Bettinardi UPatch Headcover REVIEW

Bettinardi UPatch Headcovers

In honor of John's great Bettinardi piece on the blog today, I thought that I'd share with you the new Bettinardi UPatch headcover that I recently acquired. 

 

You probably remember the UPatch headcover when it debuted at a part of the Bettinardi BB1 Armageddon Limited Edition putter. For many, that cover was actually the talking point of the release. The putter was pretty darn unique, but that velcro-patched headcover was something that we had not seen before.

 

Here is the headcover from that putter to refresh your memory.

Patches for the Masses

It would seem that Bettinardi realized that they were on to something with the UPatch headcover, deciding to move it into production on its own. As of about about a week or so ago, UPatch headcovers, and a myriad of patches, are available for sale on the Bettinardi site.

The UPatch headcovers come in three colors: black, white, and grey. Additionally, you get to pick your first three patches from their patch pool of forty-one patches. If you can't decide on just three, more can be purchased separately here.

With these UPatch headcovers, you can create a ton of different designs, and change the design at will as these all attach by Velcro. No longer is your creativity limited. Go nuts!

I'm not sure if the development of the adjustable headcover is on par with the invention of the adjustable driver, but I love it. When it comes to golf stuff, I fiddle. I like to tweak settings on clubs, which bag I'm using, and even the color of tees. It's pretty ridiculous, but it adds to my overall golf enjoyment.

 

I have a ton of headcovers for my putters, and I tend to swap them around to fit my mood, or even national holidays. Now I can just swap patches. $75 for a new putter cover will seem expensive to some, but I know that I have paid more for a headcover, and I have headcovers (plural) in the garage. Combining all of those purchases, $75 is a bargain.

 

Damn You eBay!

Where the madness becomes Lovecraftian is when you look at the number of non-Bettinardi patches that are available on eBay. Just do a search for "Morale Patch", and you will quickly see that your options are infinite for patch selection. I have spent hours searching for cool patches. So many cool designs.

 

Here are a couple that made it in the cart on the first go around.

There are just so many options and themes that you can go with. Want to make a Star Wars cover. There are 1500 patches to choose from. Want to go all Hello Kitty, including her stormtrooper costume? No sweat. There are so so many options.

 

I know that some of you won't get what makes me so excited about this, and that's fine. You may not even use a headcover on your putter, and as long as I'm not buying it from you after you are done with it, that's cool. Drag it along the concrete, bro.

Some of you though will be giddy with the aesthetic opportunities that UPatch delivers. You have already come up with patch themes, and can't wait to see if you can find the right patches. I'm thinking Nightmare Before Christmas for this Fall.

 

Get to Patching, You!

Anyway, I'm interested to know what you think about these and what designs you would do using the Bettinardi patches and others that you find online.

If they made this for a mallet, I'd buy it in a heartbeat.

I bet they are coming. Shoot them a tweet requesting a mallet version. Never know, if enough people want the mallet...

Great review as always Dave!

Thanks for including the "aftermarket" patches.

I was mulling purchasing one- and think there might be one in my future now.
