Slow Down in the Wind

Many players speed up – their swings, their pace of play – when playing the winds. Don’t.

Watch a foursome playing the course on a windy day and you’re likely to see some fast play: they walk faster between shots, they take less time in their preshot routine, and – perhaps most importantly – they swing faster. This leads to inconsistency and poor ball striking.

In the wind, make a conscious effort to take your time and to swing with a slower tempo. You’ll strike the ball with less spin and cleaner contact.
