PostSubject: Use of club head cover during a round of golf   Tue Aug 14, 2012 9:33 am

Dear All

Just posting here to get some advise.

I have played some rounds of golf with strangers (I'm a newbie) and I noticed that some players will cover their driver with the club head cover after they tee off. And they will do this at every hole ie cover the head of the driver with the cover!

This is in contrast to me - I just leave the club head cover off for the whole 18 holes.

Which is the right thing to do? Is it necessary?
Do I need to do this with any other club eg putter?

Thanks so much for all advise.

No right or wrong mate - personal preference. I cover up my clubs after every shot for the following reasons:

1. I have seen the buggy strap give way when the buggy is in motion, and the resulting fall of the golf bag on the cart path will leave some very nasty scratches etc on your woods etc

2. When taking irons out of the bag, one will use an upward pulling motion, and if your driver head is in the way, "bang" small scratch / ding on the top of the driver head.

+1. I do it for the same reasons. To add, if you are using forged irons, it's also good to cover to protect them too.

I usually keep the covers except for my irons. It's always good to protect your putter.

I do the same too but usually is the caddy do all the works when in Indonesia albino Sorry :-)

Btw, does forged irons much easy to get scratch or ding compare to cast irons ?

All my clubs are now covered. I remove the cover when I use them and re-cover them when I slot them back into the bag. I find that they last longer this way and have better resale value Smile

Actually covering back is good practice....especially for putter and driver.

Depends, really. I usually keep headcovers on the irons and hybrids, but not on my driver or putter.

Why? Cos the putter headcover is bulkier and losing it during a round would really suck. On the other hand, keeping headcovers on my irons when they are not in play has a dual purpose - to prevent the irons from knocking into the driver shaft and into the putter head, and it also keeps my irons fairly clean and I can immediately see if/when i don't have all my irons if I happen to have a spare head cover at the end of the round

O/T abit.. actually another way to mitigate all the rattlings and banging of clubs whilst zooming over the fairways is to invest in a bag ( abit more ex than regular ones) like below where the shafts are gripped tight into slots and this prevents clubs from knocking against one another....

I always cover back the irons after each shot, and I always try to wipe clean the clubs a bit with cloth before covering. Putter and Driver I leave the cover off more for convenience sake. Putter coz every hole will use.. Driver coz the cover is damn hard to cover back... Prob should go get those animal headcover for driver which is easier to cover back.

Problem is my flightmates all take off all their club covers for the whole round.. and they damn kan chiong.. hit and drive off type.. I feel damn rushed to put back my covers before chasing them to next shot..

Except for my Driver, the rest of my clubs I always put back the covers after my shot. Especially my putter as I hate to see dinks on it.

I hate those socks type Driver covers. Always have difficulty putting back the Driver. You can get those magnetic type which is easy to take out and cover back.

As for your flight mates being kan chiong, you should not feel rushed as ultimately they have to wait for you to tee off at the next tee box. Wink

Yup.. Hate the original sock type driver cover that comes with most drivers nowadays. And they have to use the velvet type of material, which turns to black powder after some time. Hard to take out and make hand turn black..

Prob will look for the animal headcovers that are easy to take out. But all seem so big.. like very hao lian. tongue Attracting attention to me then when I top my drive 20m, damn paiseh Embarassed (thats why i avoid white drivers too)

best way to keep your clubs covered is to be the passenger of the buggy so u can slowly cover up the clubs after ur shot while sitting in the buggy and put them into your bag when the buggy next stops Very Happy
