An old man sits outside his small house wiping down a pitching wedge he used to chip in a 30 foot shot yesterday evening. The golf club cleaner he is using was not bought in a store or ordered through a catalog. It is unique because it is the only golf cleaning system the old man has ever used that not only both cleaned and protected his clubs at the same time, but also got in the many ‘nooks & crannies’ of his golf clubs.

With over fifty years of golfing experience, Rusty can tell you one or two golfing stories that will have you hanging on the edge of your seat. After the successful launch of his current company in 2007, Rusty’s Rags, which specializes in high end gun cleaning products, his newest invention, the patent pending Rusty’s Rag Golf Club Cleaner & Protectant™, has everyone in the small town of Douglasville, just outside of Atlanta, talking. With one last quick wipe of the sheepskin cloth Rusty puts down his golf club and begins talking.

“I always dreaded coming in from the course and having to clean my clubs after every round of golf,” says Rusty. “The mere thought of it made me not want to go golfing in the first place. Finally I found a solution to my problem.” After many years of using the old fashioned ‘soap & bucket’ technique, Rusty began developing and testing a new golf club cleaning product that took the stress and headache out of cleaning his clubs. “I always knew there had to be a better and easier way to both clean and protect my golf clubs at the same time and I finally found it,” says Rusty.

The Rusty’s Rag Golf Club Cleaner & Protectant™ is basically two cleaning cloths in one. The hand cut sheepskin cloth is impregnated with a special silicone formulated by Rusty for use on golf clubs. “It took me forever to find a way to keep the silicone on the sheepskin that I almost gave up,” laughs Rusty. “I finally found a way to make my silicone formula stick to the sheepskin.” Every Rusty’s Rag Golf Club Cleaner & Protectant™ also contains a free flannel cloth used to polish the clubs to a fine finish. Instructions are also included.

“If you want to lower your score and play better golf, you must have clean golf clubs,” says Rusty. “Even the smallest amount of dirt or grass on your clubs can change the direction of your ball flight. My product cleans and protects your clubs from dirt, grass, and harsh fertilizers on the golf course. It also protects your clubs from rust and keeps them looking factory new. Once my product is applied, it is easier to remove debris from your clubs.”

Many of Rusty’s friends and fellow golf buddies encouraged Rusty to share his invention with the rest of the community for their golf club cleaning and protecting needs and thus the Rusty’s Rags Golf Club Cleaner & Protectant™ was born. Now Rusty has his own website that tells about his new golf club cleaning cloth and people can buy the product straight from his site. Rusty use to cut each sheepskin cloth by hand but now has had to enlist outside help to keep up with production. “Never in my wildest dreams did I think these cloths would sell so well,” Rusty laughs.

The Rusty’s Rags Golf Club Cleaner & Protetant™ is sold through the companies website: and and fine pro shops throughout the United States. Rusty is always looking for new vendors to carry his product. Anyone interested can contact Latham Doxey in our media department.
