To me they look like eBay Chinese knockoff iron covers.

I’m left handed, it’s so hard to find clubs I like. I have a set of MP53’s that I love and I use iron covers so they will last as long as possible. If I was a tour player or even right handed I prob wouldn’t use them. Pretty hilarious a tour player is using them.

Despite how ugly that bag looks it’s still looks better than his swing. But he clearly can make it work so good luck to him.

The kid has OCD.. I can respect that.. lol :)

2 Gloves was a bit much tho..

Does he always use two gloves? Hong Kong can be pretty hot and sweaty



Always with the two gloves. Started when he was young, tried to play with only one, couldn't do it, always wore two since.

Can't understand why anybody gives a rat's tuchus about head covers. Of all the things . . . It's like getting mad at someone for putting a bra on a sports car or a bedliner in a pickup.

It's that part of the golf season now in the northern hemisphere.

Exactly.

You have to respect anyone who goes against the tradition and convention in their field, and they end up achieving positive outcomes.

That is why I will always respect DeChambeau.

Here is a prime example of a person going against the grain in their sport and changed it forever.

So if I understand you correctly, you have a 3 step process after you hit each club: 1) spray club head,2) scrub club head with brush and 3) dry clubhead with towel. WHEW!!

You say it's only 15 seconds per club, but multiply that times 90 shots and you've just added another 25-30 mins to everyone's round. Then everyone else in your foursome starts doing the same and you've got a complete cluster F.

No offense, but the guys in my group wouldn't stand for that, nor would most golfers.

We have a guy in our group that started to use the little brush bucket at the side of the cart to clean his clubs after EVERY shot and then that morphed into a process of hit, scrub, dry etc after every shot. There is simply no need to clean a club after each and every shot and to that level.

There's a reason processional caddies simply carry a towel. One side wet, one side dry. Looks professional and it works.

it's possible he does it while others are playing their shots, which would add approximately 0 minutes to the overall round.

This. If a guy keeps up, he can have as many steps to his club-cleaning routine as he wants. The slow players I've been forced to observe generally aren't quickly and purposefully cleaning clubs, they're simply not doing anything quickly or purposefully.
While I'm no fan of iron covers the math doesn't add up. On average 43% of shots are with your putter. Should hopefully be no need to wet & brush these. Guys that know how to keep pace could clean 3 sets of clubs with no problem. Lets talk about the 2 guys that drive to one ball, fiddle around. Then drive to the other guys ball. (which is always the other side) :russian_roulette:  Instead of dropping off to 1st ball and going to over to other ball. Both get ready to hit shots then meet up in the middle.WaaLaa no more 5 hr. rounds. :clapping:

I would agree 1000%. My ocd, doesn't allow dirty clubs back in the bag... I actually have a small flip-top, bottle with some soapy water that I use to spray the head then brush, then wipe with MF Towel.. 15 Sec tops..
Meanwhile players who have 2 min pre-shot routines never even notice.. lol

Hi, *waves* Angry guy... I am sorry that your friend is a donkey and has piss-poor manners...maybe have a chat with him about his behavior and how it makes you feel? *hugs*
Anywayz...  I clean my clubs while my playing partners are going through their respective pre-shots... AND I am 50% ninja.... so total stealth mode.. *poof*..

I was at the tournament, and he really did play well.  Weird look with two gloves and sun sleeves and those iron headcovers.  But I thought it was mainly because it was raining.  I'd say helps keep the clubheads dry a little?  Not the stylish look, but he did play steady and kept Fitzpatrick at bay playing in the same group.  He even shot the course record 61 the second day.  Quite impressive as I don't think anyone expected him to win before the tournament.

Fosbury used iron covers too? I knew there was something suspicious about him.
