Rain. The avid golfer's best friend (because it weeds out the non-avid ones):
Rain pants are a problem, though, even if you don't wear regular pants under them. One solution is to leave your rain pants in the car and wear a swimsuit (as Tony did) or nylon "hiking shorts" (as I did). Both probably violate our club's dress code, but anyone who might have complained was at home, hiding indoors. I just ordered a pair of 100 percent synthetic Tony Hawk Plaid Performance Shorts , on sale at Kohl's for $22 -- which will be my warm-season rain pants from now on. Shorts are much more "breathable" than Gore-Tex, because the leg openings act as vents, or chimneys, and who cares if they get wet?
