As summer fades into the rear-view mirror and the sunny weather goes with it, you probably aren’t ready for golf season to end. The good news is that, unless you live somewhere with heavy snowfall, golf can be a year round activity if you are geared up for it appropriately. Having the right clothing and accessories at your disposal makes playing golf in the rain and cold a much more enjoyable experience than you ever thought possible. In fact, you just might enjoy playing in the off season even more than the middle of summer because the courses are less crowded, the rates are lower, and conditions are perfect for shooting low scores.
Stay Dry at All Costs
One of the most key pieces of equipment for an all-weather golfer is a quality umbrella. If you try to play golf in the rain without appropriate cover, you will quickly become wet, cold, and disinterested. A good umbrella can shield you from the elements and keep you dry even on the ugliest of days. Quality golf umbrellas are large so as to keep you protected even from sideways rain, and will not turn inside out after a gust of wind. If you can sport one that represents your favorite golf brand and looks good at the same time, all the better.
This umbrella is sure to please Ping lovers, although it will make a nice addition to any golfer’s bag. The Ping Double Canopy Tour Umbrella has everything you should be looking for in an umbrella. To start with, it is positively huge. Measuring 68″ across, you will be able to fit an entire foursome under neath the canopy – although you should probably tell your playing partners to go buy their own cover. It collapses down to a manageable size when the weather improves, and will easily fit inside your golf bag when all wrapped up.
While the size is a great advantage, the ‘double canopy’ portion of this umbrella is what really sets it apart from the crowd. The double canopy design allows wind to pass through the umbrella while keeping water out. The end result is an umbrella that you don’t have to worry about turning inside-out while you are walking up the fairway in a rain storm. Built to last, this umbrella is reliable in the worst of conditions – if there is too much wind for this umbrella to handle on the course, you probably should just call it a day and head to the 19th hole.
Not only relegated to winter duty, the Ping Double Canopy Tour Umbrella also provides excellent shade from the sun during those blistering July afternoons. With a push button opening mechanism and high-density fiberglass ribs, you will be able to rely on this addition to your bag for many years to come. Simply purchase this umbrella, place it in your bag, and forget about it. When the time comes to put it into action, it will be right there waiting for you.
