Playing in the Wind

A dewsweeper writes in for some help on the golf course playing in the wind.

I would give you the following suggestion. Remember that the harder you swing the more the ball ill spin. The more spin the ball has the harder it is to control the ball in the wind.

I Always give students the advice to take a little more club and choke down on the club and swing the club at a slower speed. This will impart less spin on the ball and make it easier to control the trajectory and distance.

When you find yourself in the range where you would normally have to hit a hard sand wedge make sure you hit your gap or pitching wedge easy.

Try this in the wind and see if you don’t control your golf ball better and hit more quality shots in the wind.
