PUTT WITH CONFIDENCE IN WINDY CONDITIONS
People who don’t play links golf very often always underestimate how the wind affects their putting stroke. It’s obviously going to affect the pace of the putt, as well as the break, but most misses come as a result of poor set-up and a stroke which is being blown around by the wind. To stop this from happening, try widening your stance and standing a little closer to the ball, so your elbows are tucked in close to your chest. A good tip is to feel like you’re almost squeezing your pecs with your biceps and bending more from the hips, rather than sitting back on your heels. This will get your eyeline directly over the ball and help to steady your stroke by making everything more compact.
