Golf is an outdoor sport and from time to time you will book your tee times and it will rain. Let’s make sure you’re playing to the best of your ability. Remember though if there is thunder on the golf course then get off. Where there is thunder there is lightning.
You are going to need the right clothing and equipment. Get those rain suits out, you’ll need the jacket and pants. Always pack the umbrella, hat, towels, and multiple gloves. Keep your towels and extra gloves in Ziploc bags to keep them dry. Staying dry will keep you comfortable during the game.
Perhaps you will want to wear two pairs of gloves during your rainy day game. Have you noticed Phil Mickelson wears two pairs when he’s playing in the rain? “I started wearing two gloves it the year that Darren Clarke won and I made that run on Sunday. “That was the first time I really did that, so I had instant success, and it’s been kind of a staple for me. I always carry a pair of those, and any time it rains, I put them on. Any time it rains, I like to do that.”
Another great tip is to dry your golf ball and club face off before you tee off. Kee those dry towels up under your umbrella and remember you have to adapt to the course when it rains. The course changes right in front of you. Wet conditions mean less spin for shots but slower greens and softer fairways. You’ll need to adjust your game and club accordingly.
