Covering your hybrid

Recommended Posts

When I golf, I typically keep my driver covered except to swing, the remaining clubs I take the cover off at the first hole and put back on after 18... is this right or what clubs do most people cover during the whole game? I imagine the irons and hybrids can be left unprotected while playing... thoughts?

Depends on whether you mind having the finish chipped..... I cover my hybrids, 3 wood and driver after ever shot because I don't want the top of the heads chipped by contact with the other clubs. Purely cosmetic though, so it may not bother you......

I put my covers on all the time except when I'm using them.

Hybrids, woods, drivers, putters. Never irons or wedges. They only get covers when I'm sending them in an airplane.

My driver cover comes off on 1 and does not go back on until the end of the round - the club next to it (my putter) is always covered, so it can not damage the driver. Hybrids and woods are covered when not in use.

This, exactly.  If you put your driver in a strategic place in the bag so that irons aren't whacking it on the way out and back into the bag, it won't get beat up IF you leave the headcover off all round as meenman indicated.

My 3-wood, 5-wood and hybrids always have headcovers on until they are used.  Headcover off, hit shot, replace headcover return to bag.  Irons - don't have covers for any of them.  Putter has a head cover as well.

Driver off and all others on, have not chipped or scratched it that way, remember though put covers on first then put the club in the bag.

When in play, I always cover my woods and driver but not hybrids or irons (or putter). I keep the hybrids near the woods so that they don't need protection, plus I figure any club that I hit from the rough(hybrid) wouldn't mind an occasional clink with a fellow club.

I leave the clubs uncovered when I play... maybe I'm lazy. I don't really see the point since my clubs are already a bit worn. Is the purpose to keep them shiny new looking, or do minor blemishes really affect the way they hit?

Won't affect playability
