Read the wind

Practice is usually a repetitive process in consistent conditions. Play, for most golfers, is a game of between 75 and 100 shots with each shot presenting very different challenges.

Then there’s hitting to a target that is above or below you. And if that isn’t enough, there’s wind strength and direction and rain and moisture to consider.

Before we consider the impact of target elevation change or the wind you need to have a good foundation: how far do you hit each club when you make a perfect strike and how far do you hit the ball usually with that club? Come and see us if you’d like help with this.
