Yup, the hula in my avatar is in the main bag... and one of the two hula loops (that make up the background of my avatar) is in the travel bag. Both have the velcro removed, are sewn shut (with just enough room for my napa's to slide in), and have magnets installed (inside) to keep them from falling off the small putter head.

I use my kombi headcover. Quick question though, are there any magnetic large mallet headcovers (doesn't necessarily have to be a Scotty branded one)?

Have a 05 Acorn PGA Champ been in the bag since 05.  Not the best looking cover and doesn't match much.  I just game the studio selects.  They are durable and look ok.

Anyone with a Scotty Cameron should always use a Scotty Cameron Head cover, doesn't make much sense to use another cover. The limited Edition ones are the best though, wouldn't be the same without them!

11 year old pro platinum newport mid slant with original cover.
I to, like post #61. long ago removed the velcrose strips and sewn down back seam which makes for a snugger fit geeting on and off vs falling off.

Yes, black industrial JYD, veclro is pretty much worn out after 6 months.  Wish they had a magnetic closure like some of the blade style Odyessys I've had in the past.  I think it's planned obsolescence, but will figure something out before I pay for another Scotty headcover.

Haven't had a problem with a Scotty head-cover attracting thieves to my bag; but every single time I have left a Scotty cover or had one fall out/off  the cart unknowingly, I have never had it returned or found it on the backtrack. It is like they go to a special place all their own, never to be found.

If you put the cover on the club when you put it back in the bag your scenario would never happen.

They don't climb off of the club afterall.

The local muni par 3/driving range periodically puts out their lost and found stuff for free.

I grabbed a Pro Platinum cover - it was well used then, used it on my Ping Anser.

I used it for about four or five years till I just bought a Scotty which I like) and am using the stock cover (which frankly I don't like).

But never had a problem with the velcro on the PP cover, although the fit on the Anser is such that I could usually slip it off and on.

I used to regularly game over a half dozen different anser style putters... including a Scotty, Bettinardi, Whitlam, Callaway, Cleveland, and Ping. I also have a couple "collectible" covers... nothing extremely valuable or rare, but they do hold some sentimental value to me.

Never used the stock covers or the collectible ones. Instead, I have a plain black AM&E I used no matter which putter I chose to use that round. A few reasons for this:

1) I play mostly public courses and I don't want to draw attention to my gear. The plain cover literally blends in with my black golf bag.
2) When I decide to sell any of my putters, I think a cleaner cover may help with resale.
3) I like the consistency of seeing the same thing in my bag. Since the style of all those putters are basically the same, I can just grab the putter out of my bag and not think about which one it is.

That said, I recently picked up a Callaway Dart and can't use my plain AM&E, since it won't fit.

I have a few SC covers for my 3.5 but found easier to use a gray Ping Karsten (with the magnet inside).

Other than being easy to use, I worry less about the head cover or the putter leaving my sight.

I play my Industrial JYD Lime Green and White Custom Shop head cover but none of the other ones.  I am not oppsoed to using them, but, my circa 62 was sent back to the custom shop by my wife and the head cover matches the putter paint scheme so it just makes sense.

Eh , probably depends on the buyer and intended price range.
I think anything rare and tour from Scotty can be deemed collectible.  Always depends on the buyer. I have a stand bag filled with tour Scotty's with CT or limited release headcovers.  I just use them rather than let them collect dust.

Will obviously.

What I guess I mean is if you buy a rare true 'collectable' and you pull it out of the package and start playing with it , you've just cost yourself (potentially) a ton of it's 'value'.   Of course some one out there will still probably buy it. But not another collector and not at it's original NIB value.

If that doesn't matter , then it doesn't matter.....

If I was going to play with it then "I"  wouldn't have bought that 'collectable' in the first place , you certainly don't need a thousand dollar head cover on a golf course. :)

No biggie , just saying.  (IMO)

Just because an item isnt mint, regardless of a putter or some other sought after non-golf item, doesnt mean its not collectible.



Yes, I used to game my collectible headcovers, but then I sold them and started using the cheaper ones, be them Cameron other other.  If someone wants to pay an exorbitant amount for a headcover, I am happy to sell it to them.

I only have the stock ones so it makes sense to me to use the cover that matches the putter.

The theft deterrent idea has me thinking tho, as I normally play at public courses and would not want to walk over to my bag and have my putter not be in there.

I wish the Titleist stand bags had some sort of putter well/slot like the cart bags. The bottom of my Scotty headcover always gets bent up/spreads out after a while :(
