Accessing Wind Direction

Accessing Wind Direction is the act of determining where the wind is blowing, an important step in deciding which club to hit on a given shot. Wind can significantly affect how far the ball carries in the air.

Right-to-Left Wind

Right-to-Left wind is air that moves across from the right to the left. A golfer should aim just right of the target to compensate for this wind direction.

Left-to-Right Wind

Left-to-Right Wind wind is air that moves across from the left to the right. A golfer should aim just left of the target to compensate for this wind direction.

Head Wind

Head wind is air that travels in the opposite direction of where the golfer is trying to hit the golf ball. A head wind causes the ball to travel a shorter distance, meaning a golfer needs to use a longer club to compensate.

Tale Wind

Tale wind is air that travels in the direction of where the golfer is trying to hit the golf ball. A tale wind causes the ball to travel a greater distance, meaning a golfer needs to use a shorter club to compensate.
