Rules of Golf, Part 2

Things were looking great, your swing was grooving, you’d been drinking “energy beer” for two solid days, and the putter was rolling like a fat girl in flour.

And then the sky opened up. Torrential downpour. Biblical proportions. (Something like Kentucky.)

Unable to see your clubs, let alone hold on to them, you pull out a small towel and wrap it around the grip, offering some degree of stickiness, and play on.

Is this allowed?

Interestingly, there is a clear exception made for this rule specifically allowing the player to wrap a towel (handkerchief, etc.) around his grip to reduce slippage. I didn’t buy it either, but ’tis true.

I would like further clarification before I can answer authoritatively. Exactly which club and grip are we talking about here?

Hrm, I change my mind. I can wrap a small towel around “my club” and “play on” all day long if I’d like. YES, is my answer.
