THE PRO SHOP - PLAYING IN STRONG WIND!
HOW TO PLAY GOLF IN STRONG WIND!
Wind is something that we encounter quite often on our beautiful course and thus the reason for my topic for today.
Ultimately one needs to get the balls flight down low when hitting a shot into the wind. However, I feel that many golfers do not know how to hit this type of shot.
Let us say you would normally hit your 7 iron a distance of 150m. When you are playing a round in a 30 km/h wind, which would generally be a 2 club wind, you can only expect to hit that 7 iron about 120-130m as each club would give you a 10-15m difference to the norm.
- When faced with this type of shot, select a club 1-2 clubs more than you would normally do.
- Place the ball slightly further back in the stance and execute a shorter swing, in other words a punch shot.
- Reason for the ball back in the stance is for your hands to lead through impact, resulting in you de-lofting the club ever so slightly and launching the ball at a lower trajectory.
- Swinging the club at around 80% of your normal swing will also help bring the spin rate down, eliminating any excessive shape you put on the ball.
