Confessions of an Iron Cover User


Recommended Posts

I have hardly ever lost a head cover. Probably that's because like another poster it's part of my routine. Pull club out of bag, take off cover, play shot, put cover on and return to bag. I've lost perhaps two or three covers when they've fallen off a club. It's annoying but I'd never waste time going back for them. I buy these: ZHJZ Artificial Leather Red Golf Iron Head Covers Headcovers: Amazon.co.uk: Sports & OutdoorsAnd for £12 I ain't wasting more than 30 seconds of my life looking for a lost one.

Cover, in the garage??? Ok... I have a GT3 and a BMW M sedan (my daily driver), neither are covered but both are kept in the garage. My buddy has twenty collector cars in a large garage, none are covered. To each their own. Have a good day.

I once used iron covers for a while for my first new (or almost new) set of clubs because I wanted them to stay looking new, but after they got dinged up from play I quit using them. I can't remember every hearing anyone complain, I never played with any friends just whoever I was teamed up with at the course.

Have them now but have not always used them and the biggest drawback is losing them 2-3 times a month on the course. Ive initialed mine so they do come back usually but its going to happen no matter how hard you try. They will either fall off by their own doing or you will leave one laying on top of your bag and its gone. Its worth it though...my new irons still look great because of them.

Ceramic coating is THE best and worth every penny. I don't like Bra's on beautiful cars or women.

What's kinda odd about iron head covers, the people that use them slams their clubs into the ground, like the rest of us. Also, cast club heads don't get bag chatter blemishes like my soft forged 620s. My buddy has TM cast irons and keeps covers on them. I don't think he knows cast heads are not susceptible to dings.

While the sound of irons while I walk is something I enjoy...the sound of planting the bag at the spot where my drive landed gets me into the Pre shot routine that I love. Time to zone in and hit a golf shot. Truth be told...I’d rather not play than have iron covers. But...I don’t judge you for having them. You be you.

WOW -- That's as extreme as I've ever heard, "I'd rather not play than have iron covers".

I currently playing iBlades, no chatter to speak about, that said I have a set of MP33 that I had refurbished and I will use covers on them, they look absolutely amazing, I do not understand the issue with iron headcovers, what I think is that if you spent your hard earned money on anything you should take care of it, however you chose, I refuse to judge anyone who use or don't use them, I simply do not care about anyone's opinion, to old to care about stupidity.

@5baytjd was trying to have a bit of fun with it, but see your point. I’d still play with covers. Heck, I’d play with a kids plastic set if that’s all I had. Lol

@5baytjd I’m not nearly tall enough to ever be on a high horse. Lol. Thanks!

I do play with a buddy that uses them. He can sneak up on you with those covers!

@goheels11 - I too am built too low to the ground for high horse adventures... I don't use them for the stealth factor, but for the re-sale value increase on my forged clubs.

I just have gotten into the habit when I take them off, to always put them in the top outside front pocket (have only lost one in 3 years -- when I got in a rush and didn't stick to the routine).

I tease my anal retentive buddy all the time about iron head covers that he uses on cast heads and loses intermittently. He even tried that believed to be logic about money on me. I reminded him, he more than me, slams his irons into the ground, leaving divots that can give us a glimpse into China. I play soft and perrr-dee Titleist 620 blades and only leave surface scraps. To my thinking, no matter the iron, they are tools that are slammed into the ground, maybe mat, which does far more damage than minor bag chatter, which already shows a tad on my 620's.

Irons are NOT in the same category as how I care for a GT3 that is tracked or weapons that need to be cared for to insure shells properly eject. Even my professional kitchen knives are kept in a block, washed immediately after use and regularly sharpened. All that happens to my irons is they get wiped off after use and put back in the bag.

The one set of cast clubs I bought (X12 Pro) years ago, I thought wouldn't get banged up w/o covers.....wrong! Not as 'bad' as forged but definitely get nicked up.

cc8a32da-0689-49c4-b502-68afd8654a42.jpegI’ve always used iron covers, not so much for noise reduction since any sound on a golf course is music to my ears.....:) I use them to protect my sticks from any unnecessary scratches/nicks, for reminder purporses, and because I always like my things to match and look good. Our clubs are a big deal. Nothing wrong with taking extra care of your cherished things and looking good while doing so. I golf quite a bit with my friend of 20 years, he’s a slob. His clubs are always as dirty as his car, clanking around , and forgetting irons on fringes. I guess we’re all programmed differently...
