Winter golf is really not a option where I live. As I am writing this article, it is minus 17° Celsius (1° F), 2 feet of snow on the ground, but really sunny. This is typical weather for this time of year, so winter golf is really not an option. However, I found this article that fits perfectly for the early spring and late fall. All the tips hit are spot on and I thought it was worth sharing if you find yourself playing golf in in wet, cool conditions.
The video provides the reasoning as to why each tip is beneficial. I like that part of the video the most because understanding why I am performing a specific golf shot is important to future successes. Now for the video:
Several of the tips can be used at anytime there are wet conditions, but I think you can figure out those times for yourself.
I will add a point of caution when using the driver technique hitting into the wind. Moving the forward does work for me a bit and I use that technique when needed. Dropping my right shoulder never works. I guess if I practiced it more then maybe I could offer a different bit of advice. I cannot because it goes against my view of changing my swing during a round. I try to avoid this particular aspect of course management as much as possible because of the low percentage of success. Changing my set up or swing technique just never works for me, but alas others have been successful. Therefore, my suggestion for the driver technique is go to the range first and find what works for your game.
Playing winter golf in the UK, Scotland, or Ireland equates to our spring and fall golf. Therefore, the tips offered in the video apply to most of Canada. I recommend you look at them with a critical eye in order to glean which will work best for your game.
I am a grateful golfer! See you on the links!
