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.

    • The progressive wing of the Dem party hates Kaine. He is pro TPP and favors deregulation to wall street. However he brings in VA and has a solid record on many issues for moderate Dems.
      I would not be surprised if you see Bernie speak at the DNC. He will tell his supporters that even though HRC is not their first choice he (Bernie) will have a better chance of working with  her for their issues, than DT! I hear they are countering Baio with prime time slot speech from Erin Moran!!!!!
    • Newtogolf's post is important.  I do not like hanging around people that are used to having a staff.  I just went on a raft trip with a friend of almost 50 years.  We do our own trips, and it is important for everyone to pitch in as it is a lot of work for guys in their 60s.  My friend just retired from being a doctor, and never really figured out how to help for the good of the group. He kept wanting to consider himself a "guest."   That is after we had some long discussions about being part of the team.  He will not be invited back. I would not want to play golf with people that are used to having a caddy either.   
    • Most double bogies, especially from the average golfer don't come from "taking risks", they come from a poor swing that results in OB, water hazard, lost in the woods, whatever.  A decent player can still break 80 with a double or two for exactly that reason, it's only a couple of bad swings.   The reason that most golfers never break 80 is that they make a lot of those bad swings, that add up.  But even good golfers, who break 80 (or better) consistently, will have the occasional bad swing that will result in a penalty and subsequently a double, or worse.   Which is "harder" is a matter of skill level. For me, someone who, as the OP asked, is as likely to break 80 as not, if I had to bet on the result of any given round before the first tee, I'd bet that I break 80 over a DB free round of any score.  Higher handicap players will find the opposite.  Scratch or better players will seldom fail to break 80, but will still have their share of individual blowup holes.  They'll just use their superior play on the remaining 16 or 17 holes to offset the couple of bad swings. 
    • I don't know enough about his situation.  Maybe not immediately -- he wouldn't qualify for the PGA Championship or the FedEx Cup playoffs (you can't earn points as a non-member, which he is for this event).  But probably by end of summer to start the 2016-17 PGA Tour season as a member.  Unless I'm forgetting someone, he'd be the third amateur to win a PGA Tour event in my lifetime (Verplank, Mickelson). 
    • Thanks.  I figured I would have heard by now if it made a difference, but I'm glad to hear it just the same. I tee off in just over three hours for my first round with the game golf.
