Weather can vastly impact the game of golf, and even the golfer. Wind is a golfer's worst enemy because it can completely change the flight of the ball. In a tailwind, the ball will travel father, while crosswinds can force a ball in a completely different direction. Novice golfers have an especially hard time gauging wind impacts, as wind speeds can vary in the air and near the surface.
Rain makes it difficult to grip the club, and the soggy grass can make putting quite difficult. Another factor is cold weather. Aside from rattling the golfer's concentration, the ball will not travel as far when it is cold outside. There are even ways you can adjust your golf swing to counteract the colder weather. Since cold air is heavier, it creates additional resistance against the golf ball. This will naturally entice you to swing harder, while forcing you out of position.
You can help minimize these mistakes by shooting for a shallower arc on the ball. Also, make sure your shoulders are properly positioned, while not allowing your right shoulder to come up too high through the hitting area.
