Driver-head covers protect clubs from the elements. Inside a cover, the club head will not be as affected by moisture, increasing the club's life. Covers also protect driver heads from getting scuffed or nicked during transportation. By preventing damage, driver-head covers can save a lot of money in the long run.
In golf, driver-head covers have become a fashion staple, and some golfers are willing to shell out quite a bit of money for the more stylish covers. There are personalized covers with names, covers that look like animals, and then the typical brand-name covers.
