  9. Swing easy during breezy weather
  10. Many people think that they should hit the golf ball harder in a windy weather. However, this is a wrong approach. Instead, you should make a controlled and smooth swing at around 80 per cent.

  11. Understand the wind
  12. It is important for you to know how the wind will influence certain shots. The beginning and end of your shot depends on the direction of the wind and the ball spin.

  13. Fight the wind
  14. This means if the wind is blowing from right to left, then you must try to hit a fade right at the target, if you are a right handed golfer. This way the golf ball sidespin will offset the wind and thus generate a moderately straight shot.

  15. Do not risk it
  16. You should know when you must cut your losses and draw back. Otherwise, the wind will expose you. Do not challenge green bunkers or trail sucker pins.
