Aaron Rai uses them on tour and his reasons are particularly valid and, if it’s good enough for a DP World Tour winner, then it’s good enough for you.
“I grew up in a very working-class family and golf was always a very expensive game,” Rai said. “I started at the age of four and my father paid for the equipment, paid for my memberships, my entrance fees. And it wasn’t really money that we had, to be honest, but he was always buying me the best clubs.
“When I was around seven or eight my dad bought me a set of 690MB Titleist, and they were £800-1000, just for a set of clubs for a child. I cherished them. When we went out and practiced, he would then clean each groove with a pin and baby oil. To protect the clubs, he thought it would be good to put iron covers on them. I’ve pretty much had iron covers on all my sets since, just to appreciate the value of what I have, and it all started with that first set.

How to choose iron headgear
What factors should you consider when considering buying iron blankets? We’ll take a look.
Number of guests – First, you need to make sure you choose a brand or design that offers enough covers to protect all of your irons in the bag. There’s no point in having 7 covers when carrying 9 irons, right? As such, read the product specifications properly to see how many covers come with the set.
Strength – The purpose of iron covers is to protect your irons underneath, so they should be well made and strong enough to deal with movement in the golf bag. Additionally, they need to be strong enough to cope with proper daily use, especially to be able to be taken off and put on regularly. Specifically, we would be aware of the fabrics or materials used here. We’ve seen leather models to be very good in terms of durability, while cheaper models tend to be made from thinner polyester,
Ease of use – Ultimately, an iron cover should be easy to put on and take off the iron, because otherwise it adds unnecessary seconds and discomfort to your lap, which is unnecessary, especially when faced with an iron hit. delicate.
Design – The brands seem to offer different iron cover designs, so you don’t have to go for the simple black leather finish. Instead, you can get flags, symbols, or just about anything on your iron cover, so just pick one you like.
Budget – Our final factor is budget. Considering the high cost of iron sets, it makes sense to properly invest in something that will protect them, but considering you’ve already spent hard-earned money on clubs, bags, balls, clothing, etc., think how many you are. willing to spend on iron blankets. Above all, there are models at different prices.
