Golf Headcovers have several functions:
In the past woods were made – well – of wood, i.e. persimmon or maple wood. Although being solid wood, these heads may chip or crack and need to be protected from damage during a round or from the elements. When handling clubs, some jostling is kind of inevitable. Nowadays woods are made from metals such as titanium, stainless steel or reinforced aluminum allows, hence being stronger, they would need less protection. However the painted finish of metal woods may get a dang or chip when handling during a round of golf.
Golf head covers often come with a knitted sock extension. This knitted extension protects your valuable graphite shaft when pulling out and pushing back into our golf bag.
Golf head covers simply extends the look of your club and maintain the resale value of your clubs when trading in for a newer club.
