Wet, Wet, Wet

(Are a terribly dull band)

DATE: 19th October 2012
VENUE: Beckenham Place Park
ACTIVITY: 18 Hole Round

Score: Gross 109 (50/59). Net 81 (36/45)

Lowlights: The BILLIONS of rain drops that fell on us. Wet grips. Wet glove. Wet hat.

Highlights: 50 at the turn thanks to a GiR par (the birdie putt was SO close to dropping), two bogeys and five double bogies. Second nine wasn’t so ‘good’ although I still managed a par in a run of +6 over four holes.  Also, no three putts over all 18 holes.

Some, perhaps even many, iron/wedge shots are making a really good sound at impact (it’s kind of a ‘tchak!’ noise) and they’re generally starting straight and staying straight. Fewer banana shots or shanks too.

When I got home, I was so wet. Everything was wet. My underwear, my wallet…everything. Much of the following day was spent drying everything out.

    If you are going to play on rainy days, invest in a quality rain suit. I like ProQuip but many other manufacturers produce satisfactory “breathable” microfiber suits. The best, of course, feature GoreTex but I find suits with GoreTex rarely go on sale.

    The jacket is more important than the pants but both are key when it rains steadily.

    Waterproof golf shoes are also a must. I look for ones with a 2 year guarantee as I find after a year of wear (100+ rounds with 60+ walking) the shoes start to leak along the sole. Manufacturers like FootJoy have honored their guarantee in the past and replace the shoes with a new pair.
