After buying a new golf club from the Taylormade golf shop, you will surely want to maintain it. And the best way to maintain it is to clean it regularly. Since you might be relatively new to playing golf, you might want to educate yourself with this article about the proper way to cleaning a golf club.
What Will You Use as a Cleaning Agent
You will not need to buy some expensive cleaning chemicals to get your club sparkling clean. All you need is a pail of warm water and a few drops of liquid dish soap. However, you can buy golf club cleaning kits from the Taylormade golf shop if you are unconfident about cleaning your clubs with regular household items.
By the way, make sure that you do not use boiling hot water since it might damage and loosen up the ferrule of your golf club. If that happens, your club’s head will become unstable and it will affect the trajectory of your shots.
Anyway, get a big bucket if you are going to clean multiple clubs that you bought from the Taylormade golf shop. If you do not have a bucket that can contain all the clubs that you have, using your kitchen sink is a good alternative. Mix the warm water and liquid dish soap in it. Make sure the soap will create a thick foam of suds.
By the way, do not put too much water on it. The level of the water in the bucket should be enough to cover the head of the clubs only. Remember that you do not want to get the ferrules to become wet too much even if you are just going to use warm water. Also, never wet or submerge any wooden part of your club in water. For those wooden parts, wiping them with a damp towel is enough.
Loosening up the Dirt and Stains
When the bucket is already prepared, just dip the golf clubs on it. Leave it for a few minutes (five minutes should be long enough). However, if you are going to clean clubs with too much dirt on them, you might want to leave them for ten minutes.
Getting and Choosing the Right Brush
After that, it is time to remove the clubs from the bucket. By that time, the dirt, chemicals, and oil on the clubs should have loosen up. Get a brush with thick bristles. In case you do not have one, an old toothbrush will do. However, never try using a steel wire brush to clean your clubs even if the dirt on the clubs is too stubborn to remove. Using something like that can permanently damage a club’s face and its grooves, which can certainly degrade the performance of your club.
How Will You Brush and Clean Your Golf Club
Use the brush you have to scrub the dirt away from the club heads. Do not scrub too hard. You should start scrubbing the faces of the club heads first. Then you should clean the back of the club heads.
Once you are done with that part, start scrubbing the top and bottom parts. The next step is cleaning the clubface’s grooves. With this task, a toothbrush is perfect, but in case the grooves are too deep and the dirt inside them are too difficult to remove using the brush, you can use a regular toothpick to pick those dirt out.
Finish the Job by Letting the Clubs Dry
It is now time to wash away the soapsuds that came in contact with your club from the Taylormade golf shop. Get a pail cool water, and paddle the club heads on it gently and slowly. After that, you should dry your clubs. You can just simply use a regular towel or clean rug for this step. Make sure that the clubs are completely dry to prevent moisture from damaging them. Also, never put them back in your golf back unless they are completely dry. You might want to expose it a bit outside the bag to make sure.
