Determining how the wind will effect a golf shot, and how to compensate for it, is certainly not an exact science; it’s more of a black art, in which experience plays a big part. Most amateur golfers severely underestimate the effects of the wind, and it can play havoc with their scores. Using a few simple techniques, however, can help to significantly improve your chances of success.
or Log In…and the ball will ride the wind rather than resist it, and you’ll miss the target by a mile!
Work hard on your visualisation, picturing what the wind is doing to the ball during each part of its flight, then learn from your experience, and you’ll soon be taking more control and shooting lower scores in windy conditions.
Remember: more club, grip down, easy swing.
