WHAT'S YOUR REACTION?

In the words of Luke Bryan.
Rain is a good thing.
Hold up.
It can be a good thing, but not always.
On the golf course, it can be good or bad.
Here are some pros and cons of golfing in the rain.

Pros…
Don’t sweat, as much: If you are like me, the second you get on the first tee you already have sweat running down your face and your hands are clammy trying to make a three-foot putt for double bogey. I am by no means out of shape, I just sweat a lot. In the rain it is nice because it is a constant cool down effect.
Balls stop on the green: As a high handicapper once in a while I aim right at the flag and actually hit it there. But the problem is the greens are hard and fast and it will land at three feet and roll to about 25. The nice thing about playing in the rain is the greens get wet and your ball essentially plugs on the green. Also if you skull a shot or hit it a little thin you have a better chance of it sticking it on the green.
Pace of play: Well no one likes to play in the rain. So gear up and go play because no one else is going to. You can get a round in record time. The course is yours, take advantage. Man up, in Europe they play in the rain all the time, it is almost normal.
Cons…
Wet: Your feet are wet. Your glove is wet. Your clubs are wet. Everything is wet and it sucks.
Ground is wet: Most of the time when you’re playing in dry conditions you can mishit the ball a little and still have a mediocre result. Not in the rain. Your club goes five feet into the ground and the ball barely moves. You then pull your club out of the ground like Excaliber and try again.
Rough: You better know how to hit it straight or at least play your massive slice because the rough is going to feel like Oakmont out there in the rain. The rain knocks the rough down so it is like bed head hair in the morning. Good luck finding your ball.
Europeans have to deal with rain all the time, maybe Americans need to get out of their skirts and play in the rain. It isn’t that bad.
