What is Your Favorite Piece of Fall Clothing?

Laurentide Golf CourseIt is still very early to worry about layers and keeping warm on the golf course, but I was wondering if you are looking 1 month into the future. I have talked about golfing in the rain, cold, heat and snow to help improve your game (which I hoped helped). I have mentioned various articles of clothing, but nothing really specific.

As the autumn leaves bring a vibrant array of joy, I start to plan for the cooler temperatures. As it gets colder and colder, I start to fill my golf bag with layers and ‘must have’ items to play my best all the time.

Where I live, the cooler temperatures start, well right about now. It is important to stay ahead of the temperature curve or else I am stuck on the course freezing my….well, freezing. Being really cold is not conducive to a low golf score.

DSCF4783As I fill up my bag with the usual items: undershirt, gortex jacket, gloves, extra socks and a wind breaker, there is one item that is an absolute must. It is that one item that offers more warmth than any other article of clothing.

If you have not guessed already, it is my toque. If I can keep my head warm, the rest seems to follow. Besides, what a fashion statement!

My toque is my favorite piece of fall clothing. It is always in my bag starting mid-September and only comes out at the end of the season. I seem to lose a great deal of heat from my head and my toque is the answer.

So, how about you? Do you have a favorite piece of fall clothing? What is your ace in the hole?

I am a grateful golfer! See you on the links!

  3. Jim,

    I usually toss a toque in my bag some late September and October, but I haven’t had to use it often! Layers are definitely key, and my favorite is my gortex rain/wind shell which caps off those layers nicely if the wind picks up or some moisture arrives.

    Here’s to a nice Fall (hopefully!)

    Cheers

  4. Aloha Jim,

    Long long ago the military sent me to New Jersey, Germany, and Korea – that is the sum of my cold weather experience. Oh, I did go skiing in Colorado once, but only once. Still, for what it is worth, I totally agree with you – a good cap is absolutely essential to keeping warm and they also look good.

    A Hui Hou,
    Wayne.
