I think the funniest things to look at when it is raining really, really hard are oversized men with undersized umbrellas.  You know, the umbrellas that barely cover your head and everything else ends up getting wet anyway?  Why not just buy yourself a big hat?  It will be much more convenient and cooler to look at.

For me, there is nothing better than a really nice golf umbrella.  They’re big, sturdy and worth every penny when it is raining hard and gusting harder.

There are a lot of golf umbrellas out there and they range from $20 to $50, depending on the size and quality.  Although they are a little bulkier to carry, they are worth it – especially when you see that pretty lady in the rain without an umbrella.  Trust me, your big umbrella will save the day (if you know what I mean).
