     It's not really noticable at low wind speeds but at 10-15 MPH winds you can't see the wind move the ball. The golf ball doesn't fly up in to the air in the direction you aimed and then get moved by the wind, it begins flight in the direction where it is going to land after the wind has moved it.

     I'm not quite sure how you came to that conclusion, but to disprove what you are saying, I suggest you play the Wolf Creek Leaderboard Challenge tournament and watch the wind move the ball.

    I'm not with ya either. Two digits winds usually always move the ball in the air. Sure there is your share of variances left or right, but that really has nothing to do with the wind.

    The ball does move in the air but if you look closely the ball does not start in the direction you originally aimed.

    Sorry... what I mean is the physics are correct but the animation is wrong.
