Let the wind be your friend!

In windy conditions, most amateurs try to fight the wind. They usually swing harder, it’s human nature. Into the wind, take more club and make a controlled 3/4 swing. You want less spin on the ball to cut thru the wind. Downwind you can hit it hard to get it up in the wind and carry as the ball will spin more. Regardless, let the wind be your friend and allow it to move your shot. Play for the movement, don’t fight it! A more skilled player can hold the ball against the wind with movement but the majority of players would be better off making allowances for the wind.
