Driver Head Covers

The big dog! Our top selling driver head covers are customers first choice when it comes to starting their head cover collection. Why? It covers the biggest, usually most expensive club in the bag. It’s also the club that hits the ball the furthest, has the loudest sound, and impresses everyone in your foursome when you hit it well. Another reason for this style being our number one seller is because every golfer has a driver. All of our other covers are for clubs that a golfer may or may not have. 

Looking for more? You can pair a driver cover with a fairway wood headcover. We’ll dig into those next.


Golf Club Covers for Fairway Woods

Fairway wood club covers are our second most popular style of club cover. Made for a golfers 3 wood, 5 wood, 7 wood, or 9 wood, our wood covers feature the same traditional barrel shape as our best selling driver covers but in a smaller footprint. Almost all golfers will carry at least one fairway wood, typically, that’s a 3 or 5 wood. These have smaller heads as well as smaller price tags compared to drivers but golfers still want to protect them as they will come with shiny carbon fiber or titanium bodies. 

Looking for a club cover for your fairway wood but don’t want a barrel shape? Check out our hybrid covers below. 


Hybrid Headcovers

Next on our list is the hybrid headcover! As it’s name suggest this club is a hybrid that fits inbetween a golfer’s fairway woods and irons. It’s a new-ish style of club that is quickly becoming popular due to its easy-to-hit properties. Our hybrid covers feature a traditional 2-piece design (front and back) with an elastic grip integrated into the back of the covers outer shell. Now before you go gifting a hybrid head cover to someone you care for make sure you check to see if they even use one. 

A little secret we have at Cayce is that our hybrid covers will fit on most fairway woods. Typically we’ll say the 5, 7, and 9 to be safe as those have smaller heads that are similar in size to a hybrid. It’s a nice alternative to our popular barrel shape and if you already have a driver and fairway wood cover in the bag you might be barrel-ed out. 


Mallet Putter Covers

We can’t forget putter covers! Mallet putter covers are for a new, modern style of putter and like it’s name suggets, it’s a bit larger than a normal blade style putter. Like drivers, all golfers carry a putter. The mallet style putter has a large head: it can be round, or sqaure. The reason for the larger head is to spread the weight over a larger surface area and then it becomes easier to hit with a larger “swet spot”. Cayce Golf developed a larger, square one-size-fits-all mallet putter cover which accommodates almost all mallet putters on the market. We also added extra magnets to our closure to ensure it will stay snug on all shapes and sizes. The only type of mallet putter our cover does not support is a niche center-shafted style. 

Blade Putter Covers

As we mentioned above, there are multiple styles of putters which can be broken into two main categories: Mallet, and blade. Our blade putter covers fit the more traditional blade shape which is often referred to as Answer or Newport style. Blade putter have a smaller, thinner head that slides into the cover (which resembles an upside down shoe) and is then locked into place by a magnetic closure. Our putter covers fit all shaft styles: heel and center.
