Wont la bro. Its part of taking care of ur irons. If not the dirt get stuck in e groove too long will b difficult to wash away.

For me, I will wash after each game, but only for those that have dirt stuck in e groove. Hope this helps..

never heard or try this b4. You not scare your clubs face as smooth as baby's bottom?


joke aside.

on course make sure to use the club washer on the buggy after taking divot or bunker + a cloth to clean clean a bit..

usually use a hard/firm toothbrush and clean dry cloth to clean after game.
then use a very light slightly singer oiled cloth to wipe wipe a bit.

I always clean the club face with a damp cloth after every shot. At times I will use a tee to dig the stubborn dirt from the grooves. Using baby lotion is a bit too caring, in my opinion. Just clean the club face with a used tooth brush in a basin or under small running water should suffice. Smile

And to add on, yes I also clean my clubs before and after each shot. Smile

I usually carry 2pc of cloth. 1 "face towel" for cleaning ball when on greens,
and another "hand towel" for other clubs' face; especially driver. Because I
personally hate seeing those ball marks on my SuperTri Very Happy

I like to use the club cleaner by the side of the buggy. Saves me so much trouble. Getting lazy to clean after every session in the range like I used to.

I clean after every shot during a round so that I don't have to clean before every shot.

top the ball.. the ball can still roll a good 50-100m depending on your swing speed.
ground the club.. depending on how far behind the ball u ground.. the ball will at most move 5m??.. hahahahhaha. Sometimes I'll be happy if i top the ball. Ground the ball.. not only the ball doesn't travel.. I'll end up having sore ribs.. HAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHA

Bunker shot should be no problem for you then.

I still tend to top my short bunker shot if I'm not careful - DARN IT!

By right bunker shots should be a breeze.. but the problem with me is that I always hold back on my shots after i've hit the ball or the ground. I don release my swing all the way to the finishing. Once i get the feedback from my club that i've hit the impact point, i always hold back.
Any tips on drills to release the swing?

I used petroleum jelly after I clean my clubs with water & liquid soap.

They say using a bar soap are not good because it can scratch our eyeglass glasses so I dont like it to scratch my irons & other clubs.
Liquid soap seems to be better.

And after drying them up. Petroleum Jelly is another alternative to make it shine & clean

I previously use WD 40 oil but it has a smell to it.

Now I use silicone spray to clean and rust preventives for the head and steel shaft :-

http://www.permatex.com/products/Automotive/lubricants/multipurpose_lubricants/auto_Permatex_Silicone_Spray_Lubricant.htm

Silicone Spray does not attract dust and dirt easily and it act a a rust preventive layer on the shaft; smell is not strong as well.

I also use it to spray metal part on the bag to prevent rust as well.

Sometimes, I use baby oil to clean as it smell nice. Razz

Both items works for me so no harm trying.

Would it be baby lotion or baby oil?

Lotion sounds like the creamy type.
