We are the best equipped, most stylishly clad group of wooden soldiers ever to threaten to storm a golf course, at least with respect to our rain gear. However, according to our July poll results, we are loath to actually use the gear for their intended purposes.
Collectively, Dear Readers, it appears our spouses, parents, children, and well wishers have stuffed our stockings will all the trappings necessary to forge through the toughest summer thunderstorm.
However, as revealed in the second July poll question, we rarely take the opportunity to use them.
Until going through my golf bag to lighten the load for my Guys’ Getaway last month, I had practically forgotten that I had won a really nice compact Titleist golf umbrella in a scramble last year.
If I were caught in a downpour on the course tomorrow, I’m not sure I’d be able to find all the snaps for my golf hood on my snazzy new Sun Mountain golf bag in time for the hood to do any good because I’ve only had cause to use the thing once this season.
Like so many things I “ought” to do in golf, as in life, pushing myself to play golf under any and all conditions is just one of those things that gets put off until next time. Maybe.
In case you’re wondering, the “other” answers to the question below were “depends on the forecast” and “only in a tournament or scramble.”
Keep your grips dry out there, folks.
