How I wish there are automatic withdrawable shelter courses available. If there is rain, the shelter will be activated. Golfers can golf whether rain or shine ... Even with intense lightning ... Is this wishful thinking on my part? Laughing

My biggest annoyance with the rainy season (aside from having to cancel games etc.) is that balls get plugged very easily. So, a good shot to the center of the fairway does not guarantee that the ball will be there when you approach it. You'll need to do some looking/digging around.

I try, my footie friend, but the ball tends to have scuba tendencies so likes to look for water. And, during the rainy season, water is everywhere.

I use handkerchief all the time in times of rain. Wrap it around the grip and it won;'t slip. It work pretty well for me. Smile

I use Golf Pride's Multicord grip which is pretty good. But, when it rains heavily, I doubt any grip can give you the resistance you want. My recommendation is to also carry a towel which you need to try and keep dry (hang it inside your umbrella). Wipe both the grip and your hands before and after you swing. That helps.

carrying a towel is akin to a headband on MC head on his 3rd hole....

Vinc golf has it at Far East Shopping Center. but abit pricey IMO. Golf pride multi-compound is good enough. bring a hand towel along with u during the wet season to wipe down ur grips b4 the shot.

My handkerchief is the best that I have discovered. Use this method way back in 1996 while a member of Pulai Springs.

You can use it for:

1. Wiping your mouth after a meal.
2. Wiping your perspiration.
3. Blowing your nose.
4. And the best part was wrapping around your grip when it's wet. Laughing

Just make sure it's the cotton type not the silk type. Laughing

I used to "fly" the clubs in wet conditions, but my instructor taught me the trick of hankie round the grip. So far so good...

So now i have a hankie in the bag, just for rainy days.
