Under Armour Storm Ultimate Rain Jacket

At the end of July I was caught in one of the worst rain storms in my golfing career. You can read about it here.

That aside, I knew after that day that I needed to upgrade to the 21st century. After a bit of research I decided to purchase the Under Armour Storm Ultimate Rain Jacket.

I think that is what makes a “good” golfer, having a plan and being able to carry it out just as planned. As opposed to a player that lines up a shot and “hopes” the end result is positive.
