Kenny Harms brought Kevin Na his golf clubs Thursday morning. 

He carried them during the day. 

He had given them a shower and tucked them in at night. 

On a video posted to Instagram on Wednesday night, ahead of this week’s World Golf Championships-FedEx St. Jude Championship, Harms, Na’s caddie, showed “how we on the PGA Tour clean our clubs.”

Harms takes a wet towel and cleans the head of an iron. He cleans out the grooves. He polishes it. 

Harms flips the iron over and also cleans the grip. 

“The most important thing is to make sure that the grip is nice and tacky for tomorrow,” Harms said. “So for all you players out there, you might want to do that everytime you play.”

Freshly showered. Time for bed. 

Harms said he gives Na’s clubs “special treatment.”

He walks over to the bed in the hotel room. There lie nine irons, three fairway metals, a driver and a putter. All on a pillow. All covered by a blanket. 

“I tuck them in bed so they get a good night sleep just like Kevin Na, and you’re ready to go low tomorrow,” Harms said.    

Last year, Na was given a 1973 Dodge Challenger for winning the Charles Schwab Challenge. He gave it to Harms. 

Na cares for his caddie. Harms cares for the clubs.

“This is why @kharms27gets paid the big💰(or car) how to clean your clubs 101. wait for the end!” Na wrote on Instagram.
