Playing with a cross wind
When the wind comes across the fairway, some people think they have work against it so they don't go off course.
But my advice would be to let the wind do the work.
So if the wind is left to right and you naturally fade the ball then don't try and draw the ball into the wind.
Just aim further left and use your natural stroke.
Don't try and play a shot you're not used to. Save that for a calm day on the practice range.
Then if the wind is right to left and you fade the ball then you'll be fine and your natural stroke will keep the ball straight.
If you can't fade or draw the ball and the wind is left to right, just aim left of the green without aiming for trouble.
Aim for the fringe of the green, not the bunker or the rough. That way if the wind doesn't affect it then you're not in trouble.
Just aim for a safe part of the course.
