When Its Breezy, Time To Swing Easy

There is a tendency to swing harder in the wind. While it takes mental discipline, the best approach is to swing with less swing speed and focus on solid contact. Ever notice how some of your best shots seemed almost effortless? Use a relaxed, slower tempo, with more club (less loft) into the wind. It doesn’t matter if you take out a five iron for 130 yard shot. It’s much easier to hit as the ball will more naturally stay down and not balloon up. Also, for better players, try to move the ball with the direction of the wind versus trying to fight against it. Wind can be your friend, so swing easy when it’s breezy!
