Holistic Appoarch: How To Play Golf In Extreme Weather.


One of the most demanding aspects of a golf game is playing under extreme conditions in extreme golf weather and challenging course layouts. Skills are required for these negotiations to be successful, and by handling these situations wisely, you can become a successful and mature "thinking" golfer.

Here are some tips on avoiding the course to pass the exam given by the golf course designer and Mother Nature. Due to the long holes, the golf course can not only be played hard but for a variety of reasons, it can be played much longer than the run-length suggests. The design of the course is a lot of doglegs, holes to play uphill, bunkers strategically placed to prevent drivers from teeing off, or even narrow fairways with rough sides that play a major role in club selection at the club's choice, which may increase the difficulty.

Do’s and Don’t

To play smartly, select a really "difficult" hole. In these cases, keeping the ball in play is of utmost importance, even if that may mean hitting a longer club into the green. Pay worthy respect for these holes. Find a way to walk around the course without doing many things. Especially for tough layouts, the score can go up very quickly if you have a double bogey or worse. 

You don't have to make every hole a birdie to shoot a round of even pars. There are certainly these holes (and par 5s) where you can actively chase birdies—for difficult layouts, run as many pars as possible. Also, keep in mind-don't try to outperform yourself by playing heroic shots.

Extreme golf weather is a challenge that every golfer must understand. The joy of having a good round in the wind and rain is great. By controlling the wind, you can try the best skills in the world.

Do not hit the ball too hard with a headwind or tailwind. The harder you hit, the more undercuts will be created, and the ball will rise further into the air. As a result, distance control is lost. For consistency, take an additional club and swing 3/4.

Know which side of the green misses the ball in a crosswind. Play towards the side of the flag with fewer problems. Instead of fighting the wind, the wind helps you. It helps you deal with better challenges. Good players and professionals take a different approach to this. Attempts to play a draw shot with a left-to-right wind or a fade shot with a right-to-left wind to neutralize the effect. This will allow the ball to fly straight and give you better control after landing. If you have good ball control, this is your best bet.

Play in the rain-keep it as dry as possible! Keep your hands, gloves, and handles dry. Slippery handles cause most bad shots in the rain. Be sure to bring a rain suit, socks, and gloves. An additional umbrella for the caddy is also helpful.

To make the best golf play out of extreme weather conditions

Perfect golf weather days are rare in most parts of the country, especially during the off-season. Therefore, if you want to stay healthy all year round, it is important to be prepared to face the elements. Here's how to maximize your chances of success when exposed to heat, cold, and rain.


Rain - How To Play Golf In Extreme Weather

Preparation is essential when playing in the rain. First, you need to assemble the weapon:

Next: Keep things tidy. Make sure you know where everything is, so you don't waste precious moments messing around with the bag when it starts to spill.

When it's time for tee-off, open the umbrella and hang extra gloves and towels on the lower ribs. Plan to keep your umbrella open throughout the loop until the rain stops. Before each shot, use a towel to dry the handle. If you use regular gloves instead of rain gloves, towels are also useful for keeping your hands dry.

Keeping as dry and warm as possible makes a big difference. So try to minimize your practice swings and your time under your umbrella.


Cold - How To Play Golf In Extreme Weather

Cold Layering is important because the goal is to keep it as warm as possible.

What you need:

  • Base layer (a kind of compression wear and/or stand-up color)
  • The second layer (insulated fleece or performance fabric quarter-zip works well) 
  • Outerwear (windbreaker or rain jacket is sufficient) 
  • Hat (Replace the ball cap with a hat! There is a big difference!) Cart Gloves / Mittens

One of my favorite items in the cold season is the cart mittens. They're great in their own right, but with the addition of some hand warmers, they're a whole new level of awe. Put these body warmers everywhere you can! The smaller the room and the better it is closed.

Another discovery of my favorite is the Mobile Warming electric jacket. At first glance, it may look good, but I hate the cold, so battery-powered heat is always a win!

Extreme heat

Prospering in the heat requires far more planning than wearing shorts and a T-shirt. Ideally worn:

  • Bright colors and breathable or performance fabric
  • Wide-brimmed hat (to protect the neck) -
  • Sunglasses Sunscreen (apply generously and reapply during the round)
  • Lightweight and Breathable Mesh Shoes.

Keeping hydrated during long hot laps is very important, but proper hydration begins the day before sunbathing in front of the knees for most people. I forgot. My insulated mug is my new favorite hot weather accessory. I fill it with ice water on every occasion, and the mug does not completely melt the contents during the round.


Finally, enjoy these challenges. It makes the games we love very interesting.
