Help needed!! After a few rounds with the Select Newport 2 I got a couple months back, I spotted some grass/sand in between the weights and the sockets. I like to take really good care of my equipment so this has been bothering me. I was wondering if other fellow TT members have experienced the same problem and figured out a way to properly clean your putter without removing the weights? I would imagine dipping the head in water may help to get most of the sand out, but don't want anything to rust as a consequence... would really appreciate any feedback, thanks!

I have a few Scotty's and I like you tend to want to take care of them. I would suggest using compressed air (either from an air compressor or a can that you would get to clean off your keyboard) and spray that in the weight area and sockets. I don't think dipping the head in water would cause too much rust if any.
I would start there and if not, toothbrush with water will get some of the sand out.
Hope this helps, here is to you and some good golf in 2015! #teamtitleist

I have a small fiber brush (typewriter brush) that works really well at getting the grit out from around the weights without having to remove them. It's a must after most rounds in the fall when courses here top dress their greens.

Take out the weights. Wash/rinse thoroughly. Dry. Replace.
Some water and rag or toothbrush should do the trick. Like someone else said, you're overthinking it. Don't worry about it, it won't rust. These clubs are designed to be played outside in all types of weather. Think about the amount of salt air that hits if you were playing a course near the coast. A simple wash won't harm a thing.

All of these so far are very good suggestions, don't be too worried about rust, but if you are just make sure to dry it really well and even can take a cloth with some baby oil to it afterward.
