Many times we face difficult shots with wind. In a 100-metre shot our club selection under normal conditions would be 9-iron or pitching wedge.
What do you use if the wind is strong in your face?
If you use a 9-iron or pitching wedge the ball is going to spin back more and then fly higher in order to achieve the right distance.

The suggestion is, next time you face this shot, try playing a half swing with a 6 or 5-iron, gripping down the club with the same ball position. Gripping it short will make your swing narrower and that, combined with the degree of the clubface, will make your ball fly in a lower trajectory with less spin, so you will reach the distance with no trouble.
