It doesn't make any sense not to look after our clubs better. We pay a lot of money for them but then too many of us don't make sure that they're working to the best of their abilities by cleaning out the grooves.

Remember when you bought those shiny new wedges and they used to check up or even spin back a few feet after a particularly nice strike? Well, those days can be here again if you just try a bit harder with your post-shot routine. Look at all the tour pros – every shot is followed by a good scrub of the grooves. 

And how about your shoes – when was the last time they got a decent clean? 

Read on and tidy up your game, in every sense.
