There is that man card thing again. This is interesting.

Well, none of the pros do it (cover their irons or wedges), even though their caddies could do it for them during some of that standing around time.

I have covers on all of my clubs except my hybrids because they are old, beat up, didnt come with them, and i'm just not going there until i replace them.

I thought I would have trouble keeping them and avoiding losing them, but you just get in a natural groove of putting it in your back pocket then back on the club so it matches its buddies. It has definitely helped keep my clubs from getting marked up, and honestly my bag looks sick. I just got new wedges too, and after seeing the difference in spin from fresh grooves, I am glad I have something to protect them.

 

Clubs are expensive, so I think treating them well and protecting them is a wise decision.

I remember getting teased a bit by my dads golf partner Kevin about having head covers on my irons as a kid. I was thinking in my head, really ya JA!

 

Here's my take on why I am making headcovers for all of my irons, wedges, and utility clubs.

 

Disclaimer: I currently do not have iron covers, and I mostly ride in a cart. This year my goal is to walk 75% of the time.

 

First: It is an investment. You spend $$$ on these little pieces of steel.

 

Second: That sound of club faces clacking together down the fairway makes me cringe. There are grooves on those things!!!

 

Third: Nothing makes me more angry than a chip in the top of my putter, driver, etc.

 

I got that 712u last year and it is forged. Wow, it took a beating. So this year it will be rocking a lost sock till I get the head covers made.

 

I am looking to purchase the Cobra King LTD's very soon. That's a $1200 investment for me, pretty good chunk of cash considering my truck was only $3000. If they get beat by cart traffic I would be a little upset.

 

My current gamers are cast and they still take a beating. Even if my new set is cast I will be putting the head covers on them, as I plan to have them for a while.

 

Wedges... these things give the second most entertainment in the bag if you ask me. Nothing cooler than executing a wedge shot that stops, spins, and zips a cross the green. Why let those faces get beat up?

 

Putter is obvious to me. Cover is a must.

 

My 52° TM wedge has a massive dent in the face from one outing in a cart.

 

What do you all think?

 

Would you rock some head covers on your irons and wedges after reading this?

I have all my irons in neoprene covers. They are ragged now. They have been in the covers since I bought them(Nike Pro Combos) and they look really good for their age. Now if local courses will remove the ROCKS from sand traps, I'll be happy!

Advertisement for their brand. And they can afford to replace clubs... I hope.

 

Walking yeah, no covers for me. In a cart, for sure.

Adds to Slow play and not my cup of tea, just my 2 cents, if you like them rock them.

Slow players are slow regardless of head covers. It takes a couple of seconds to put on and take off covers. There are boat loads of reasons not to use the head covers slow play is not really one of them.

Have to disagree with you on this, on numerous occasions I've been stuck behind the guy who has to walk back to his cart, clean his clubs and put all his head covers back on the clubs he used on the hole, so yes to me it adds to slow play, and let me say again, this is just my 2 cents, agree with it or not, fine by me.

Question - being curious and not argumentative - to the guys who like the clank-clank-clank:

When you're hitting a shot .. tee, fairway, putt .. do you prefer quiet, or are you able to focus / tune out all background noise?

 

When I'm trying to hit, if there's​ a clank-clank-clank near me I get distracted too easily ...

 

When you are addressing your ball to hit a shot, why would you hear clank-clank-clank? Are your playing partners walking right near you when you are mid-swing? That would be a distraction and I'd ask them to please stand still if they are that close. Id hope they would already know that as that should be learned the first day a golfer sets foot on a golf course. Now, If it is someone walking down an adjacent fairway, then you do get distracted to easily.

 

 

There are certain sounds that I associate with the game of golf. Lawn mowers, birds, the "clack, clack, clack" rhythm of carrying your bag, and the sound of metal spikes on cement. The sound of metal spikes is now gone and I don't want to lose another audible reminder of the game.

As a kid, I used to love three sounds...

 

1-the clickety clack of my steel cleats when walking on concrete

 

2-the clackety click of my irons in the bag on my shoulder as I walked the course

 

3-the muffled sound of the golf ball dropping into the hole

Not a bad idea if you change iron sets often and you want max resale. I know I wouldn't pay what some people ask for, for clubs that have been beat to heck with chatter or wear on the face. I'm looking for deals!

I got a set because a coach told me to slow down my routine and it forced me to slow down. I don't feel bad it helps resale value.

 

Now that I got fit for all my clubs and I have a swing im happy with I don't use them anymore.

To each his/her own

I use them and normally get done in about 3.5- 4 hours. No one ever waits on me for being slow. I too am a bit OCD and like my clubs to look good for as long as possible. I can care less about what golf purist think when they see me with my covers. Unless they are paying for my clubs then their opinion does not matter to me.

I know a few people that lose their shirts when it comes to iron covers. I don't really care what others choose to do but my friends that do use them tend to misplace one twice a round and we end up wasting time looking for them. I have also seen clubs put away wet that rusted after a rainy day on the course. For those two reasons alone I won't ever use them but my number 1 reason for passing on covers is your clubs are beautiful and iron covers in any form are quite ugly.

I use headcovers on irons, primarily when I am traveling. Who know how much they throw out bags around when flying. Better to be safe than sorry! As for playing my covers stay on until I use the club, once I use the club the headcover comes off until the end of the round.

As of now, I only have covers on my woods, hybrids and putter, but I also don't have $500+ irons in my bag so they can afford to be dinged up until I'm able to afford a better set. Woods, hybrids and especially putter are a must for me, though

Hi all, 6 yrs since I've last posted. 😉

 

I used to buy and sell irons so frequently that I tried iron covers in order to preserve their condition as much as possible.

 

I was annoyed by the extra action. Sure I do it with driver and woods, sometimes putter. But adding seven more into the mix bothered me.

 

Bought a Bennington Quiet Organizer, problem solved.

 

Although my buying and selling has all but ended, I stuck with the QO bags. On my third one now and my 10 years played (I think) mixed set of Mizuno MX200s and MP-52s still look great.

 

On to Apex CF-16s this season, safe within the slots of the QO.

Bulldog - the covers came today and I like them! One small problem is that they are marked for right handed players (yes I'm a lefty). Not a big deal but if they were marked on both sides would have been great. Still at $20. They're a bargain and look much better than those twice the price at big box stores.
