British Open 2016 recap: Playing in windy conditions

The first thing about playing in windy conditions is that you can't fight Mother Nature, so you have to make adjustments in your setup and how to play the course. 

One Key to good ball flight? - ALIGNMENT
The best golfers in the world check their alignment and grip all the time, yet many of avid golfers never do.In golf, a tiny mistake can become incrementally worse, eventually causing a major issue. If you are struggling, the first things you should check are your grip and alignment. Pros use alignment sticks (which can be purchased at your local Home Depot) all the time and keep them in their bags. They know that when things start feeling off and ball striking is not consistent, they go back to basics and make sure their grip and alignment is correct. Also make sure that you are balanced between both feet and from heel to toe on both feet. Next time your are out on the range please take the time to check these keys because they are the building blocks to a consistent ball flight. You can always seek out one of our pros for help!
