When the clouds gather and the wind rises, light hearted golfers go home. But not the die hards. Those truly committed to the game simply slap on their rain gear and play on. The conditions of nature are not an excuse to go inside. They are instead an invitation to test your skills. In golf’s motherland, weather is essential to this sport — it makes for a valiant pursuit. Varied forecasts are an opportunity to experience golfing environs in new ways. When precipitation is present and the gusts begin to blow, those who are most in love with golf prepare to go out again. Somewhere beneath a pulled down cap, drenched by rain and challenged by the game, lies the sly smile and warmed heart of a golfer in their element. There are no stoppages here.
