In the days of changing weather in late Autumn – early Winter, the atmosphere is cooler and idealler for relaxing golf rounds. Golf courses will be less sunny however more windy, and this is a con to your swings. So, how can we fly the ball against the winds and away?
The basic rule is to hit a low and straight line, instead of getting it high up. And to hit it this way, there are a few notes to remember:
- Club: ones with small loft
- Club head setup: to put the ball in the center of the head
- Stance: a bit further from the ball than normal
- Swing: avoid wrist twisting in backswing and use 65-70% of normal power.
A smaller loft angle can reduce the height of ball flight. The adjustments in club setup and stance can help lower the impact point, decrease spinning and high flying, while no wrist twisting will close the club face and create a lower trajectory.
Another tips is to define the wind direction and force by looking at trees and leaves nearby, so that you can decide whether to hit the ball or wait for a calm down.
