windy golf

Blowing hard!

When you are faced with a stiff wind in your face there are some important points to follow. Most importantly don't try to swing harder, if you swing too fast you will create more backspin and send the ball higher giving the wind more chance to take over. A slower swing will keep the ball down and give you a better chance of coping with the conditions. Take a couple extra clubs, squat down a little, play the ball an inch farther back in your stance and then make a three-quarter swing. Remember when the wind is in your face any curve you put on the ball will be exaggerated. If you play a draw or fade be sure and aim accordingly to give your ball some room to move.
