Golf Tip – Downwind Shots

downwind shotsBe careful on downwind shots to a green.  On your approach shot, if you have a strong wind behind you take an extra second or two to think about your distance.  The wind will help propel your ball further.  However, the spin will be reduced as well.  Use a shorter club, and look for a spot to land your ball.  If the turf is firm, you may want to land the ball short of the green and bounce it on toward the hole.  It is also a good idea to flight your ball down, so that it does not get way up into the air and carry over the green.
