Do you have any fun or creative headcovers?

29 posts in this topic

Hello,?

If there's a headcover, most likely there's a story. What's yours?

I have a Penguin headcover on my driver because, well, I really love penguins. It also really helps remind me to keep my "cool" and to "chill" out haha.

So do you have anything besides those simple, brand headcovers?


Thanks so much and may god bless you all!

on my 5 wood (which is no longer in my bag) I carry a head cover from Butler National.  It is an older head cover, but it was the course that I caddied at when I was younger, and the course that used to hold the western open.

Thinking of putting a fun headcover on my driver. The black and bright yellow of the RBZ Stage 2 doesn't really "go" with the red, white and blue of everything else in my bag.

So what are you thinking about getting? Just a colorful one or like an animal or whatnot?

I'm a big Star Wars geek so maybe a Darth Vader or Stormtrooper? Big hockey fan as well, so this doesn't look too bad:

I've seen a few Yodas before. Those might be good for you.

Uh oh, we have a rivalry going on. I'm a Blackhawks fan, tried and true :P

I worked as a practice range volunteer during the 2008 U.S. Women's Amateur Championship. Lots of curious headcovers on player's drivers.

One teenage girl was finishing her post-round practice. She had a Monster headcover on her driver, a character from the Maurice Sendak book, "Where the Wild Things Are."

When I asked her if she was a Wild Thing, and she got very huffy and said, "I am not! I have excellent control with my driver and woods!"

Her mother/caddie then told her to "lighten up."

Maybe you should get a broom head cover for the sweep the B's gave you.

You could contact the iliac Golf Co. on this (see review here in TST). They could work up something for you, although it might cost as much as a new wedge.

No rivalry at all. Best of luck to you in the Finals. We'll always have 1992...

Yeah, that one hurt.

Here are some options, from Etsy.

My wife bought me a cow headcover because we have an inside joke about cows. It doesn't fit on my driver, so I put it on my 3w for a while. It kept falling off, so I had to take it off. I'd hate to lose it on the course.

I do miss having a unique headcover though, maybe I'll have to find another one someday.

    • That is what I was wondering when taking the practice stroke.  If I make a mark with the practice stroke in the rough or on the fairway...is that a penalty?  Because I see people doing that all the time...but since I am looking at where my divot/brushed grass was pointing as a reference point...is that illegal?  If I wasn't using it as a reference point would that be then legal?  That seems like some murky waters.  People are touching the ground on practice strokes all the time...
    • I activated Steve Stricker for Sunday's round on a lark, and he rewarded me with the low round of the tournament. For once, I made a smart call.
    • You can't make a mark (that you don't remove) for the purpose of alignment. That is against the rules.
    •  I hate the Be Better Golf guy. He gets great guests than doesn't know to shut up and let them speak. Annoying as heck.   I was really surprised by the poor play in that video. I though tthose guys would be better. But I do give them credit for showing their bad shots. They could've only shown the good ones .
    • Got a chance to take some on course video over the weekend. I should do more of this to get a better idea of what my actual swing looks like. I still need to get a new smartphone tripod and I can start vlogging again. Angles are a little off but nothing crazy. Driver   Stance is maybe a hair on the narrow side. The swing looks better than the results would indicate. I really thought I was still getting the club past parallel and across the line. Irons/Wedge   I didn't get a face on of a full iron swing so I'm posting this flighted wedge instead. Not exactly the same thing but it will have to do for now. Big takeaway on the swing is I'm still swinging too far right with the clubhead a little underplane and too shallow. I've been having some low point issues and it seems to make sense. Miss is still on the toe and an overdraw or a push, although from watching my videos again I realized that I still aim to the right, so I think my pushes aren't even as bad as I think they are, only that I'm already lined up right of target to begin with. I'm going to have to change my pre-shot routine to incorporate better aiming. Pitching   I included the full speed video of my pitching because I wanted to look at my tempo. Still pretty Fruit-Ninja-y. Putting Figured I'd take a putting video. This was on the 18th green, after the face on video of my driver and the flighted wedge, so a mini vlog of sorts. I'm trying something out where I hold the putter with only my right hand and then hold my whole hand with my left for stability. I was playing around with distance control because I tend to leave lag putts way short and I noticed that my left hand in the double overlap grip kind of acts as a brake on the stroke. Putting the hands together lets the putterhead pendulum better under its own weight. As you can see I definitely didn't leave the first putt short and the speed on the second putt was perfect. My putting in general has improved since I've gotten adjusted to my putter modification. Aim is a lot better and I'm hitting my lines which is leading to better results on mid-length putts. I also need to read long putts better, just kind of lazy about it, but I'm leaving some second putts longer than they should be because I'm not reading the first putts and aiming properly. I do like the grip change though and I think once I get used to that, the distance control will be better. I have some thoughts on the full swing but I'll hash them out later. Maybe
