Sounds like the ignition switch has gone kaput. The ignition switch come in two pieces, an electrical switch and a mechanical switch.
The switch electrical portion can be replaced separatly from the mechanical portion (tumbler that the key engages). It is not a real difficult repair but requires some mechanical knowlege of how the column is assembled.
This can be verified with electrical test equipment prior to buying a new electrical switch.
I had this problem before, replace your cap & rotor if it wont start in the rain after that then replace your spark plug wires it will run you about 60 bucks for everything depending on where you go and then your on your way in the rain. Some hair line cracks can form in the cap that are not visible to the eye, and for the wires the can be shorting out to the block or head which is also not visible to the eye.
ignition switch on its way out, as a golf owner im sure awre theyre common, also possible ignition relay, though i reckon ignition switch it has two outputs and they fail intermittanly, eventualy they will stop all tgether,new swith bout £20 though fitting means removal of steering wheel and a puller is required to remove the housing.
Good luck Davelee
