    Nike Storm Fit

    I am looking to gear up for rainy season and am looking at the gear out there. I was wondering if anyone has tried Nike Storm Fit rain gear and what their thoughts are. Also, is it a significant improvement over Clima Fit? It is pricier but I am not sure what the difference is.

    Yesterday I bought a Fusion with the Microsoft Sync System and I am wondering if anyone else is using the Sync and what your thoughts are. Any good tips or tricks? The user manual is about 85 pages so its going to take me a while to get through it, but so far it looks like a fun gadget.

    Flag Stick Etiquette

    I hope you guys can help me out. I picked up golf since moving down to Mexico, and down here every course is caddie mandatory.
