How many woods, hybrids, and putters you carrying? Because the total number of head covers acceptable equals the total number of those clubs in your bag.

Everyone is entitled to their own opinion... even if it’s wrong.
You shouldn’t call your own opinion wrong, be more confident than that.

Who defines what is acceptable? lol

If people purchase equipment based on what they think others might deem "acceptable" than they have more serious problems.

I have driver, 3, 7, hybrid, and putter. I think longer players have less and they act like it's a badge of honor to not have headcoverable clubs in their bag, but shorty's gotta play golf too. We need the help.

I find it funny that guys get worked up over covers. Put fluffy purple covers on all your clubs for all I care.

I don't understand why this is a thing to worry or expend even a modicum of energy/thought about.

Having said that, I do question covers for alignment sticks.....head scratcher for me.

You’re good dude. You’re “left” handed which is basically the same as having iron headcovers!

Four, five if you count the putter cover.

Driver, 3W, 3H & putter, one more if you count the alignment stick cover. I use that one to keep the sticks from wearing a hole in my other head covers. You know, a cover to protect my covers.

I mean who doesn't love personalizing their bag?

Another way to show everyone your personality or how much you spent on one off customized headcovers.

Right now I have 4 in the bag: driver, 3 wood, 5 wood, and putter.

My judgement on bags go like

0: dont play skins or get some bets going asap
1: a conundrum
2: doesn't have full set or doesn't care about their putter
3: likes long irons
4:
5: has some extra personality to them
6: has a lot of personality
7: probably Big SoIL or on the lpga
8: that's a lot of hybrids
9-13: who only covers some of their irons
14: doesn't care about pace of play or is travelling

Not a fan of headcovers. I use a total of two -one on my driver and the other one on either of my fairway woods to keep them from banging together.

Yep, that means I have a nice collection of about 35 putter headcovers that have never seen any use other than when they are in my travel bag in the belly of a plane.

I could care less how many headcovers are in somebody else’s bag.
