No hahaha. I mean't when your out playing in regular clothes and it starts raining. Your rushing to get your rain gear on and the pants get hung up on the shoe or the velcro won't stay open. I was just asking for suggestions of how people get them on fast.

get BOTH cuffs over the shoes first. Then just pull them up. I think that's what you're looking for.

Hence reason number 386 of why I like spikeless golf shoes.  No cleats to collect mud and snag on your rain paints.

I've also found that spending a few extra bucks for quality rain clothes, like Zero Restriction or FootJoy or Sunice, helps.  Those brands seem to have a slightly wider leg, longer zipper on the bottom of the pant, stuff like that.

Hahaha....rain gear is for p$ssies..................

I've never EVER worn rain pants before...LOL    If it's summertime and it rains, I'm wearing shorts and my legs won't melt.   If it's a warm day...........I don't need a rain jacket either.    If it's a cool day, I'll throw on a waterproof "pullover" , but that's all.    Hahahaha...this thread cracks me up....... this "how do I put on rain pants" crap makes me want to slap my forehead.

Shoes like the True Linkswear make it real easy.  They don't hang up.  But usually if there is rain the forecast, I will just wear the rain pants to start.  In the summer, I just put on the jacket.

If it is going to rain I will for sure be golfing. Better than sitting inside all day. If I do wear rain pants it's at the start of the round. I guess if I were to put them on mid round I would find the driest spot possible and take my shoes off to put the pants on.

    • My Swing (b101)
      Not much of an update, as due to a lot of work in the run up to exams, I haven't actually hit the range much recently. I've also quite enjoyed taking a break from endless swing thoughts and just getting things feeling a bit more natural. The flight is now high, with a 7 iron flight looking more like what my pitching wedge used to look like. The shape is now usually right to left with the bad miss still when I get the face closed at impact. Distance is definitely better, too, with a 7 iron now carrying around 170 on a good hit - at least 10/15 yards longer than with that shorter swing I had around the turn of the year. I'm going to get on the range a bit more in the next few months and will start uploading some footage, but things are looking and feeling pretty good.

      Stupid easy to hit, too.

      I find it becoming a strange discussion. My 2c. Stick with your evolved instructor. Or respect the given instructions. And deal with it. Use what you think is helpfull. Otherwise I do not understand why you would seek advise in this thread. I might be wrong but to me it seems you do not trust your evolved coach and or the given opinions.    To me, it presents an insight how top coaches are looking at your swing.

      Handicap card completed - Off a 23 which is a bit higher than I'd like, Going to play in my first comp next month hopefully. Still working on those blow up holes. Shot an 86 yesterday which is my best round in a long time! 
    • What would a PGA Tour player shoot at your home course?
      @iacas Not sure why you feel the need to try and make people feel stupid? What's the attitude all about?

      Because you seem to think that nobody else has any valid arguments, I felt compelled to contact a friend of mine and ask him about the subject. He has won twice on the MacKenzie Tour, 4 times on the Gateway Tour and played in the US Open in 2010 at Pebble Beach. I Facebooked him a few days ago and heard back from him today. He said that his Tour buddies of that calibre typically shoot in the mid 60's (or lower) if they play an "average" course for a Pro-Am or a sponsor's event or for a casual round. He added that he played a municipal course in Phoenix last week (he didn't say which one) and shot -8 without ever having seen the course before. And he was never able to make it through the final stage of Q-School so he self-admittedly doesn't have the skillset of the PGA guys. I still say the average Tour player would shoot in the low 60's at my course. Here's the scorecard of it, and Nick Taylor's scores from the 2006 Provincial Tournament. He was only a junior at the time and hadn't played for the University of Washington yet. Safe to say his handicap has improved a little bit since then  and he still shot 68 twice and under difficult tournament conditions! No way he'd shoot that now.
