Anyone experiencing problems when your putting your rain gear on with shoes on (getting hung up, snags, mud inside your pants)? Any suggestions for your solution?

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.

    • First round foursome clubchampionship was yesterday. First round is to cut the field to 16 pairs, format Stableford without handicap. You get 3 points for a birdie, 2 for a par, 1 for a bogey. Worse than bogey is zero points. My playing partner had the tee off on hole 1 and hit it left in the water. I had a shot avoiding some trees at 140y from the flag and hit it at 3 feet, par.  After 5 holes 9 points (1 bogey), but then a streak of 3 bad holes and still 9 points. But then 3 pars in a row and all together 11 pars and two bogeys (24 points) was enough to end 5th (best team 31 points).  Next weekend we will play against the team that ended 13th. That will be matchplay. 
    • Does it make sense to write ".........combined together"? Why not just write "............combined"? Let's not call the kettle black. Anyway..... the following are excerpts from The Australian Golf Club's Dress Code. They are not typical of what is expected in Australia, but  some of the snootier clubs are very strict and do little to change the stuffy reputation of the game. ‘Sporting attire’. Collared shirts which must be tucked in at all times. Tailored shorts to the knee, with a belt, may be worn. Closed in shoes must be worn with socks at all times (see Definitions for appropriate socks).  Men - Collared shirts which must be tucked in at all times. Trousers must be tailored and worn with a belt. Tailored shorts to the knee, with a belt, may be worn. When wearing shorts on the course, Members must wear long socks or short white socks which are either plain or which bear only a Golf Club logo. Anklet type socks are not acceptable. Shoes must be of a type which have been specially manufactured for the playing of golf.  Jeans of any description are not acceptable anywhere in the Clubhouse or on the Course. Children 12 years or younger are exempt.  If you turn up here wearing socks with a small Nike logo they will sell you a pair of plain white ones for about $30.
    • May 27th:- 10 mins full swing practice (Driver). Moved the tee further forward in the stance, and concentrated on sliding the hips to initiate the through swing.  
    • Whether I score better riding vs. walking depends on who I am with. I have two friends who are VERY slow players and if I am in the cart with them for some reason it cost my 5 strokes a round.
