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 Web.com 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.
