    I’ve recently bought a new set of clubs and whilst the irons are easy to clean, the usual spit and polish isn’t working on my TS2 and the marks from the painted wooden tees are especially hard to get off. I’m thinking of using some washing up liquid, but before I do, does anyone have any experience? Thanks!

    Wet towel and mild dish soap. I don't and wouldn't use any brushes.

    I have a Titleist Staff Towel that is wet on one end when I play. I use that to wipe/clean each clubhead after hitting a shot. I don't use any wire/metal brushes on my sticks. I also use a bugle tee for my driver and natural wood tees for other clubs. I don't like colored tees unless it's plastic as the paint marks the clubhead as you mentioned.

    The secret (don't tell anyone) is a rub-on paste type car cleaner/wax. I use it on my driver, fairway, & hybrid and they look like new.

    Water and a soft towel. I usually rub the face hard to get the marks off. I'm not sure about using a brush if that would cause any slight damage to the club face. Dawn might be a solution to this issue.
  6. for under 10 bucks "the groove tube" works well for irons, no brushes touch woods or driver ever (wet players towel)

    Warm soapy water, groove cleaner and some micro fibre towels.
    If I have plenty of time on my hand, the ts2 driver, ts2 3 wood and 818h2 get treated to some polish and wax

    Other than wiping my clubs with a towel immediately after every shot, I have an old toothbrush by the kitchen sink. I clean my clubs with dish washing liquid and that toothbrush after every round. I clean the grips and shafts with a damp cloth and dry everything off. Admittedly, I'm pretty anal about taking care of my clubs.

    I'd love to confirm this with your wife. In addition to my clubs I have to do the dishes because I was out all day playing golf

    On a more serious note don't soak/submerse any club, especially AP/T-x irons. Moisture can seep in and cause havoc including rusting on the inside.
  11. I am not super picky about most things golf-related but I do keep my clubs clean, especially the grips (it's amazing how dirty some people I've played golf with let their grips get). Wet microfiber towel just about always gets the dirt off right after I hit a shot. Probably wouldn't work as well on that nasty orange clay soil you see in some areas but our course is built on good sandy soil and the little bit of black dirt that gets in the grooves wipes right off.

    I hear you about the white tee paint rub marks. I just don't use white painted tees, ever. Those marks are the dickens to get off without using strong chemicals (which I'd rather not mess with). And they look horrible on a black or gray clubhead.

    I use Bar Keepers Friend on my irons abdMeguiar's Ultimate compound and polish on the woods. Useepoch S3 tees and you won't have the problem. One tee last 3 to 4 rounds.

    I use a soft bristle brush with Dawn dish washing liquid. Never, ever had a problem using brushes on metal woods.
    I use the wood colored tees, they don't leave marks on my clubs

    Warm soapy water (fairy liquid) and an old tooth brush and really dry them properly get into the cavity with cotton buds. Also polish and wax the tops of the Woods and hybrid now and again.

    I use red painted wood tees but that works well to show me where I am striking the ball. Prefer a mark to show swing path on driver especially. Also on the irons.

    Usually wipe off with a damp towel on course followed by a dry towel. After a round or range session I use a soft finger nail brush to clean out dirt with water and a little windex. Dry off with a clean dry towel.

    Quick trick. Cleaning the mark's off driver after a tee shot: use grass. Grab a small hand full from rough and wipe on tee mark. Moisture in grass and chloryphyl in grass seems to be pretty effectively to clean off marks.

    As Tosh stated above, I occasionally use a car wax to clean and re-polish my woods.

    Warm water with a wet towel & dish soap. After I clean them I then dry them with a different towel.
    I use a plastic brush for the grooves on my irons. I never use metal anything on any of my clubs including the grooves.

    warm water with dish soap and a plastic brush, shoe brush and toothbrush. I'd stay away from these stainless steel and brass brushes. They can scratch the finish and let the clubs rust.

    I clean mine with a bin full of water and a brush that has the stiff nylon bristles. I had never thought of waxing the woods and hybrids, but they get fairly clean in the water and the dried with a towel.

    I use liquid soap and a soft bristle brush. I just lightly use the brush on the driver. Usually comes right off but I do clean my clubs after each round of golf I play.

    the Titleist Staff Towel is really good compared to other golf towels I have hard. the texture of the towel is rough enough to polish out some stubborn scuffs.

    On my black vokey wedges I learned quickly not to use a metal brush if I wanted to keep them looking black. Plastic brushes work but take longer to get out the dirt.
  22. Up until last week, I'd only clean the sticks when the service was offered at the cart return. I always avoided club brushes because I didn't want to look like a hack with a brush dangling from my bag. Rode with my buddy who had a brush and I've never had an easier time cleaning up my grooves before a shot.

    Needless to say, #brushmafia.
