Golfing In The Wind

Oct 16, 2007
Wind and other weather conditions can play a large role in the quality of your game. Even though you may have the perfect stance, the right club in hand, and the right green conditions, if the wind is blowing too hard in one direction or there is a cross breeze, your ball will not land where you intended. For the beginning golfer, this can be very frustrating. Even in the best golf weather, new golfers will have difficulty controlling the ball, so you can imagine their frustration when the wind begins to blow.

But in order to become a better golfer, you will have to learn how to golf in different weather conditions. Depending on where you live, the course may be drier or wet during different times during the year. The same occurs with wind. If decide to travel to another course in a different country, you will face other wind and weather challenges. Learning how to golf despite these challenges is important if you want to enjoy golf for most of the year.

If the wind is extreme, you can forget about golf that day because most courses will be closed, but even if the wind is whipping around, you may still be able to play. Compensating for the wind by playing into it is the best way to get your ball where you need it to go. Work against the wind and your ball will end up anywhere but where you need it to be. Some golfers change their stance, while others use different clubs depending on the strength of the wind and its direction. Feeling where the wind is coming from is your first step. The second step is to choose the right clubs, and the third step is to choose how hard to hit the ball.

The ideal golf weather is a light breeze that keeps you cool, but does not affect the game. While some courses have beautiful weather almost all year, other places only have this weather for two or three months. This is why learning how to play regardless of the weather is important. During your lessons, you should learn tips and tricks for predicting the weather conditions, which way the wind is blowing, and which clubs to use in order to maintain as much control of the ball as possible.

For many golfers, wind is their worst enemy. But in order to become a great golfer, you must learn to respect what is going on around you and learn how to find ways to stay in the game without letting the weather affect your score.
