Breeze Through Your Putts

The wind can wreak havoc on your putting game, turning what should be a simple tap-in into a nerve-wracking challenge.But with the right strategies and mindset, you can conquer the wind and sink those putts like a pro.


In this article, we'll share five tried-and-true pro tips to help you navigate windy putting conditions with confidence and precision. Let’s get right to it.

1. Use Gusts To Your Advantage

Instead of fighting against the wind, embrace it as a natural part of the game. Take some time to observe how the wind is affecting the movement of the trees, flags, and grass around the green.


By understanding the direction and strength of the wind, you can adjust your putting strategy accordingly and use it to your advantage.

2. Keep it Low

When putting in windy conditions, aim to keep your putts low to the ground. A lower trajectory reduces the impact of the wind and increases your chances of making a solid connection with the ball.


Focus on hitting the ball with a smooth, controlled stroke, keeping the putter face square to your target line throughout the putt.

4. Play the Break

Windy conditions can amplify the break of the green, making it even more crucial to read the putt correctly.


Take your time to assess the slope and grain of the green, and visualize the path your ball will take as it rolls towards the hole. Adjust your aim and speed accordingly to account for any deviations caused by the wind.

5. Firm Up Your Grip

In windy conditions, it's essential to maintain a firm grip on your putter to ensure stability and control throughout your stroke.


Grip the putter with slightly more pressure than usual, but be careful not to tense up too much, as this can lead to a jerky, inconsistent stroke. Find the right balance of tension and relaxation that allows you to putt with confidence and fluidity.
