So I finally did it... I bought a new driver that might push ol' faithful out of the bag. But alas it came with out a Head cover.

It got me thinking, what head cover should I get?

Maybe get the fiancé to crochet one, get a funky one (batman, Sasquatch, a dog) or just buy a R1 cover?

 

Just wondering what people's thoughts are maybe share unique driver covers they have/had!

Well I've got both a Yoda, and a Chewbucca head cover that my girlfriend got me as gifts and I love them. They are in my WITB if your interested in having a look. I love it because its unusual and a bit comical which can help and I can even go as far to say it has helped me calm down and unwind during frustrating times on the course lol.

 

Being a mainly personnel choice I would suggest having a look at seeing whats out there and if anything catches your eye. With most not being very expensive it doesnt hurt much to get a couple :)

Ive got a Daphne's dragon headcover.  In Japanese mythology, dragons were believed to scare away bad spirits and I figure if they can scare the bad spirits out of my golf game, that wouldnt be a bad thing.

I went with a knitted pom pom driver cover this year from some company, dunno which one.   Colors to match the bag, nothing fancy.  It's MUCH easier and quicker to get on and off and I like the fact that it's not a walking billboard for some driver that will quickly be perceived as obsolete.   I'm thinking about swapping the fwoods too.


bag - SunMountain Synch with Ogio Synergy X4 cart
driver - :callaway-small: Optiforce 440, Paderson Kevlar Green stiff 46.5"
fwoods - :taylormade-small: Jetspeed, 3HL regular

wedges - :edilon-small: Scor 40, 45, 50, 54, 58

ball - :titelist-small: ProV1x

I have an octopus one from Daphne that I love, and a ManU Fred the Red that sees play time.

This one though is by far my favorite and the most badass. Bestgrips FTW

It works as the driver is the Punisher. I'm usually getting punished for using it, but sometimes it's the course that takes the beating.

Red Devils are my team. High hopes for this season (every season?). Thanks for the offer for gear, but I am hoping to get to Old Trafford myself someday. That's when I'll finally buy my scarf :)

Here's Fred

I have a Daphne's Fox head cover.

 

I asked my Daughters to pick me out whichever one they thought best fit me a few years ago and that's what they came back with.

 

I was flattered and told them that I thought I was average looking at best, and my oldest daughter laughed and said, "No no, dad, we got it because you are sneaky and you bark at us all the time."
 

I have tried to order something to replace it but can't really get rid of it.

Thanks.  Bethpage is in my back yard and is one heck of a great place.  Black gets all the glory, but Red and Blue are great courses in their own right.

Have a ton of back-ups in all categories, but there are always 14 clubs in the bag that differ depending on the course and set-up. Bomb and gouge. Yes, I'm a club gigolo.
