Welcome to GOLF’s 2021/2022 edition of the Best of Everything, where we’re providing you with the, well… best of everything! Check out our picks below or browse more items in our Pro Shop.


A headcover won’t help you shave a stroke or two off your handicap, but it does serve a valuable purpose, protecting your trusty (and potentially pricey) driver, fairway wood or putter from taking a beating during the round. These days, every club on the market — outside of irons and wedges — comes with a matching headcover, so maybe you’ve never considered the idea of splurging for something a little different.

Make this the year where that changes.

Take a look inside the staff bags of the tour’s elite and you’ll find countless custom headcovers. Tiger Woods has “Frank.” For Rory McIlroy, it’s the recognizable St. Bernard cover. Matt Fitzpatrick totes around Hilton Head’s famed lighthouse — in headcover form.

A unique headcover is a way to show off your personality or interests, without shoving it down your playing partner’s throat. With innovative headcover brands entering the golf accessory space each year, it’s become easier than ever to find a cover that fits in your bag.

If you’re unsure of where to start, the latest edition of GOLF’s Best of Everything is here to simplify the process. Our staff of experts found the best headcovers for those looking for value or those ready to splurge. Check our picks below, or visit our Pro Shop for a plethora of worthy options in other categories.

Tried and true

Seamus Headcovers

New kid on the block

Swag Golf Headcovers

Swag Golf has turned into a major player in the headcover space with some creative designs, including Pat Hughes’ official scorecard from the Chicago Cubs’ World Series win. Don’t waver if you like a design — they sell out fast.

Tiger’s choice

Daphne’s Headcovers

The same brand that produces Tiger Woods’ iconic “Frank” headcover offers a wide array of animals and characters. With many options at under $30 per headcover, they’re a great bargain.

Bang for your buck

Stitch Headcovers

Stich offers a vast selection of custom headcovers featuring a wide array of fun designs. You can get their classic leather headcovers, or go for a traditional knitted version.

Quality and creativity

Dormie Workshop Headcovers

The quality is as good as you’ll find in the industry. Throw in some imaginative designs and it’s no wonder Dormie is a favorite for the recreational and tour player.
