If you think I am slow with the headcovers, just wait until I am reaching for my wallet to pay you off if you win. THAT will be an epic slow. :laugh:

In all seriousness,

I believe it takes about 2 seconds (averaged) to remove a headcover and 2 seconds to put one back on. The iron covers come off very quickly, but the driver and putter covers take a little longer. So...that is 4 seconds per stroke average.

Now, lets suppose you shoot an 85 on any given day. First we deduct 18 strokes for putting because given a 2 putt average, one of those putts will have no headcover action going on. (unless you cover your putter between putts :P ).

So now we are down to 67 strokes where a headcover is in play. At 4 seconds per stroke, that is 268 seconds wasted with headcovers. That is equal to about 4.5 minutes per round.

Maybe a thang, maybe not.

I would like to have some for my forged irons. They already have tiny dents all over them, but... I personally feel that they are a little silly. Irons are going to get beat all to shat. Yes, if I was traveling I would, but just for my use, no. I wanted to buy some but they will last me a good few years, and that's all that matters.

Mine are for the rattling. My clubs were beat before I got the covers. In the winter months I walk a lot, and that rattling while walking drives me nuttier than I already am. ;)

Total ****** looker here. I use iron covers. :laugh:

Keeps my clubs from clanking all around.

Not sure if I help bolster the correlation or am an exception to it but I have a 12 handicap. :laugh:

sorta.... LOL

I've NEVER played with a scratch to 5 handicap golfer who used iron covers while playing. What does that mean, I don't know.... During transit? or while traveling? I couldn't say. I do think they might be a great idea while traveling but I normally wrap a golf towel around all the heads and use my Club Glove travel cover. I travel with my clubs a LOT, never had a problem. I can see where if the rattling drives you nuts while walking they might be useful.
