If you play most of your golf using a cart, and you remove the head covers the entire round, there will be some contact between the iron club heads and the graphite shafts. Irons damage the graphite shafts in the golf bag.
If there’s a wear spot on your graphite shaft, you must be really annoyed, unless you are not pretty particular about your equipment. This is why the Long Neck Sock Golf Head Cover was born. Keep your clubs looking and performing as new.
Compared to short head covers, long neck head covers in addition to protect the golf head, still can protect the shaft, especially the graphite shaft. Simply make sure you put the sock into the bag after putting them on clubs.
