Wind can play havoc with your golf ball and can be incredibly hard to judge accurately, which is why it’s important to be in control of your ball flight – particularly when playing into the prevailing wind.
Keeping the ball low to the ground will minimise the wind’s effect and ensure you stay in control of its destination rather than allowing it to balloon up into the air.
Key points for keeping the ball low in the wind:
Move the ball back in your stance – this will create a more downward strike while reducing the loft on the clubface.
Keep your weight on your left side a little bit more through your swing – this will help keep your hands slightly further forward at impact, reducing the club’s loft.
