There’s a reason golf umbrellas are HUGE lol

It’s all about that push cart umbrella attachment.

Keeping them dry/waiting under the umbrella/playing quickly is pretty much how I’ve managed moisture when I’ve had rainy rounds. Good to know I don’t need to do much differently.

I may spring for cord grips in the end, but I think I’ll feel it out with what I’ve got and rain gloves for a few rounds before I make a change. Keep any suggestions on preferred grips coming if you want to, and thanks for the advice, everyone! Looking forward to meeting as many of you as I can in 2021, even though I’ll be a ways down I-5.

I use cord grips used to game the MCC and have switched to the tour velvet cord. I occasionally switch to the standard tour velvet. I too originate from Alabama so between the humidity there and the rain here the 2 tour velvets have been my favorite. I don’t use rain gloves and will not use them. A towel with the umbrella works just fine.

How many times does a person have to play Gold Mountain - Olympic #18 before they lay up and finish with a good score? Kicked me in the nuts yet again because I’m stupid.

Same here. What year did you graduate?

  1. Went to Auburn a couple of years before transferring to an art school in Chicago. After ten years I’ll finally make it to the PNW.

Is our buddy Joe from Seattle around?

But for real…the thought of playing left handed for 12 months makes me think I’d play ZERO golf for a year.

I think @Tron got popped for roids / HGH / Or whatever Bonds was taking. Now he has to play left-handed and establish a new Index in order to protect his natural right-handed playing number.

I will also entertain any number of other conspiracy theories you may have to offer.

Z grip is my choice. I’m down here in Portland. Stays soft and pretty durable.

Played a SLOW 5 hr round at The Classic today. Under $50 to walk = mega value. Course is in great shape. A really fun old school muni.

HOWEVER - I might have forgotten that I haven’t walked 18 in 80+ degrees in a long long time. I hit the wall on 15. It was a tough scene.

By the time I climbed the small hill to the 18th tee box, playing 560 into the wind. Well…

I play every morning there. About 630 tee time. It takes me 3 hours on the weekday and 4 on the weekend. The course is in AMAZING shape right now.
