Windy Golfing Tips

Playing golf in the wind can be tricky. When you’re focusing on a shot, there are so many other things you’re thinking about; where you’re trying to aim the ball, how is your posture, what are you going to focus on during your swing, and more. When it’s windy, you also have to take into consideration how the wind might affect your ball, in the air and on the ground. Here are some basic tips for playing on a blustery fall day.

Posture

One thing that is important to note in very windy conditions is your posture. The windier it is the more likely you are to be off balance. So get your stance a little closer to the ground, and make sure that you feel balanced before you take your swing. If you lower your center of gravity you’ll feel more connected to the ground, and chances are you’ll take a better swing.

In the Air

Playing in the wind would be easier if the wind would stay constant not shift direction. Typically this isn’t the case, the wind is constantly changing and it’s hard to predict what shot is best. It can be hard to predict where it will fall or how it will travel mid-air. If the wind is strong enough it will mess with your golf balls trajectory mid-air.

Remember, that if its only a breezy day, there’s no reason to go overboard worrying about your swing. If the wind isn’t strong enough it might not affect your ball in the air. Most people anticipate a stronger wind and hit their ball too hard, missing the target and causing a higher score. Be sure to really analyze if the wind warrants a stronger swing or not, before you mess up the hole.

Something to note is that in super windy places, most players tend to keep their balls closer to the ground. They know that hitting higher means that their ball is more likely to travel in ways they can’t anticipate. The longer your ball is in the air, the higher the chances are that the wind is going to take it places that you don’t want it to go. Remember that in the wind, keeping your ball lower to the ground might very well keep your score lower too.

How it affects roll

The wind won’t only affect your ball in the air, but it might also cause your ball to roll. If it’s windy enough for this to happen, you might want to consider calling it a day and heading home. Sometimes it can be hard to even mark where your ball lands before the wind rolls it away. It can be hard to score during conditions like this so it’s up to you whether or not you want to invest your time in these conditions.

Take Away

Remember that a shy breeze is nothing to be scared off by when you’re playing golf. Sometimes it will hardly affect your game, and it adds a fresh element to being outdoors. If the wind is strong enough to be knocking you off balance, change the flight path of your ball, and causing it to roll once it’s landed, you might be best advised to pick up your game on another day.

Baseball and Golf

While you may not thing the two sports have much in common, you might be surprised by this tactic for fairway bunkers. It pulls from the sport of baseball, and the similarities in your swing and aiming tactics. While it can be hard to draw comparisons between the two sports, the swing is perhaps the strongest link. It’s definitely not the score, trust us.

When it’s similar

If you have a ball that’s at the top lip of a fairway bunker, you’ll have to stand in the hazard to attempt to hit the ball. If you stand there, the ball will be roughly waist height. Which reminds us of where the ball would be playing baseball or t-ball. So if you can put yourself in a similar mindset, you might just be able to knock this one out of the park. Take a moment with your remote controlled golf cart and breathe, before you take the shot.

Where to hold your iron

Trust us, this is a hard one to hit, and if you don’t get it, you’re in the majority. So here are some tips for the next time it happens to you. Try to stand in a semi-normal position, even though it will feel off because of the golf balls location. We’d suggest using your 7-iron for this shot, because all you’re trying to do is hit the ball far enough so that you can finish the job with a wedge.

Focus on your aim

If your ball is at waist height for this bunker, your swing should be really flat. Most likely you’ll wind up pulling more left. So try to aim your focus a little to the right. Aim for right field if you will, and try to hit your ball about 20 yards to the right of where you really want the ball to go.

The swing

If you imagine that you’re hitting a waist high fastball, chances are you’re going to crush this. So pretend you’re hitting a fast one, and attempt to knock it out of the park, all while aiming for right field. A great tip here; pretend that you’re swinging across your dining room table. Don’t hit it, but try to swing your iron just across the top of the table. If you keep your club right below shoulder level, you should be golden.

