Playing Golf In Winter

Friday, November 11, 2016

Winter starts earlier for golfers than it does for most people. During the warmer months of golf season — April to November — golfers can enjoy playing in dry and warm weather. These weather conditions allow the ball to travel farther and more smoothly.

Now that winter is here, golfers need to adjust their playing strategy for making different shots to get the same successful results. Cooler winter temperatures and wet fairways cause the ball to not travel as far and to sit lower in the grass. Winds are often stronger in the winter and may cause the ball to stray from your intended path.

There are many ways to improve your golf performance during winter. To give your shot more impact, try moving the ball back in your stance slightly before you swing. Now is a great time of year to experiment with hybrid clubs. If your shot is typically long, try using wood clubs instead of iron.

With the proper technique and preparation, winter weather won’t affect your golf abilities. You’ll continue to win big all year round! If you’re interested in sponsoring a hole in one, putting, or shootout contest, contact US Hole In One by calling 888-882-5440 or emailing
