Do you ever remember putting on a snowsuit and going outside when you were younger? Or even with your kids recently? Moving around in that snowsuit or in any winter gear at all restricts your mobility. The elements in golf impact us similarly to wearing snow gear. Ranging from cold to hot conditions, windy and wet, golf offers it all! If you are inadequately prepared for the round, then you are doing yourself a disservice. Golf is a sport where YOU are your own equipment manager, so start acting like it! Before you come up with all the reasons why you shot a 92 in the rain, try putting on some rain gear and swinging and seeing what type of effect it has on your ability to rotate and create speed. Does this affect your carry? How about your shoes, are they waterproof? Do you have enough gloves, balls and tees? As a junior golfer, these things are vital to understand at a young age. There are always bulk equipment specials with gloves and balls available where you can stock up and save some money over the year knowing that you will be playing lots of golf. I hear it all the time from high level players that the course was tough, it was wet and it affected scoring. With it being as simple as checking the weather app, you can help predict the weather and should always keep any equipment you may need close by. Hopefully the good weather comes back to us soon up here in the northeast so we can all get back out on the golf course!
