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.

I take off all my covers before I tee off and toss them in the basket of the cart. I dont buy a six pack or bring a cooler so I dont need the space.

I used the cart basket once, luckily I wasn't far when I returned to get it. Now I place it on top of clubs or hang it on alignment sticks where I see it.

Either, but I think I’ve lost one leaving it in the cart basket

I just have a driver cover. It has a magnetic closure so I attach it to any club it grabs. Then replace after each driver use.

Took the putter cover off on day one, threw it away. (As I do with all clubs) It is chipped and beat up, other than the face. Love my old putter

Most of the time I set the cover on the seat as I am walking away from the cart. Just makes sense to me since I will always notice it prior to driving away.

Only that rotten driver gets to wear a hat in my bag. I truly think messing with a putter cover would drive me insane.

Considering a new 5W this year and that might mean screwing with another cover. 

I use a trolley most of the time and have my woods on top. That provides a convenient little slot to jam the driver cover in there while on the tee box. Have never had any problems losing the thing.

This ^^^^^

My concern was I'd forget them some day, but so far I haven't.  So far a basket-full of headcovers has been kind of hard to miss :)

The only problem is being careful putting irons back in the bag.  With the headcovers off the woods it's far too easy to ding the edge of one if you just start the shaft of an iron in the bag and drop it in.  Ask me how I know :-(

Driver and 3w covers go onto an alignment stick, and putter gets stuffed into the slot or sits on my towels. I used to lose my putter headcover a lot as a kid but the only one I lost, within the last 10yrs, was a 2-iron headcover, which I didn’t really want anyway. 😁

I don't have a putter cover, and the wood covers just get tossed on the seat of the cart usually.

Maybe one day, there will be the option for rfid tags, like your Tile, to be sewn into your headcover.

No cover for the putter.  Driver goes on top of the bag.  Fairways I added a string between so the empty one dangles.

I picked "other" because there's no "all of the above, depending on circumstances."

Though almost never "pocket" or "Take off before round and replace after round" with the driver or woods.

I take the cover off my putter and store it in the bag before the round starts and put it back on after it's over, regardless of walking or riding.

For the other clubs with a head cover, if walking (with a push cart), I put the head on top of the bag and get it back onto the club after the shot, as I start walking away. If I am riding, the first time I need that club, I throw the head cover in the cart's basket and leave it there until the round is over. Sometimes, I have one club (very rarely two) with the head covers still on at the end of the round...

For some reason the putter cover always goes into the cart basket.  Maybe because I’m pulling my towel out of the basket to take to the green?

All others just get tossed on the ground.

As far as I can remember, I’ve never lost a head cover of any kind.

    • They could leave the Masters bubble and focus on total career achievements, but maybe that deviates from the intention. Eventually they may have to choose players who only won once. «First on the tee, Patrick Reed!». Or maybe they’ll be off with the whole thing. There aren’t that many multiple winners these days. Phil, Bubba and Tiger are the only ones with wins this millennia.
    • I’ve had my Leupold GX-2 since 2010. Don’t remember the price, but perhaps around $200-300. Not a big investment if divided per year or round. I’ve spent way more on balls. It’s not a replacement for the course guide, which I always want to carry if they got one. The rangefinder is a distance measuring tool and doesn’t show the layout of a hole. Many courses around here doesn’t have much in ways of markers. Typically 200, 150 and 100 meters. So the on-course aid hasn’t been affected by the tools. I used to have to study the guide, look for one of those three markers and try to walk off and guesstimate distances. Now I can focus on my approach, where to aim and quickly get the distances I need. I play faster and better with it.

    • Lesson coming up on Thursday 4/15: After 5-6 weeks of really good ball striking (by my standards), full swing has regressed. After my last lesson, I had some backswing and transition weight/pressure shift feels that worked really well. I was hitting almost everything with center-face contact (within tolerance of a mid-handicap player), AoA and launch angles were all in the right window, ball was going where I aimed it, shot shape was reliable, distance improved. Then in my last round suddenly I had no idea where the ball was going to go. I have a little deal with myself, that if I can get my index below 10 and keep it there, I am getting fitted for a new driver, so I am a little miffed at what I experienced last round. I doubt there was a sudden change (maybe there was, who knows), but what I suspect is that there was some slower, less noticeable regression that was going on, that finally transitioned into a significant on course problem. Putting and short game are still good enough (nothing special), so that at least I am not losing any strokes with these elements. I've gone back to basics for now with practicing, and I don't want to over-self-diagnose any issues and use a shotgun approach to problem solving, so happy that I have a lesson this week to figure out what's gone wrong.
