A Storm is on It's Way - Let's Play Golf

Feb 27, 2008
The game of golf can pit us against some exteme challenges if bad weather moves in. How we respond can make all the difference in the world, not only in this game but in future games. A "quitter" will sabatoge his future game.

Bad weather and poor playing conditions on the golf course can either bring the best out of you, or, regretfully, the worst, depending entirely upon your attitude! Most of us who have a great adoration, bordering on carnal desire, for golf absolutely derive pleasure from it when the conditions on the course change at the drop of a hat. That is what makes golf fun and almost brazen.

Think about it, if you make every shot with a faultless lie, with absolutely no wind, and with zero barierss to play around, then what would be the challenge? Of course the game would be much easier and you would probably score very well on each game you play, but there's no zest when constantly playing in perfect conditions, no adaptation required, nothing to test our abilities at golf, nothing to learn.

The Bliss Of Overcoming Stormy Weather

Overcoming the ever-changing challenges of golf is what it's all about. What changes are out there that can make the game exciting? For starters, bad weather! Having a storm roll in at the last minute can cause all kinds of obstacles that may dramatically change the game.

Golf is an outdoor sport, always has been, and always will be. It's an admirable and beautiful thing, knocking out a good round with your friends under the great blue sky, getting a sexy suntan, and watching nature as you move from hole to hole. However, this perfect picture can change in an instant when a storm hits the area. Every shot you make will be affected by these weather conditions.

The good players, those that have an affirmative mental attitude will adapt to these challenges and will adjust to the changes in the environment and on the course. Other men and women who respond to stormy weather as annoying, and obviously have a bad attitude, will complain and more than likely quit their game out of total discomfiture.

Learn To Take Advantage Of Poor Playing Conditions, Like The Pros Do

Ironically, there are many accomplished and professional golf players that actually prefer to play in bad weather. This, of course, completely changes their shots from hole to hole, their total game. The reason they enjoy this is so that their competition will obviously not do as well as normally expected.

While those of us like you and I do not compete and are playing golf purely for enjoyment, professionals that are competing in major tournaments are out there solely to win. The competition is bloodthirsty and stormy weather will bring out the very best in those players who can adapt.

When the weather brings a bad turn during these tournaments, those players that only fare well in normal conditions are eliminated. Then only the better, more experienced golf players are left to compete. These men and women are able to use the conditions to their advantage including the wind, the precipitation, and the extreme temperatures.

So, the bottom line is, take full advantage of the so-called bad breaks. Turn them into your advantage to make yourself a better golfer. That's what the pros do.
