Bring the gear you’ll need to stay dry and warm if the weather gets worse. A foldable umbrella, rain jacket, gloves, and rain pants are all a good idea. Dress in layers so that you will be warm enough and can shed a layer or two if the weather gets better.
Don’t Hit as Hard
If it’s windy out, you might think the best strategy is to hit your ball harder than you normally would, but the opposite is actually true. Hitting your ball a little less hard than usual will give it less height so it will be less affected by the wind.
Wear Waterproof Shoes
There’s just no way you’re going to play your best if you have cold, soggy feet. Invest in a pair of good waterproof shoes to keep your toes dry on the course. You’ll play better and have way more fun.
Warm Up Your Ball
Golf balls don’t perform as well when they get too cold, so it’s a good idea to keep a ball in your pocket during bad weather games. This way, your body heat keeps the ball warm and when you hit it, it will perform as it usually does.
Warm Up Your Body
Walk the course more than riding in the golf cart on a cold-weather day. This will warm up your muscles and keep your body ready to swing, which is especially important on a colder day. And don’t forget to stretch!
To dry off your clubs and yourself! You should always bring at least one towel in your golf bag no matter the weather, but when things are cool and damp it’s a good idea to pack a few extras. You may need to dry things off more frequently.
