Review: Club Whizz
On paper it sounds great, but does it work? I’ve used it now on my push cart for about 6 rounds and I can say that it works well at getting the dirt and grime off the club very easily while walking down the fairways. It worked best on wet days when the clubs got rather dirty, but the dirt was soft and there was plenty of moisture on the club and brush. It struggled to get the grooves completely clean during drier conditions when the dirt was hard and crusted into the grooves right after the swing. It didn’t seem to have enough power by just holding the club against the brush as it spun down the fairway. Sometimes stubburn dirt needed extra help from a tee. But that can even happen with a hand brush. It kind of depends on how particular you are too. The grooves might be clean, but the club will not be spotless, the only way to get that completely clean look is to finish wiping it off with a towel.
The greatest challenge of using the Club Whizz is the fact that you are walking down the fairway trying to hold a club at just the right angle with just the right pressure against the bristles. It takes time learning just the right technique even for someone who is fairly coordinated. Initially there were many slips and slams into the hub, into the straps, even into the wheel itself. You’re not going to damage the club or wheel (at least my many experinces with this caused no damage) but it might be a tad frustrating. Let’s be honest, there are also those who struggle to multi-task, this will be way too difficult for them
While at times I struggled to use it while walking down the fairway, the Club Whizz’s greatest asset is that it can be removed for use on other items that need scrubbing as well as removal for transportation and storage. My Clicgear cart just barely fits in the back of my MINI Cooper. With the brush on, it didn’t fit, but with it removed it fit just like before. The straps and hub didn’t get in the way. You can also remove the brush to clean it and store it in a nice drawstring vented bag. I really appreciated this fact after geese had recently visited the course I played. I needed to scrub my clubs, my cart wheels, and my shoes after the round. It was really nice to be able to put the brush in the bag and wash it off when I got home.
In general the Club Whizz worked great at cleaning the grooves of my clubs while walking down the faiway. While it is not perfect, it certainly is the best push cart attached brush you can buy. If you want a quality brush for cleaning your cart, shoes and clubs, this is it. It is as simple as walking down the fairway to get clean grooves.
