Hi All, just checking anyone use Vaseline Petroleum Jelly on your golf club to prevent corrosion?

I have been using Singer Oil after every round after washing my club and so far it keep rust away, but i saw ppl using Vaseline on Ice Skating blade and it works wonder and the cost is cheap too.

Will Vaseline affect the painted surface (eg. Driver Crown) or any paint on the club?

Hope to hear some advised from GRians here, thanks in advance.

As long as you keep your bag dry, don't see any reason for Vaseline nor Singer oil (so far have not encounter an rust issue).......

In case you are unaware, rust don't start from outside. If it does, most likely it is because you did not clean and dry the shaft after a game in the rain of after cleaning the club heads in the washer provided in some buggies. Water will also likely penetrate the hosel if the glue is not properly applied and might also find its way in from the back of the shaft if the butt is not properly sealed. If it forms on the outside, it is still not too late to do damage control. Polishing it off might help prevent the rust formation. the shafts are not made of stainless steel and is only chrome plated (if not mistaken). The next option would be to use graphite shafts. This will eliminate the worries of rust formation. If not, regular maintenance is required for steel shafts.

While you are at it, might as well apply to the driver face to reduce spin.....

Thanks for the reply, but still have doubt will Petroleum Jelly affect the paint work on the club?

Another effective way to keep your clubs nice and lightly oiled is to buy a silicon oil infused cleaning cloth. It does work well but remember that the clubs have to be dry when applying or it's a waste of time.

You can buy this cloth at two locations along Beach road. Both are gun shops.  One is
 near Arab street and the other is located in Golden Mile right next to the Thai supermarket on the 1st floor.

I've used the oil infused cloths on my hunting rifles for a long time and it does a decent job.

I'm not sure if any of the shops above the Beach road hawker centre selling army shops sell this.

Alternatively have a clean rag and buy a can of silicon oil and apply. Keep the rag in a zip lock bag and over time that rag will also be oil infused. Laughing Laughing Laughing
