How to Do Better Golf Swing in Cold or Bad Weather?
Therefore, golf swing is not an easy thing for most golf players even under good weather. So, how to do golf swing well during cod or bad weather? Yes, this might be more difficult than common conditions. As we all know that cold air is heavy, therefore it creates more resistance to the flight of the ball. Cold, heavier winds naturally encourage golfers to swing harder, which will create more errors.
It will cause you to be out of position through impact, allowing your right side to dominate (for right golfers) at the inappropriate time. By having a more reckless swing to counteract the cooler weather, this action will move your right arm and shoulder out of the desired position. This will force the club head to approach the ball in a too steep angle. In golf talk: "coming over the top of the ball."
You should gear their swings to produce a lower trajectory to the flight of the ball because of the colder temperatures. To accomplish this, the swing plane (path that the club travels) should be in a shallower arc. This will allow the club head to contact the ball properly. Also, play the ball slightly back in your stance.
Actually, having your shoulders set up correctly at address is also one of the essential keys. Because having your shoulders in the proper position will encourage good shoulder motion throughout your swing. In the set-up (starting position), the right shoulder should be slightly lower than the left, with the right arm relaxed and the elbow gently tucked. From this position, the right allows the left to control the takeaway. Remember the left leads, and the right follows.
However, many players would make a common mistake that the right shoulder is too high through the hitting area. A simple, quick fix is to not allow your right shoulder to pass the ball. This will encourage you to come into the ball with more of an uppercut type blow, as opposed to a roundhouse spinning motion that is too hard to time up consistently.
Finally, you should learn to protect your head, feet and hands when playing golf under bad weather. Also, try to keep your golf balls warm as well. You should also take care of your golf clubs so that to enjoy the game better. No one can play golf without suitable tools and balls.
Next time, if you want to play golf in a cold day, do not forget to prepare all the things well before going out. And hope these small tips can help you enjoy your game in cold days.
