 - tossing all the covers in the cart basket.

What would even be the point of owning headcovers if you’re gonna do that? I’m baffled.

I agree with this wholeheartedly, my feeling is head cover protect the thin wall and the finish on "woods"/hybrids", random marks on the top are also a distraction while setting up for a shot.

 

I do all of the above except putting them in my pocket

I voted "on top of bag" for both, although at times I have placed them on the seat of the cart as I walk to my shot. I used to put them partially in the slot where the club resides. After a round

Far too late for that.  The only hate more fierce than I have for it, is the hate that it has for me. If I weren't such a law-abiding person, I'd have murdered the bastard by now.

Lost your putter or lost your putter head cover?  If it's the former I bet you could bring your handicap down if you had a putter.

Once upon a time there were a lot more woods with numbers closer together:

head covers would help to keep you mistaking your 1 wood from your 2 wood  or your 3 wood from 4 wood.

Are still playing those beautiful Persimmons?  Head covers would have kept them from club chatter and the irons beating them up

I put them in my back right pocket.  My snot rag occupies the left back pocket.

Let me start by saying I've never left a headcover on the course. I've also never left a golf club behind on a hole. But I've played with many folks who have. 

My driver headcover nearly always goes into the slot in the bag where the driver was. Same with the 3 wood and any other woods or hybrids which may be in the bag that day. I always always always put the cover back on my woods after each use.

Because I'm conscious of other folks who may be in a big hurry behind me and I know that sometimes I'm a little anal about how my clubs are stuck into the bag, I have been known on occasion to jump in the cart (if we're using one) and put the head cover back on the club as I ride, or just hold onto the head cover and wood as I drive. Then I neatly slip the weapon of choice back in the bag once I get to the next shot. 

The putter headcover is a different story. The putter headcover almost always comes to the green with me. They I frisbee toss my headcover to some location near the green's fringe between my putt and my bag. No idea why I do this but I do. I've seen in my course vlogs and I'm pretty sure I do it 99 times out of 100. The only exception is when I bring extra weapons with me greenside. For example a club to chip with or something like that. Then I put the putter headcover with the extra weapons, again, generally on a line between the hole and my bag. 

Once again, I've been known to hold my putter and headcover as I drive to the next teebox where at that time I'll re-sheath the putter and put it in it's proper location back in the bag. I know I like my bag with everything in its proper location and I always always always cover my putter and driver when not in use.

I leave my driver and putter head covers home when I play. My fairway covers go in the back of the cart when I use them.

Played a round yesterday and rode in a cart.  Driver/hybrid headcovers usually got tossed in the basket before each shot.

Putter cover had much more variety. Placed on the alignment sticks sometimes, shoved halfway into the bag others.  Any time I was off the green on my approach however, putter cover stays on and it just goes on the ground with the wedges while putting.

Friend had a different but efficient method, putter cover is tossed on the ground just outside of the cart while walking to the green so he was to walk over it on the way back.

I take the headcover off when I am using a club and either drape it over my alignment sticks or in the basket if I am riding. I then replace it after the shot. My putter cover gets stuck to the little velcro strip on my bag.

I stuff the putter cover into the top of the bag.  I put the headcovers for my driver, three wood, and hybrid onto the alignment sticks.

I don’t have a putter headcover, Driver 3W etc I generally drop on the ground unless it’s wet / windy , then I jam it between shafts. I carry my bag.

For the Putter I voted "Other" since I lost it years ago and do not have one.  For others I voted "Cart".  I would place them on the seat so that I have to put it back on before I could sit back down.  For this coming season I am planning to walk more often so I will need to find a different place to put them

Yes, I still have the putter.  But given my lack of skill with the putter it may have helped if I did lose it.

Driver = off at 1st tee, on after 18 tee

3w = in cart basket, back on after shot

4 thru 8 hybrid (knit) = in pocket, back on after shot

putter = in putter well, back on after putting

I'm confused.  I thought head covers were to protect against dents and dings.  Please supply a photo of the top of your driver.  😁

When walking, I just drape the headcover for the club in use over the top of the other clubs. If I'm in a cart, I'll usually just stick it on my seat, because sometimes you want to get in the cart and go rather than putting it back and then driving away.

I've had my driver five years now without any scratches or dents in it as a result of having the head cover in the cart basket. It seems like most of the people I see playing do the same thing. I'm not sure how  I get a dent in the top of the driver anyway? Actually, the driver isn't affected with so-called bag chatter because it extends higher than every other club. The only way it would get a dent in it would be slamming a club back in the bag wildly, or something like that. If you want, I will take a photo of it though.
