A revelation!

Post by Mr. Etiquette » Thu Oct 13, 2016 2:31 pm

I have always done my best to avoid bunkers. Not that my technique is poor; I probably make a sandy 50% of the time. What horrifies me about the sand are the rakes. My word, who knows where those things have been or what has been in contact with the handle! Defecating geese, rabid raccoons - the thought is stomach churning.

Then it hit me the other day, an idea that rivals Einstein's best: latex gloves. I now carry a package of 24 in my bag. When faced with the daunting task of touching a bunker rake, I now slip into a pair of surgical gloves. After performing the task, off comes the gloves followed by a decent wipe down of hand sanitizer.

Mr. Etiquette, I'm surprised you don't always have a caddy?

Why stop at the golf bag. Latex gloves everywhere.

...and where do you leave those gloves? In your bag? Oh no, think of all the bacteria that you've just put in that side-pocket! :rofl

I once played a local course pretty early in the morning. We noticed balls picked up something blue when a greenkeeper walked up and warned us to not eat on the course and sanitize hands immediately after the round. I still don't know what they sprayed on those fairways and greens... you know what, you need a glove when picking up the ball from the cup too!
