So how many times have you been out playing golf only to be drenched by an unexpected downpour. Well if your an avid golfer, you’ve likely lost count or if your like me no rain or sleet is going to stop you from a good round of golf. If so, your average dollar store umbrella not only isn’t going to keep you dry, its going to be turned inside out as soon as the wind comes along.
Weather or not you keep an umbrella in your bag, you should at least keep on in the car. And much like anything else in life, the “You pay for what you get” tagline typically holds true. So if you and your golf gear want to stay dry, invest in a ShedRain Wind Pro designed specifically for those brutal conditions mother nature seems to throw our way when we least expect it.
