Today our “wind and rain” theme continues as we talk about preparing for playing in both wind and rain!

You can do a few things to be better prepared for playing golf in the wind and rain.

1. Have really good rainwear.

Don’t be cheap when it comes to this.  My jacket is a Sunderland which is expensive, but I have had it for 20 years, and it’s still as good as new.  It’s not heavy, so I keep it in my golf bag when I’m not wearing it.  It is also hot.  So I will wear it in cold weather as well.

2. Headwear.

The Scottish flat cap is the best in the wind in particular.  I find a hat with a brim distracting when playing in the wind.  The same applies to a golf cap. 

3. If you are playing with a caddie.

Put a towel in the bottom of your golf bag to stop water from getting your grips wet as it comes through the hole in the bottom of your golf bag.

4. Umbrella.

Keep two smaller towels and a spare glove inside your umbrella.  The #1 requirement when playing in the rain is keeping your grips and hands dry. This really helps.
