How to Play Better in the Wind?

Dewsweeper writes in and wants to know how to play better in wind.

Obviously the player wants to hit the ball lower. However it is important to do this the correct way and to hit the correct shots around the course. You can do this by playing ball slightly back as well as getting the chest more forward at impact. I prefer a combination of the two.

Biggest mistake players make when playing in the wind is that they try and hit shots harder into the wind. Harder swings produce more speed. More speed produces more spin and gets the ball out of control.

Try using more club and less arm speed which will result ina ball that stays down with less spin and will give you more control over the shot.

Don’t under estimate the wind and allow for the cross wind as well as it can greatly affect the flight of the ball.
