Hello, my name is John Webster, Master Instructor for Jim McLean at the Doral Resort and Spa. Down in Florida, it is quite common to get high, heavy winds and on this flat terrain you need to know how to control your golf ball.
How to Hit a Low Shot in High Winds
Hitting a low shot is going to be much more advantageous than letting your ball get up high and play in the wind. To do this here are a few simple things you can do at set up to help promote that.
The first is to choke down on the club just slightly. You are probably going to take a club which is a little stronger, not weaker, as well. As you walk into the ball keep the ball back in your stance just slightly and lean your weight left, let’s say about 60 percent, and just leave it there. Now as you move into the ball, finish low and that should promote that low ballflight.
