Playing golf in the wind. Mainly, play the ball as close to the ground as possible. The low ball golf strategy is common practice around the courses in Ireland, Scotland, England and Wales.
There are a wide range of variations on how to play the ball lower to the ground in the wind. Such as taking a club less and hit the ball softer. Hit the ball softer for better-centred ball strikes. Take a club more into the wind, aline the ball towards the centre of your stance and make a shorter backswing than normal, hit the ball and wala! A lower ball flight.
However, we say, take a trip to your local golf pro and work with he or she on how to hit the ball lower.
