The REAL Reason You Need Head Covers on Your Golf Clubs!

By Golfforbeginners
When golf clubs were made of wood, the importance of the head cover was undeniable; wood is delicate and could be dented by other clubs in the bag, damaged by the elements and through careless tosses into the back seat of your buggy.
Time has progressed, with clubs being constructed from tougher and more durable materials, so the likelihood of a club head being made of wood is slim (unless you're going for a certain look over performance). Not only is the head of your golf club in danger of being scraped; the shaft is also delicate and can be damaged, hence the need for the material on the head cover and a nicely cushioned bag.
Your golf clubs are an investment, not only in dollars but in the way you feel out on the course. Golf club head covers serve as more than just a way to brighten up your bag. If you don't have coverage, it's time to look into your bag, and determine what you need in order to protect your precious set.
Craftsman golf head coversA recent golf club headcover giveaway in association with CraftsmanGolf.com forced me to look into my own bag.
My golf clubs are all properly protected but, since it's the season for giving, I also looked into my husband's bag.
Geez, his bag was a shambles...his driver had an old, ratty head cover, the covers on his woods were mismatched
...well, not anymore!
HAPPY HOLIDAYS Barry...you have just hit the golf club headcover lottery! Barry's bag went from drab to FAB with the help of CraftsmanGolf.com.
Barry is very patriotic so his driver, three and five-wood are now cheerfully draped and protected in red, white and blue: the "USA Flag Long Neck Golf Head Cover set"!
Made of durable materials and stain/water-resistant, with interchangeable tag numbers and long neck socks to protect the shafts, these headcovers are impressive, combining great looks with functional design. Thanks for your help, Craftsman Golf!
Now, onto the real reasons why golfers need to use headcovers on their golf clubs.
Do head covers affect performance? A head cover won't provide you with a better physical game (call your PGA teaching pro for help) but the act of looking at something that brings you joy during a round, might just improve your mental game!

Reasons to Use a Head Cover

Identification: It's easier to easily find your club by looking at the tag in a bag filled with clubs than trying to find the number or degree of loft.
Protection: Keep Clubs newer longer, from head to shaft
Visual Appeal: It's the same reason you dress better, look better and feel better playing golf - psychologically speaking, it's uplifting to feel good when you play! Show your team or American spirit!  U.S.A., U.S.A.!!

A putter can be one of the more expensive purchases you make and can also suffer the wear and tear of being banged about next to the wedges, so be sure to protect your "putt-for-dough" club as well.
