Jerry King: Playing in the Wind


Brought to you by


One of the hardest things to do in golf is to play in the wind. The wind causes way more problems than we expect. In order for you to be successful in the wind, you are going to have to change a few things about your approach. Jerry King, former Director of the Kapalua Resort Golf Academy and now the Director of Instruction at the Discovery Land Company at in Mexico, gives us a great lesson on how to deal with the wind. The goal when you play in the wind is to hit the ball lower, which means you are going to have to alter your swing a bit. In order to hit the ball high, you finish your swing high allowing the ball to jump up into the air. If you want it to go low, you finish your swing lower than normal.
