When I golf, I typically keep my driver covered except to swing, the remaining clubs I take the cover off at the first hole and put back on after 18... is this right or what clubs do most people cover during the whole game? I imagine the irons and hybrids can be left unprotected while playing... thoughts?
Covering your hybrid

This, exactly. If you put your driver in a strategic place in the bag so that irons aren't whacking it on the way out and back into the bag, it won't get beat up IF you leave the headcover off all round as meenman indicated.
My 3-wood, 5-wood and hybrids always have headcovers on until they are used. Headcover off, hit shot, replace headcover return to bag. Irons - don't have covers for any of them. Putter has a head cover as well.
