Successful Putting In Windy Conditions

By Chad Jones

This time of year, the weather can change drastically from day to day. The most difficult days to putt are the really windy days. The next time you find yourself playing a round of golf in windy conditions, I recommend trying these simple tips. First, do not place your putter on the ground behind the ball. This will save you strokes if the ball would happen to move. By doing this, a player would not have addressed the ball and would not be given a penalty stroke. Secondly, I would suggest speeding up your routine over the ball. It might feel uncomfortable at first when you try this, but it will potentially give the wind less time to osculate your ball. Lastly, slightly widen your stance and place the pressure on the inside of your legs. This will help create a steadier base and a better foundation for your stroke. Practicing these simple tips before you tee off will surely give you a putting edge over your playing partners in windy conditions.
