People tend to scoff a bit at iron headcovers but, when you’ve splashed out a large chunk of your hard-earned cash, then you want to look after them and, for anyone carrying or using a trolley, there is a lot of clanking around with your irons.

Aaron Rai uses them on tour and his reasons are particularly valid and, if it’s good enough for a European Tour winner, then it’s good enough for you.

“I grew up in very much a working-class family, and golf has always been a very expensive game,” Rai said. “I started from the age of four and my dad used to pay for the equipment, pay for my memberships, my entry fees. And it wasn’t money that we really had, to be honest, but he’d always buy me the best clubs.

“When I was about seven or eight my dad bought me a set of Titleist 690 MBs, and they were like £800-1000, just for a set of clubs for a kid. I cherished them. When we used to go out and practise, he used to clean every single groove afterward with a pin and with baby oil. To protect the clubs, he thought it would be good to put iron covers on it. I’ve pretty much had iron covers on all of my sets ever since just to appreciate the value of what I have, and it all started with that first set.”
