Measuring Relief Area with Headcover on Club

Q. Can I measure the relief area for my drop with a headcover on?

A. Yes. Your relief area is measured by the longest club in your bag that is not your putter. Your headcover does not count toward this distance. As long as you get the distance right, keeping your headcover on is okay (see Definition of Club-Length and Interpretation Club-Length/1).
