what is your opinion of animal headcovers?

Recommended Posts

My Christmas gift wishlist is a little short and my wife suggested an animal driver headcover. I've always liked them, but if I have one, would that make me look like a total d-bag? I like this yellow lab (because it looks like my dog) and this polar bear (because I kinda like polar bears and polar bears = ferocious and ice cold, which is what I wish my golf game was like). If it makes a difference, I normally shoot mid 90s (in case it's one of those things where it's okay if you're good, but not okay if you're not very good).

Golf is just a game, do what makes you happy out there.

Having a little reminder of your best friend out there is pretty awesome, go for it.

I personally don't like those animal covers. But you shouldn't worry about what other people think about it or you. As long as they are not majorly offensive or something like that, just buy and use what you like ! It's your hobby, you life, your enjoyment ! Go for it !

I am not a fan of animal covers...but the bear is kind of cool. In the end you will find that no one really cares and if they do they are the dbag.

They remind me of early 1990's clothing styles (I'd say "fashion", but I've never been fashionable). Too much pointless fabric - which is totally fine for other people.

Headcovers are just one of those things where you use what you like. I really don't have an opinion one way or another about animal headcovers, just use what you like and screw those who may take issue with them. I have NY Jets headcovers and they don't always go over well here in Dolphin country.

Roll with it... Who cares what anyone thinks about your headcovers, if you like them that's all that matters... Have fun with it

I have 2 dogs. One Golden mix and one shepherd mix. I got one that resembles the golden about a year ago. Then I just got one that looks like a shepherd not too long ago. I just got a 3 wood so I can now use the Shepherd cover. I think that animal headcovers is no different than anything else for a head cover. Just personal preference.

Plus I enjoy having the pet reminders out there with me while I'm golfing.

Don't worry about what others 'might think', if you like them, then get them. Then, just kill them on the golf course. I have 2 in my bag, a Disney 'Tigger' (because he's one of a kind) and a Garfield that my brother got for me on a trip. I used to have a really cool wart-hog instead of the Garfield, but he fell off some where. Here's a tip...I've since added a 'jacket-type snap closure' to them so I can snap them around the shaft and they won't work themselves off when walking.

Hhaving an a goofy headcover in your bag doesn't make you look like a d-----bag. Asking us about it makes you look like a wimp. In other words grow a pair. No offense intended.

I see animal head covers like tattoos....if you are going to worry about what people are going to think / say. Don't bother getting them; it obviously doesn't mean that much to you.

Nothing to think about here man. Buy what ever the hell you want. Period.

Alternatively, if you decide on a full set of knit headcovers, read my older thread below. Ju Ju makes very high quality headcovers and will use any colors you want to match your bag or what ever. Super cool lady too. Affordable and fast shipping (unlike most all others).... http://thesandtrap.com/forum/threads...+ju+headcovers -Dan

    • Not sure if we disagree on any point, was just agreeing it becomes more mental as you get better.  I've played a lot of sports in my life, tennis seriously through high school and competed d1 in college (for those that will accept this as I was a runner).  And even in running, it's hard for me to say that mental game was not of paramount importance when in competition. Agree that if you didn't get your body to the physical state (including muscle memory) to compete, you were already out... but I've personally witnessed (myself, opponents, teammates) so many fails/losses due to the mental game it's hard for me to completely discount it w/ a clear conscience.  And I'm not just talking any-given-sunday... but over seasons as well.
    • You guys are lucky.  I actually enjoy practicing.  Chipping and Putting games etc.  I don't mind hitting the same club over and over and workin on things.  I just have ZERO time now to practice.. lol  My time is now hitting into my net for 20 minutes or so or chipping balls into a hula hoop working on distance control.  Maybe once a week away from the house
    • To the OP.... I'm just as you are, kinda of torn between yes they should change it & no keep it the same..but I say keep it the way it is. My reason is the 2nd part of your answer in your original question, for me it wouldn't be exciting to see the 29th or 30th ranked guy win & thus be rewarded for 1 great weekend & that being the last in the Tour Championship, when it's a great possibility he didn't even win a tournament all season. I can live with it being the way it is, after all nothing in life is perfect so all we can do is go with what makes it the closest to the best, and it is imho.
    • John Daly never won the Masters. And he was having problems well before he won the PGA… or the British Open. Golf is almost entirely physical. You have to be world-class physically before your mental game can even matter. If you're not world class physically, you'll never even GET to the PGA Tour. And you need to be a 6.5-index physically before you shoot like a 6.5 index. If you blow up in tournaments, yeah, you've got some mental work to do… but you're still a 6.5 index because of how you swing and hit the ball and putt and chip, etc. Between peers, the mental game is a sliver of a separator. But sometimes at the highest level that's all it takes. Other times, you can be so good physically (see also Dustin Johnson) that you can be a stooge and still win.
    • I admit, it's mostly a memory from me, but I'll ask my Dad his name to google him.  But the thought still remains, aren't there a lot of guys that can routinely throw up mid sixties in tournament conditions on varied courses, but still can't ever get anything going on the Web.com? Maybe the guy I am recalling was a head case, but my guess would have been there's a crapload of these same head cases that are trying to qualify for either the web.com or pga. Is John Daly's success and problems physical or mental?  I'm thinking particularly after he won the masters.
