I was out playing yesterday in strong winds. I used to dislike playing in really windy conditions but as my golf has improved I have really come to like it. You really need to control the ball flight when playing in wind. Hit it a bit thin or a bit high and you will be punished directly whereas on a calm day it may not make that big of a difference. I manage to get a decent result despite the wind. The disappointment was the first nine and I was five over at the turn. Luckily my ball striking improved on the last nine and I managed to play them one over par for a total 78.
