what is your opinion of animal headcovers?

49 posts in this topic

My Christmas gift wishlist is a little short and my wife suggested an animal driver headcover. I've always liked them, but if I have one, would that make me look like a total d-bag? I like this yellow lab (because it looks like my dog) and this polar bear (because I kinda like polar bears and polar bears = ferocious and ice cold, which is what I wish my golf game was like). If it makes a difference, I normally shoot mid 90s (in case it's one of those things where it's okay if you're good, but not okay if you're not very good).

I dont see why it would, the only cover that makes you look like a D-bag is the one you dont like.

Golf is just a game, do what makes you happy out there.

Having a little reminder of your best friend out there is pretty awesome, go for it.

I personally don't like those animal covers. But you shouldn't worry about what other people think about it or you. As long as they are not majorly offensive or something like that, just buy and use what you like ! It's your hobby, you life, your enjoyment ! Go for it !

I am not a fan of animal covers...but the bear is kind of cool. In the end you will find that no one really cares and if they do they are the dbag.

They remind me of early 1990's clothing styles (I'd say "fashion", but I've never been fashionable). Too much pointless fabric - which is totally fine for other people.

Headcovers are just one of those things where you use what you like. I really don't have an opinion one way or another about animal headcovers, just use what you like and screw those who may take issue with them. I have NY Jets headcovers and they don't always go over well here in Dolphin country.

I have 2 dogs. One Golden mix and one shepherd mix. I got one that resembles the golden about a year ago. Then I just got one that looks like a shepherd not too long ago. I just got a 3 wood so I can now use the Shepherd cover. I think that animal headcovers is no different than anything else for a head cover. Just personal preference.

Plus I enjoy having the pet reminders out there with me while I'm golfing.

Don't worry about what others 'might think', if you like them, then get them. Then, just kill them on the golf course. I have 2 in my bag, a Disney 'Tigger' (because he's one of a kind) and a Garfield that my brother got for me on a trip. I used to have a really cool wart-hog instead of the Garfield, but he fell off some where. Here's a tip...I've since added a 'jacket-type snap closure' to them so I can snap them around the shaft and they won't work themselves off when walking.

Hhaving an a goofy headcover in your bag doesn't make you look like a d-----bag. Asking us about it makes you look like a wimp. In other words grow a pair. No offense intended.

I see animal head covers like tattoos....if you are going to worry about what people are going to think / say. Don't bother getting them; it obviously doesn't mean that much to you.

Nothing to think about here man. Buy what ever the hell you want. Period.

Alternatively, if you decide on a full set of knit headcovers, read my older thread below. Ju Ju makes very high quality headcovers and will use any colors you want to match your bag or what ever. Super cool lady too. Affordable and fast shipping (unlike most all others).... http://thesandtrap.com/forum/threads...+ju+headcovers -Dan

    • The BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth.
      I'm enjoying this, but it could really do with a bit more pulling power. Just a shame not to see a few of the top European Tour players like Sergio or Rory not play it.
    • My Swing (b101)
      It's just feeling a little bit more natural than it used to and I'm not stepping on the course with 5 or more swing thoughts, which is nice! I don't think it'll take much work getting back to making progress and I'm definitely seeing that some of the changes I've made have stuck - ball flight is really high compared to what I'm used to and the ball turns right to left about 50% of the time and stays straight for 30%. It's the 20% of rubbish, either duck hooks or generally wayward tee shots that I want to clear up, which is going to be this morning's target on the range. I didn't end up hitting the range yesterday - a mate texted to ask to play a round, so I went for that. What was obvious is that the little 9 hole course, where I don't need anything above a 4 iron, has been great for my iron play, but that the 3 wood, driver and course management need a bit of a refresher course. Shot an 86 with a ridiculous 7 penalty strokes (4 on one tough par 3), which says it all really as I don't normally take any! It is a tight track though and there is OB all over the place, but no excuse for the few 'head off' moments which prevented me scoring well. It was match play as well so I guess that's part of it... In short summary: Driving/3 wood - pretty poor and I'm just not comfortable over the ball with those clubs. On a longer course, I'd have struggled. Long irons - good, bar that atrocity of a par 3, where I think I'll just aim way left next time and take the safe miss. Both of those were actually really nice strikes, but went dead straight rather than drawing like I had expected. Still, my fault entirely for aiming towards the trouble  Mid-short irons - mostly pretty good actually. Put 6/14 approaches from outside 100 yards to (3/4 from within 100) inside 15 yards and bar two long bunker shots, the rest were manageable. Putting - really pleased again; I probably only made one that I wouldn't have expected (birdie on 13), but there's a lot of break on the greens and I thought it was pretty decent for a first time out in a while. http://www.gamegolf.com/player/benpage101/round/930037 Overall, pretty close to where I'd want it to be, but a better decision on 6, some better drives and a bit more luck on odd holes (like 16) and it'd have been a great round. I'd take that for the first time in ages. Should be able to post some video this afternoon.
    • What would a PGA Tour player shoot at your home course?
      And also, "speculation" is what the thread is all about! Sure, I'm placing the Tour guys on a pedestal but they DESERVE it. Yes "Golf is Hard", but those guys are GOOD. Low 60s are very much a possibility in any tournament they tee it up in, let alone on a public course that was designed with the average golfer in mind. Let's give credit where credit is due! If all the players from 75-125 on the money list decided to go out and play a new course (of "moderate difficulty" for amateurs) every week for the next 2 months, course records would be getting smashed all over the place. They might shoot the odd 70 or 72, but you darn well bet there would be a lot of 63's and 64's in there too. Regardless of poor course conditions, lack of course knowledge or anything like that, they are gonna make birdies in droves and they are going to go low!
    • The this math does not compute thread
      I was at a garage sale with my son who was like 10 years old at the time. The seller had a box full of cheap toys with a handwritten sign on the box that read "$1 each, or 2 for $3".  I nudged my son and pointed to the sign with my eyes (because the seller was standing right there). He glanced down at the sign and immediately grinned and shook his head in disbelief. And don't get me going on auctions. People will pay more for used crap than they know they would if purchased brand new, simply because they get caught up in a bidding war. The best part is listening to them try and justify it afterwards.
