Hooked On Golf Blog

I’ve been touting how cool the products from SUMI-G are.  My new golf buddy Marius, the cranium behind SUMI-G, has a talent for making super hip, elegant, unique and functional golf accessories.  Every round of golf I play I have people drooling over my new head covers.  Just two days ago a military buddy of mine wanted the driver cover so bad I gave him the one off my personal set so he could have one in time for a trip to Hawaii.

Tired old head cover designs

Lame head cover #1: This one is a stretchy cotton sock which wears out and eventually just falls off.
Lame head cover #2: This one is leather or plastic and has velcro, which wears and and gets shabby looking over time.
Lame head cover #3: This one is leather or plastic and has a zipper.  The zipper may work for 1-2 rounds, then fails.

SUMI-G Mega-cool super stylin’ hip headcover

Looks

The SUMI-G head cover (hybrid shown upper right, driver cover lower right) has a stylish look with a silky black finish which feels like velvet.  I’m no fashion expert, but the black finish will match any bag color.

Mechanical enclosure

This headcover has a unique mechanical closure which protects the head.  The mechanical enclosure allows for installation of the cover with one hand can be put on the club from the ground without even having to bend over.  This one handed ground installation can save having to bend over dozens of times (drivers, fairways, hybrids) during around, helping guys like me with a bad back stay off the injured reserve list.  This 12 second video below shows just how quick and easy it is to slip the cover on:

Rigid exoskeleton

I’ve been excited to write this review not just because this is the coolest head cover on our planet and several others, but because I could use the words “rigid exoskeleton.”

The SUMI-G head cover employs a rigid exoskeleton to protect the club and the shaft.  Drivers these days are quite an investment and I don’t know about you but I’d sure want a rigid exoskeleton protecting my $500 driver with the $150 shaft.

On the course

These headcovers bring more enjoyment to my golf rounds because of their ease of use.  I just throw the head cover on the ground by the tee and slip it on with one hand when leaving the tee after blistering a drive down the middle.  It has become sort of my “post shot routine.”

Conclusion

Style, uniqueness and a perfectly useful functionality.  This is the coolest innovation in head covers in years and they’re so classy and sharp looking to boot.  Who wouldn’t love to own a head cover which has a rigid exoskeleton and convenient one handed ground installation?
