him the thumbs down like most of the responses on this thread. Always use a brush, wire and soft on the other side. I like clean clubs.



    I also have always used iron covers. Can’t stand clanking iron sounds, it’s like nails on chalkboard to me. Also, love new looking irons and I usually only keep for year so better resale value.



    I draw the line at ball retrievers, first they are ugly, second, rarely need them, third if I do hit it in the water it can stay there.



    But if your going to use iron covers use nice ones, these are hideous.

    I don't see what the big deal is. I'm sure this guy could give a rat's a__ as to what some joe nobody thinks. He'd still smoke any of us on the golf course.

    I remember some of the negative comments when Bubba started with pink, reminded me of the kids in middle school that talked trash about the kid that didn't fit in.

    Like stated above, could care less of what anyone thinks about my bag and what's in it or on it, I use the brush and head covers, I am too old to give "ANY" attention to what people think is cool or not, I do "however" think that the ball retriever may be overkill...just my .02, just enjoy your time on the course and have fun, play "your" game.

    To me they look like eBay Chinese knockoff iron covers.



    I’m left handed, it’s so hard to find clubs I like. I have a set of MP53’s that I love and I use iron covers so they will last as long as possible. If I was a tour player or even right handed I prob wouldn’t use them. Pretty hilarious a tour player is using them.



    Despite how ugly that bag looks it’s still looks better than his swing. But he clearly can make it work so good luck to him.

    Love my iron covers, but they’re only used for travel to and from the course. I walk 99% of my rounds, so damaging clatter is minimized and I find the slight rattle that goes on while walking somewhat musical. No brush, and I wipe a club with a damp towel that I carry with me and add water from my water bottle as needed. No need to clean the grooves until after the round is over and the clubs are ready to go back in the headcovers clean and ready for the next round. I’ve never owned a ball retriever and won’t.

    I played with a club pro at one course for a couple of years, and he never cleaned his irons, nor his grooves. They were slick (MP19’s) and he still spun the ball like mad.

    You guys are making fun of a guy who plays for his living. I think that pretty well says it all.

    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.

    Thank You-- I would like to to shoot -17 and win a European Tour event.

    Always with the two gloves. Started when he was young, tried to play with only one, couldn't do it, always wore two since.
