People like to tell me that the cover you put on your driver doesn't matter. "How many strokes does that take off your scorecard?" they say, "how many putts does it make for you?"
To those fun-suckers, I reply with a couple questions of my own: "How can you quantify that feeling you get when you're reaching for the big dog on a long par 5, and Yoda is looking you in the eye?" and "can you evaluate the mental edge you get over your playing buddies you have when you're packing a pair of American flag boxing gloves over the woods in your bag?"
