Headcovers are often an afterthought, but they shouldn't be. These little pieces of material we slide over our drivers, woods and putters not only protect our clubs, they offer a fun opportunity to inject some personality into our overall golf look. (Because, yes, a golf bag is absolutely an extension of a golf outfit.) Far too often, we stick with the default headcover provided by a manufacturer, but unless that manufacturer is paying you to play its product, it's time to ditch it for a conversation-starter that you'll be proud to carry. Headcovers are broadly available in three categories: knit, fabric and leather. Here are our favorites per category.
Stitch uses a durable three-gauge knit and water-resistant techno wool in designs that pay homage to throwback offerings while providing the technology needed to protect your clubs in all conditions.
Seamus is available in a wide variety of designs, tartans and materials and gives you the opportunity to customize each headcover with your initials, name or logo.
Made with soft, durable, high-end leathers and materials, Dormie Workshop creates headcovers in a wide variety of designs and also encourages golfers to contact the company directly to build headcovers from scratch.
