Let’s face it, if it is not going to keep water out, there is no need in using it. Your focus will be greatly affected if your face is full of water and your clothes are drenched. Proper rain gear will help to keep you dry and maintain your focus.
In terms of shoes, manufactures spend a lot of time on research in developing a quality golf shoe, especially waterproof golf shoes. The fact that you are going to spend long hours on your feet, it is important that these shoes are not only waterproof, but lightweight as well. Heavy shoes will gradually wear you down and your last few holes could become unbearable.
So, when choosing a shoe for wet weather, make sure you fully inspect the build quality of the shoe to make sure it is both waterproof and light.
In order for me to play my best, it is important that the equipment fits. It is important not to feel hindered in any way. The conditions you are playing in are tough and so your rain gear should be as comfortable as possible. Certain brands of shoe might fit your foot better than others, and if this is the case, stick with that particular brand
When playing in rainy conditions, the first aspect of your game that will be affected is your grip. Your hands will start slipping on the grip of the club. Your feet will start slipping on the wet surface when you swing. These aspects will affect your ability to make a confident swing which will have a direct effect on the quality and enjoyment of your game. It is therefore imperative to select the best glove possible in order to maximize your grip on the club through impact.
Ground surfaces quickly become wet and slippery. It is almost impossible to make a quality swing if you do not have quality golf shoes with a solid base to do it from. Without good grip, a golf shoe is not going to be of much use to you.
4. Value for Money
When it comes to the price of goods, the retail price can be somewhat misleading. In order to make the best informed decision, one should consider the above mentioned considerations as well as how long the product will actually last.
Regarding golf shoes, waterproof shoes tend to be somewhat more expensive, but believe you me, it is definitely worth it. I sometimes find it strange that golfers will spend huge amounts of money on a driver that they might use a maximum of 14 times during around. But they struggle to buy a quality shoe that they will spend almost 6 hours in during a round. A quality golf shoe is a great investment, especially if you are a regular golfer so keep that point in mind!
