Summer is well and truly over and if you're a UK golfer, it's time to prepare for the wet weather. So maybe it's time to bin that jacket that's been screwed up in your bag for 10 years and invest in something new.
When it comes to golf jackets, there's a huge range to choose from and they all feature modern technology to help you stay as dry as possible when the rain comes lashing down.
It's important not to feel too restricted when you're wearing a jacket on the golf course, but you also need enough protection to stop you coming off the 18th looking like a drowned rat.
