Know the rain and go with it

Under the rain, many things are out of your control and make your shots go somewhere you don’t want to. Because of the extra water, your ball, your clubs are all heavier and this obviously gives impact on your shots. Because of the rain and the wind, you cannot make the ball go with the speed and to the direction you want. In these cases, you need to put more strength to your shots to make sure the ball go as you want it to. One thing that you have to bear in mind is the contact point between your club head and the ground. Normally you hit right at the ground behind the ball to make the swing perfect but now, you should not dig too deep into the ground or else your shot may lose its power. This means that you have to aim correctly, grab your club handle firmly but swing it smoothly. It is the same for playing in a sand bunker, you need to be more flexible when playing it.

When you know how to deal with the rain, you are not afraid of it anymore. You now know what the rain does to you, your ball and your golf field so you know how to deal with it. With the advices above, you can feel comfortable when you are invited to a game during the rainy season because you know you can do it well as usual.
