Tips from The Tour - Tim Clark Iron Shot Into the Wind
Posted: November 19, 2013
Playing in the wind can be challenging for any player. So, we arranged a meeting with Titleist Brand Ambassador Tim Clark, who offered to provide some help.
Tim has long been known as one the most accurate players on Tour and he's made a living charging up leaderboards when the wind starts to howl. As Tim told us, a big key to playing in the wind is keeping the ball flight down.
To achieve this lower ball flight, Tim shifts most of his weight to his left side (closest to the target) and then focuses on his second key - proper hand action.
"I like to keep my hands very dead. There’s not a lot of hand work in this swing."
The next time is up and you need to keep the ball low, take Tim's advice and flight your ball down to help control your shots and hopefully lower your scores.
