Weird, I played 2 rounds last night & felt the wind 9-11 MPH behaved perfectly.

I think the wind is affecting the ball flight realistically in the rounds I've played.  Its affect on the SpeedTrees in 10+ MPH winds is a different story, however.

I also feel wind does much of nothing. 145 yard par 3 into 12mph wind and no need to adjust at all.

Wind feels about the same as in TGC2 to me. Mostly right if not a bit over done in some situations.

A decent rule of thumb irl is 1 per cent per mph of wind if you're hitting into it.  And .5 percent  per mph of wind if you're going down wind. 

So, a 160 yard par 3 into a 10 mph wind would play like 176 yards if no other adjustments were made (like de lofting).  Downwind, it would play like 152 yards. 

You guys could test to see if the game is close to that.  The rule is for carry distance only.

This was very helpful for me. I was simply guessing 1 each way. Thanks!

I've had what I think was unrealistic (too much) effects on wedges even the lob wedge.  In TGC2 I'm pretty sure the wind didn't affect wedges at all.  I believe HBS stated that somewhere.

Wind is strange to think about.  Even a dead cross wind shot is technically into the wind.  If you want to hit a normal shot that ends at the pin, you need to aim upwind to make it happen.  So, the ball fights the wind and has to travel further ground distance to get there. 

And the asymetry between upwind and downwind is counter intuitive.  But if you increase the wind to say 100 mph, you see why.  Into the wind, your shot will go nowhere... Or backwards.  Downwind, it may only go 2x as far (not infinite distance).

I was always very critical of the wind in TGC2. Living and playing in West Texas I know what 15-20mph and more on a daily basis feels and plays like. While I thought wind effects in TGC2 were over-stated, in my 3 rounds with 2019 I feel just the opposite.

There are so many factors going into swing results for each level (beginner, pro, master), it may be other things that are off-setting the wind. Things like tempo, side-hill/down-hill lies, etc...

I think HB got it right for the most part.

I played a course the other night with winds of 15-17 mph.  It was a challenge but I felt that I had make the correct adjustments.  Trees were blowing like crazy.
