48180 is the area code.

Today was the first time I got to go out, and it was an early season par 3 scramble. The only day this week it's going to rain was today. And it poured ALL day.

Played through it and we shot +17 with a partner who hasn't played in 3 years. I'm not complaining, but it's frustrating because I wanted to try and get a judge of how this season would go.

Regardless, I was throwing darts the first few holes... then when I started to get wet the club started slipping and my bandaid on my thumb (blisters from the range) started giving away. When it stopped when we went in at the turn I came back and was knocking em on again.

If you are going to play in a steady rain, purchase some rain gloves (you get gloves for both hands).  They really work.  The key is to make the rain gloves soaking wet.  Once they are wet they grip the club very well.  I have had a pair for some time and when I must play in a steady rain, they are a real life saver.

I have been thinking about only wearing one (on my left hand - right handed golfer) to make the feel more like regular play.  Next time I play in a downpour I will give it a try.

I find I play better in the rain, with no gloves.  I do have Winn DriTac gloves so they hold up pretty well.  I find that my swing is more steady when I'm worrying about the club flying out of my hands!

Not to throw in too much of an off-topic complaint, but there was 3 inches of snow on the ground on May 1st here in Nebraska. We have a tee time this Saturday, but the forecast is 40 degrees, 20 mph wind, 60% chance of rain. Weird weather this year.

I have to agree, rain gloves are a must.

In your case I recommend special golf "snow" gloves.  They look a lot like mittens.  ;)

Are rain gloves also known as all weather gloves?  This is all I can google. What are the best?

Something like this, so i guess there weather gloves. Being in the united states, and a sane person, i would only use them when its raining, but i guess you could use them when its sleeting, snowing, hailing, fire and brimestone maybe

    • PGA2K21 is good. I play it on the PS4. 
    • Day 83 - Spent more time filming swings. It seems I’m correct at A2 or A3, getting both to be what I’m looking for isn’t working. Have more work to do before sending in more swings. 
    • Rule 2 - The Course Notes as follows. These are notes, not a recap or a summary or anything like that. 2.1 - Course Boundaries and Out of Bounds The Committee has to decide where boundaries are. 2.2 - Defined Areas of the Course There are five: general area the teeing area the green penalty area bunker If the ball is in two areas, it's treated as lying in the general area last, or in the order: penalty area, bunker, putting green. 2.3 - Objects or Conditions that can Interfere with Play Just links to other rules for loose impediments, movable obstructions, abnormal course conditions, GUR, temporary water, or immovable obstructions. No relief for boundary objects. 2.4 - No Play Zones Must take relief when ball, stance, area of swing interfered with here can be an ACC or a penalty area
    • Pm back at ya Piz.  This should be fun.  Thank you Adam as well.  We’ll have to keep comparing notes next spring when the weather gets better.  
    • Last lesson of the year today 12/2: Full swing stuff - backswing and tempo were much improved which is what I’ve been working on so happy with that. We discussed the block fade miss caused by open club face. My transition is aggressive which pulls the club face open when the handle of the club starts moving too quickly (or something like that). Quick fix was to have a feel for the club head moving and widening the arc before the handle starts going. Did some work on this at about 75% full speed and then added speed back as I got the hang of it. Putting work - did a putter fitting and when selecting the alignment aid design, I learned that they don’t matter at all for how I aim. Apparently no matter where the target was, I tended to line my aim up around the spatial configuration of the putting area (e.g., aiming parallel to the edge of the putting surface, or a nearby wall). Once I was aware of this behavior and able to consciously overcome it, my initial aim was really good. When I scheduled the fitting with my teacher I had my mind made up on something from the Edel product line, but I tried one of those ridiculous looking LAB putters and it was undeniably good for me, so that’s what I ended up going with.
