How to Keep Your Golf Bag Dry in the Rain

read this post here My part of the country is now more than a year into one of its longest droughts ever. Gary, our terrific superintendent, has done a remarkable job of keeping our course in great condition, but you can tell that we need rain. Here’s what the creek that feeds our irrigation pond looks like:

  1. So what happened to the I-Dry System and the Rain Safe, both by Big Max, that you described about this time last year (October 14, 2015)?

I took my Big Max to Atlantic City this past weekend because I had to fit three golf bags and someone else’s pushcart into my Subaru, and I took the Rain Safe to Ireland in May because it took up almost zero space in my luggage. I’m pretty sure there’s no type of golf equipment that I have only one version of. You should see my collection of rain pants.
