What to Consider When Choosing Headcovers

Here's what you should keep in mind when choosing headcovers.

Design

Pay attention to ease of use when choosing a headcover. Of course, you want to select a style that represents who you are on the course, but that won't get you very far if the cover is difficult to remove or put back onto your clubs. 

Fit 

Not all covers will fit all clubs. It's best to keep the precise specs of your equipment in mind when picking covers to match. If the fit is not correct, there's a chance the cover will slide out of place, which may damage your clubs. Make sure the cover fits snugly on your club before heading onto the course.

Material

Material is another top consideration. Genuine leather is highly durable, lasting 10 to 20 years with proper care. Your headcover material should be water-resistant, or you won't get you very far in the rain.

Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some commonly asked questions about golf headcovers.

Which Golf Clubs Should Have Head Covers?

There is no one-size-fits-all answer to this question. Some golfers cover all of their clubs, while others stick with the essentials. Generally, it's a good idea to cover drivers, putters, and any fairway woods in your bag because of the material construction and cost of these clubs.

Should You Put Head Covers on Irons?

You'll hear mixed opinions on this one, but that is a personal preference. Here at STITCH we do not make or promote using iron covers when styling your golf bag.  

Conclusion

Over 34 million people played golf in 2019 alone, and that number doesn't seem to be diminishing.
