Golf is arguably the most solitary of sporting pursuits in the world. That means there’s plenty of room for individuality and customization. Think about it, no two golf swings are the same. Putting strokes vary from Crenshaw’s long languid motion, to Isao Aoki’s choppy stroke that looked like he was killing snakes.

Golf is arguably the most solitary of sporting pursuits in the world. That means there’s plenty of room for individuality and customization. Think about it, no two golf swings are the same. Putting strokes vary from Crenshaw’s long languid motion, to Isao Aoki’s choppy stroke that looked like he was killing snakes.


That individual flare shows up in golf equipment as well. One golfer’s bag is going to look entirely different than another. Different clubs, balls, accessories, the list goes on.
That’s especially true when it comes to headcovers. Especially animal headcovers. There’s one person to thank for the animal headcover phenomenon, Jane Spicer. Actually, her mum too. Formally a puppet maker, she started Daphne’s Headcovers with her mum, the company’s namesake, when she was only 16. We’ll get into the story of Daphne’s Headcovers in a minute. But for now, let’s take a deeper dive into what exactly Daphne’s Headcovers is all about.

Our Experience

This year, we received the Tiger, Gopher, Taco and Frog headcovers. Both the Taco and Frog are new for 2020.
When I opened up the box they came in, my wife and kids lit up like the 4th of July with excitement. My German Shepherd saw a chew toy in his future. Safe to say, we kept him away at all costs.


As I sat and admired the quality craftsmanship of each individual headcover, I couldn’t help but feel the care and passion that went into the production of each product. My kids wanted to keep the Tiger and Gopher as stuffed animals respectively. Sorry guys.


I’ll tell you that Daphne’s headcovers will be in my bag as long as I’m able to play this silly game. The story behind the brand, the quality of the product, and the smile it brings to face, make it the only headcover I’ll choose.
