How does everyone here cope against wind? When I play, I wait until the wind goes down, then I drive it, unless I'm putting it.

Change my style shots, try and keep drives lower, play more chip and runs rather than high lofted shots.

So, you mean, you try to 'cut' through the wind more with ball? I hit it high and it just goes crazy when the wind is coming, especially when the wind is hard.

Yeah, keep the ball lower, make the ball run further than you normally would by hitting low punch shots.

The less time the ball stays in the air - the less it will be effected by the wind.

Ok, I see now. Makes more sense since the higher it goes, the more the wind will hit it and the more interference will affect it. Thanks fitz!

Put the ball back in your stance and keep it under the wind.

As said before, I always try to keep the ball low. I would rather have it short then in the rough or trees somewhere.
