Golf Sox Knitted Head Covers - click for more
Regular HOG readers know I’m not a big fan of knitted head covers. I beat them up fast and they fall apart usually within 3-4 weeks. I do like the old school concept of knitted head covers though, and the fact that the make and model of club are not visible. That helps prevent theft a bit I think.
About Golf Sox
GolfSox is a company who calls the Netherlands home. How cool is that? They decided to make their product out of necessity:
“The idea to call GolfSox into existence was born out of need. Whoever prefers not to be a walking sponsor column or a toy shop has few alternatives. GolfSox headcovers present a subtle way of giving your golf bag a personal touch.”
GolfSox come in 10 standard styles which are all two color combinations.
If the standard styles aren’t the right color combos for your needs, they offer custom sox which are two color combos from 24 available colors.
On The Course
I’ve had two “Golf Sox” knitted head covers in play for a few rounds and these seem a bit more durable than the average ones I’ve tested before. The density of the thread or the knits seems to be a bit higher, which must be the reason.
These covers go on and off the club fairly easily and look cool. The pom poms on the top aren’t overly large like some brands, which helps keep the bulk down. Some pom pom covers have such large pom poms that they fall off when walking or riding the cart.

There’s a new golf training aid out there to help you hit your driver on the sweet spot called the Pure Shot Driver. It works sort of like the Tour Striker, with a small sweet spot and surrounding area which deflects shots drastically.

Here is the 3rd and final preview post of the trio of PING Scottsdale putters I’m testing now. This is the “Shea” putter, a mini mallet which is simple in design like the previously mentioned PING ZB S putter.

Ping has a whole putting arc system called “Fit For Stroke” to match putters with player’s putting arcs, rather than trying to match putting strokes to putters. The Shea is designed for putters with a “slight arc” in their stroke.
