This week’s FJ Diary comes from Sentosa GC, Singapore.
Greetings from a hot and humid Singapore!
With the mercury pushing 30 degrees Celsius, and 80% humidity, this week poses problems on all weather fronts! Tuesday morning we were faced with a torrential downpour which lasted the best part of 6 hours. The range was flooded, the course was flooded, and we were flooded with players hiding from the storm. A busy morning passed with nearly all of our FJ Ambassadors picking up their shoes and gloves. With over 60% of the 204 strong field using FJ shoes, and around the same using FJ Gloves, it was a busy start to the week. Fortunately, the rain soon stopped, and the course drained in double quick time, allowing the players (and their Pro-Am partners) to get underway.
We have seen a few traits developing during this week as players try to deal with the humidity and sweat levels caused by the weather. Some players have opted for the versatile FJ RainGrip, which allows the players to keep a grip on the club when their palms get sweaty. We have also seen players changing their glove size to a Cadet sized glove, which is designed for people with shorter fingers and wider palms. Check out our 'Glove Fitting' web page for more in depth advice on how to determine your size.
