Driver and Woods and Head Covers?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 

I have always wondered this. Most golfers do not put covers on their irons, myself included. Why do most golfers, myself included, keep a head cover on our drivers and woods. What about our woods and drivers make them require protection? I know they tend to be hollow and dentable, but 20 years ago they were solid wood and most people kept them covered. I have seen threads here discussing if you should have your irons covered but why should I have my woods and driver covered?

I use wood covers because they are painted, so its easy to chip the paint.  Not to mention the sound of them clinking together my entire round would drive me crazy.

Drivers are made of thin-walled titanium, irons are thick steel. That's the difference.

I kind if figured when it came to the modern drivers, I put a dent in my driver first time out with it. Never thought about the finish on a wooden driver. Makes total sense now. Thanks

Hang on guys... Any good titanium driver is not going to dent from riding in a cart... The cheap aluminum ones do, but any name brand should be under warranty and replaced if it Dents even from you smacking a ball the wrong way.

I Actaully under cover mine the whole round and cover back up after round is over.

I always cover woods/ hybrids because they are similar lengths and bang together loudly the whole time.

Good luck getting a warranty claim approved on that.  They arent going to warranty something that was abused.

They are covered... they aren't supposed to dent... Just like the they covered if your shaft breaks...

(TM does at least... I can't speak for every brand)

I put covers on ALL my clubs. I don't want them banging against eachother causing needless nicks.

The longer headcovers on woods offer a bit of protection for the shafts as well. I am more concerned about the shafts banging around than the club heads. Keeping the painted finish on my woods chip-free is a bonus too.

I like looking down at a driver/wood head that is scratch free.

Ive seen the iron covers at the store but rarely see anyone using them. Might not be a bad idea for forged irons as they tend to ding easier. I do think that would be a hassle every time you use an iron to remove or replace the cover.

Iron head covers? Never had them, but I did pair up with a guy who did and he said they were great, until he lost one.
