It was evident that this year\'s Masters was played in difficult conditions: Weather,
course conditions, and those undulating greens that Augusta National Golf Club is
known for

All of these factors took a toll on the world\'s best players. But how can Mr/Mrs
average golfer compete with less than favorable conditions?

First of all there\'s not much you can do about the weather, unless you decide not to
play. But here are a couple of tips.

In windy and cold conditions always take more club! The harder you try to hit a shot
the more the ball can \"balloon\" and the more any sidespin is magnified. This could
be one, two, or even three clubs more than usual. In loosening up for the round pay
particular attention to how far the ball is flying then hit with different clubs to
find out which one gets to your normal distance.

In the cold, dress in layers, keep a hand warmer handy, and keep extra golf balls in
your pocket to try and keep them as warm as possible. Warm golf balls fly farther
then cold ones!

When you add rain to this the key piece advice is to make sure that your hands, golf
glove, clubs and grips stay dry! Take extra towels, rain suit, and gloves to help.

Since you will have extra clothing on you won\'t be able to make the same length
backstroke without a lot of effort. Don\'t worry about this, just make sure to keep
your stroke comfortable with a firm foundation. Excessive movement is one of the
things that kill most golfer\'s games.

If all else fails, wait until another day when the weather is better. There\'s an old
story that goes like this: Two guys are sitting around the clubhouse and one asks
the other, \"So what do you shoot?\" The other guy replies, \"Usually in the low 70\'s -
any colder then that and I don\'t play.\"
