One PGA Tour pro is using his kid's Baby Jordans as a putter cover

May 09, 2016

We've seen interesting driver head covers for years, ranging from Tiger Woods' Frank the tiger to Rory McIlroy's dog. But putter covers have lagged a bit when it comes to creativity. Enter Steve Wheatcroft.

The 38-year-old tour pro is putting one of his kid's Baby Jordans in on the bag this week. ESPN's Jason Sobel uncovered this bit of gear/fashion news on Monday at TPC Sawgrass:

Looking good, Steve. (We assume there isn't a little Wheatcroft running around barefoot somewhere.)

Wheatcroft's best finish this season was a T-36 at the Zurich Classic. He was the co-leader after the first round at last week's Wells Fargo Championship before stumbling to a T-41.

A two-time Tour winner, Wheatcroft will be making his first career start at the Players this week. If he plays well at TPC Sawgrass, he could go from journeyman to trendsetter.
