You'll notice 14-3/10 specifically bans weighted head covers. A normal head cover is not designed as a training device.

Question Dave, why not take the cover off? the impetus of the swing could shake it off or you cold damage it. I cannot see the point.
Intended to break 90 this year, not going well.

Concentrating just getting round the course

It creates extra resistance and weight in the head when you swing I use to practice with mums straw broom to strengthen my hands arms etc the straw head of the broom caused a lot of resistance and it teaches you to put extra strength in at the correct time to keep the momentum up . Well that's my theory anyway
