Don't get me wrong, the 910 headcovers are nice, and I liked mine when I had the 910 D2, but I'm not sure you can say the nicest and classiest by far... I have the RBZ right now and think that headcover is just as nice and I liked the headcover for my R9 as well. Really I kind of like any head cover that is the traditional "sock" type or whatever you wan't to call it, not really a fan of magnetic/zipper closures.

I hate advertising on my covers or anything for that matter. Currently I have a bear and a skunk covering the driver and the 3 wood respectfully.

I have had the nickname Bear (or versions of) since I was 12 or so and I always have at least one bear on the clubs. The skunk was from the kids. I think it is a statement of some sort :)

I can only spend on green fees and good equipment, most often 2nd hand stuff without head covers.  So when i need a head cover i go off to the thrift shop and search out some tall colorful stockings, and often soccer socks are the best.  Yeah, i know it's weird, cheap and only partly effective. I just don't need 'full protection' for my head so the socks do me fine. The advantages are simply that my pull trolley is immediately identifiable because of the bright blue cover on the driver and the bright yellow covers on the 2 hybrids, the ease of removal for faster play and lack of possessiveness towards these marginal items.

Not original but I do like the Cobra head covers. I usually take all my head covers off and leave them in the car when I play. I'm afraid I'll forget it in the golf cart or leave it on the course someplace. I have looked in Golfsmith, Dicks and on-line and have not found one I would use.

I've checked all of these above mentioned covers out and they are all pretty nice if you ask me. I am looking to add some color and character to my bag this winter and was just wondering what everyone else prefers. I have the Cleveland Classic head cover which is pretty classy as far as having a retro leather look to it but also a Mickey Mouse head cover that is bright and colorful. My son loves Mickey Mouse so figured it wouldn't hurt to throw that on the clubs for a few rounds.

Daphne's makes some nice animal-themed headcovers.  Ive got a dragon on my driver.  In Japanese mythology, dragons were believed to scare away bad spirits and I could sure you the bad spirits scared out of my golf game.

Beyond that, theres some really cool headcovers from Japan.  A lot of them are anime/manga characters, as well as some Snoopy and Hello Kitty.  Its all really expensive though.  Theyre cool and all but I have a hard time pay $75-$100 for a headcover.

IMO....the best covers are personalized.  The first thing I do when I buy a new club is remove the cover that came with it..LOL

I will have to check them out. I don't know about forking out that much for a cover but I suppose it all just depends.

My favorite kind of headcovers are the "Stealth" brand that you can buy at Golf Galaxy and other places. Made of a highly durable, stretchable, rubber type fabric. Easy to place on your club and easy to remove. Knit headcovers tend to stretch out and develop holes over time - the "Stealth" ones do not.

    • I think an active lead knee (or both knees) certainly helps with sequencing. In order for the knee to move forward and around (and straighten) it helps for it to gain some flex and rotate internally on the backswing. Creates some "flow". I basically described what I mean by active knee movement in my previous post in this thread. Like I said, doing the knee stuff in of itself might not be the answer, have to consider how the torso is working to facilitate the motion/pieces. While I love Jack's swing and think there is a lot we can learn from it, he was a special players and he would have been just as good with a swing where he kept the lead heel planted.
    • Quality over quantity! I understand the concept, but 2 grand for 3 wedges? There's no way they out perform vokey or any of your other major wedges enough to warrant those kind of prices! That's just my opinion. You're 100% correct there are people with money to blow who will buy them just to say they did. IMO it's all about the player. Spieth for example could take any wedge and most likely perform better than I ever will be able to. Which I'm sure you will agree to some extent. Just blows my mind at the cost! 
    • I'm still putting my money on you being the bigger head case.  
    • The dude has won 2 majors with glaringly less talent than the other top players....I don't think that happens to a head case. People tend to think otherwise at times because he wears his emotions on his sleeve so vividly, but Spieth's mental game is still more of an asset than anything else for him IMO. With his relatively limited talent, you don't accomplish things that only Jack, Tiger, and Seve have done if you're truly a head case. Reality vs. perception difference here.
    • The site of the 2017 U.S. Open is near my old stomping grounds...I was born about 30 min. away from where Erin Hills was eventually built.  I moved from that area long before the course was even planned, so I've never been there or played it or anything, but I learned some interesting things this evening. I have a good friend up there who works for a limo/shuttle company, and he has been driving people from Madison, Milwaukee and O'Hare to Erin Hills for several days, and he made several comments on how remote the golf course is.  It might not be exactly in the middle of nowhere, but apparently a short drive would get you there. There is only one way in, and one way out.  And these are country roads, not four-lane highways. They announced this site would host the U.S. Open in 2010...seven years ago, and they couldn't get a better road system in place?  I thought that was one of the things that they took into consideration when they scout potential sites?  It sounds like this course was earmarked to host USGA events before it was even built, so if they set out to design a course that would one day host a major, why wouldn't the road infrastructure be included? Anyway, the course itself is a monster...or at least can be, when the stretch it out.  From the blacks it plays 7,800 yds, but it looks like it will play about 7,700 during the tournament.  All four par 5s are over 600 yds, two par 4s are over 500 yds, and two others are over 480.  This is the first time in many years the course will play to a par of 72, which actually gives the guys a chance to make up some ground.
