I always always always use one.. It comes off only beside the green, and always back on before it goes back in the bag.  I'm anal about the look of my gamers.

If I walk and carry, yes.

If I ride, yes.  Carts really jangle the clubs around - yet another reason why I can't stand them.

If I walk and push my Speed Cart, which is my usual, no.  It sits well protected in it's own slot, so I don't find it necessary.

While not in use, no.  I oil the carbons and store on a wall.

In transit, yes.

I use a headcover on my putter(s), being a bit of a putter ho it helps to keep them in good condition in case I get the urge to move it on to someone else.

So stuff like this doesn't happen (there are far worse examples all over golf boards). This is mostly caused by clubs chattering against the putter. Also as previously mentioned, to protect primarily graphite shafts. Depending on the finish you don't want it exposed all the time (ie. black oxide etc.)

Yes, but it's as much to protect the irons from ding marks as it is to protect the putter.

I'm amongst the most hardcore critics of all the Scotty Cameron headcover/inflated pricing bonanza, but tallying them up I've managed to accumulate nine of the damn things despite only having four Cameron putters.

I currently use a well-worn Pro Platinum cover on my gamer.

Right now I dont use a putter headcover.  My putter was a $30 buy from Ebay and my irons are pretty beat-up looking, so Im not all that worried about it.
Now, if I had a set of AP1s and a Scotty Cameron; you can bet that they all would have headcovers.

Even with the stainless steel strategically placed to prevent bag chatter? :man_in_love:

As for me, covers always get used, but I'm pretty anal with all my putters.  Even the stainless Pings get wiped after each green before getting covered again.

I use the putter glove. I used to use the factory one that came with my XG but it kept falling off. I like these ones because they never fall off and it fits in your pocket.

I always use putter covers.  I have a Scotty Cameron Newport and I like to rotate the covers depending on the season.  For example, I have each a cover for each one the majors and rotate those depending on the major.  I also have ones I use in the Fall, Winter, and spring.  Just something fun to do.

Always in transit, but find that i tend to lose them on the course when playing!!??

So i tend to take the Big Dogs cover off as well as old "Billy Baroos" sheath off.  And stuff them in the trunk or locker or bag depending on where I am.

Easy access ladies and gents!

But I'm a gentleman and always cover them up again after the deed is done!!!

Love the way Cameron covers look, only use stock ones though I dont care to spend $$$ on limited edition or Circle T covers though (maybe if I was on tour).  I'm using a Spider right now and I use the cover eventhough I think it looks terrible, just dont want to ding it up or damage the insert.

I always did until I started using the Ogio Vaporlite.  It has a protected putter well and it does not come in contact with any clubs.  Much easier this way and moisture is not a problem

My bag has separate putter tube but I still use putter headcover.  I tend to be little anal with all my clubs and I wipe them down after each shot and putt with a wet towel and again with a dry towel. :)

AM&E makes a cover for blade style putters.  It's smaller than the original version of there cover so it fits the smaller heads better.  I am pretty sure you can get the new GolfWRX Flying Tiger and the other GolfWRX covers in the blade style.  You can also try www.nameongolf.com  if you wanted a plain cover or your initials.
