If mastering the golf swing isn't hard enough, trying to predict how the ball will move through the air or roll on the green is not just a matter of art, but also one of science. Golf is not played in a vacuum, but rather in a constantly changing environment in which the player and equipment are exposed to a variety of conditions. By applying scientific principles to explain how environmental factors such as rain, wind, temperature, or even grass type can influence your score, Andrew Collinson and Sandy Willmott provide answers to some of the more perplexing questions about the impact the environment has on our golf performance.
