Confessions of an Iron Cover User
I have always been a walker. I play better, I feel better, and enjoy the game more when walking. But I hated the sound of clubs clanking together with every step. So I used neoprene iron covers and endured the ridicule for years. They never, ever slowed my play as I average 18 holes in a little over 2.5hrs playing by myself. It was never about protecting resale value, just about the noise.
However, once I got my pushcart to save my back and a set of CMBs, I decided to leave the iron covers off. And you know what happened? I have realized that I like the sound of my clubs clanking together. Its like a "go time" sound now because its the sound of my bad going in/out of the car.
With that said, they will probably go back on if I ever carry for a round. I don't know that I want to hear it 12,000 times in 2.5 hours.
