Headcovers (Covers) For Irons - Page 8

post #127 of 253

Re: Iron Headcovers / Iron Covers

I don't use them but to each his own. On a side note, I bought one of those brushes on a retractable lanyard attached to nylon fishing line stuff a couple of years and have since replaced it with a 5 dollar "maintenance man" lanyard with a retractable chain from the tire section at Wallyworld. I keep my clubs cleaned after every shot and it keeps em looking good, takes about 10 seconds.

That was actually such a unique series of posts, whenever they were originally made, that there probably isn't a single regular poster on here that forgot it. I personally made the connection immediately. But since you bring it up, aren't you the one who introduced the following into this thread:

"does a plumber cover his pipe wrench?!?!"

I've never seen a chrome plated pipe wrench, but either way, I've also never seen a plumber (or anyone who owns or uses wrenches for that type of job) place a chrome plated tool into a padded protective covering before he tosses it into the tool box or tool drawer. A mechanic or instrument technician perhaps, since their wrenches are really expensive, but a plumber? Come on.

HAHA!!! Yeah.....it was a pretty interesting thread indeed.....

I just always thought it was pretty funny how someone can compare a pipe wrench to a golf club.....that's all. When I used to swing a hammer......I tried to take good care of my stuff......drove some nuts but I like to buy my tools once, saves money in the long run! As for where I got the 'pipe wrench analogy'....I got that from some other poster.....hmmmmmm maybe I'm a creepy Sand Trap Stalker too.............

It is hard to get the clubs to rust. I have had a putter outside on my putting green for a month with no signs of rust.

Re: Iron Headcovers / Iron Covers

What I don't get is....why is it gay to have iron covers but totally cool to have some ugly ass character has a driver cover?

Anyway, I use the iron covers while I'm riding around. When I'm about to play a round i take them off. I try to protect them as much as possible JUST INCASE I decide to sell at some point.

I sported the neoprene head covers last season when I purchased my AP1s. I bought them for this reason alone - because I had heard that the polished finish on the AP1s scratched easily. Well...they do...

Even after I used the headcovers they still looked like crap from hitting dirty balls, driving range, etc etc. So...I stopped using them. Figured they're going to get banged up anyways.

That said....if you want to use headcovers....use 'em. If some people don't like them and say they're "gay" - who cares. They are your clubs and if you feel like they protect your investment, then do it.

Personally, I found that they only prolong the enevitable. I do still use them when storing my clubs and traveling, though.

Nothing says gay more than playing a round with 'Star Wars' headcovers (yes, a total of three) guy.

HAHAHAHA!!!! I never thought about that but you are VERY RIGHT!!! I get a kick out of people showing up at a course with a giant bird or some other animal on their driver. Or better yet....some 1985 covers with a giant pom pom that their mom made for them.....but that is completely OK and manly. But iron covers to protect the clubs.....that's gay....

BTW people....not to burst your bubble or cross this line but it's golf for crying out loud!! It's not rugby!! If you play golf to look manly and tough......you might want to re-think things a bit..... Odds are a lot of you 'iron cover haters' show up to the course in your nice polyester breathable bright orange shirt, pressed slacks and ride around in a little cart.......again....not all that manly........

Know a guy who puts Nike socks on his Nike irons. They actually looked pretty good in that case.

HAHA!!!
Sad thing is....those were the days when NFL players actually were tough. Remember years ago a guy can break his leg in 3 places and he'd still walk off the field. Now, a guy sprains a finger and the trainers bring out the cart......

i just spit out my drink....seriously...i was JUST about to type that, then i read your comment!!! man, u guys are too good!!
beating me to the punch!! hahahha!!!!!


ok, ok...this thread is WAAAY off topic now

bottom line - irons covers are gay (and always will be), so are big goofy animal headcovers.......... oh and pom pom headcovers
and yep, i have BOTH the big ugly animal cover (t-rex) and the pom pom on my 3w - heres why its not gay
the t-rex is from my 2 year old as a fathers day gift and the pom pom..... well its small and doesnt take up as much room as the dino


and im Canadian.....and not afraid to kick your ass for callin me gay!! hahahah!!!.....seriously though...im not...... ;)

Re: Iron Headcovers / Iron Covers

well iron covers and driver, wood covers are the same to me. they serve the purpose of protecting a club. so if you have ANY COVER on a club....I guess your gay. Solved.

Re: Iron Headcovers / Iron Covers

How come this subject never can be discussed without a bunch of morons in here flaming and calling everything gay? Are people in here really not more grown up? Is golf not a gentleman sport, if so, does that not apply in here?