The Outcome

For most, this is a difficult shot at best, but it can be fun to pull in your knowledge of another sport and try your best at an otherwise difficult swing. Whether you’re a slugger or a golfer, we wish you the best with this swing.

How to Play on Any Golf Course

Playing a new course can be tough. Whether you’re playing with other people who play there all the time, or it’s a new course for all of you, it can still be tough to play it for the first time. It’s important to keep your mental game as close, as your clubs, gear, and remote-control golf caddy. Keeping your mental game strong, will help you get over small setbacks and prevent them from becoming larger hang-ups.

First Steps

Focus on getting off of the first tee, and start getting ready for your next shot. If you don’t dwell on any mistakes you made on the first tee, and you’re constantly looking forward to your next move, chances are, you’ll play a better game of golf.

Next, choose your next club. Don’t spend too much time trying to find the perfect one. Just choose the one that will allow you to hit the way you want to, whether it’s hitting the ball entirely on the green, or if you’re just trying to get the ball closer to home.

Remember that shorter clubs are easier to deal with than longer clubs, so if you just want to hit the ball down the fairway use the club you like best. Rather than spending time deciding which one you think is best to use, go with the club that you like best or that you’re most comfortable with. Chances are if you like it best, or it feels most comfortable, you’ll make a better shot with it.

Moving On

Remember not to let yourself get nervous. It can be extremely fun to play a course for the first time. Let yourself be challenged, but don’t let it overwhelm you.

When you’re hitting your ball, don’t over think things. Don’t try to scoop your ball with your club. Only focus on making good and solid contact with the ball, and you’ll find that this works best.

Enjoy yourself

Have fun playing a new course with friends. Having a challenge like a difficult new course can only improve your golf game. Stay hydrated, and keep your mental game positive. Enjoy being out on the golf course with friends, and soon you’ll find that you’re ready to take on any new course with your remote control golf cart. Relax and let the swings come as they may.

5 Tips for a Better Golf Swing

It can be hard to focus on everything you’ve been told to do when you play golf, and sometimes you just want to get out there and block it all out. We’re here with five tips for improving your golf swing, and keep you mentally and physically prepared for your next swing. Breaking it down to five things keeps it easy, and helps you relax and enjoy yourself out on the green. Read on, and grab your golf gear, a buddy, and a remote control golf cart, and head out for a game of golf.

Before you swing

Before you swing make sure that you have everything in place. Make sure that your club-face, feet, hips and shoulders are all aligned. And not just aligned together, aligned so that they’ll hit your target. This is the most important part of your swing. Whether or not your actual swing is great, depends on your alignment. If you don’t take the time to align your swing, you’ll have difficulty getting the ball on the green. A note for your alignment: Anything you do should feel tension-free and comfortable. If you’re tense while you’re swinging, it will never work like you want it to. So align your swing, and make sure you stay relaxed while doing it.

Starting your Swing

Stay connected to your swing. That can mean a lot of different things for different golfers, but it’s important to feel connected through each stage of your swing. Remember to keep your club, hands, arms and body moving in one direction together. Disconnecting from your swing, can bring trouble about your downswing. Keep your hands from taking over, by delaying your wrist right until your golf club shaft is parallel to the ground.

Backswing

Your backswing is important to the entirety of your swing. If your body doesn’t feel right, or your body feels like it’s blocking your club from completing your backswing you should probably analyze your entire swing. Be sure to make a full turn in your backswing, with your upper body going back.

Your Hips

It’s important to let your hips lead in a swing. By letting your hips lead, you’re getting your swing started correctly, and letting whatever happens follow. If you finish your swing and realize that something is off, go back to your hips.

Take Away

It’s hard to listen to every bit of golfing advise, and it’s important to take what works for you and leave the rest. You know your body best, so do what works for you. These are tips that pros and the majority of golfers swear by, but if it’s not for you, and it doesn’t work for your swing, keep working on it your way. The most important part of golf is to relax and have fun. Grab a friend and your electric golf trolley and head out to work on your swing, and play a round.
