Cord grips are great for the rain but murder on the hands, especially when they are all pruned up.

Ur welcome Asahi, I got new one but didn't bring for the Batam trip. N that's where Eden, Zhenxua, Wilkang, and myself played through the heavy rain for fun. We were drenched so bad, Eden poured water out of his shoes.

Actually, i used to hate rain (refering to no lightning of cos) since it makes the grip feel slippery (or makes me think it is - leading to fear of swing), clothes wet (restricts swing comfort), droplets drip from wet cap when putting (which screws the putting stats big time...)...

Now, I've learnt a little here and there from others and got a few aid solutions that makes the rain a lot more bearable:

- spare rain gloves
- spare righty rain glove (it helps during wet weather and for post-range marthon blisters too)
- rain-proof wind-breaker that keeps you dry and comfy (got a nice cheap one that's just such a gd deal - $30+ from umbro.. best buy sia... somemore got the hood to prevent the 'cap droplet phenomenon")
-cord grips
-spare sports towel in golf bag (zip-locked)
- pack of cards (zip-locked) to prep for worst-case-scenario
- umbrella, of cos...

Hope this helps... heh

here in Singapore can play in rain?? so far only allowed to continue in drizzle (not heavy enough to use an umbrella). Also the buggys got rain hoods for the bags so even in pouring rain, it give adequate protection for your belongings.

I love playing in the rain Smile

Why? Can please explain your love for it.

The reason I love it is because everyone else hates it.
Especially during tournaments, we have to continue playing in the rain sometimes thus I have already "mastered" the art of liking the rain when I play.

Not to mention that I have a raincoat, 5 pairs of gloves and 3 extra towels in my bag. cheers
