Summary:
Wind and other weather conditions can play a large role in the quality of
your game. Even though you may have the perfect stance, the right club in
hand, and the right green conditions, if the wind is blowing too hard in

Wind and other weather conditions can play a large role in the quality of
your game. Even though you may have the perfect stance, the right club in
hand, and the right green conditions, if the wind is blowing too hard in
one direction or there is a cross breeze, your ball will not land where
you intended. For the beginning golfer, this can be very frustrating.
Even in the best golf weather, new golfers will have difficulty
controlling the ball, so you can imagine their frustration when the wind
begins to blow.

But in order to become a better golfer, you will have to learn how to
golf in different weather conditions. Depending on where you live, the
course may be drier or wet during different times during the year. The
same occurs with wind. If decide to travel to another course in a
different country, you will face other wind and weather challenges.
Learning how to golf despite these challenges is important if you want to
enjoy golf for most of the year.

If the wind is extreme, you can forget about golf that day because most
courses will be closed, but even if the wind is whipping around, you may
still be able to play. Compensating for the wind by playing into it is
the best way to get your ball where you need it to go. Work against the
wind and your ball will end up anywhere but where you need it to be. Some
golfers change their stance, while others use different clubs depending
on the strength of the wind and its direction. Feeling where the wind is
coming from is your first step. The second step is to choose the right
clubs, and the third step is to choose how hard to hit the ball.

The ideal golf weather is a light breeze that keeps you cool, but does
not affect the game. While some courses have beautiful weather almost all
year, other places only have this weather for two or three months. This
is why learning how to play regardless of the weather is important.
During your lessons, you should learn tips and tricks for predicting the
weather conditions, which way the wind is blowing, and which clubs to use
in order to maintain as much control of the ball as possible.

For many golfers, wind is their worst enemy. But in order to become a
great golfer, you must learn to respect what is going on around you and
learn how to find ways to stay in the game without letting the weather
affect your score.
